DescriptionRarely do properties of such outstanding quality and elegance come to the market. Glencar is a stunning two storey over garden level semi-detached Victorian home extending to 305 sq.m. (3,282 sq. ft.) approx. on exceptional private landscaped gardens of approx. 0.3 acres with a charming 2 bedroom Mews/Coach house to the rear. The main house has an exceptional interior of elegant proportions with rooms rich in original Victorian period detail including high ceilings fireplaces cornicing and tall sash windows. Glencar has been restored refurbished and extended under the supervision of Brian Donovan architect, combining effortlessly the original period with modern classical architecture. The kitchen/dining room extension at garden level is at the heart of the house linking the home to the private landscaped gardens. This is a great party house with formal and informal reception rooms flooded with natural light perfect for entertaining and for everyday living.
The charming 2-bedroom coach house 86sq.m. (926 sq.ft.) approx. is a real bonus and offers great versatility of potential use including extra accommodation/granny flat/home office. Refurbished in recent times but retaining the original stone façade and opening onto a stunning patio garden, the accommodation is bright and airy with kitchen, living room, bathroom and two good sized bedrooms. The setting is private behind an attractive stone wall and not overlooked by the main house. The gardens of Glencar are really special enjoying real seclusion backing on to the playing fields of the VEC. Designed with ease of maintenance in mind they are a real oasis of peace with a large patio perfect for family barbeques, with large lawns with space to kick a ball. To the front the house is well set back from Templeogue Road with generous off street parking.
