DescriptionSet in a mature and much sought after residential development, this comfortable family home enjoys an excellent location five minutes’ drive from Greystones town centre and just a short walk from a modern neighbourhood shopping centre.
Presented in good condition, existing accommodation includes a fitted kitchen, an exceptionally large open-plan lounge and dining room with an open fire place, a tv room/study and entrance hall. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms – one ensuite, along with a family bathroom, walk-in hot press and a spacious landing with access to the attic.
For those with an eye to potential, the good news is that it offers tremendous scope to extend, refurbish and/or build on thanks to a range of possibilities. These include, reconfiguring the interior to create a large kitchen/diner, extending upwards into the attic or building on a rear extension into that large back garden. While subject to planning regulation, many neighbouring homeowners have already completed precisely such enhancements to their properties.
Outside there’s a large patio area at the far end of the back garden which is an ideal suntrap. The property is set on a large (0.08 acres) plot, one of the largest in Rathdown Park. The spacious rear garden (159 sq. m) encompasses spacious barbecue areas and a garden shed. For families, there’s ample space for swings, a slide and a trampoline, pets, outdoor entertainment or those who simply want to potter about in a secluded garden.
To the front, the property has an ample driveway providing parking for two cars.
The property faces on to a large green amenity space from which a handy short-cut leads to the national schools on Rathdown Road, Church Road and Trafalgar Road, to the seafront, the DART Station and the main shopping area. It is also ideally placed to enjoy the many outstanding leisure and sporting amenities the town has to offer, including the marina, harbour and the Greystones end of the scenic cliff walk to Bray.
Built circa 1973, Rathdown Park is a quiet, well-established and well-maintained estate featuring mature trees and multiple spacious green amenity areas. All of these are maintained to a high standard by an active residents’ association, which also organises an annual Family Fun and Sports Day for the residents.
Positioned in a much sought-after “horseshoe” with no through traffic, the property is nevertheless just a short stroll from a modern neighbourhood shopping centre that includes a large supermarket, shops and services, including a pharmacy, and GP and dental surgeries, all within five minutes’ walking distance.
A great place to raise a family, Rathdown Park is within walking distance of an excellent choice of schools, including St. Kevin’s, St. Patrick’s and St. Brigid’s National Schools mentioned above and the nearby Greystones Educate Together National School and Gaelscoil na gCloch Liath, all of which are within ten minutes’ walk from the property, as are Temple Carrig Secondary School and St. David’s Holy Faith Secondary School. There’s also a good choice of pre-school and Montessori schools.
