DescriptionThis is a four-bedroom detached bungalow, in a well-regarded residential enclave, that enjoys an unparalleled sense of seclusion both inside and outside. No 13 has the much sought after south facing rear garden and one of the longest too at 32 m (105 ft.) approx.
Flemingstown Park is a quiet, friendly cul de sac just off the Lower Churchtown Road, originally comprising detached bungalows, some dating from the 1930’s but most built in the early 1960’s – No. 13 being one of the latter. This dearly loved home has been in the same family since it was built and will have a broad appeal – to those seeking a more manageable single storey home or indeed to a growing family. The potential to extend/remodel is obvious and so many opportunities exist: to the side into the detached garage area, back towards the rear garden or indeed upwards to develop the attic space (subject to Planning Permission), so this undoubtedly could be the forever home.
A stroll around Flemingstown Park will inspire confidence in the area with a superb selection of high-end renovation projects having been carried out in recent times resulting in a pleasant variety of contemporary homes. There is an enviable range of facilities at hand with excellent local shopping at Churchtown, and the property being minutes from Dundrum Town Centre and close to Rathgar, Milltown and Rathfarnham. The by-pass roads make the M50 highly accessible while a brief walk to the LUAS makes light work of the short commute to the city centre and beyond. Leisure facilities abound with the Airfield Estate, the parklands of Orwell, Dartry and Bushy at hand, not forgetting two of Dublin’s most prestigious golf clubs – Milltown and The Castle. There is a comprehensive selection of well-established schools nearby, and UCD Belfield is only a short cycle away.

The walled front garden offers off street parking and access to the Garage. It is well shielded from the passing eye with perimeter hedging and mature trees and shrubs with a lawn area and central flower bed. There are two gated pedestrian side entrances leading to the rear garden.
Undoubtedly one of the finest features of this property is the secluded south facing rear garden; 32m long x 13.3m wide - a true sanctuary and a garden to be enjoyed by all. There is a sheltered sun-drenched patio area with two steps up to main garden which is bordered by well stocked flower beds with a wonderful selection of trees, shrubs, ferns, herbaceous and perennial planting. This informal planting delivers seasonal pleasures, so a walk around this garden is a must to see the diversity of flora: rhododendrons, camellias, acers, silver birch - to mention a few. It is like taking a journey - full of surprises with a magnificent spring flowering cherry tree overhanging the tranquil pond and ornamental waterfall (not operational). This is a great hide and seek garden which will delight the children too. At the end of the garden there is a large space to conceal a shed as well as a compost area. All in all this is truly a gardener’s delight with a lean-to glass house adjoining the garage and a fruit bearing vine completing the picture.
