De­scrip­tion: 1970s five-bed with ten­nis court in Killiney cul-de-sac Agent: Lis­ney Wil­low Lodge, 2 Ce­na­cle Grove, in Killiney, Co Dublin, is a large house, but there’s still po­ten­tial to re­con­fig­ure or ex­pand the space: ten­nis play­ers will like the large pri­vate ten­nis court on one side of the wide house – but new own­ers might con­sider build­ing on it, or re­turn­ing it back to gar­den use.

A large play­room and dou­ble garage on the other side could also per­haps be con­verted to sep­a­rate ac­com­mo­da­tion – per­haps a granny flat/stu­dio or home of­fice.

There’s plenty of room for ma­noeu­vre in the 390sq m (4,197sq ft) five-bed on 0.7 acres which is for sale through Lis­ney for ¤1.195 mil­lion.

The front porch opens into a wide, spa­cious en­trance hall: the in­ter­con­nect­ing draw­ingroom and din­ingroom span most of the width of the house; the din­ingroom over­looks the large con­ser­va­tory at the rear of the house.

There’s a cosy sit­tin­groom to the left of the front door over­look­ing the front gar­den.

The kitchen/break­fast room on the right of the hall runs from the front to the back of the house, open­ing into the good-sized tile-floored con­ser­va­tory.

A door at the right of the kitchen leads to the play­room which in turn leads into the dou­ble garage.

Up­stairs, off a long, wide land­ing, are five bed­rooms, two of them are en suite; one of the five is cur­rently used as a study.

The main bed­room has built-in wardrobes; cur­tains are draped over the en­trance to the en suite, which has a cor- ner bath and more fit­ted wardrobes.

There’s a large fam­ily bath­room, with flo­ral-pat­terned san­i­tary ware and large tim­ber-sur­round mir­rors; there’s also a down­stairs toi­let.

Out­side, the front gar­den is laid mainly in lawn, bor­dered by very high hedges; there’s room to park sev­eral cars in the front drive­way.

A pa­tio runs be­hind the house, with a steeply slop­ing lawn run­ning down to ma­ture trees di­vid­ing Wil­low Lodge from a large pe­riod home be­hind it.

The ten­nis court is to the left of the lawn.

Valota, a five-bed bun­ga­low on Ce­na­cle Grove, re­cently went sale agreed; the ask­ing price was ¤1.45 mil­lion.
