Coil Coille, 80 Slieve Rua Drive, Stillorgan
Detached bungalow on 0.38 acres giving enormous potential to extend or develop. Extensive land like this with the ideal southerly orientation and 18.75 metres of road frontage is hard to come by in such a prime location in South County Dublin.
This is a highly desirable location on a quiet tree-lined road between Stillorgan and Dundrum, just 14 minutes walk from the LUAS in Kilmacud, 15 minutes from Stillorgan Shopping Centre or 25 minutes from Dundrum Town Centre.
It is very close to Mount Anville Primary School, or an easy walk to Little Dale Academy Preschool, St. Laurences BNS, St. Benildus College, Mount Anville Secondary, St Raphaela's Primary and Secondary Schools.
There are superb sporting facilities nearby including Kilmacud Crokes and Naomh Olaf GAA Clubs. Airfield Farm provides a local haven of tranquility.
O'Dwyer's Pub and the SPAR on Lower Kilmacud Road are just around the corner. In the other direction at the junction with Sweet Briar Lane you have a Centra, a high quality butchers and an organic fruit and veg shop.
From here both Dublin City Centre and the Dublin Mountains are easily accessible.
The bungalow measures approximately 115m2. It is very solidly built with large windows, high ceilings and pine floorboards. It presents a blank canvas with an attractive arched doorway and a large bay window. The enormous back garden, a large attic suitable for conversion, and a garage provide further opportunities to extend this living space.
While the house itself if in good structural order, it would clearly benefit from modernization, giving you the opportunity to configure, equip and decorate it to your own preferences. Accommodation consisting of a spacious hallway, interconnecting reception rooms with fireplaces in each, a kitchen with a southerly facing kitchen window and a door to the back garden, three bedrooms and separate bathroom and guest WC. If you wish to retain it, the option is there to reconfigure the existing bungalow to permit access to the backland plot.
The bungalow itself was built in 1953 by well known builder Peter O'Connor. His daughter, following her wedding, was the first owner. It has stayed in the one family ever since. The property has now been passed down to the next generation. Paperwork is in order and contracts for sale can be issued within days of an offer being accepted.
The builder, Peter O'Connor was a veteran of the 1916 rising, where he was one of the few survivors from the GPO. He was know for high quality work and his consideration of others. He and his sons built a large number of properties in the area including all the bungalows on Slieve Rua Drive, houses, shops and O'Dwyer's Pub on Lower Kilmacud Road, the houses on Hazel Avenue and many more. There is no better way to ensure a pub and shops are within easy walking distance of your daughter than by building them yourself! When they started the Kilmacud area was open fields. It is said he named Slieve Rua Drive after the association between Red Hugh O'Donnell and Three Rock Mountain after his escape from prison in 1590.
Architects concept drawings show options to replace the bungalow with a sizeable detached house to open up access to the backland which could potentially accommodate four more detached houses or 7-10 units for the elderly. Needless to say it would also have plenty of space for one or two large detached houses with lots of garden space for each one. The drawings shown are architects concept drawings which have not been discussed with the planning authorities.
Alternatively the existing bungalow could be extended to your hearts content. The attics on these properties have plenty of height for conversion to habitable space. The option is also there to possibly replace the bungalow with a much larger detached house with a very large garden. Any of these options would require planning permission.
