House of the Day: 9 Limekiln Road, Terenure

Today's House of the Day wins because of the surprise bonus of extra living space, cleverly laid out with the family home in mind.

9 Limekiln Road, Terenure
9 Limekiln Road, Terenure – Surprising space from an unassuming house.

Today’s House of the Day is a surprising delight behind an unassuming front door. This semi-detached 4-bed is very alike many others in the popular Limekiln area of Terenure / Templeogue. No. 9 Limekiln Road has a good front living room and kitchen, plus 4 decent family-sized bedrooms upstairs.

But heading through the kitchen leads to a fantastic double-height extension creating a large kitchen-living area with room for a large kitchen dining table and then area for sofas and TV. This makes the kitchen the heart of the home. And we love the bold choice in colour – the deep dark red really makes this room. Feels like someone is cooking with chillies and sizzling hot meals!

Finally, to put the cherry on the cake, the garden opens up to almost 100′ of beautifully laid lawn.
