Karen Mulvaney of Coldwell Banker is delighted to present this extended three bedroom terraced house with attic converted in beautiful Clontarf. Less than five minutes` walk from the sea, the location cannot be beaten. To make it all the more perfect there is a long South facing rear garden and off street parking to the front.
Entering the bright airy hallway there is a cosy living room to the front of the house with an open fire. Following through the hall there are double door storage areas and a downstairs shower room and w.c. The open plan kitchen and family room is infused with light and is a magnificent space with double doors leading to the south facing garden.
On the first floor level there is a bathroom, two double bedrooms and a single. All complete with built in wardrobes.
Upstairs again the converted attic space has the added bonus of a w.c. on the same level.
Clontarf is a coastal suburb on the northside of Dublin. It has a range of commercial facilities mainly centred on Vernon Avenue, walking distance from Seapark Drive. Clontarf`s most notable amenity is its seafront, with a promenade running continuously from Alfie Byrne Road to the wooden bridge at Dollymount. As well as extensive walks and green areas, St Anne`s Park situated between Clontarf and Raheny is the second largest municipal park in Dublin, is part of a former 202 hectares (500 acres) estate assembled by members of the Guinness family.

Clontarf contains numerous sporting facilities, such as GAA, Rugby, Cricket, Tennis and Sailing. The largest municipal park is nearby (North) Bull Island, also shared between Clontarf and Raheny. North Bull Island is an island located in Dublin Bay, about 5 km long and 800 m wide, lying roughly parallel to the shore off Clontarf (including Dollymount), Raheny, Kilbarrack, and facing Sutton. It has been named by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve. It is the only biosphere reserve in a capital city in the world. The island, with a sandy beach known as Dollymount Strand running its entire length, the island also hosts St Anne`s and Royal Dublin golf clubs.
Clontarf is one stop on the DART from the city centre, has a cosy village atmosphere and most roads lead down to the sea.
The place is steeped in history. Clontarf`s ancient name, Cluain Tarbh, means "meadow of the bulls", from the sound of the waves on the seafront which was likened to the bellowing of bulls.
