DescriptionSavills is delighted to present Glaskenny House to the market, an attractive detached country home located in a rural position close to Enniskerry village.
The property stands on a fantastic mature plot to include a large lawned garden and a further paddock totalling c 6.5 acres.
The entrance is at the front and into a smart porch which leads to the main hallway. The living space is very special and includes a cosy living room with a cassette fire and an impressive stone surround. This room has double doors leading to the arced sitting room which opens through to the real show piece of the house, the kitchen / dining room. While the pictures of this look good, this space really has to be viewed to fully appreciate its impressive high level part vaulted ceiling and incredible countryside views. The kitchen has a large feature window to the far end as well as sky lights, flooding the room with light. There are attractive, solid wood, cream painted country style units with a large island and space for stools. The work surfaces are a combination of rustic marble and solid wood and suit the house and location very well. There is a boot room and WC to the rear of the kitchen as well as a useful utility room with space and plumbing for appliances.
The entrance hall has stairs rising to the first floor as well as access to the ground floor bedrooms and the family bathroom. There is a large dual aspect double bedroom to the far end with plenty of built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms as well as a useful study with built-in desk, which could be used as an additional single bedroom if required.
The first floor landing is a nice size and has space for a study area or sitting room area to the rear. The master bedroom is located on this level and has a walk in wardrobe as well as an additional en suite shower room. Finally, the last of the bedrooms is located at the other end of the first floor and has a large walk in wardrobe with future en suite potential if required.
The grounds at Glaskenny House are superb and include large mature gardens as well as an additional 5.7 acre paddock, ideal for keeping horses. There are smart stone pillars to the front and a sweeping driveway leading down to the house with plenty of pebbled parking space to the front and the side of the property. The majority of the gardens are lawned with mature shrub borders while there is a smart paved patio seating area wrapping round the sides and rear of the house, taking in the amazing views. The paddock is attached to the land and has the option to be sold together with the house and gardens or divided off if required.
The property enjoys a wonderful rural location in County Wicklow with panoramic countryside views. Enniskerry village is located 3km / 5 minute drive away with a range of shops and amenities as well as bus services to Dublin and beyond. Dublin city centre is under 25km away.
