Leopardstown four-bed with one careful owner . . . since 1969

Spacious family home close to Leopardstown Tennis Club for sale at €695,000

 

Leopardstown Grove is a well-established estate built in the 1960s, just off Brewery Road.

Number 30 was constructed in 1965 and has had one careful owner since 1969. The four-bedroom semi has evolved over that time, with the owner reconfiguring the reception rooms to create a gas-fire-warmed sitting room to the front.

Originally, the sitting and dining rooms would have interconnected. Instead, to make the most of the sunny southerly aspect to the rear, the owner integrated the dining room and kitchen into a comfortable and bright kitchen, dining, family room. He installed vanilla gloss units and granite worktops in the kitchen about 10 years ago. A second gas-fuelled fire warms the family area.

To access the garden, you have to slip out of the kitchen into the utility area, once the side passage, where the back door opens out to a patio area and a garden, with mature planting for privacy and a small lawn.

There is a good size utility, separate shower room and a door leading out to the front so you can wheel bins and other waste out without having to bring them through the house.

There is also a small study to the front of the ground floor, housed in what was once the garage. It also has a gas fire.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three good size doubles, with an option to go up into the attic if more room is needed. Presently, the property measures 157sq m (1,689sq ft). The master bedroom overlooks the front of the house.

The entrance to Leopardstown Tennis Club is across the road. A family membership at the eight-court facility costs €530 per year.

And if you don’t fancy cooking, you can take a short walk to the Leopardstown Inn on Brewery Road, where the gastropub does a roaring after-work trade and is renowned for its carvery lunches.

The establishment was bought last year by O’Malley/Cooney group for a sum in the region of €4.5million. The same group purchased Solas on Wexford Street for €2.4 million.

Number 30 Leopardstown Grove has off-street parking for up to three cars and is asking €695,000 through agents Owen Reilly.
