Take a flutter in Foxrock for €795,000

Double-fronted detached four-bed house with a southwest-facing garden backing on to Leopardstown racecourse


This double-fronted, four-bedroom family home that overlooks an open green is just off Brighton Road, at the Carrickmines end. It is in a small development of detached redbrick houses built by McInerney in 1993.

Number nine backs onto Leopardstown racecourse and on meet days you’re so close to the action that you can hear the race tannoy.

On the box bay window side of the house there is a warm sitting room with an open fire and double doors that lead to the open-plan kitchen/dining- room.

This fine-sized space runs across the width of the house. An open breakfast bar divides the kitchen from the dining area.

Two sets of glass doors open into a large rectangular conservatory that was added when the house was built. It is a room with brick detailing and a sunny aspect, overlooking the small, south-facing garden. High hedging shields the racecourse from view. There is also a good size study, or den, to the front.

The house measures 148sq m (1,600sq ft) and is for sale at €795,000 through agents Sherry FitzGerald.

Upstairs there are four big bedrooms. The main one, to the front, has a bar window that frames the public green space where a set of football goals have been set up so the neighbouring kids can play. The room has built-in wardrobes and a shower en suite bathroom.

Two of the bedrooms, one with built-in mirrored wardrobes, look onto the back garden.
