133sq m (1,430 sq ft)


Gar­dens were gar­dens when Mount Desert View was build on the Model Farm Road in the 1930s — not the small postage stamp-sized ver­sions that we have now. You could roam around in them, plant them, spend time mow­ing the lawn and moan about the time it took.

The three-bed de­tached dormer bun­ga­low was in the coun­try when it was built, but now it’s moved to the sub­urbs where its lo­ca­tion, close to ameni­ties, and its site of over a third of an acre, are set to prove very at­trac­tive to buy­ers who would like a sub­stan­tial fam­ily home in this part of the city.

Seek­ing of­fers of €595,000, sell­ing agents Frank V Mur­phy say the 1,430 sq ft prop­erty has great po­ten­tial. It has been mod­ernised with dou­ble glaz­ing, gas heat­ing and tim­ber floor­ing but it is in need of up­dat­ing and ren­o­va­tion. The site size will give the buyer plenty of scope to ex­tend.

The bun­ga­low has quite a few orig­i­nal fea­tures in­clud­ing tim­ber ceil­ing pan­els and un­usual brass fire­place in the sit­ting room. There’s also a din­ing room, a liv­ing room, a kitchen with cream units fit­ted in re­cent years and a ground-floor bath­room. Up­stairs there’s a WC and three bed­rooms.

The prop­erty has an at­tached garage and lawned gar­dens at both back and front as well as a higher level gar­den at the rear which is over­grown.

Ver­dict: Within easy reach of schools, col­leges and shops; fam­i­lies will want to live there.
