Remodelled with a splash of colour in Dún Laoghaire for €685,000

Four-bedroom house fully refurbished and extended


It’s been four years since Sherna Malone and Brendan McCormack bought No 21 Clonkeen Grove in Dún Laoghaire, for “around €415,000”. It’s a testament both to the market and extensive remodelling work that it is now asking €685,000, through Sherry FitzGerald.

As remodelling jobs go, it’s holistic, with minimalist décor throughout. There’s pale laminate wood flooring in order to maximise brightness in the 145sq m (1,561 sq ft) property.

Through the hall, the kitchen-cum-living area is the mainstay of the house. Double doors open to the rear garden – a mix of shrubbery, decking and rubber flooring – and Velux skylight windows amplify the light. An island unit contains the integrated dishwasher and storage. There is a small guest WC off the kitchen.

The front living-cum-dining room is another bright space, with one wall papered in bold lime green, reflected in the chimney breast opposite.

A smaller living room to the front of the house is in use as a children’s playroom, but could also serve as a home office.

Upstairs, three bedrooms are doubles, while the fourth suffered slightly to make room for the master en suite – at a stretch, it could house a small double bed but would be better suited as a single.
