When the couple who own 49 Whitebeam Road moved in three years ago, they set about adapting the house to suit their young family. Their main focus was the long rear garden, which was overgrown when they arrived. They called in garden company Contour Greens, who have created a thoroughly modern garden with an artificial lawn that includes a putting green, a large covered side patio with a built-in barbecue, sink and wine fridge and at the end of the garden, up a few steps, a good-size studio currently used as a playroom.

The garden is ideal for the family’s two small sons says the owner: they can play football all day on the fake grass and even if it’s raining, all they get is wet, not muddy.

There is still room to extend to the rear, and there is full-planning permission for an extension that would accommodate four bedrooms and a livingroom/kitchen downstairs, increasing the size of the 185sq m (1,991sq ft) property by 25 per cent.


DNG is seeking €1.15million for 49 Whitebeam Road, a four-bedroom Crampton-built house. It’s a big price, but the home is in a popular neighbourhood: the 1940s/1950s houses off Clonskeagh Road are a short walk through a back entrance into UCD, and within easy access of the city centre. In August 2013, number 52 sold for €900,000.

Accommodation in the house includes a small family room on the left of the front hall and a long livingroom on the right with double glazed doors opening into a small conservatory at the back of the house. This opens into a rather dated kitchen, with a utility room off it, and adjoining dining room. A good-sized room off the dining room, to the front of the house, is currently used as a study. There’s also a downstairs shower room at the end of the front hall.

Upstairs are four bedrooms – the main en suite – and the family bathroom.

There’s space to park several cars in the cobblelocked front garden, bordered by a small artificial lawn. The house is opposite a large green where a neighbourhood barbecue is held every year.
