Family home on Iona Road for €775,000

A well proportioned 1930s semi-detached house with five bedrooms


Number 92 Iona Road is a fine semi-detached family home that has had just two owners since it was built in the 1930s.

The current owners, who bought it about 12 years ago, have extended it a number of times to provide adequate accommodation for their growing family of seven children.

The redbrick has a good-looking porch and opens into a spacious square hall. The 179sq m (1,926sq ft) property has two interconnecting reception rooms with matching fireplaces. The bow window in the sitting room to the front looks across to St Columba’s Church. Sliding doors lead through to the dining room to the rear, which has a box bay window overlooking the garden.

Extended kitchen
The family extended the kitchen to create a very large open-plan kitchen and dining/ family room off which French doors lead out to the garden where there is pedestrian rear access.

The five bedroom property is asking €775,000 through agents Sherry FitzGerald.

There are five bedrooms on the first floor which are set up to accommodate the family’s seven children.

On a raised step to the rear are two adjoining single rooms situated adjacent to a separate toilet and family bathroom. This is the only bathroom on this level. With a family of this size, there is a much needed second wc downstairs. The bow-windowed master bedroom overlooks the church. There are two more bedrooms, both doubles, as well as a small study, too small to accommodate a bed, situated under the stairs that lead up to the converted attic.

The attic has good ceiling heights and a larger window, a dormer, faces south providing views of the Dublin mountains. The house has a D2 Ber rating. Parking is on street.

Several properties on Iona Road, Dublin 9’s consistently popular address, sold last year. According to the Property Price Register Number 52 sold for €685,000 in August; in September Number 57 sold for €525,000; in October Number 60 sold for €680,000.
