DescriptionDNG has the great pleasure of presenting Gilspear to the market. This exceptional detached home has in very recent times undergone a wonderful refurbishment and the attention to detail is sure to impress.
The original 1950's 5-bedroom dormer bungalow was very dated but is now a light filled energy efficient home with an impressive B3 energy rating. The revised 4 bedroom layout boasts large open plan reception rooms, a high spec kitchen, a main bedroom suite with two walk in closets and a stunning en-suite, 3 additional bedrooms and two bathrooms that really have the wow factor so many buyers are looking for.
The living accommodation is complemented with a detached annex of approx. 51 Sq M that is currently in use as office space. This could easily be transformed into a granny flat, games room or den depending on the family requirements. A further 55 Sq M of space provides a double car garage and a fully equipped laundry room where all the central heating components are safely housed.
The gardens were also transformed during the renovation by a professional design team that had low maintenance in mind. A beautiful sandstone patio area was positioned off the living room to take full advantage of the sunny orientation and is an ideal entertaining space for all to enjoy. The lawns are flat and easily kept and a large gravel area was created as a backdrop from the living space with a winding path leading you to the tennis court at the bottom of the garden. The main large planting is to the borders and they provide a wonderful sense of privacy while adding colour all year round.
In the garden there is a new log cabin of approx. 20 Sq M with electricity, heating & connection to Wi-Fi. This space is an ideal retreat area that enjoys views of the landscaped grounds. It is currently in use as a gym. The very private and tranquil gardens enjoy views of the Sugarloaf and have a wonderful selection of mature trees that include a Monkey Puzzle, a very mature Acer and a magnificent specimen Tulip tree to name but a few.
The property is positioned moments from the village of Kilmacanogue in what feels like a very rural setting but in reality, is under a minute from the N11 and just 35 minutes to Dublin City Centre. The village has a weekly farmers market, a petrol station with convenience store, a primary school and both Dublin Bus and Bus Eireann bus routes operate from here. Also nearby is the renowned Avoca Fern House cafe and shop.
Personal inspection is a must to appreciate just how convenient this wonderful setting is and to enjoy the flexible accommodation.
