Caherdaniel is a magnificent double-fronted detached home combining Edwardian and Victorian style with 21st century craftsmanship. Built by Burns Construction and with a floor area of over 5090 sq ft/470 sq m it is laid out over three levels. The interior is really special, consisting of gracious reception rooms, bedrooms of elegant proportions and at the heart of the house, a contemporary kitchen/family room. Naturally, the rear garden faces south, taking full advantage of the sun. Caherdaniel is named after the beautiful Kerry village of Cathair Dónall, the birthplace of Daniel O’Connell, the 19th century Irish leader. A large red brick villa built on a granite stone plinth, it sits elegantly among the other original period homes on Temple Road.
A splendid Ballylusk Wicklow gravel drive leads to the front of the building, with the ground-floor hall porch door sitting elegantly on a raised level that is accessed by granite steps. Granite steps also lead directly to the lower ground floor from the front. Behind timber side gates access is provided to the rear of the house and there is a lower ground floor entrance at the patio garden. At the back of the property, there is a concealed parking area and the front of Caherdaniel also has ample parking, so it is ideal for the car enthusiast. Attention to detail is evident throughout. The exterior house finishes consist of granite copings, granite bands and window sills and the red brick elevations are laid in weather struck pointing. Other features include natural roof slates and hand-cut timber eaves. The elegant pulley-sash windows have been handcrafted in timber. Meanwhile, the cut-stone details at the porch set the standard of workmanship inside the home.
