THERE ARE CERTAIN factors that make any house instantly more appealing – and no doubt access to the sea is one of them. Throw in proximity to the city centre and a large green space and you’ve hit the jackpot – but you may need to win it, too.
On the market for €1.2 million, 24 Dollymount Avenue is a well-maintained four bedder that sits minutes from the sea front and beside St Anne’s Park in Clontarf.
This semi detached family home, that’s spread over 172 m², saw an extension and refurbishment in 2007, so it’s flooded with natural light and full of modern touches that sit alongside the charming features of the original house, like open fireplaces and stained glass.
The contemporary kitchen with its aqua walls and dark cabinetry is a real stand-out feature in this home. It has two breakfast bar areas and a dining area that’s home to a fireplace and doors to the back garden.
While the original living space sits at the front of the house with a big window and an open fireplace, there is a more modern space as part of the extension that is drenched in natural light.
Upstairs, the main bedroom overlooks the back garden and has a walk-in wardrobe as well as an en suite bathroom.
The other two bedrooms have fitted wardrobes while the fourth bedroom is currently a home office. They all share the family bathroom on the same floor.
The attic is prime for conversion and could be home to a fifth bedroom.
If you’ve been house hunting north of the city, Clontarf has probably been on your radar. The area has everything you’ll need, from sports and shops to schools and seaside activities that are all just a walk away.
