Space out in a Foxrock four-bed with gardens
Extended house in a space that was originally allocated for two houses
Number 3 Kilteragh Road, in Foxrock, Co Dublin, is the first on the road – number 1 was never built, meaning that this family home has all of the space that was originally allocated for two houses. At 285sq m (3,070 sq ft), it is an enormous space, which was once filled with a family of seven. The family has outgrown the house and its current owners have decided to put it on the market through Sherry FitzGerald, with an asking price of €1.3m.
Not only does the house have four bedrooms but downstairs, several extensions, to the rear and to the side, have made even more of this family home. To the left of a large entrance hall, a study or playroom looks out on to the sweeping front driveway, with its manicured lawns and mature shrubbery.
There are several spacious living areas, one of which is an open-plan sitting and diningroom. There is a spacious reception room, along the side of the house, again with large windows both front and rear, and a drawingroom which, along with the reception room, has an open fireplace.
The light-filled kitchen-cum-breakfastroom is large, too; there are solid wooden counters, extending to a breakfast bar with space for four, and a dining table.
The garden has a large lawn , tiled decking and mature shrubbery and is completely private and has a southerly aspect.
The four upstairs bedrooms each have room for a double bed, and there are several with built-in wardrobes. The large family bathroom is fully tiled, with a corner shower and bath. There is a guest toilet downstairs.
With plenty of room outside, there is potential to further extend number 3, although the ample space within suggests this would be unnecessary for most modern families.
