The Irish Times 2nd March 2017
Co. Dublin €1.15m
Plenty of space and potential
40 St. Helen’s Road, Booterstown, Co. Dublin
Description: Four-bed Crampton-built semi-detached property
Agent: Beirne & Wise
St. Helen’s Road is a U-shaped residential road of Crampton-built semis situated just off the Rock
Road, a coast road so busy it is best known for its near permanent place in rush-hour traffic bulletins.
Built in the 1930s, the houses tend to come to the market either as complete doer-uppers or as
recently extended and renovated ready-to-walk into family homes.
Number 4, the latest houses on the popular road to come on the market is in the latter category.
For sale through Beirne & Wise for €1.15 million, the property has been lived in by its current
owners for about 10 years.
In that time they have renovated and extended so that the four-bed semi now has 196sq m (2,110sq
ft) of floor space, including the garage.
There is still potential for new owners to extend further – by converting the garage and then building
over it – and indeed that’s what many of the newer owners on the road have done. In the
meantime, there is plenty of space in this well-laid out family home.
The extension, which runs across the rear, is an appealing selling point. The large, bright room – the
rear wall is entirely glazed – has a good-sized seating area, a dining area and a well laid out fitted
Off this to the side, and behind the garage, is a large utility room and a shower room. There is also
the original interconnecting reception rooms which happily still have their 1930s tile fireplaces –
often ripped out and replaced with something far blander.
Another appealing – and practical – original feature is the deep porch with its terrazzo floor.
Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, a small single, and the family bathroom which is dated
and will probably need updating.
Outside the rear extension is a sandstone patio raised about a metre from the small grassy part of
A family with small children would put a railing or fence around the patio before they do much else
because it’s quite a drop. St. Helen’s Road is popular with families trading up from smaller three-bed
semis in the surrounding suburbs and prices tend to be about the €800,000 mark for houses in need
of work and more than €1 million for extended turnkey ones.
The most recent sale on the register was number 25 which sold just shy of its asking price of
