Greystones gem with added space
Renovated and extended four-bedroom family home for €585,000
The Oakland development on Church Lane in Greystones was originally built in the 1970s, with additional phases added over the years. Since purchasing the property in 2002, the current owners have completely renovated it, adding an extension to the rear in 2007.
The extension added a further 40sq m to the house which now has a spacious 172sq m (!,851 sq ft) over two floors.
Flooded with light
What was originally a small kitchen is now the family utility, as a new open-plan kitchen, dining and living area was added to the rear. Set under a vaulted ceiling, the new rooms are flooded with light thanks to overhead Velux windows and French doors to the garden.
The Mobalpa kitchen offers lots of storage, including an appliance garage, integrated Neff appliances, and walnut countertops.
The property now has three large reception areas with recessed lighting and semi-solid oak flooring.
An office sits to the front of the property in the location of what was the original garage. This too was given a recent revamp.
The house has four bedrooms, all of which have oak flooring and the master en-suite was completely renovated in September 2015.
The garden, which faces west, is very private and laid out with a circular lawn and two Indian sandstone patios. To the front is off-street parking for three cars.
Number 7 Oaklands is in turn-key condition and will appeal to a family in search of a roomy home. The extra storage in the utility allows the open-plan kitchen/dining area to be completely streamlined. With four bedrooms, three bathrooms, three reception rooms and an office, the property is significantly larger than its neighbours.
It’s on the market through estate agent McGovern Estates, with an asking price of €585,000.
