Heads up on a homely six-bed with acres of space


Howth €1.25 million: NUMBER 1 Thormanby Woods is fairly typical of many of the houses dotted around Howth Head: large, detached, dormer-style and on substantial gardens.

The six-bed detached house was built in 1984 on a cul-de-sac as part of an estate near Howth summit.

Finnegan Menton is asking €1.25 million for the house which is a very roomy 312 sq m (3,362 sq ft) and is on 1.25 acres of partially landscaped grounds.

The house is set well back from the road. Inside, the look is homey but fairly low on frills.

Four of the bedrooms, including the main bedroom suite, are on the ground floor. The suite has a dressing room and an en suite bathroom.

Also on this level are a bright livingroom, diningroom, conservatory, playroom and the kitchen, which has a utility room.

The house has three bathrooms and a guest toilet.

There is also a double garage with a storage area that has direct access to the house.

Outbuildings include a walled area and an outhouse that could be converted to a workshop or granny flat.

According to the agent, outline planning permission for a second house on the grounds was granted in 2002, but this has since lapsed.
