These four properties offer bungalow bliss living in North Co Dublin.
7 Loughshinny Bay, Loughshinny
€485k Sherry FitzGerald Swords (01) 890 0944
Loughshinny Bay is a small estate of 18 detached houses about a kilometre from the bay after which it’s named, and about three kilometres from both Rush and Skerries. No7 is on the left as you drive through the estate, giving it a west-facing back garden, where there’s a patio and lawn, and two concrete sheds. The living rooms don’t overlook the garden, however. An inner hall at the back has the four bedrooms arranged around it (one en-suite). The front living room has a vaulted ceiling and a fireplace, and there’s also a family room and a kitchen with a door to the side. The total space is 1,345 sq ft.
52 Balruddery Wood, Balrothery
€315k Property Team Paul Reddy (01) 813 2565
Balruddery Wood is just outside the village of Balrothery, where there’s a nice bit of antiquity, including a 15th- or 16th-century castle and a 19th-century Anglican church with a much older tower attached. It’s also handy for the M1, as Junction 5 is about four kilometres away. Nearby are Balrothery Park and the tennis club. No52 is 1,184 sq ft with two first-floor bedrooms (one en-suite). The ground floor has a living room to the front and an eat-in kitchen at the back, with sliding doors to a lawned back garden facing east. Between those two rooms is the third bedroom, or optionally a study.
Glen Ayr, Malahide
€695k Sherry FitzGerald Malahide (01) 845 4500
Planning permission was granted in 1999 for a new bungalow next door to No3 Connolly Crescent, at the very end of this cul de sac off Kinsealy Lane. Since then, the property, known as Glen Ayr, has been extended itself so that it now measures 1,679 sq ft on two floors in a dormer arrangement. The ground floor has a kitchen/dining room with a fireplace and patio doors, and an archway there leads through to a dual-aspect living room. There’s also a study and two bedrooms downstairs, plus two more bedrooms upstairs (one en-suite).
2 Collinstown, Lusk
€685k Kelly & Co (01) 849 1155
Anyone trying to offload a house in Skerries might take an interest in No2 Collinstown, as its owners want to move there and will consider a part exchange. Built in 2003 and B3-rated, this is a dormer bungalow on three-quarters of an acre, mostly in lawn. There’s also an 18ft by 6ft Swiss-style log cabin on the grounds with a kitchen/living room and a bedroom, and a detached garage. The main house measures 2,745 sq ft with six bedrooms, two on the first floor (both en-suite) and four downstairs with two en-suite. The ground floor also has a sitting room with marble fireplace and a big (some 650 sq ft) kitchen and living room with French doors.
