Full Description

Gortevan is a most attractive detached four bedroom bungalow constructed in the 1950’s standing on approximately 0.3 acre. The house benefits from having dual vehicular access opening onto both Barnhill Road and Wolverton Glen. The accommodation currently extends to approximately 103sq.m (1,109sq.ft) and there is full planning permission in place to extend and renovate the existing property and create a wonderful contemporary family home of approximately 200sq.m (DLRCOCO Planning Ref. D18B/0503).

The house offers well-proportioned accommodation laid out over one level. While it has been well-maintained throughout it would now benefit from some upgrading and modernisation. Internally the accommodation briefly comprises an entrance hall, living room, four bedrooms one of which is a box room, a family bathroom and a bright kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the rear garden. The windows throughout the house are predominately double glazed units with a few original single glazed units remaining and the heating is gas fired. One of the biggest features of Gortevan is the rear garden which measures approximately 44m in length. It is currently laid out in lawn with mature planting and hedging to the boundary walls. To the very end of the garden there are large vehicular gates and a parking area. There is an established right of way via Wolverton Glen in the property title.

There is huge opportunity here for purchasers to create a wonderful home with the existing planning permission granted or indeed by attaining their own planning permission for a single dwelling or possibly two houses. The permission that has been granted would permit you to demolish the existing single storey extension to the rear and construct a new single storey extension with roof lights. The accommodation internally would comprise of three spacious double bedrooms one of which is en suite, a living room/library, a large family bathroom, utility and w.c. To the back of the house there is a wonderful large modern open plan kitchen/dining/family space which extends to approximately 62sq.m. This overlooks the rear garden and opens out onto a large patio area and there is a mezzanine level above this. The planning permission granted also provides for a new sliding electric gate and vehicular access from Wolverton Glen which would be preferable for most people given the busy nature of Barnhill Road.

Gortevan is located on Barnhill Road which is within a short strolling distance of Dalkey Heritage Town where you will find an abundance of excellent restaurants, specialists food shops, services and amenities. There are many leisure and recreational activities in the surrounding area including swimming at the Forty Foot and Sandycove Harbour with Killiney Golf Club, Sandycove and Glenageary tennis clubs, Cuala GAA/Dalkey United Football Club all being within close proximity.
