Little left to be done to roomy Foxrock five-bed for €875,000

Number 18 South Park is an attractive, spacious house with all the mod cons one could ask for – and a price tag to match


There is something quite curious about the facade of number 18 South Park. It seems as if two houses have been combined – one cut in half with its front end then tacked on to the front of the other.

It is an illusion that lasts only until the threshold has been breached. Inside, the extension at the back is seemless.

Number 18, on sale through Savills, is a comfortable yet super-spacious study in family living. On arrival at the large entrance hall there are three choices. You can go right, to what is currently the play room, a large living room with gas fire and timber flooring. To the left is a smaller “familyroom”.

Straight ahead is access to the enormous kitchen-cum-dining-cum-livingroom, a bright, open-plan tiled living area with double doors to the back garden.

The kitchen has granite worktops and Neff oven and hob, while the living area is lit by two Velux windows and large windows to the rear. There is a central island and underfloor heating.

Upstairs, two bedrooms are en suite, one of which includes fitted wardrobes. Of the other three, two are small singles, perhaps best suited for children or with the potential for use as offices or playrooms. A third double is a fine size.

The main bathroom has a bath and electric Triton shower, with lots of in-built storage.

There has been no expense spared in updating and modernising number 18. Between solar panels, underfloor heating and the bright and modern living area, it is a house that requires no further work – except, that is, the work it will take to earn the €875,000 it is asking.

For all of its 2,370 sq ft of space, smart, attractive interiors, front parking and, some would say, ideal situation, a comparison of recent sales would indicate these extras come at a premium; number 82 sold late last year for €532,000, with number 76 selling at the same time for €475,000.

The owners of number 18 South Park have invested time and thought in this property – the rest is in the hands of the market.
