In June 1925 No. 3 Ard Lorcain Villas was advertised as a new home, one of a small number of homes to be sold as a garden village within the confines of Stillorgan. It was to appeal to the middle classes as ‘a healthier lifestyle’ away from the city. Of course times have moved on and Stillorgan is now a thriving suburb easily accessed from the City Centre with the convenience of nearby Luas and bus routes. This home boasts a large garden, something other advertisements at the time mentioned, ideal for extending as have many of the neighbouring homes.
Accommodation is c. 96sqm over two levels, with two reception rooms back to back together with a kitchen at ground floor level. On the first floor are three bedrooms complemented by a bathroom on the return. A converted attic is accessed via a Stira pull-down ladder.
This attractive home is a blank canvas ready to be modernised for the next generation. While it requires upgrading it enjoys an excellent and central location close to all conceivable amenities along with numerous schools, parks and more.
