Make strides into The Gallops at Glencairn estate
The Glencairn estate in The Gallops, Dublin 18, takes its name from nearby Glencairn House, residence of the British ambassador to Ireland.
The estate is a series of cul-de-sacs off Murphystown Road, one judged to be "in the sticks" but today very much a home hunting ground for those moving out from Dundrum and Sandyford..
It's quite a leafy neighbourhood nowadays, though not nearly as remote as it once was, having been connected to the city centre by the Luas green line in 2010.
Number 27 Glencairn Road is a detached dormer bungalow that's been extended and renovated and given an all-round makeover in recent years.
It measures 1,780 sq ft in size, with four bedrooms and two reception rooms.
The first of these reception rooms is a large, open-plan kitchen and dining room, opening into a sunroom extension. This room has a vaulted ceiling with skylights, a white-tiled floor and a pair of glass doors leading to the garden.
The other reception room is a living room measuring 22ft by just over 12ft, with a fireplace and oak flooring.
There are also two bedrooms on the ground floor, as well as a utility room and main bathroom.
The other two bedrooms are upstairs, both ensuite. One has a door to a balcony at the front of the house, wall-to-wall fitted wardrobes, and an ensuite with whirlpool bath. The other ensuite is a shower room.
The property overlooks a small common green area to the front.
The gardens include lawns and a good-sized deck with a bar, as well as a garden shed.
There's also parking on the driveway for at least two cars.
Number 27 Glencairn Road is conveniently located not much more than 500 metres from Glencairn Luas stop.
The property is on the market for €645,000 with agent Vincent Finnegan in Dundrum (01) 298 4695.
