A two-bed bungalow on a quiet street in Dundrum was completely revamped five years ago and adapted for its owner, one-time championship golfer Elizabeth Purcell. Now the house has a ramp leading from the garage to the kitchen, an en suite with a walk-in shower off the main bedroom, a galley kitchen where cupboards are accessible and raised power points.
The adaptations have been done discreetly by architect Paul Brazil and the result is a smart, easy to manage house likely to appeal to downsizers or someone with mobility issues. It might also appeal to a young couple who want to live in this convenient neighbourhood, near the Balally Luas stop, Dundrum shopping centre and with easy access to the M50. There’s a good bit of room to expand at the back of the property subject to the usual planning requirements.
The house has a simple layout: steps lead up to the front door, opening into a small front porch and then into the hallway, off which are two bedrooms at the front of the house. (New owners might want to create level access to the front door: the late owner accessed the house via the garage.)
The house is bright, painted in neutral cream, with smart oak internal doors. Both the bedrooms have built-in cupboards with internal lights and the main bedroom has a small walk-in dressingroom. The hall leads past the family bathroom to a large open-plan livingroom/diningroom/sunroom, with glazed windows at the back and French windows opening into a patio garden.
The galley kitchen off the open-plan space has timber units and a separate decent-sized utility room off it opening into the garage. The 1960s house has been rewired, re-plumbed, has a gas-fired central heating system, a supplementary solar panel hot water system and double-glazed windows.
