Park life in Dalkey for €595,000
Four-bed semi-detached house with a large back garden and peek-a-boo views of the sea
Number 10 Dalkey Park is a four-bedroom family house that was built around 1960. The owner, who has been in situ for 40 years, converted the garage. It is now a home office.
The two reception rooms are off the decent-sized hall while the sittingroom to the front has a multifuel stove. Interconnecting sliding doors lead through to the diningroom. Sliding patio doors open out to the back garden.
The kitchen-breakfast room to the rear has a wood-panelled ceiling.

While well maintained by the owner, a new buyer might want to extend out across the patio to create a larger, open-plan kitchen, living-diningroom.
The house has a sizeable back garden, more than 19m (62ft) long. This is north facing.
The house, which measures 121sq m (1,300sq ft), has an asking price of €595,000 through agents Lisney.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms. The house has what are best described as peek-a-boo sea views to the back. You can see the ferries sailing in and out. Years ago the sweep of the Baily lighthouse in Howth used to light up the rear. This has been eclipsed by mature trees to the back, although if you stand in a certain position the sea can still be seen through gaps in the greenery.
The semi-detached home is adjacent to a very large green area where the owner’s adult children spent much of their time as children.
The game of choice played there has moved from soccer to rugby. The children also used to go fishing off the rock on Coliemore Road.
The house comes to the market as the owner is downsizing, pushed by rising property tax charges, impending water levies and a garden that is now simply too big to maintain.
The property has an E2 building energy rating, side access and off-street parking for two cars.
Number 10 is well located. Dalkey village and its Dart station is a six-minute walk away.
The house is near an area known locally as The Metals. Dalkey Quarry and Victoria Hill are nearby excursions for walkers.
