Attic conversion top draw in this home fit for a family in Foxrock for €895,000

Extended and remodelled detached four-bedroom home with converted attic

 

Few villages in the country can boast a racecourse and a golf range on their doorstep; then again Foxrock is not your usual village.

The Dublin 18 address has become synonymous with exclusivity and wealth, and high house prices are reflected in the demand for family homes in the leafy hamlet.

It is just a little ironic that the original developers of Foxrock, the Bentley and Fox brothers, went bankrupt in the 1860s, never to see their vision of an exclusive suburb in south Co Dublin come to fruition, as sales and leases on the sites were so slow to take off.

Maple flooring

23 Brighton Avenue

An extension to the rear was added as well as an attic conversion, which brings the total floor area to 193sq m (2,085sq ft).

On the ground floor, two bright interlinked reception rooms run the width of the house opening out onto a raised deck in the rear garden.

The narrow-plank maple flooring throughout the house is echoed in the maple units in the large kitchen, and new owners in search of a family home will enjoy the space in the utility, which is the same size as many kitchens in three and four-bedroom houses.

The highlight of this house is the attic conversion.

While so many conversions are pokey spaces with little head height, this is a full-blown livingroom on the second floor with views of the Dublin Mountains.

Number 23, with its prestigious address, would make a fine family home and is for sale through estate agent Daphne L Kaye with an asking price of €895,000
