DescriptionSherry FitzGerald are delighted to bring 'Aras Mhuire' to the open market, this charming red brick family home is set on beautiful private grounds and only minutes' drive away from the villages of Clonee, Lucan and Castleknock. Built in 1988 by the current owners it has been lovingly maintained and upgraded throughout the years, creating a wonderful family home.
The property is set on circa 1 acre of grounds, the majority of which is beautifully landscaped mature gardens. The property is surrounded by herbaceous borders and bedding while a separate work shop is located to the right of the site.
Wrought iron electric gates set into brick piers welcome you to the sweeping drive and bring you to the house, which is close to all amenities, and yet is surrounded by lush and rolling countryside. In all Aras Mhuire makes an ideal family home, whether you are working in Dublin or its surrounds.
The current owners carefully planned their home and the result is a spacious family home with large interconnecting rooms with great views of the gardens and surrounding countryside. The building began in 1985, and such was the owner's attention to detail, and focus on recreating a truly comfortable family home. The results are stunning.
Laid out over two floors, the house has a wonderful flow. As you enter you cannot but be impressed by the large entrance hall, just off this is the main living room with a beautiful marble fireplace. The dining room is located to the rear of the house overlooking the rear gardens and it can also be accessed from the sunroom through double doors. There is a smaller family room to the front of the property with a feature solid fuel stove, an arch leads to the kitchen/breakfast room. This also opens out into the sunroom which was a later addition to the property. There is a large utility room off the kitchen with a downstairs wc and door leading to the double garage as well as a door to the rear garden. The sunroom has panoramic views of the gardens and double doors give direct access to the patio area and garden.

Upstairs there are 4 large double bedrooms (main en-suite) all with fitted wardrobes and views of the countryside. There is also a large family bathroom with corner bath and separate shower.
