If the agent’s details are correct, this art deco property in Foxrock, Dublin, Ireland was built a little later than you might expect.
Thanks to Ultan for letting us know about this place, which looks more 1930s than 1950s to us, but as we don’t know the area very well, we will have to bow to the agent’s knowledge. To be honest, it isn’t all that important.
What is important is the house itself, which looks to be a pretty much untouched example of an art deco property, thanks perhaps to this being in the ownership of the same family since construction.
The agent points to this place needing refurbishment or renovation, which is definitely the case here. But there are so many original features here to play with.
The shape of the house us pretty much untouched, the windows look original, not least the ones overlooking the staircase. Throw in the internal doors, the kitchen and the stairway and you do have something special. Especially if you update the finishes throughout.
Good space inside and out too, that starts with the entrance porch with under stair storage, leading to an entrance hall with guest WC and the large rear facing sitting room, the dining room with access to the family room and the kitchen / breakfast room. The utility, store room and garage as well as a door leading to the rear garden are all accessed from the kitchen.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three of which are double and the main family bathroom.
As for the outside, there is a ‘sizeable’ front garden with driveway and a 108 ft. long rear garden bordered by mature hedging for ‘complete privacy’. Potential to extend obviously (with the right permission), ideally in keeping with the original build.
€695,000 is the asking price.
