DescriptionThis hidden gem is tucked away on a glorious secluded site at the end of a quiet cul de sac. Very well-presented throughout, this light-filled comfortable detached split level bungalow will appeal as a family home; or perhaps to who need ample study space; or to someone down-sizing from a larger home. It has distinctive beautiful small gardens with some rare plants.
The welcoming hallway leads to a spacious lounge with windows to the side and front. Double doors from the lounge lead to a comfortable living room, from which sliding doors open to a large dining room. The dining room has a high vaulted ceiling, wonderful natural light and views over the garden. A large sliding door opens from the dining room to a delightful terrace - this is a sun trap, perfect for al fresco dining. There are two good double bedrooms and one single bedroom at hall level. An en-suite and a family bathroom complete the accommodation at this level.
A curved staircase leads down to the garden level where there is a very large room at present used as a study and library. With a sofa-bed it is also be used as a spare bedroom. In the past it has been used as a playroom. French doors lead onto the back garden. There is also a large store room and W.C. with wash hand basin. Double doors lead to the carport. There is very large additional storage space with a low ceiling (approx. 4ft) off the staircase
The location could not be better. Grove Lawn, off Grove Avenue, is a quiet cul de sac. It is convenient to both Blackrock & Stillorgan villages with shopping centres, a range of specialty shops and restaurants. It is within walking distance of the DART railway and quality bus services on main roads to the city centre. It is 10 minutes to the M50 ring road. It is close to UCD; some of Dublin's finest schools such as Blackrock College, St Andrews College, Sion Hill and Carysfort National School are within easy reach. This is an elegant family home in an unrivalled location - an opportunity not to be missed.
