Lower Mounttown Road in south Dublin appears on the local council’s planning lists as being mostly in Dun Laoghaire, even Monkstown, though sometimes Glenageary is included in the address as in number 47 Lower Mounttown Road which is now for sale through Lisney asking €750,000.

Indeed the last time the house, called Constantia, was on the market – in 2016 asking €645,000 it was listed as Dun Laoghaire.

The owners have lived in the mid-terrace house for about 10 years doing considerable work in their time there, most notably adding a two-storey extension to the rear to make space for a larger kitchen and a bedroom en suite.

That brings to four the number of bedrooms – three doubles and one single – which will enhance the property’s appeal to families looking to trade up to the popular, well-serviced area. The work has brought the house to 145.25 sq m (1,563 sq ft).


The bay windows make their rooms inside more spacious, with the front room downstairs currently laid out as a dining room. These reception rooms have been smartly upgraded, with new chimneypieces, one with a solid cherrywood floor , the other a walnut floor. The original pocket doors slide back to open into the living room and on out the garden.

The extended kitchen is extensively fitted with glossy units. Built-in utility presses have been incorporated with hanging space over, and are plumbed for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The family bathroom upstairs is fully tiled. With side lights and a window over the front door the hall is bright.

For buyers, they will be getting a property in walk-in condition, a plus in these time when builders are difficult – and expensive – to come by. The 24m-long garden is slightly irregularly shaped, tapering towards the end and currently under artificial grass.

A green-fingered new owner could enhance it with some flower beds and shrubs – although as it’s likely going to be a family who buys, a trampoline might be more in order. The BER is C2.

To the front there is off-street parking behind an electric gate for two cars.
