This is a distinctive and unique detached four/five bedroom residence of 198 sq. m. (including integral Garage). It is well situated on a large corner site with potential to extend into the substantial gardens that surrounds the house on three sides (subject to P.P.). Bordering Rathfarnham, Terenure and Templeogue it is conveniently located -just a few steps from the rear entrance of Bushy Park with its leisurely walks along the River Dodder and through the park to its many amenities.
Designed and built as a bungalow by its Architect owner in 1963 and a few years later extended into the attic as originally intended - to meet a growing familyâ€™s needs, this much-loved home is now ready for the next generation. A modern and minimalist house that has more than stood the test of time, it has many bespoke design features with a pared-back sense of style. The layout was ahead of its time, reflecting a desire for a more informal style of living than was the norm in the 1960â€™s, with an open plan Living/Dining area being the axis on which the whole house revolves. Explicitly designed to take advantage of its orientation, coupled with its large picture windows, this is a light filled home which enjoys an array of outdoor views onto the leafy gardens.
A house that lends itself to being imaginatively updated this is, as one would expect of an Architectâ€™s home, solidly built, of cavity wall construction and will appeal to those looking for a refreshingly distinctive property with its cedar cladding, textured, exposed brick/block and timber sheeted walls; it offers endless opportunities to create a wonderful family home in a great location.
