DNG Rathfarnham are pleased to present 1 Dodder Park Drive to the market. This unique property occupies a great position at the start of Dodder Park Drive at its junction with Dodder Road Lower opposite the riverbank and features vehicular access to the rear via Dodder Park Road. One of 6 homes originally designed to offer living and working space in one unit number 1 retains its original layout that includes a sizeable shop and storeroom to the front and rear of the ground floor with its own entrances and an internal door leading to the living quarters split between the remainder of the ground floor and the first floor. Built in 1953 and owned by its current owner since 1964 the property has been a much-loved home and place of work. Operated as a grocery store by the owner from 1964 to 1988 the advent of larger supermarkets meant that the shop closed for business in Dublin's millennium year and never reopened. Retained in its original layout the shop and storeroom area offer approximately 35 square metres of space that could easily be transformed into usable living space. The entire property offers approximately 150 square metres of space including entrance hall, guest w.c., dining room, kitchen, shop, and storeroom all on the ground floor. Upstairs there is a bathroom and four bedrooms one of which has been used for many years as a living room but could easily be returned to a bedroom. The property does not feature any front garden or dedicated parking area to the front where on street parking is freely available but does benefit from a south-facing rear garden with a small garage which is accessed via Dodder Park Road. Having been lovingly maintained the property presents in very good if slightly dated condition but benefits from a host of upgrades over the years including modern double glazing installed in 2012 as well as upgraded electrical wiring and the property is heated by oil fired central heating with oil tank and boiler house positioned to the rear. A convenient gated side passage leads from the front of the property to the rear garden and the garage to the rear provides private parking for a small car with the potential for redesign to create further space to park a second vehicle. Dodder Park Drive is ideally tucked away off Dodder Park Road, presenting peaceful surroundings for its residents while also having Terenure and Rathfarnham villages within short walking distance. There is an excellent selection of schools in the area such as Terenure College, High School Rathgar, Our Lady's, and Templeogue College. Dundrum Town Centre, with all it has to offer, is within a few minutes' drive and the city centre is easily accessible via regular bus routes that service the area.
