Three-bed at Dún Laoghaire junction

1920s family home has been modernised and comes on the market for €575,000


An end-of-terrace 1920s house at a busy junction in Dún Laoghaire has some of the period style of its era but has been modernised in recent years.

Number 1 Kill Avenue, a 116sq m (1,254 sq ft) three-bedroom house, is for sale by private treaty through Lisney for €575,000.

The house is just around the corner from Oliver Plunkett Road at the junction connecting it to Upper Glenageary Road, Mounttown Road and Kill Avenue. It is a short walk to the new Park Pointe shopping centre.

A hall floored with black and white tiles opens into an interconnecting livingroom/ diningroom. The livingroom has a bay window, a fireplace with attractive tiles inset, and stripped wooden floors. It opens into the diningroom, which in turn opens through French doors into a small conservatory that opens on one side into the kitchen and on the other on to the back garden through sliding glazed doors. The kitchen is a long room decorated in shades of duck egg blue. Appliances are included in the sale.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms: the main bedroom at the front of the house is a large bright double with a bay window and built-in wardrobes and next to it is a single child’s bedroom. A bedroom at the back comes with built-in wardrobes too and a stone fireplace. There’s a smart tiled family bathroom on this floor.

A steep flight of stairs leads up to 20sq m (217sq ft) of extra attic space which has been converted to a bright double bedroom with Velux windows.

Newly-fitted double-glazed PVC windows with attractive white shutters are effective at keeping the noise at bay from the busy junction outside.

There is a deck and a small lawn in the modest back garden and space for two cars in the gravelled front garden, protected by electronic gates. There’s also a garage at the side with potential for conversion.
