4 Gowran Hall, Ballygihen Avenue, Sandycove, County Dublin, A96 EH72






70 sq.m.



Janet Carroll is delighted to be selling this superbly presented 2 double-bedroomed apartment by the seaside in Sandycove by Private Treaty. Measuring circa 70sqm/750 square feet in a complex of only 16 apartments this setting is magnificent. Ideal for many but especially ‘right sizers' it has the feeling of living in a house rather than an apartment, as the property is beautifully positioned on the ground floor overlooking the landscaped grounds and the streetscape of Glasthule. The parking is well positioned, and the building has been modified with a ramp should one need it. Small pets are allowed.

This location needs no introduction, being a few moments from both the ocean and the villages of Sandycove and Glasthule. One word comes to mind when encountering this location, lifestyle. This part of South Dublin epitomises what most would dream of attaining in a property. This part of our fair town has a fabulous sense of being removed from the daily hustle and bustle with its scenic walks, sailing clubs and eateries on your doorstep but do not be mistaken, you can be in Dublin city in a short time by car, dart or bus should you so wish. That is why people flock to Sandycove.

Entrance Hall:
This property benefits from having an inner hall as you enter which is great for welcoming guests, security and additional storage . The vendors have a neatly set cabinet that adds both ambiance and practicality to start this journey. Fitted carpet and door to hall.
Immaculate is a word we rarely use, but this home is such an example. Cleverly thought through, stylish and robust they have thought of everything. The corridor is finished in a fitted carpet.

Bedroom 2: c. 2.67m x 3.69m
A bright well-set room with a laminate floor and built in wardrobes. A window provides for natural light.

Bedroom 1: c. 2.96m x 3.69m
Laminate floor built in wardrobes and a window brightens this space well

Bathroom: c. 2.32m x 2.35m
This room has been updated with contrast porcelain tiling on the walls and floor. Finished in a contemporary tone this space is hardwearing and practical. The vendors spared no expense by investing in Villeroy and Boch for the w/c (with concealed cistern), the bath complete with rain head shower and additional showerhead and finally, the cleverly placed cabinets fitted to provide both a mirror function and additional storage. Another cabinet sits beside the bath and offers more practicality. A ventilation feed runs through the building leading to the roof. A mention must go to the heated floor in the bathroom which provides a bit of luxury on those cool mornings we have all long since forgotten!

Living / Dining Room: c. 4.70m x 4.71m
This family have cleverly used shelving and cabinetry to separate the room and it works to great effect. A large window provides a view to the green and village life for that sense of community. This home is private but as we said, you are on the doorstep of some beautiful shops and eateries such as Cavistons and the Cook Book Café.

Kitchen/ Breakfast Room: c. 4.40m x 2.35m
This kitchen has been well thought through and the fitted cabinets are glass panelled on top with lighting for neatness and would serve well for delph presentation. An island with stone counter top makes the perfect breakfast nook to enjoy a cup of coffee before the day begins or indeed a catch up after a long day in the city. There is room in the living room for a dining table should one wish as well but it is nice to have a space in the kitchen for the day to day meals. Integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer, induction hob and extractor fan. Sharp microwave. The sink conveys the French influence with a deep-set country style and black tap to complete the look.


There is one designated parking space and plenty of on street parking available. A well-kept secret is the roof top terrace which has absolutely stunning views from Greystones to Howth and on a clear day, almost beyond that! These views are simply superb, uninterrupted and all your own! Mature Eucalyptus trees provide a subtle touch of nature.
