Woodlawn, Ballyboughal, County Dublin €750,000
he Ballyboughal Hedgerow Society was the first of its kind to receive an official government visit when Secretary of State Joe O’Brien recognized their commitment to environmental work. In particular, he commended their efforts to support nature and wildlife by planting trees, laying hedges and breeding pollinators to support our all-important bee population.
Environmentally conscious home-seekers looking to join the buzz of this biodiversity-friendly community can do so by putting down roots in the aptly named Woodlawn, a detached house just hedge-lengths from the village center.
With views of the Dublin Mountains, it is accessed via a private driveway and sits on two acres of grounds.
Woodlawn is a substantial 1,690 sq ft home with living room, kitchen/dining room, laundry room, bathroom, powder room, study and four bedrooms, one ensuite.
But if new owners want to hedge their bets by having the option to add more living space, the home comes with planning permission for a two-story extension that would greatly increase its current living space.
Recently renovated with new floors and double glazing, the house is in walkable condition.
Within the landscaped grounds are lawned gardens, mature woodland and a patio with fire pit and outdoor lighting. There is also a 2,260 square foot detached workshop with power and lighting.
Ballyboughal, a prestigious area in a still relatively rural part of north County Dublin, is becoming increasingly popular with commuters who want to be close to the big smoke without the exhaust fumes.
It is a 15 minute drive to Swords, 20 minutes to Dublin Airport and 30 minutes to the city center with light traffic. Amenities include Roganstown Country Club, Hollywood Lakes Golf Club and Ballyboughal GAA. Woodlawn is for sale for €725,000 with Flynn and Associates Swords: (01) 890 1141.
