DescriptionLovingly cared for, upgraded and extended, this is a wonderful family home set against an enviable backdrop of a private, 165ft south facing rear garden. Regarded as one of the premium addresses in South County Dublin, this has long been a road that many have aspired to live on, where residents enjoy great tranquility yet superb ease of access to a wide variety of amenities both social and essential.
Nicely set back from the road with ample off-street parking, a great sense of light strikes you as soon as you walk through to the entrance hall. On the ground floor, the generously appointed accommodation comprises a family room to the front and a dual aspect drawing room. To the rear of the house at this level, there is a superbly extended open plan living / kitchen / dining with floor to ceiling glazed windows coupled with a domed ceiling give this area a great feel of space and light and is a super heart of the home. Off one side of the kitchen there is an extensively fitted out pantry which in turn leads out to the garden and off the other side, there is a lobby with a wet room and it gives access through to the garage. On the first floor, there are four generously appointed bedrooms, the principle of which has a dressing room and shower en-suite. The attic has had considerable work carried out on it. It is now fully floored with three Velux windows. Residents of neighbouring houses on this road have created impressive en-suite bedrooms at this level, and the space on the lading allows for the addition of a proper stair well.
The property is very conveniently located between Dalkey and Dun Laoghaire where both social and essential amenities are in abundance. There are all the facilities one would expect from the delightful villages of Dalkey and Glasthule, including an excellent choice of shops, specialist delicatessens and restaurants, while Dun Laoghaire town centre itself, has everything you need for everyday living. There is a wide selection of sporting and recreational amenities including golf clubs, tennis clubs (Glenageary Tennis Club is just up the road), beautiful walks over and around Dalkey and Killiney Hills as well as the four yacht clubs and an extensive marina at Dun Laoghaire Harbour which will be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiast. Public transport links to the city centre are easily accessible with the DART station at Glenageary and the No.7 bus stop both close by, while the Aircoach provides direct access to Dublin Airport. There are also many highly regarded schools in the area including Rathdown School, St Joseph of Cluny and CBC Monkstown, along with The Harold School in Glasthule, regarded as one of the top primary schools in south County Dublin.
To the front of the house there is ample cobble locked off street parking a large lawn and the borders of the property are lined with Beech hedging. To the rear of the house there is an enviable 165ft south facing garden. The open plan kitchen/living dining leads out to a large decked area which in turn steps down to the lawn, bordered by a profusion of mature plants, trees and shrubs. The size of the garden affords the discerning purchaser a great opportunity to extend further (subject to planning permission) whilst still retaining a great space for outdoor entertaining and a place for children to play in.
