Little had been done to a semi-detached house near UCD – owned by one family since it was built in the 1930s – when it sold for €717,000 in 2016. Four years on, it has been comprehensively refurbished and extended to the rear and side.

The vendors, a couple with a young family, had expected to live there for years, but are now moving abroad for work reasons. Now the 214sq m (2,303sq ft) five-bed is for sale for €1.195 million through selling agent DNG.

A virtual tour of number 51 shows that it’s a bright, comfortable modern house decorated in neutral shades with oak wood floors downstairs, underfloor heating, smart modern bathrooms and a large open-plan kitchen/family/diningroom to the rear of the house. The front door opens into an L-shaped hall, off which is a downstairs bedroom and a playroom/study as well as a shower room.

The livingroom at the front of the house is a long room with a cream granite fireplace and like the bedroom above it, a bay window; it opens through a wide arch into the L-shaped dining/family/kitchen at the rear. It’s a bright space with a high ceiling and three large roof windows.

The Noyeks Newmans kitchen has quartz worktops, a timber-topped island unit, polished oak floor with underfloor heating and double doors opening into the rear garden. An alcove halfway up the stairs leading to the four bedrooms and family bathroom is a favourite feature of the current owners – they have placed a mirror in it, but it could also be used to display paintings, they suggest. 

There are three double bedrooms and a single upstairs: the main bedroom at the front has a smart en suite shower room and fitted wardrobes.

The modest-sized rear garden has a deck, lawn and a wood-chip play area. There’s a good-sized lawn at the front and a gravelled drive with room to park several cars.

Glenomena Park is a quiet road with lots of families, says the owner, and is in easy walking distance of UCD, the N11, and about 15 or 20 minutes’ walk to Booterstown Dart.
