255 Swords Road, Santry, Dublin 9 Asking price: €580k Agent: Property Team Lappin Estates (01) 882 5730
Swords Road has changed beyond recognition since the early years of the last century when it was an agricultural area on the northern outskirts of Dublin. Gone are the fields and farms of yesteryear, long since replaced by residential homes that have turned the region into a vibrant urban hub.
Sandwiched between Santry and Whitehall, this patch of countryside changed utterly in the 1950s when schemes of semi-detached houses sprang up to accommodate the area’s growing population. These newly built homes typically came with garages to accommodate the emerging trend of family cars, while the region’s agricultural roots were echoed by long back gardens where residents could grow their own fruit and veg.
The changes continue. At No255, cabbage patches and potato drills have been replaced with a patio and pathways lined with mature trees, shrubs and potted plants as the garden has been transformed into a haven for relaxation. Home-grown spuds may no longer be on the menu, but there’s a pizza parlour and Chinese takeaway a few doors away, while the Omni Park shopping centre is within easy walking distance.
