A unique and rather special opportunity to acquire a charming granite cottage of stunning individual style and character, together with its own West facing private garden located in this ever-popular rural setting on the verge of the city. Finished to a high specification with luxurious interiors and a bespoke fit-out, this stylish home offers endless classical style combined with stunning architectural flourishes and detail throughout. Built in 1900, this home is as charming as can be, with plenty of head-turning features scattered throughout. Granite cottage has been thoughtfully planned and sympathetically restored, extended and remodeled in 2007 to an exceptionally high standard throughout. There is a lovely connection to the surrounding gardens and nature from every room in the house (each room including bathroom offers a door to the garden) Approaching this property, one cannot but be impressed by the feeling of seclusion offered by the mature trees, lush planting and generous driveway to the front. The charming façade is an indication of what is to come as once over the threshold there is an immediate sense of understated sophistication with high ceilings, original features and carefully chosen materials all of which blend seamlessly with an impeccable Farrow and Ball color scheme. Inside, you'll find an elegant and cosy living room with high ceiling, feature window and solid fuel stove, a stunning atrium style hallway with flagstone flooring and access to an internal courtyard as well as a welcoming open fire, a well fitted out traditional kitchen with dual aspect doors (one to an extremely pretty courtyard ideal for entertaining and the other to a paved breakfast patio), downstairs there are two good sized bedrooms and bathroom whilst upstairs there is a converted attic. This carefully maintained and upgraded the property with great taste, quality and care over the years resulting in a “turn key” opportunity for its next owner. With only a limited number of this type of cottage in the area, this really is a rare opportunity to acquire a very quaint cottage so close to the city. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate what is on offer. Granite Cottage is located on a quiet rural setting easily accessed via the Enniskerry Road, ideally located in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains. Kilternan has plenty to offer to include leisure attractions nearby including local walking trials, Kilternan Country market, Carrickmines Tennis Club and golf courses. Stepaside village itself provides excellent amenities, including local convenience shops, restaurants and pubs. The 44-bus route provides access to the city centre via Stepaside, Sandyford and Dundrum along with the 63/63a bus route to Dun Laoghaire which provides a fast link to the Carrickmines Luas Station. Viewing is a must to fully appreciate this family home in its scenic rural setting, which is within minutes of numerous amenities, including the Carrickmines Retail Park, and direct access to the M50 motorway.
