Ready to be revamped

FOXROCK: €925,000: This unassuming house seems to tick every box for families. The detached property is in a quiet cul de sac, has a southwest-facing back garden and a surprisingly spacious interior.

The redbrick house is on a small estate just off Westminster Road in Foxrock and, though it doesn’t look like much from the outside and the decor is a little tired, the layout is spacious and bright.

It was was bought off-plan by the current owner who amended the layout slightly, moving doors in the living room and dispensing with a dividing wall in the kitchen. Built in 1989, it is 301sq m (3,240sq ft) and is asking €925,000 through DNG.

Glass panels in the front door lead to a maple-floored hall. Double doors open through to the living room, which has a white marble fireplace. More double doors lead to the dining room where a French door opens into a large conservatory.

A breakfast bar in the kitchen separates dining and cooking areas. An L-shaped utility room off the kitchen leads to the garden. There is also a family room at the front.

Four of the bedrooms are on the first floor. The original master at the front has an en suite bathroom with an apricot suite. The current master bedroom overlooks the back garden and has a spacious shower room en suite.

There is another large bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe that has also been used as a study room, with a separate shower en suite. The fourth bedroom on this floor is a single and is used as an office.

The fifth bedroom, which is on the second floor, has a vaulted ceiling, a round window on one side, and a Velux window that overlooks the back garden tree tops. The garden has a lawn big enough for kids to kick a football around and lots of mature shrubbery and trees. High walls on either side add to the privacy.
