More often than not, one-bed homes are designed with just one person in mind but the reality is that they often end up being lived in by couples or a separated or divorced parent who needs room for children to stay over but may not be able to afford a two-bed unit.

Number 32 Cherry Court, a small 1980s-built development of maisonette homes, just off Mount Tallant Avenue, and equidistant between Terenure and Harold’s Cross villages, will suit this demographic.

The 48sq m /516sq ft property is light filled thanks to its large original 1980s picture windows and has been decorated tastefully by Laura Farrell.

The hall is narrow but the owners installed sliding doors to allow for better ease of access and the attic has been floored and can be accessed via a pull-down ladder. 

A new owner might look to install Velux roof lights as the property has a lovely southern aspect. This would be the cherry on top in an already walk-in condition home. The living room is a good, square shape and has a gas fire. The room is big enough to accommodate a decent sized couch and or sofa bed. Access to the balcony is off it. This is south-east facing, gets both morning and evening sun, and is big enough for a table top to fit four comfortably.

The kitchen is roomy for a unit of this size. The current owners have installed units along one wall with a desk-like set-up along the other, but banquette seating here would provide plenty of room for a kitchen table.

There is sea grass carpeting on the hall, living room and bedroom floors dimming down any ambient noise. The textured Palazzo wallpaper on the bedroom walls also helps.  

The bathroom, with a window, features a large shower stall and smart Fired Earth tiling . The owners recently added a combi-boiler and pressure pump.

It is lovely but probably won’t suit down traders as this own-door maisonette is situated on the first floor, at the top of a set of stairs.

The property, which has a D1 Ber rating and gas heating is seeking €275,000 through agent DNG.
