This property, located at 1 Springfield Avenue in Templeogue, lies on a substantial corner site of 0.2 of an acre. Constructed by its architect owner in 1963, the property, though now outdated, has lots of potential to be upgraded or converted and extended to a more modern home.

The house extends to 198sq m (2,215sq ft), which includes the integrated garage, and an attic that currently accommodates two bedrooms and a large playroom.

The orientation of the site is very similar to Elba at 9 Saval Park Crescent in Dalkey, and new owners could take inspiration from what can be achieved with a good eye for design both in the gardens and the house itself.

Flow and function

Though partially open-plan (the living and dining area is one large space), there could be a greater use of space, flow and function throughout.


In addition, the mature gardens could do with a serious overhaul as they wrap around the property on three sides. The patio off the kitchen is small, and rooms would benefit from having direct access to the grounds in the form of concertina doors – to integrate with the interiors.

With a little imagination and flair, this five-bedroom property, for sale through Beirne and Wise with an asking price of €725,000, has endless potential.
