DNG has the great pleasure of presenting Greenwood. No.5 Ballybride Manor to the market for the first time since its construction in 1997. This gorgeous family home is nestled amongst manicured gardens of just under one acre that cannot fail to impress. House and gardens combine to make this property rather special and unique within the marketplace. After purchasing the site directly from the developer of Ballybride Manor, the owners set about designing the layout and delightful features of this extraordinary property. Over an 18-month period they planned every detail with their architect, and they have thoroughly enjoyed the fruits of their labour for almost 3 decades with the vision they had for this beautiful home which has certainly stood the test of time. The beautifully appointed accommodation of approx. 498 SQ M with 2.87m high ceilings comprises a grand reception hall with an elegant staircase winding its way to the gallery landing above. Wide French oak wooden floors flow throughout the ground floor. Off the reception hall to the left-hand side, you have the formal sitting room with a gorgeous light filled triple aspect overlooking the front, side and back gardens. This most impressive reception room leads out onto a veranda with decking that sweeps across to the kitchen dining area and creates an outdoor entertaining space that is usable all year round. To the right of the reception hall is the family cinema/TV room that boasts a bay window enjoying views of the front garden, A inset gas fired acts as a focal point if you can draw your eyes away from the projector screen. A second hall leads from this reception to the laundry and kitchen. The kitchen which was remodelled in c.2020 features an abundance of cabinets, a selection of modern integrated appliances, lots of stone counter space for food preparation, an instant hot water tap and a peninsula for informal dining. Off the kitchen is a reading snug that overlooks a sunken dining space, the snug is a wonderful space to catch up on current affairs or finish that book you started what seems like an age ago. The dining room which boasts lovely views of the garden and sliding patio doors to the enclosed courtyard features a stone chimney with a solid fuel stove that draws the eye up to the double height vaulted ceiling above that adds further drama to this wonderful reception room. A spiral staircase leads you up to the 1st floor and gallery landing area that doubles as the home office. Off the kitchen is a hallway leading to a rear porch that brings you out to the car port and double garage, off the hallway is a laundry room with further cabinets, the hotpress and a sink. The hallway also brings you to the family cinema/TV room to the front of the house. The hallway also has two open storage areas that are perfect for keeping day to day items such as golf clubs, riding boots and other sporting equipment, One of the spaces currently houses a 150 bottle wine refrigerator. On the first-floor set around an impressive gallery landing you have the bedroom accommodation, all of which are very spacious double rooms. Bedroom 1 is more akin to a hotel suite enjoying a triple aspect and boasting a marble fireplace and bay window with window seat, a large walk-in wardrobe and generous en-suite shower room. Bedroom two overlooks the front garden and has fitted wardrobes. Bedroom 3 also overlooks the front garden and boasts a bay window, fitted wardrobes and a modern en-suite shower room. Bedroom 4 overlooks the rear garden, it has fitted wardrobes and a door to the family bathroom. The family bathroom is jack and jill to the hall and bedroom 4, it features a separate bath and shower. The first floor also boasts another lounge room that could be used as an occasional bedroom or home office if the preference is for a more private study area. The gallery landing above the dining area also doubles as a home office for the current owners. On the second floor there is a 5th double bedroom, a shower room off the large landing and a Yoga/Pilates room that could also be used as a walk-in wardrobe for bedroom 5 if your family requirements dictated. The gardens of Greenwood have been meticulously maintained for almost 3 decades and will certainly appeal to families of all ages. Electric gates open onto a gravel drive that sweeps across the front of the house to the car port and double garage. The car port is perfect for Irish weather, and it provides access to the kitchen and the garage. The double garage of approx. 36 Sq M will comfortably accommodate 2 cars or a ride-on lawn mower depending on your preference. Behind the garage is a superb private courtyard for outdoor dining and BBQing. The gates to the courtyard were reclaimed and date back to c.1860, originally from a house on Orwell Road in Rathgar. Off the Kitchen and sitting room is a stunning veranda with a large deck that can be used all year round. Mature trees and shrubs provide colour and privacy no matter the season. A large lawn with a play area is sure to appeal to the younger family members. As you stroll through the grounds you can appreciate all of the wonderful design features that were incorporated into the house and gardens to make this house a very, very special home!
