An exceptionally attractive red brick fronted semi-detached family home positioned on the western side of this very family orientated cul-de-sac convenient to the seafront, many primary and secondary schools, excellent recreational and leisure activities as well as having the wonderful facilities of Dalkey Town Centre and Glasthule on the doorstep.
3 Dundela Avenue is a superb family home that is presented in excellent decorative order throughout and offers bright and airy, generously proportioned accommodation that extends to approximately 185.8 sq.m (2,000 sq.ft). A generous reception hall opens into a lovely sitting room. Next comes the dining room that has steps down into the family room and home office with the kitchen accessed off the dining room. This in turn accesses the utility room, a shower room and the lovely garden room which opens out onto the large, elevated west facing decked area.
Upstairs on the first floor are four bedrooms (one laid out as a home office) with views of Killiney Obelisk and St. Paul's Church steeple and a family bathroom concludes the accommodation at this level. A proper stairwell leads up to the converted attic and this area has excellent under eaves storage.
To the front of the property there is gravelled off street parking for a number of cars while the rear garden is a particular feature of this excellent family home. It measures approximately 30m (100ft) and as it faces west it is a complete suntrap. It is very private, not overlooked and laid out in lawn bordered by mature planting, trees and shrubbery with an elevated suntrap decked area ideal for al fresco dining.
The property is presented in excellent decorative order throughout, however, still offers the prospective purchaser the potential and opportunity to extend to the side and rear to their own taste and flair subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions.
The location of this home on the western side of Dundela Avenue makes it the perfect place for those looking to establish themselves on one of Dublin's most desirable and sought-after addresses.

Dun Laoghaire is nearby with its ever-walkable piers, the People's Park (which hosts a farmer's market every Sunday) and numerous shops and restaurants in the town. The recently constructed cycle track connects Sandycove with Blackrock. The four yacht clubs and extensive marina at Dun Laoghaire Harbour will be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiasts.
