DescriptionLarge detached five bedroom family homes in Griffith Downs rarely come to market so it gives Gallagher Quigley great pleasure to present 'Ardenno'. In addition, the extra large rear garden that complements the house is a relatively unique feature making this opportunity even more rare and perhaps once in a lifetime. As the saying goes "one careful owner", this impeccably maintained property has been occupied by the same family since its construction (c.1985) and is now ready for its next chapter and new owner to take up residence.
The generous and well-appointed living accommodation extends to c.2137 sqft/198.5 sqm overall. A bright and inviting entrance hall welcomes you on arrival and is the link between two interconnecting formal reception rooms on one side; ideal for celebrating special family occasions and entertaining with a more relaxed casual family room to the other side. Both front facing reception rooms feature ornate marble fireplaces. A sizeable family kitchen includes an L-shaped wall of custom-made fitted units which are complemented by a granite counter. Adjoining the kitchen is a particularly spacious utility room with fitted units and guest toilet off. There is access to the garden from the utility room for added convenience. A large conservatory which interconnects with the formal rear diningroom overlooks the garden and opens out to a secluded garden patio. Upstairs, all five bedrooms have generous dimensions and fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom includes a dressing area and ensuite shower room. A family bathroom is located off the landing.
Outside, the rear garden enjoys discreet seclusion and peaceful tranquility. Attractively lanscaped and well stocked with specimen plants, shrubs and mature trees to complement the manicured lawn and patios which are strategically positioned to follow the rise and fall of the sun. A neat well-tended front garden provides ample parking and a garage.
