Existing Entrance

prep says: No. 23 Mayfield Road is a truly outstanding semi-detached 4/5 bedroom Edwardian residence dating c 1902. Situated on this highly regarded and much sought after residential road in the heart of Terenure it boasts a large, sunny, south-westerly rear garden.

Existing Rear View single storey acc. N

prep says: REMOVE THESE

We propose to take full advantage of the properties orientation and site by creating a 'living hub' in the location of the existing single story accomodation located to the rear. Doing this would open up the property and fill it with light creating a modern up to date home for a family.

Existing Bedroom


notes prep says: BREAK THROUGH HERE to create a master suite

Living hub

BREAK THROUGH HERE to create a new 'living hub' incorporating a new kitchen, dining and living area. prep says:

At present there are two sitting rooms and a kitchen which don't engage with the garden (or each other) and are hidden by the single storey accomodation to the rear. We propose to reorganise the internal layout to take advantage of the wonderful features this property has to offer.

Proposed Kitchen/Living area

By opening through the current small rear Sitting Room we propose creating a new Hall to bring you directly out to a new light ď€ lled Living/Dining/ Kitchen area. This new family zone opens out to the garden, and the sun. Utility room, Cloakroom, and guest W/C are formed in the central, dark areas of the plan.



Proposed Master Bedroom

The existing Master Bedroom is located on the North face to the front of the building. There is an opportunity to extend at ď€ rst oor level to the rear which would provide a new spacious Master Bedroom Suite complete with Shower Room and a Dressing room. The Master Bedroom would enoy views over the Garden.




Proposed Rear View

At present they are a number of single storey extensions located to the rear of the property that are quite random but occupy a prime position. We propose to create a new harmonised Living/Kitchen accomodation that takes full advantage of the south facing rear garden.

Planning: The existing extensions to the rear should be removed. The proposals descibed will then qualify as Exempted Development, as they are located to the rear of the property and are within the permissable total area of 40 sq.m (28 sq.m at Ground Floor and 12 sq.m at First Floor). All these works can proceed immediately. The only exception is that of the Phase 2 works, the 12 sq.m.bedroom extension is less than 2 metres from the property boundary,and is not therefore exempt . This however will be a straighforward application with every chance of success. As regards parking, it is physically possible to form 2 off -street parking spaces to the side of the property. This will require a Planning Application to form a new vehicular entrance.
