Smart styling on a snug cor­ner

A re­vamped 1900s three-bed in a great lo­ca­tion that has had sev­eral up­grades

The Irish Times - Thursday - Property - - Property The Market -

(1,779sq ft) three-bed is for sale through Sherry FitzGer­ald seek­ing ¤1.35 mil­lion. The big price re­flects not just its good con­di­tion but its lo­ca­tion: the house is on the cor­ner of Al­bert Road and El­ton Park, a short walk from the shops and res­tau­rants of Sandy­cove/Glasthule, and about 10 min­utes’ walk to the Dart.

The hall, floored with beige stone tiles, has rather busy b r o wn- p a t t e r n e d Ni n a Camp­bell wall­pa­per. The liv­in­groom on the right, painted dove grey, is a mod­est-sized room with a large pale grey mar­ble fire­place, dou­ble-glazed Marvin sash win­dows and a pol­ished oak floor. There’s a small snug – a lit­tle sit­ting room – to the right of the hall be­hind the liv­ing room: it has French win­dows open­ing into the in­ter­nal court­yard, fac­ing the din­ingroom, seen through an­other set of French win­dows on the op­po­site side of the court­yard. There is also a smart un­der­stairs toi­let.

The ex­tended kitchen/din­ing room at the back of the house is bright, with two sets of glazed doors open­ing into the small rear gar­den. The space is part-di­vided, with the din­ing room sep­a­rated from the kitch- en; an is­land unit with a cream pol­ished gran­ite coun­ter­top stands be­tween the two spa­ces. A large cream Stan­ley range warms the house; a washer and dryer are con­cealed in a cup­board in the hall.

Up­stairs, there are three bed­rooms – two dou­bles and a sin­gle – off a sur­pris­ingly wide land­ing. The main bed­room at the front of the house has a cen­tre rose, sash win­dows with work­ing shut­ters and a smart tiled en-suite shower room. The sin­gle bed­room has clev­erly fit­ted wardrobes.

A mag­no­lia tree stands in the neat front gar­den; elec­tronic tim­ber gates open to the side of the house, off El­ton Park, into the small land­scaped back gar­den. There’s a cherry-red elec­tric awning over the back door and a sand­stone-tiled pa­tio next to a grav­elled space where there’s park­ing for one car, partly screened by plant­ing. Oth­er­wise, the own­ers have res­i­dents’ per­mit park­ing – there are spa­ces to park on one side of El­ton Park.
