LOCATED A TWO-MINUTE walk from the Clontarf seafront in Dublin 3, 10 Belgrove Road has no shortage of appeal.

The five-bed detached bungalow presents visitors with an unassuming exterior, only to reveal spectacular gardens of 0.28 acres to the rear.

The gardens are west-facing and enjoy a great sense of privacy and tranquillity thanks to an abundance of mature trees, shrubs and plants. There’s a large paved patio for dining al fresco, while a hedge divides the lawn area into two, revealing a larger lawn to the very back. 

To the side of the garden is a 258 sq ft lodge which is currently in use as a home gym, while two sheds provide secure storage.

Stepping inside the bungalow itself, which was built in the 1930s, the accommodation spans 2,131 sq ft. The interior is warm and welcoming, with a brick fireplace with an inset stove in the hallway setting the tone for the rest of the house.
