DescriptionAn exceptionally attractive, detached and double fronted residence with bay windows that was constructed circa 1994 in a period style. This property benefits from unrivalled breath-taking panoramic views over Dalkey roof tops, Dublin Bay and across to Howth from the rear with the stunning outlook of Dalkey Quarry evident to the front.
Ardan is a wonderful property positioned in a fantastic setting, just a short stroll from the excellent facilities in Dalkey Town Centre, including its own DART station.
Granite pillars open into a cobblelock driveway with parking for several cars. Steps lead up to the entrance porch and into the reception hall, with a feature window enjoying the stunning views. Either side of the generous hall is a lovely sitting room, with window seats front and back enjoying the views, and a well fitted kitchen/dining room with similar window seats on the other side. Downstairs are the bedrooms, all three a generous size, with the main having an ensuite shower room and a separate dressing room. A quality family bathroom concludes the accommodation at this level. The property has been very well maintained throughout and is in excellent decorative order.
Outside to the rear is a good sized private garden that is completely secluded. It is mainly laid out in lawn bordered by trees and mature shrubbery, with attractively planted flower beds and rockeries. There is a nicely concealed purpose built outhouse/garden store to the rear.
The situation of Ardan will be of major interest to those trying to get a foothold in the highly desirable Dalkey location. Dalkey Town Centre has so much to offer and is literally on the doorstep. There are popular scenic walks over Dalkey and Killiney hills opposite and along the seafront. There is an abundance of local schools, churches, specialist and boutique shops, cafes, pubs and some of the finest restaurants in South County Dublin. There is a wide selection of sporting and recreational facilities close by that include: Cuala GAA/Dalkey United, hockey, tennis, rugby and golf clubs. The four yacht clubs and extensive marina at Dun Laoghaire Harbour will also be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiast. Commuting to and from the city centre is made easy via the bus and DART, and the Aircoach services the airport on the hour at Fitzpatrick's Castle Hotel. The N11 and M50 provide ease of access to the national road networks.
