A semi-detached Edwardian redbrick in a great location near Donnybrook and Ranelagh villages has been extended and refurbished in recent years and is in walk-in condition. No 40 Belmont Avenue, Donnybrook, Dublin 4, a 251sq m (2,701sq ft) four-bed that backs on to St Mary’s Lawn Tennis Club, is for sale for €1.895 million through DNG. It is on the corner of Belmont Road and Belmont Villas.

The house, which was extended in 1988 and rented for a number of years, was refurbished in 2019, when it was rewired and replumbed, original sash windows were double-glazed and a new kitchen installed. It also has a central vacuum system. 

It’s a bright house, painted in neutral shades of cream and white, with some interesting quirks, like the utility room built in the space that was a side passage, a space that also provides room for a pantry off the kitchen.

The drawing room on the right of the front hall has a bay window, large white marble fireplace, and a pale timber-effect laminate floor; double doors open into the dining room overlooking the tennis club.

The kitchen at the end of the hall is a long room opening into the wider breakfast room/family room at the back of the house. The kitchen has cream units, a tiled floor and marble countertops; floor-to-ceiling double-glazed sliding doors open from the family room into the back garden. A smart understairs toilet is tiled in marble.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, a family bathroom and an attic room. A double bedroom on the first return opens into a room described as a study/den looking over the tennis club. The smart family bathroom is fully tiled. Two double bedrooms on the first floor have fitted wardrobes and smart en suite shower rooms; another double on the second floor return has a walk-in wardrobe as well as an en suite. Steep stairs lead from the top-floor landing to the carpeted attic. The house is BER-exempt.

The back garden has a large patio, a lawn and space for parking accessed from a lane at the rear through a wide timber gate. There is also a door in the garden’s side wall that opens into a parking bay for two cars on Belmont Villas. (One space is for No 40, the other for its neighbour, No 42.) There’s a neat lawn in the railed front garden.
