Modern mews on Rock Road cul de sac for €750,000

Detached, double-fronted property has a large open-plan kitchen, dining, living room

Built in 2009, Saremo is a cut-stone, three-bedroom mews house on Grotto Avenue, a small cul de sac, one street up from Booterstown Avenue on the Rock Road.

The well-appointed, detached, double-fronted property has a sitting room to the front and a large open-plan kitchen, dining, living room that spans the width of the house and overlooks a timber deck that has seen better days.

The back garden, a small lawned space with a painted garden shed and a southerly aspect, is enclosed by lovely granite walls that once linked the lawn to a bigger house on Booterstown Avenue.

The last time Saremo came to market was in 2010 when it sold in May of that year for €710,000, according to the property price register. It's back on the market asking for €795,000, an increase of 11 per cent in a five-year period that has recorded far higher double-digit growth for property.


In the kitchen, there are vanilla-gloss units. The owners added an island to the room to better divide it into zones. The dining area is big enough to comfortably fit a table for 10. There is also a lounge area. Underfloor heating warms the ground floor and the absence of open fireplaces gives the property a B3 Ber rating.

Also at hall level is a good-size guest toilet and a separate utility room, situated under the stairs.

An oak-balustraded staircase leads up to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms. The two rooms to the back are light-filled with one set up as a home office. The master bedroom has a shower en suite.

The property also has a large attic room, big enough to accommodate a double bed and a desk. The room has under-the eaves storage, a built-in storage press and a shower room off it.

The property measures 162sq m (1743sq ft) including the attic room.

Saremo is accessed via electric gates and there is off-street parking for up to two cars.

While hidden down a quiet side street, the sound of the Dart and other commuter trains is audible. Booterstown Dart Station is a two-minute walk.
