Glenfield is a charming aesthetically pleasing part slate clad, and part cut granite stone detached Georgian residence of stature located in a peaceful and scenic setting accessed opposite the grounds of St. Gerard's School. This generously proportioned home boasts a gracious and inviting atmosphere, ideal for raising a family in a secure environment on private landscaped grounds that extend to approximately 3 acres. The well-maintained bright and airy interior beautifully retains the period features of the Georgian era, offering a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life that also boasts informal lawned gardens in a Sylvan setting with a sunny south facing backdrop of The Sugarloaf. On entering the property, it is immediately obvious that this quality family home exudes charm and character as well as enjoying light filled free flowing accommodation from the sunny rear orientation. It is ideal for family living and entertaining alike and has been designed that the main reception rooms overlook and open into the sunny south facing gardens. Upstairs, off the spacious landing there are five excellent double bedrooms, a single and a family bathroom. The main bedroom suite is accessed through a generous bedroom/study and the bedroom enjoys a walk-in wardrobe leading through to an ensuite bathroom. The gardens to the property surround the property beautifully and are a major feature of this wonderful home. To the front a gravelled driveway leads to the front of the property and accesses the workshop, outhouses, and gym area. There is off-street parking for many cars and this house provides ease of access to every local amenity, many tranquil scenic forest walks, and excellent transport links. The gardens and setting of this spacious beautifully proportioned family home will be of major interest to those trying to get a foothold in the Ballyman/Bray area. This is an ideal location in an urban, yet rural setting surrounded by mature trees and hedging and within easy reach of local shopping facilities in Shankill Village, the DART station and library as well as major shopping centres in Bray and Cornelscourt, The Park Carrickmines and Dundrum Shopping Centre all easily accessible off the M50. The LUAS at Cherrywood allows frequent access to and from the city centre. The M50 makes commuting to the city centre, the airport and nationwide very simple. Local schools include Rathmichael National School, St. Anne's, John Scottus, and St. Gerard's opposite. Churches of both dominations are within easy reach as are walks on Bray seafront or the eastern foothills of the Wicklow and Dublin Mountains. There is a selection of golf, rugby and football clubs close by, as well as horse riding. The four yacht clubs and extensive marina at Dun Laoghaire Harbour is just a short distance away and will appeal to the marine and sailing enthusiasts.
