No 168 has already seen private development on its own patch, as it’s now an extended, quality home with good finishes, bright open plan living spaces, and comes with a ground floor en- suite fifth bedroom, plus a detached home office in its back garden.

The last house in at the long, southern end of Curragh Woods and built in the 1990s by O’Flynn Construction, it’s for sale with John Barry of Frank V Murphy & Co, who guides the now-sizeable 1,710 sq ft semi-detached home at €365,000. 

He says it’s on a private site with southerly aspect, and faces a public green, so another open spaces box ticked here.

Inside is spacious too, with oak-floored front living room with cast iron fireplace, hall with WC, dining room giving patio access, and the scene-setter is the 25’ by 16’ open plan family room/breakfast room kitchen (with white-painted units, topped with hardwood counter). 

The room has a feature corner window, large, square porcelain tiles and is kept cosy with a wood-burning stove.

Separately, there’s a utility and a playroom/bed five, with en-suite, along with one more en-suite overhead where there are four bedrooms, plus family bathroom. Outside, the 100’ deep site’s rear has garden, patio, decking and a block-built office/shed, adding a further 140 sq ft, handy as a store, gym or workspace.
