At the end of Clonkeen Road in Deansgrange, Co Dublin, just before you turn onto the N11, lies Monaloe Crescent, a quiet cul-de-sac of bungalows.

Type the Eircode of number 2 Monaloe Crescent into Google, and it will tell you the house is in Blackrock, though really it’s closer to Cabinteely and Cornelscourt – a case of postcode inflation, perhaps.

Still, this lovely, fully refurbished semi-detached bungalow is nicely tucked away at the very end of the crescent, close to Dunnes Stores and numerous eateries, and within easy access of the M50 and just a short stroll from the beautiful surrounds of Cabinteely Park. It exudes tranquillity and comfort and a cosy cottage feel.

The property also boasts a massive adjacent site with full planning permission for a large detached family home. There are even plans drawn up by Jones & Kelly Architects for a 284sq m bungalow, which can be viewed on request, so if you buy the site, all you need to do is press the button to start the building work.

The bungalow itself is 120sq m, and has been tastefully renovated to maximise the space and light, and the open-plan kitchen and living areas have tiled floors, stone worktops and rooflights.

There are three bedrooms – the main one with en suite and ample wardrobe space, a small child’s bedroom, and a bedroom with original fireplace that can easily be switched back to a front lounge. The Ber is D2.

You’d wonder where the owners could find room to build a second house twice the size of the existing one – that is, until you step out of the rear extension onto the patio and see the size of the back garden – more like a football field, extending out to 0.4 of an acre..

It’s surrounded by mature trees, giving full privacy. The new house will be sufficiently far from the existing house to retain that privacy, and there’s more than enough garden space for both houses.

The current owners had designed the new house for their growing family to move into, and work was about to begin on the build when Covid hit, halting construction work. With two of their children now in their teens, they’ve decided to sell the bungalow and site with planning permission.

Number 2 Monaloe Crescent is being sold in three lots: Lot 1, the existing home with large south-facing rear garden, side pedestrian access and two car spaces for €795,000; Lot 2, the site with full planning permission for a large, detached bungalow for €395,000; or the entire package for €1.19 million.
