12 Foster's Avenue is a bright welcoming light filled open plan flexible bungalow with a very large secluded south facing garden. It has been lovingly maintained over the years by its current owners. It is located in one of South Dublin's premier locations in Mount Merrion, with convenient access to both the city centre via the quality bus corridor, the airport via the blue bus stop which is only 2 minutes walking distance and the M50 via the Dundrum exit. For many, number 12's central location to Dublin’s prestigious South Dublin’s schools and location directly opposite UCD provides a major bonus. Mount Merrion itself is one of South Dublin's long established localities. It is a community orientated quiet residential area with its own local shops and cafes.

No.12's open plan flexible living design allows for clever separation into kitchen, dining and living room with double doors leading from one room to the other. The original light filled conservatory off the living room overlooking the very large South oriented garden has been used as a tv room, a play room and a dining room by its current owners over the years. The living room with its open fireplace can be a cosy secluded winter room or opened up to the rest of the house for all year round entertainment. An almost hidden clever mezzanine overlooks the dining area, it’s access is via a solid wooden stairs akin to a ships stairs from the kitchen. This has been used as a teenage bedroom and an office by the current owners.  It also gives easy access to the very large floored attic storage space.

Number 12 hosts three bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of the bathrooms have full size iron baths. The third has a power Mira shower. The utility room off the kitchen includes an A-rated Zanussi washing machine and an A-rated Zanussi dryer. The garage which runs from the front of the house via an internal corridor to a small workroom at the back gives plenty of storage and workspace. The A-rated gas boiler is situated in the back workroom. No. 12 has the added benefit of having been fitted with the latest PhoneWatch security system which can be easily controlled via the PhoneWatch smart app.

Outside there is a very large rear garden, it’s high trees, hedging and meandering path provide the perfect tranquil green oasis. The patio area just opening from the dining room enjoys the ideal sun trap for summer al fresco dining. To the front the large gravel area provides easy off street parking for up to three cars. No.12's uniqueness has brought many years of fun and happiness to the current owners.
