Olivemount is a small cul-de-sac off Dundrum Road between Windy Arbour and Clonskeagh, and less than 100m from the Bird Avenue intersection.

The mid-terrace house is very well presented with much of its potential already optimised, making it a “walk-in” proposition.

It opens into a decent-sized hall with the original sittingroom to the front, and the same pale oak timber flooring carries through from the hall to the front room. Facing north, this is an ideal after-dark room and has a corner open fireplace.

The house was refurbished in 2008 when the owner extended into the south-facing back garden to build a large open plan kitchen-dining-livingroom where sunlight streams through the lantern ceiling overhead. White kitchen units run the length of the room with polished black granite worktops creating a sleek contrast. In the new part, ceiling heights are more than 11ft (3.35m) while in the original part they are a more modest 8ft (2.44m).

The sitting space is big enough to take a deep sofa and a pair of armchairs around the original fireplace where there is scope to install a multifuel stove. There are limestone floor tiles underfoot with bi-fold doors opening the space completely to the south-facing garden. Raised beds painted in the same RAL colour as the glazing make the garden feel simple and modern.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two decent-sized doubles with sliding wardrobes. The third room is a small single and is currently used as a home office. Judicious use of mirrors to reflect light into all corners makes this house feel bright and sunny throughout.

The house has off-street parking for one car and it is a short walk to the Windy Arbour Green Line Luas stop.

The 1940s pebbledash-fronted house, which measures about 91sq m/979sq feet, is asking €495,000 through agent SherryFitzGerald.
