Redesigned and extended four-bedroom house with home office in the garden
Address: 6 Glengara Park, Glenageary, Co. Dublin
Price: 595,000 €
Situated just off Eden Road, Glengara Park is a small development of about 50 houses built in the 1980s around a central green.
The owners have remodelled the property, starting with the entrance hall which now has crema marfil tiles that draw the eye through to the kitchen, past the sittingroom.
They extended the ground floor, opening up the Shaker kitchen with its black polished granite worktops and adding a bright family room with a pitched roof, exposed beams and roof lights. The room has brick wall details and a brick fireplace with a Yotul gas stove inset.
French doors lead out to a low- maintenance back garden that is north-facing. It is paved, has a raised deck area and a Sheomra home office that is 4.8m by 5.4m (16ft by 18ft) in size.
On the first floor the owners opened up the original four bedrooms to make two very generous double bedrooms.
The master bedroom has plenty of wardrobe space. The second double has a shower en suite bathroom and views of Killiney Hill.
These rooms could be converted back into four bedrooms but with two attic rooms currently in use as two further bedrooms, on the second floor, there probably isn’t any need. From one of these you have sea views.
The house now measures 118sq metres (1,280sq ft) in size with the attic rooms adding a further 33sq m (362sq ft).
According to the Residential Property Price Register number 33 Glengara Park, a four-bedroom semi, sold for €542,500 in October 2013.
