Striking new build in a Dublin 4 neighbourhood with centuries of history
You’ll be a short walk from Beggars Bush Barracks, dating back to 1827.

1 Daft Daft

LOCATED JUST OFF Bath Avenue, 6a Derrynane Gardens is truly a property that stands out from the rest.

The other homes on the unassuming Sandymount road date back to c. 1929, and are relatively standard two-up, two-down styles. This three-bedroom property, meanwhile, is a thoroughly modern space.

There’s more history in the surrounding roads and lanes, too: you’re a short walk from Beggar’s Bush Barracks, built in 1827 as a training depot for British soldiers. Just around the corner is the Victorian-era Vavasour Square, dating back to the 1850s.

Despite the strikingly modern design, 6a Derrynane Gardens is still a practical and comfortable family home through and through.

There’s a courtyard outside, as well as paving and low-maintenance gardens for a sense of privacy. Inside, parquet oak flooring adds a sense of airiness, and plenty of light soaks the property thanks to roof windows and patio doors.

The kitchen/dining area features Shaker-style storage units, a breakfast island and quartz worktops, as well as recessed lighting over the work areas.

It’s a spacious and bright room that works well for dining and entertaining, and there’s a utility room for extra storage, too.

As with most new builds, 6a Derrynane Gardens has an A-rating for energy, making use of an air-to-water heating system, low-energy radiators and energy efficient AluClad windows.

The contemporary design of this home continues upstairs in the three bedrooms, which are all sizeable doubles. All are carpet-clad with large wardrobes, and the master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom.

The location of this property is hard to beat – you’ll be right between Ballsbridge and Sandymount, a short walk from any number of shops, cafés and restaurants, plus the Aviva Stadium and Sandymount Strand.

The area is serviced largely by the DART line, which will have you in the city centre in about 15 minutes, though plenty of buses serve the area too.

6A Derrynane Gardens, Sandymount, Dublin 4 is on sale for €795,000 from Quillsen Ballsbridge via
