De­scrip­tion: Four-bed mews near Dún Laoghaire cen­tre – and Garda sta­tion Agent: Vin­cent Fin­negan A four-bed­room house laid out over three lev­els near the cen­tre of Dún Laoghaire was built in 2016 and rented for about a year – but has the feel­ing of a new home.

Cur­rently un­fur­nished, it has a sim­ple lay­out, very neu­tral dec­o­ra­tion and good fit­tings – oak doors, triple-glazed Mun­ster Join­ery win­dows, smart bath­rooms and an A3 en­ergy rat­ing.

The 180sq m (1,937sq ft) ter­raced house with cut-stone front is for sale for ¤695,000 through agent Vin­cent Fin­negan, who says there is a lot of in­ter­est prior to view­ing,with one bid in at the ask­ing price.

Its lo­ca­tion is a sell­ing point: down a gated laneway off Cor­rig Av­enue, op­po­site the Garda sta­tion, and close to the cor­ner with George’s Street, Dún Laoghaire’s main street.

The front hall, floored with cream porce­lain tiles, opens on the right into the kitchen, fit­ted with cream units and a brown pol­ished gran­ite counter top.

The kitchen/liv­ing/din­ing room is an open-plan L-shaped space, and the only room down­stairs.

The liv­ing/din­ing area, open­ing di­rectly off the kitchen, runs the width of the house. It’s oak-floored and has a solid-fuel stove set into an al­cove at one end. A door opens from the other end back into the hall; new own­ers might par­ti­tion the space to create a smaller den/study.

Gran­ite flag­stone

French win­dows open to a wide rear gar­den, with a gran­ite flag­stone pa­tio and steps up to a lawn sur­rounded by high stone walls.

There’s a smart down­stairs toi­let and an un­der­stairs stor­age space off the front hall which cur­rently ac­com­mo­dates a washer and dryer.

Steep stairs lead to the first floor, off which are three bed­rooms: one is a small­ish dou- ble, the other two are de­cent-sized dou­bles, both with wal k - i n wardr o b e s and en-suite shower rooms. The fam­ily bath­room has a bath, shower and a port­hole win­dow.

More steep stairs lead to the sec­ond floor, and a large car­peted at­tic bed­room: it has four deep Veluxes and an en-suite shower room with smart white brick tiles. There is some un­der-eaves stor­age off the small top land­ing.

An elec­tronic gate opens into Sy­den­ham Mews, where there are quite a few houses built be­tween the Vic­to­rian houses of Cor­rig Av­enue and Northum­ber­land Av­enue. Num­ber 22 comes with three – and at a pinch, four – park­ing spa­ces to the front.

There’s a ¤500 an­nual ser­vice charge.
