A large detached six-bed in walk-in condition in a quiet cul-de-sac in Killiney, Co Dublin, would make a great home for a large family. The 1970s house, number 22 Coundon Court, faces a green space and was remodelled and extended about 10 years ago, recently decorated and now staged for sale. Its owners lived there for 14 years with their five children and moved recently for work reasons.

The 453sq m (4,876sq ft) six-bed is for sale for €1.695 million through Savills.

Revamping the house included moving a central staircase to the side of the house and extending at the back and side. The property has three large reception rooms, an up-to-the-minute kitchen/breakfastroom, two large fully-tiled family bathrooms (one upstairs, one down, and three en-suite bedrooms) and a basement room with separate access from front and back; it also has recessed lighting, fitted wardrobes and loads of storage. A deck wraps around the house, with access from several rooms and there’s a cabin in the garden currently used as a gym.

The house has been staged by House & Garden Furnishings to a smart modern style. The front door opens into a wide hall, floored with oak and with walls painted pale grey, like many rooms in the house. Double doors open into the long, bright, livingroom, which runs from the front to the back of the house, with French doors opening on to the rear deck. A solid fuel stove sits in a fireplace with a marble surround.

There is a formal diningroom at the front off the other side of the hall and a fully-tiled downstairs bathroom. There are two bedrooms, one with en suite, off a hall which links the front to the back of the house. It opens into a large L-shaped kitchen/breakfastroom.

The kitchen has a very large island unit with a polished granite top and a Belling range set into the tiled chimney breast; off the kitchen is a good-sized utility room.

Glazed double doors open from the kitchen into a sittingroom at the back. It’s bright, with a deep skylight, a wall of windows and French doors opening onto the back deck; there’s another solid-fuel stove in the sandstone fireplace.

Upstairs, four under-eaves bedrooms, two en suite, and a family bathroom open off the landing: there’s a glimpse of the Dublin mountain from two of the rooms. All of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, and there’s a built-in study area in the hall leading to the main bedroom.

The basement room is fitted out as a games room, but there’s potential to revamp it, perhaps as a bedroom or a home office.

The L-shaped back garden is mainly in lawn. There is room to park several cars in the cobble-lock front garden behind electronically controlled gates. Coundon Court is a small estate off Killiney Avenue, a road which links Church Road to Killiney Hill Road.
