Two could become one in Blackrock for €795,000
Three-bed period home with original features, currently in two apartments
Two streets over from Mount Merrion Avenue, Glenart Avenue is a quiet and salubrious residential street, with all the local amenities and none of the through-traffic noise.
From the outside, number 39, for sale through Beirne and Wise for €795,000, is a charming period semi-detached, single-storey over basement home, with a sunny 15m (50ft) south-facing back garden.
Inside, it needs a little work to turn it back into a family home, however, as it is currently in two separate flats.
The garden-level apartment has its own entrance, under the granite steps that sweep up to the hall door. This flat has two bedrooms, a living room, small kitchen and bathroom.
The upper flat has a large reception room, bedroom, hall, kitchen, utility room and bathroom. Internal stairs will need to be replaced to connect the two floors.
Original features, such as bay windows and cornicing are still intact, however.
It will be worth spending the effort and resources, as this is a charming house, with 191sq m (2,055sq ft) of living space in a very nice area.
In 2011, 27 Glenart Avenue, a four-bed semi-detached house went for €1.025 million; while the 1950s-built number 12, with five bedrooms, sold for €625,000 in the same year.
