The Brambles, on Kilgobbin Road, is a small enclave of houses all built in different styles. Number 8 was built in 1996 and is located just a few minutes walk from the Glencairn Luas, the M50 interchange and the villages of Sandyford and Stepaside are also close by.

This 139sq m (1,469sq ft) detached bungalow has four bedrooms; the en-suite master is spacious with extensive built-in wardrobes and flooded with light thanks to a triple bay window overlooking the sunny south-facing garden.

The remaining three bedrooms share a fine family bathroom, which has both a bath and separate shower.

A well proportioned kitchen-cum-breakfast room has pine units which new owners may want to paint or replace to give the room a new lease of life. Off this is a good sized utility leading to the rear garden.

A bright livingroom lies to the front of the property and features a marble gas fireplace with double doors opening to the formal dining room. New owners could replace the large window in the dining room with french doors to allow garden access.

Sandstone patio
The rear garden is what will attract many buyers to this property as it extends to 30m by 16m. Mainly laid out with lawn, it has lovely flowerbeds and a plethora of mature shrubs bordering a substantial Indian sandstone patio. The front garden has further lawn with good off street parking.

Number 8 would suit a family in search of a home with a good-sized garden.

Despite being 18 years old, the house has had but one resident so there has been very little wear and tear, but new owners can, if budget allows, update the kitchen.
