DescriptionSherry FitzGerald are delighted to bring “Dunbrody” to the market, a truly charming bay fronted 1930's home which has been sympathetically and sensitively extended and refurbished over the years. Set back off Torquay Road enjoying a mature and exceptionally private site of approx. 0.3 acres with westerly orientation. The property enjoys well-appointed internal layout which is further enhanced by glass panelled doors, picture windows and the use of solid panelling to the walls creates a cosy intimate homely ambience. A delightful open porch with glazed roof and traditional wooden balustrade opens to the inviting hallway with tiled floor and panelled walls. Light streams in from the French doors at the back of the house and is reflected throughout with the use of glass panelled doors and large picture windows. The reception rooms enjoy views out over the gardens and the kitchen, complete with AGA, is a bright and inviting family space in cool tones of blue and white. A utility room is located off the kitchen.
Dunbrody extends to approximately 2,200 sq.ft (204.38 sq.m) and has been lovingly cared for by the present owners whereby renovation works were carried out in 2012 to include new windows, a new heating system, attractive tiled flooring in the hallway, a newly fitted fireplace with stove inset in the family room creating a warm ambience coupled with wooden panelled walls in the hallway which continue to the first floor. Rising upstairs the first floor enjoys four spacious double bedrooms and a well-appointed bathroom complete with bath and separate shower. The walls on the landing are panelled in keeping with the hallway downstairs and the overall pristine nature of this very fine home. The garage to the side holds potential to further extend should one desire and the site itself is undoubtedly a favourable feature providing ample potential to further extend (subject to PP).
The location is second to none, only a short stroll from the charming and bustling village of Foxrock with its cafes, boutiques and restaurants and indeed within walking distance to The Leopardstown Inn and a selection of shops in Leopardstown. There are excellent transport links close by at the M50, LUAS stop at Sandyford & Carrickmines and N11 which offers ease of access to the city centre and the popular QBC. For sports enthusiasts you have Carrickmines Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, Westwood fitness centre, Foxrock and Carrickmines Golf Clubs and Leopardstown Race course. Other amenities include shops, boutiques and restaurants. Extensive shopping facilities are nearby at Cornelscourt, Stillorgan, Blackrock, Dundrum and Carrickmines Retail Park. There is a wide selection of National and Secondary schools close by and the newly opened Nord Anglia International school is located moments away in Leopardstown. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate such a beautiful home with the gardens to match.
The grounds which extend to 0.3 acres approximately are incredibly private whereby a gravelled driveway provides parking for several cars. Neatly laid cobble stones punctuate the driveway providing structure and delineates the garden zones. Wide side garden in lawn with mature trees and shrubs providing total privacy and creating a sun-drenched oasis enjoying the perfect westerly orientation. The garden is bordered with mature tress & colourful planting with a paved patio area for daylong sunshine with direct access from the hall and the kitchen/breakfast room downstairs. There is pedestrian acces via wooden gate to Silver Park from the rear garden. Garage attached to the house & Barna hut.
