Now 104 Goatstown Road, a 213sq m (2,295sq ft) semi-detached house on a short spur beside Goatstown Road, is for sale by private treaty for €895,000 through Lynam Auctioneers. It’s opposite Sorahan’s Trimbleston development on Goatstown Road.
A smart black front door – which matches four black bay windows upstairs and down in the double-fronted house – opens into the front hall. There’s a small reception room on the right, currently fitted out as a single bedroom.
On the left of the hall, sliding doors connect two more reception rooms; the second of these has a marble fireplace. Double glass doors from here open into the large livingroom/diningroom. This is a bright space with four very large Velux windows in the arched ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows and glazed double doors looking over the back garden. The space is big enough to accommodate a piano as well as comfortable seating and dining areas.
The modern kitchen has polished black countertops, cream units and there’s a convenient serving hatch opening into the diningroom.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a large fourth bedroom in a converted attic up another steep flight of stairs. Two of the bedrooms are en suite and all the bathrooms, like the fully-tiled family bathroom, are smart.
The whole house has been decorated with artistic flair: white walls are a backdrop to the current owners’ collection of paintings and photographs. There are polished wooden floors in most of the house.
The sheltered and smartly landscaped back garden has a deep deck, a water feature and several seating areas. A shed at the bottom of the garden is wired for electricity. There’s lots of room for parking in the long front garden.
