DescriptionSherry FitzGerald are delighted to bring to the market this turnkey detached 2 bedroom bungalow. It has been completely refurbished, upgraded, beautifully decorated and presents in superb condition ready for its lucky new owners to move straight in. It is exceptionally spacious and notably bright and benefits from lots of southerly and westerly light through an abundance of windows.
Originally built in 2004 this home is enviably located in a quiet cul de sac in the heart of Laurel Lodge within a five minute walk of Coolmine Train Station which will greatly please the commuter for the hassle free commute into City Centre. There is a good choice of Shops and a Medical Centre located within walking distance. This property is in the catchment for Scoil Thomas and Castleknock Community College. No 1A is not overlooked front or rear and benefits from its own private garden to the rear and a driveway with off-street parking for two cars.
Cherry Drive is a lovely quiet residential neighbourhood and at the other end of this cul de sac, there is a large tree lined green with walking pathways and flowering daffodils. Two tennis courts for residents enjoyment is a lovely amenity. A separate large green on approach to this cul de sac makes for a lovely entrance to the small enclave that is Cherry Drive. No 1A is equally suited to a downsizer or young looking for a detached property to call home in this desirable location.
In brief, the accommodation comprises of a generous hallway flooded with natural light. A particularly sizeable reception room, with a bay window and three further windows, maximises southerly and westerly light. A spacious kitchen/breakfast room with an array of fitted units and appliances is situated off the living room. It has ample room to both cook and dine and has access to the hallway. Two double bedrooms overlook the rear garden, one has French doors opening to the garden and the other has its own ensuite. The family bathroom and the ensuite have neutral tiling and skylights.
To the front a gravel topped driveway provides private offstreet parking for two cars and a gated side access leads to the private rear garden. It is fully walled and not overlooked. There is an outside tap and electrical socket. There is potential here to extend or possibly build a sunroom subject to Planning Permission. There may also be potential to convert the attic subject to the relevant planning permission.
Viewing is highly recommended.
