Number 24 Butterfield Avenue, situated at the Ballyboden end of the road, is a fine family home that has been extended over the 28 years the current owners have been in situ.

It opens into a smart, square hall, typical of the period and floored with a polished cream tile. There is a guest toilet to the left and the original interconnecting reception rooms are to the right. These rooms have pocket interconnecting doors that slide back into the wall, polished wood floors and lots of light thanks to the big bay window to the front and large glazed doors leading out to a timber deck to the rear.

The garden is wide and private. Another set of double doors on the deck links to the kitchen. This extended area is light-filled thanks to its fully glazed gable wall and rooflights.

Polished granite

The cooking area is filled with painted units topped with polished granite worktops and includes an island-cum-breakfast bar. There is also a dining area but the nicest spot in the space is reserved for the family room.

To the front, past a good-size utility, is a study where the garage would originally have stood. The owners knocked this down and rebuilt it.

Upstairs there are five bedrooms around a C-shaped landing – three doubles and two singles. The bay-windowed master to the front has a shower ensuite.

The attic has been converted and is accessed via a narrow set of stairs. It’s a bright room with mountain views and a shower room and closet off it.

The property, which covers 215sq m (2,314sq ft), has a D2 Ber rating, and is on sale for €1.25 million through agent DNG.

Number 71, a four-bed property of 159sq m (1,722sq ft) with an E2 Ber rating, came to market last year asking €625,000 and sold for €640,000 in December.
