ALTHOUGH much has changed at Dunbrack in Revington Park, its location on Limerick’s North Circular Road remains as sought after and as residential as when the semi-detached house was built in the 1930s.
Comprehensively renovated and extended by current owners who have had it since the early 2000s, it now has over 2,800 sq ft of living space and, with a guide price of €595,000, is at the upper end of the city’s housing market.
Selling agents Sherry FitzGerald O’Malley say that the location, in an idyllic residential enclave of family homes close to amenities and schools — making it the type of property which is very much in demand with trade-up buyers and which typically attracts buyers relocating from Dublin.
Accommodation includes an elegant blue and yellow front drawing room with a raised marble fireplace, picture rails and pelmeted curtains.
Double doors from here open into a huge open- plan kitchen-dining room which has a cream country-style kitchen with granite worktops, red wall tiles and a centre island as well as a dining area with highly polished timber flooring.
To the rear, in a substantial architecturally designed extension, is a sunroom painted a striking shade of orange which has glazed floor tiles, a vaulted glass ceiling insert and a curved back wall with six full-height windows and a set of double doors in the centre.
Also in the extension is a family room/music room with polished timber flooring, a marble fireplace with a gas stove and double doors opening onto the garden. Off the kitchen there’s a utility room and a guest WC.
The first floor has a bathroom and three carpeted bedrooms including one with an en-suite and a dressing room.
A second set of stairs leads to a fourth bedroom, with an en-suite, in the attic.
