Take some time out to muse on this potential mews
Anyone wanting to get their hands on Number 59 Strand Road, a period house looking right at the sea in Sandymount, Dublin 4, will have to pay around €1,295,000 for the privilege.
However, there is a possibility of recouping some money, as the property comes with full planning permission for a two-storey mews behind it.
Number 59 is a 2,239-square-foot house with four bedrooms and four reception rooms spread out over three floors.
The kitchen, measuring 11'9" by 12'3", can be found at garden level. It opens into a living room (18'9" by 12'3") at the front, and a conservatory at the back with doors to the garden. Also on this level are a bedroom or study and a guest toilet. The front door opens into a parquet-floored hallway, giving access to another living room, measuring just over 13 feet by 13. This opens through double doors into a dining room. There is another bedroom on this floor, as well as a shower room.
On the top floor are the main bedroom (19'3" by 13'3"), the fourth bedroom and a shower room.
The front of the property is paved, with space to park two cars. To the back is a garden with lawns, decking and a paved patio, with rear access to a laneway. Should the new owner be willing to sacrifice a chunk of that garden, the planning permission allows for the building of a mews house of around 1,430 square feet.
- Bennetts in Sandymount (01 260 2520) are the agents, and the property has an asking price of €1,295m.
