DescriptionInnisfree started off life in the mid 1800's as a game keeper's cottage to the neighbouring Powerscourt House Estate. It was extensively remodeled into what is now a fantastic, spacious and light filled family home extending to approximately 190 sq.m. / 2,045 sq.ft. with the added attraction of a highly desirable south facing private rear garden and views towards the iconic Sugarloaf Mountain.
An eclectic mix of old and new this stunning contemporary property is presented in an immaculate 'turnkey' condition throughout, having been sensitively restored and extended by the current owners over a decade ago to a high specification and standard. In brief the spacious accommodation comprises of an entrance porch; a double height reception room with vaulted ceiling and antique cast iron fireplace; a guest double bedroom; a bathroom; an impressive interlinked kitchen/dining and living room which is cleverly designed with a subtle wall division, wall to wall and floor to ceiling windows providing plenty of natural light. Upstairs there are three large double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite whilst the third and biggest bedroom is on a split level with excellent wardrobe space. On the ground floor at the front of the house there is also the added benefit of a converted garage which could be easily connected or simply used as a home office, games room, playroom or for au pair accommodation.
Nestled in a quiet residential enclave on the outskirts of picturesque Enniskerry Village in the townland of Kilmolin, the property offers the best of both country and suburban living. It is ideally located within close proximity of the local services and amenities including primary schools, churches, shops, cafes, bars & restaurants, the renowned Powerscourt Estate & Gardens with its golf club, 5 star hotel, Avoca Handweavers and garden centre. The area has an abundance of outdoor activities and it is a magnet for hill walkers and cyclists. The Village is serviced by both the 185 & 44 Dublin Bus Service with a stop for the No 185 at the end of the laneway and direct connectivity to Bray DART station. The N11/M50 is less than 5 minutes drive, with the Luas at either Cherrywood or Carrickmines 10 minutes away, all providing easy access to the city centre and beyond.
To the front of the house there is a large graveled driveway set behind wooden electric gates which provides ample parking for 4 cars with mature hedging and a fence. A side passageway leads down the side of the house passing an internal courtyard to the large rear south facing & sun drenched garden with a decked patio area ideal for 'al fresco' dining directly accessible from the house whilst the mature shrubbery, trees and flower beds provides a private oasis to enjoy.
