Small, one-off development sites, particularly those with planning permission already in place, are difficult to come by and this one in north Co Dublin should appeal to those brave enough to create their own grand design and builders keen to break ground on a small project to keep things ticking over.

Gallagher Quigley Estate Agents in Clontarf in Dublin 3 is offering such an opportunity for sale in the guise of a prime site in central Malahide. Spanning almost a third of an acre, the site at Casuarinas on Grove Road includes an existing bungalow with full planning permission for the construction of a two-storey, modern residence extending to about 322 square metres (planning ref: F20A/0172).

Contemporary in style and design, the exterior detail finishes will include zinc roofing, nap plaster finish and blue/black slate cladding.

Designed to maximise the benefits of its south-westerly orientation, the interior will provide a-ground floor entrance hall with feature double-height window, double aspect open plan living/dining/kitchen, home office, TV/family room, guest en suite bedroom, utility room and garage accessible from the house.

Upstairs, a gallery style landing leads to the master bedroom suite with a balcony, two further bedrooms, one en suite, a laundry room and family bathroom. The mature site is adjacent to schools and within walking distance of Malahide village and train station.

The agent is guiding €1.75 million. For more information, contact Gallagher Quigley at 01-8183000.
