Who wouldn’t love a front porch like that?

This house for sale in Dalkey at 24 Corrig Road is roomier than it appears, mostly thanks to the modern glass orangery extension to the rear which is slightly angled to follow the garden. The house is fresh on the market at €1,0450,000 and inside there’s plenty of charm.

Through the front porch and into the hall, the kitchen and dining room sit in the original part of the house overlooking the front part of the house which has been extensively updated but still retains much of its original charms. Bespoke timber joinery in a pale blue by Victorian Kitchen Company unify the two rooms, filling the fireplace alcoves with useful storage in the bright dining room.

The country style kitchen is spacious and comfortable, with a stove and a large sash window. Off is it a small utility and the downstairs WC. There are original timber herringbone floors in both of these rooms, giving them a rustic, cosy feel.

Both room, as well as the hall flowing into the large living room, which runs the width of the house. Brightly lit by sash windows on two walls and French doors into the orangery, it centres on a beautiful stone fireplace that truly makes it the heart of the room. The orangery-style conservatory is also very spacious with ample storage thanks to a wall of bookcases. It leads onto a raised verandah overlooking the garden.

Upstairs are three double bedrooms and one box room, along with a hot press and family bathroom. The largest bedroom, to the rear, also has its own ensuite and looks onto the private back garden. The garden is considerable in size, about 46 metres long and faces east, so it gets a lot of morning and afternoon sunshine.

Out front, the drive has been cobbled with parking for two cars and an electric charging hub. There’s also a small shed for storage.

In terms of living in Dalkey, this house has everything you could need –period features, considered interiors, ample space, and walking distance to the village and the sea.
