This delightful, spacious, 1950's detached home is desirably situated on the southern slopes of Mount Merrion hill. It is just a short walk from the children's playground and local shops in Deerpark. It has a sunny westerly facing back garden 82ft/25m long and 12m wide.

The floor area of the original house was 126.5sq.m, with the extension to the rear and the two storey extension behind the garage this brings it to 183sq.m. If you add the garage, boiler house and adjacent passage to the back garden it brings the total floor area to 200.5sq.m. (2045sq.ft).

It is well located located close to a host of amenities including Stillorgan Shopping Centre, Schools (including Mount Anville and Oatlands College), Colleges, UCD and bus routes to Dublin City Centre along the N11 QBC. There is an excellent selection of sports clubs within easy walking distance including Deerpark Tennis Club and Kilmacud Crokes GAA Club,

The owner moved out of Dublin in the 1980s but kept this property on as a well-maintained rental. This is NOT a probate sale. It is now in need of modernization and adoption as a much loved family home. It is vacant and ready for a new owner.

There is enormous potential to remodel this property and further expand it over the garage or into the back garden as desired. The existing rear extension was re-roofed recently with a pitched roof. skylights or a roof-light could be added into this space.
