You can bank on lovely valley views from this riverside home

ANYONE who has taken the Sunday trip along the banks of the Lee to a certain garden centre will be familiar with Dripsey.

This village is tiny, but is more a ‘baile fearainn’, a group of dwellings spread around a townland that is traditionally Irish, according to Minister O’Cuiv.

And this bungalow, at Agharinagh, Dripsey, is a case in point, and an endangered species in An Taisce’s terms.

It comes with four bedrooms, a garage and a three quarter of an acre site with some of the loveliest views of the Lee Valley. These are made the most of with an outdoor Swedish hot tub, one of those quirky additions becoming a more commonplace feature in house sales.

With a floor area of 2,000 square feet and in very good condition, the bungalow is on the market with Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald who gives a guide price of €385,000 for entry to this tightly regulated zone.

Accommodation includes a hallway, lounge with interconnecting dining room and a kitchen which has been newly fitted and comes with a separate breakfast area.

The family room with French doors to a patio and deck could count as the fourth bedroom, while the remaining bedrooms are well fitted and share a main bathroom.

According to Norma Healy, the attic is suitable for conversion and the house has good wooden floors and fixtures. It come with electronic access gates, an alarm and has a tarmac driveway.
