Number 189 Vernon Avenue, Clontarf, is a four-bedroom, semi-detached family home which is being brought to the market by REA Grimes, with an asking price of €880,000.

A four-bedroom, semi-detached house in a highly desirable Dublin suburb is being brought to the market by REA Grimes. 

Number 189 Vernon Avenue in Clontarf is a much-loved family home which the previous owners have renovated and upgraded with great care over the years.

Substantial extensions to the ground and upper level were added in 2008 and 2009, and it has recently been fitted with new carpets and fully repainted.

With an asking price of €880,000, the property is situated in an area renowned for its excellent choice of schools, shops and leisure facilities, and for its proximity to the UNESCO-listed seabird and nature reserve at Bull Island.

The beach and long stretch of open sands at Dollymount Strand is another popular attraction.  

Measuring 151 sqm, the house is deceptively spacious. 

The entrance hall leads to two large, well-lit reception rooms with wooden floors, which run the length of the house, and are separated by sliding doors. 

The hall also provides access to a bright and spacious kitchen and dining area, with wooden and tiled floors. 

The modern, fitted kitchen has a built-in double oven, hob and dishwasher and numerous wall and floor units.

Glass sliding doors from the kitchen open out to a patio and large lawned garden. There is also a guest WC with wash-hand basin on the ground floor. 

On the upper level, there are four bedrooms, with fitted wardrobes in each. The master bedroom overlooks the front of the property and has an ensuite with tiled floor, WC, wash-hand basin and walk-in shower.

A large double bedroom and a single bedroom are also at the front, while the second double bedroom is at the rear.

A large, fully tiled family bathroom with walk-in shower, WC and wash-hand basin overlooks the garden.

There is a driveway with off-street parking and a private lawn, and a large garage measuring 12 sqm to the side of the property. 

The location is another outstanding feature. Clontarf Promenade and cycle track are approximately a 15-minute walk away, while Clontarf Village, with its eclectic mix of restaurants and boutiques, is also within walking distance. 

The area is well-serviced by public transport, providing easy access to the city centre, and Killester DART Station is also within walking distance. 

The 240-acre St Anne’s Park, with its array of GAA, rugby and soccer pitches and tennis courts, is another popular local amenity.
