Enjoying a convenient location in a mature residential development within easy reach of Stillorgan, Dundrum and nearby Goatstown Village, this 1950s period property offers excellent potential to create an outstanding contemporary family home in one of South Dublin’s most sought-after suburbs.
While the house would benefit from modernisation, any investment made in refurbishment will reap rich rewards, thanks to its underlying fundamental strengths. These include spacious, well-proportioned rooms, a sunny rear aspect, large gardens and a great location close to shops, schools and a wealth of leisure amenities.
Accommodation comprises an entrance hall with separate porch, a kitchen and two receptions on the ground floor, while upstairs are three bedrooms, including two good-sized doubles, a family bathroom and landing.
Number 9 Eden Park Avenue offers scope to add substantial extra living space by converting the garage and attic, and extending into the large back garden, as has been done in a number of neighbouring homes. This offers the potential to create an exceptionally large family home with a spacious open-plan kitchen-dining room at its heart. Call us today to arrange a viewing.
