Alone it stands in Clontarf for €1.05m

Five-bedroom family home with large garden, private off-street parking and a spacious floored attic

 

On the initial approach into Baymount Park, a small cul-de-sac off Mount Prospect Avenue, it seems like any other mid-20th-century housing development.

The houses are semi-detached, with protruding front porches and small front gardens – until, that is, you reach the end of the cul-de-sac, where two detached houses stand more or less apart from the rest.

One of these is number 34, a five-bedroom house that has been in the same family since it was built in 1950 and is now for sale through Gunne, with an asking price of €1.05 million.

At 190sq m (2,045sq ft), number 34 is a spacious family home with a large back garden (about 25 sq m (270sq ft)), a separate garage and an enormous, floored attic.

The attic has great potential for conversion into a bedroom with space for an office and en suite too.

Inside the front door, a small entrance hall opens directly onto the diningroom, with a large bay window overlooking the rear garden.

To the left of the house, a decent sized sittingroom looks both front and rear and has a feature brick fireplace. It opens onto an L-shaped conservatory to the back.

To the right, past the guest toilet, a small kitchen is timber-floored, with wall and counter-top presses and part-tiled walls. Behind it is a family room, with a fireplace and French door to the back garden.

A utility room takes up the space of a side passage and contains the central heating, plumbing for the washing machine and a second toilet.

Given its vintage, the walk-in condition of number 34 is surprising – though any prospective buyers would probably consider renovating and expanding the kitchen.

Upstairs is a large landing with access to each of the five bedrooms and a big bathroom with bath, electric shower and bidet. There is ladder access to the attic from the landing.

Two bedrooms to the front of the house are small – although not quite box rooms either – while the three to the rear are more spacious.

It’s no surprise to find that none of the bedrooms are en suite, but there is plenty of scope there for prospective buyers to introduce them.
