Spacious Sandycove home is ready to go

Bright family property with landscaped gardens for €845,000

 

Dundela Park is located between Sandycove and Dalkey in a quiet family neighbourhood. The current owners, who are downsizing, bought the house in 1992 when it was “a bunch of poky rooms”.

In 2006, the couple completely renovated the house and added an extension to the side bringing the total space to 223sq m (2,400sq ft). The result is an impressive spacious family home in turnkey condition.

Open plan

Off the hallway, there is a large L-shaped open plan room which incorporates a conservatory, livingroom and dining-cum-kitchen.

The Shaker kitchen in red alder houses a large Rangemaster and features an island which is used for informal dining. A window seat looks out onto a perfectly manicured 13m x 17m rear garden, which can be accessed from two sets of French windows.

The livingroom with wide plank maple flooring and a raised log gas fire connects the kitchen to the conservatory which is bright thanks to Velux windows.

To the side of the kitchen is a large utility room which is adjacent to a self-contained home office. This could be used as a bedroom, bringing the total number of bedrooms to four.

Attic conversion

A formal drawingroom sits to the front of the house and looks out onto a giant pink camellia in the cobble-locked front driveway.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, the master of which has a small dressing room and an en suite. A second double bedroom features a large en suite installed in an attic conversion.

Number 44 feels new – there is little evidence that the renovations were carried out almost a decade ago. The neutral palette of pale woods and soft creams give a calm air though out.

Number 76, a 116sq m (1,249sq ft) property, sold in August 2014 for €680,000. At almost double the size and in turnkey condition, number 44 seems like good value and is for sale with an asking price of €845,000 through estate agent Sherry FitzGerald.
