The story of Nine Mile Stone is a familiar one. For 30 years it has been a family home – but now that family’s four children have grown up and flown the coop, and those left behind are seeking to downsize, opening this four-bed house up to a new future.

Bought in 1984 for the sum of £80,000, Nine Mile Stone – on sale through REA Grimes and asking €565,000 – is a two-storey house with private gardens, a detached garage and 230sq m (2,500sq ft) of space.

On the ground floor, the bright entrance hallway has solid wood flooring and decorative coving, with hardwood glass doors that lead into the living room, kitchen and sittingroom.

The livingroom is a bright, family room to the front of the house, with a brick-faced open fire and bay windows, while the more formal sittingroom runs the length of the house, with steps leading into the dining area.

Here, the bell-shaped window – an addition made by the current owners, who bought the house as a new home – is the feature of the room, ensuring it gets the full day’s sunlight.

The kitchen, too, is designed to take full advantage of daylight, with a large, bright, Velux window above the sink, which overlooks windows on to the rear patio area.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is en suite and has a walk-in wardrobe and double doors out on to a small balcony. A further three bedrooms upstairs are double in size, all with built-in wardrobes and one with a wash-hand basin.

With landscaped gardens, four good-sized bedrooms and large, cosy living areas, Nine Mile Stone would be well suited to a family – and with a bus stop outside the front gate that services Dublin airport and city, and a 15-minute walk to Ashbourne village, it offers both privacy and convenience.
