DescriptionSet amid magnificent gardens and grounds, this exceptional traditional family home offers the very best of both worlds - Dublin City and airport convenience with an unrivalled countryside atmosphere.
Built in 1979 to an exceptionally high standard in terms of design, layout and its overall level of finish. This classic property is very well maintained as a spacious family home which is standing upon 1.41 hectares / 3.5 acres of beautifully manicured gardens, grounds and two paddocks. The property is complimented by uninterrupted dual road frontage (195m) to two roads and superb views over the surrounding countryside and farmland of Harlockstown House. Accessed from a quite roadside via secure electric gates, this imposing property embraces you the minute you arrive with its treelined avenue to a breath taking Virginia creeper clad family home.
There is exceptional character, charm and grace attached to this 255 sq. m. well designed and beautifully maintained family home, including a reception hall, three well-appointed receptions rooms, a bright and spacious kitchen and dining/breakfast area complete with a utility room and a downstairs guest w.c
Upstairs offers a very spacious master bedroom with an adjoining en suite and walk-in wardrobe. In addition to three further double bedrooms (one en suite), family bathroom and an architect designed study/home office which could serve also as bedroom five if required.
An idyllic and tranquil setting with spectacular gardens and grounds which hosts an abundance of mature trees shrubs and flowers all of which have been carefully tended to over the years.
There is a full size tarmac tennis court, a beautiful tree lined riverwalk, a complete detached double garage, two patio areas and two grazing paddocks. It enjoys complete privacy with substantial road frontage to two separate roads.
In summary, nothing has been overlooked nor any expense spared in terms of its upkeep and maintenance to ensure your future enjoyment, just as much as the present owners have enjoyed over many years.
The location is unmatched- 35 minutes from central Dublin, 20 minutes from the airport, and located between the two vibrant communities of Ratoath and Ashbourne (both villages are within 3 km of the house). Locally, there are excellent schools, and many amenities and services are available including extensive public transport. For the sporting enthusiasts, there is so much to choose from including rugby, GAA, soccer, equestrian pursuits including Fairyhouse racecourse, golf and tennis, to mention but a few.
