Just six minutes’ walk from the Forty Foot, it’s in a hard-to-beat location, while the interiors are bright and fresh.
With four bedrooms and a rear extension, 3 Ballygihen Avenue is a large family home full of great features. Built in the Victorian era, it has plenty of period features that add charm and character, while the owners have ensured the space feels suited to contemporary living.
You enter into the spacious hallway, which features ceiling coving and a tiled marble floor. To the right of this space are the interconnected drawing and dining rooms. With its high ceilings, polished timber floor, and sash window with working shutters, it feels elegant, yet the current owners’ neutral colour scheme and modern furniture ensure it’s also a bright space.
The dining room has a polished timber floor, and has space to fit a large dining table, perfect for gatherings. This leads through to the kitchen and breakfast room, which has granite worktops, a marble tiled floor, and a large centre island, while double doors lead out to the back garden. There is also a utility room off this space.
Also on this level is a sitting room, which features a Victorian marble fireplace with a tiled inset, and a sash window, while one of the four bedrooms sits to the front of the house, also with its own fireplace.
Upstairs are the three remaining bedrooms. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite, while another has two large windows, making it particularly bright. All three have their own fireplaces and wood floors.
Outside, the back garden has a decking area perfect for sitting outside, as well as a lawn and flower beds, while to the front there is space for two cars in the driveway.
As well as its proximity to the popular Forty Foot swimming spot, just six minutes’ walk away, this home is also just a short walk from Glasthule village and only 12 minutes’ walk from the nearest DART station, providing access to the city centre.
