Located in its own square of 14 townhouses, off prestigious Park Avenue, 31 Park Court Sandymount Dublin 4 is a beautifully presented two-bedroom, single storey, terraced home.
Ready to walk into and live in, it is perfect for first time buyers, a young family or a couple downsizing from a large family home. It is also rare to find a townhouse with real development potential which this also has.
Designer Catherine Malone has created a most desirable home. This includes a light-filled, south-facing, very private, tranquil patio/garden. With its original high, old stone boundary wall, it is not overlooked. It could be a cottage in remote County Wicklow, but it’s just a stone’s throw from the city.
The east-facing living/dining room is a good size (5.3 x 3.7 metres) and still has its wood and marble open fireplace and would be perfect for a wood-burning stove. Although there is electric central heating (Goldshield), new owners may opt for town gas which has just come to the square. The family bathroom, which was fully tiled recently, has a smart Portuguese limestone full-width shelf and mirror. Each of the two bedrooms has good storage with floor-to-ceiling fully mirrored wardrobes. There are solid oak floors throughout the house. There is also good storage in the newly insulated attic space which runs the full length of the house (16 metres/53 feet).
This townhouse offers more surprises and potential to develop – a garage. With its timber rafters and white walls, it is currently set out for summer parties and makes you think of tapas and fine wines. It would also make a great ensuite third bedroom, kitchen/diner or perhaps a big home office. Concept drawings for the garage are available to the new owners.
Right beside Sandymount Village Green and all its facilities, Park Court is a wonderful place to live. The square is private and secure, an especially important consideration for young families or older people. It’s just a five-minute walk from Sandymount Village with its trendy cafés and award-winning restaurants and pubs. Also nearby are Sandymount Strand, the DART, some of Dublin’s best schools, St Vincent’s Hospital, the Aviva Stadium and the city.
