Number 3 Windsor Place is one of eight properties in a small gated development that was built on Lanesville, a quiet road situated between Monkstown Farm and Abbey Road, at the Deansgrange end of Monkstown Avenue, in 2005.
One of just two two-bedroom units in the complex, it measures 68sq m (750sq ft), and is seeking €375,000 through agent DNG.
The house opens into a small hall with a glass door leading through to the eat-in kitchen, a change of layout that the owners who purchased it when new executed to give them more living space. They removed an internal corridor and downstairs toilet to free up floor space for a table for four. The kitchen’s white gloss units, recently refreshed, extend the length of the room and have polished granite countertops.
Full-height, custom-made double-glass sliding doors lead through to the sittingroom. Timber flooring throughout has been there since the property was built and has stood the test of time well. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom, newly tiled and lit from above by a rooflight, all off a decent-sized landing with access to a partially-floored attic via a Stira – good for out-of-sight storage of bulky items.
There could be scope to build a decent-sized desk on the landing to create a small home office space.
The property comes with one designated car-parking space. Annual management fees are about €800 for the grounds, which include a small south-facing walled private garden, recently refreshed by Donnybrook Landscapes and ideal for parents of small kids – here they can kick a ball around or play in a secure environment.
When new, the property came to market seeking €430,000 in 2005.
