Sit­ting pretty on Sandy­cove Road

The Irish Times - Thursday - Property - - The Market - 985,000

A Vic­to­rian house nearly op­po­site Buck­ley’s Auc­tion Gal­leries in Sandy­cove, Co Dublin, re­port­edly the coun­try’s most ex­pen­sive sub­urb, is for sale for ¤985,000. The sec­ond-to-last house on a terrace near the cor­ner of Sandy­cove Av­enue East, it was built in the early 1900s, and has some pe­riod fea­tures like sash wi n d o ws and cast-iron fire­places with inset tiles.

The house has been mod­ernised over the years. There’s a large kitchen/break­fas­troom run­ning from the front to the back of the house at base­ment level, but new own­ers will likely want to re­dec­o­rate the prop­ert y. Num­ber 41 Sandy­cove Road, a 181sq m (1,948sq ft) four-bed, is for sale through Sherry FitzGer­ald. Its neigh­bour, num­ber 42, which is some­what smaller, is for sale through DNG for ¤975,000.

Three steps lead from the small paved front gar­den up to the fan­light topped front door into a long hall. The draw­ingroom/din­ingroom on the left, run­ning from the front to nearly the back of the house, has two large black cast-iron fire­places with inset tiles and sash win­dows with shut­ters.

Up­stairs, there is a bed­room on the re­turn next to the fam­ily bath­room, and two dou­bles on the top floor. The main bed­room is the width of the house, a large room with a cast-iron fire­place and two tall win­dows look­ing over the main Sandy­cove Road. There’s a fourth bed­room, with a bay win­dow over­look­ing the back gar­den, on a lower re­turn lead­ing down to the base­ment.

The kitchen at base­ment level is bright: it has an is­land unit; oak-topped coun­ter­tops; hand-made units and pa­tio doors lead­ing into the long nar­row paved back gar­den; an un­der­stairs door gives ac­cess to the front gar­den. Off the kitchen, there’s a util­ity room and down­stairs shower room.

A nar­row path off the back gar­den gives ac­cess to a lane, off Sandy­cove Av­enue East, at the rear.

There is no park­ing with the house, but there’s res­i­dents’ per­mit park­ing. The house is a short walk to the Forty Foot.
