House Of The Day: Value for money in South Dublin
Today’s House of the Day is tucked in a quiet little residential street that you almost wouldn’t know was there when you are passing on the N11. Hidden away from the road at the turn for St. Columcille’s Hospital in Loughlinstown, just as the M11 arrives in Dublin and becomes the N11. From that roundabout you can turn right to head into Shankill or up into Killiney, or left towards the hospital and a set of quiet streets where today’s house lies.
Expansive 3-Bed Family Home
Inside you find a large 3-bed family home. The property extends to approx. 1,255 sq ft and includes a large living room with wood floors and feature fireplace, a kitchen-dining room and the addition of a conservatory leading into the lovely rear garden.
On top of this, at the back of the garden is a substantial structure that is currently used as a gym but would suit most uses. It has heat and electricity so could double as an office, playroom or more living space.
Upstairs there is two double bedrooms – the master is ensuite – and a third smaller bedroom, plus nice family bathroom.
This quiet street is perfect for families and the house has ample off-street parking and front garden.
Value For Money in South Dublin
Parc Na Silla is not a well known estate but it’s tucked in such a handy location for access into or out of Dublin, not to mention into the desirable local villages of South Dublin. Compared to many of the local addresses in this area, this seems good value and one of the few chances for a family to acquire a good sized 3-bedroom semi-detached house for under €400,000.
Indeed, there are already sales on the street asking much higher prices. Sherry Fitzgerald (not unknown for over-pricing properties) has just launched the sale of a 3-bed detached house in the estate for a whopping €450,000.
In addition to this, there is a small site of new homes currently under construction at the back of the estate. You can be sure that once these are completely they will be asking high €400,000s or even more, which will attract much attention to the estate and pull up prices on theses good original homes.
There’s a great opportunity to acquire a great home for a growing family.
