While in need of modernisation, this 1950s era house offers tremendous potential to create an outstanding 21st century home in a great location within easy walking distance of Dalkey village centre. Positioned in a quiet cul-de-sac leading to a large and leafy amenity green, the property forms part of a mature and settled residential development less than 15 minutes walk from the heart of the heritage town and within easy reach of the many shops, boutiques, pubs, restaurants, artisan cafes and other amenities that make Dalkey such a sought-after address. The property has been extended over the years to bring the total floor area to over 1,300 square feet. Thanks to the presence of a large back garden and a conversion-friendly attic, and subject to planning regulation, there's also the exciting possibility of extending the property further as part of any improvement works. Existing accommodation is versatile and comprises a good-sized entrance hall, which leads on to the main reception room, where the original living and dining rooms have been combined in open-plan configuration to create an exceptionally large family living space. From here, a glass door leads on to a sunroom looking directly on to a spacious sun patio at the rear of the house. Also to the rear is a kitchen large enough to accommodate a dining area, while to the side there's a downstairs ensuite bedroom room overlooking the front garden, which could be repurposed as a home office, den or other use. Upstairs are three more bedrooms, two overlooking the front garden and one the back, along with a family bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and walk-in cubicle shower. Outside, the front garden is currently laid out in gravel with brick-faced planting areas and a hard surface driveway with parking for two cars. To the rear, there's a large south-west facing back garden, where the sun patio is adjoined by a lawn that in turn leads on to a large planting area, populated by mature plants, shrubs and trees At the front of the house, a pedestrian short cut connecting the cul-de-sac to nearby Barnhill Road facilitates easy walking to Dalkey village. Call today to arrange a viewing of this must-see property.
