A STRONG NOD to the luxurious period homes synonymous with Dublin’s south side, at first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking No.7 Balure dates back to the 19th century.

However, look longer and a different story unfolds. Located on the eastern side of Church Road in Killiney sits a family of eight newly developed detached homes.

The last remaining property on the market, No.7 Balure joins its relatives in terms of top notch energy efficiency, an enviable location and plenty of space.

The kitchen is an open plan space complete with dining area and seating area that promotes a multitude of activities that can take place at the same time. The kitchen island is sure to provide ease of access if there’s more than one person cooking, too.

Living on top of one another doesn’t even cross your mind, once you learn that there are two separate lounges, a dining room and spacious bedrooms spread over this home’s three storeys.

Royal blues and rich toned parquet floors are the perfect match in one of the two sitting rooms; a nice contrast to the neutral palettes and soft furnishings that feature throughout the remainder of the house.

Upstairs, the blue and grey hues get cooler to complement four cosy and calming bedrooms. In the master bedroom, a bay window with sash frames takes advantage of the natural light and leafy surroundings.

A wander up to the top floor and you’re presented with yet another social area, perhaps an ideal spot for younger members of the family. A twin bedroom also features in this spacious converted loft space.

Although Balure may embrace the charming features of an aged period property, it’s far from a fixer-upper. Stone fireplaces and wood burning stoves add to the traditional element, yet a photovoltaic panel for renewable energy and super insulation, as well as triple glazed windows, ensure money savings and no drafts or rattling windows.

The location of No. 7 Balure needs very little introduction. Drive thirty minutes from Killiney and you can reach Dublin’s city centre. Keen shoppers, who don’t fancy venturing to town, have Dundrum, Cornelscourt and Dun Laoghaire all within easy reach.

People who need to keep active can take advantage of nearby Glenageary, Sandycove and Carrickmines’ tennis clubs, not to mention the stunning hill and seaside walks that the areas of Killiney and Dalkey are so widely known for.

No. 7 Balure, Church Road, Killiney, Co Dublin is on sale for €1,650,000 from Hassett & Fitzsimons via Daft.ie.
