Light and space by the station for €1.295m
Coney Glen is a five-bedroom period family home near the Dart station in Glenageary
What makes properties on Station Road attractive to buyers, besides its proximity to the Dart station, is the natural light that floods in from the south-facing gardens.
More than 20 years ago, before the current owner purchased the property, there was an extension built to the side of the house, which added two bedrooms upstairs and a familyroom and utility downstairs, bringing the total footprint to 193 sq m (2,077 sq ft).
Despite almost a century between the builds, the extension fits seamlessly into the existing house. From the exterior, a half crescent window sits over three symmetrical box windows and touches of redbrick echo the original build.
The property has four reception rooms – interlinked dining and drawingrooms which lead into a lovely bright conservatory and a familyroom in the extension.
The conservatory and familyroom both have French doors which open out on to a cobble locked patio in the 115ft long rear garden, which due to its size offers scope for a further extension if required.
The kitchen, though not spacious, has been given a recent facelift and shows how a lick of paint can instantly update the look of the older units.
An informal dining area sits off the kitchen overlooking the garden and, like all the rooms to the rear of the property, it is bathed in light.
The size of the kitchen is compensated by a roomy utility, which is larger than the kitchen itself, and houses the family fridge and all the accoutrements that would otherwise clutter the neat cooking area.
Upstairs, off a generous sized landing, are the five family bedrooms, the master of which is en suite. Recent additions of built-in wardrobes in the master bedroom are tastefully in keeping with the period of the property.
Down the road, number 4, a 140sq m (1,507sq ft) house, in need of some updating is for sale through agent Tom O’ Higgins with an asking price of €840,000.
Number 6, in turnkey condition and considerably larger, is asking €1.295 million through agent Sherry FitzGerald.
