Price : €700,000.00 (Region)
4 Bedrooms
2 Bathrooms


This is a substantial four-bedroomed family home in a great location. But, and it is a fairly big but, despite its relative youth, it is in need of a complete refurb project. The good news is that this has been largely factored into the asking price and it is, as we would say in the trade, ‘priced to sell’.


A good-sized sitting room with double doors to a dining room and patio doors to the rear lie on one side of the hall. On the other is a room that could function very well as a playroom/tv nook/office. Increasingly we are finding houses where the smallest bedroom has been sacrificed to make a ‘work-from-home’ space so this is a definite bonus for buyers who have it on the ‘must have’ list. The kitchen at the rear of the house is a decent size space, although fittings are in need of replacement. A downstairs WC completes the facilities on the ground floor.

Upstairs there are four decent bedrooms, one with a very ‘80s version of an en-suite, with the wash-hand basin located in the bedroom and the loo and shower in an enclosed room.  There is a bathroom with sanitary ware in a colour that was, believe it or not, highly fashionable in its day (this will have to go, no bones about it).


The south facing rear garden has good potential, not currently realised. To the front there is off-street parking and, directly across the road, a large green area which is nice to overlook and potentially a super play space.

This is a fully mature area, with schools and shops in abundance; a decent bus service runs outside the estate. The jewel in the crown in this part of Rathfarnham though is the availability of parks – St Enda’s and Marlay are both within easy walking distance – with playgrounds, cafes and playing fields in abundance. A walkers paradise for sure.


We expect the successful buyer here to be someone who sees possibilities not problems. And when this home has reclaimed its proper form, they will be well rewarded.
