DescriptionKillary is a fine detached pre-war home occupying a generous site of approx. 0.162 ha/0.4 acres boasting a private, large west facing garden to the rear. Whilst the property has been upgraded and extended over the years it provides a wonderful opportunity and scope to interpret the existing accommodation to create a truly magnificent family home. The house has been extended to the rear to maximize the impact of light from the magnificent west facing garden. The result is an exceptionally bright and spacious, light infused interior. The main fabric of the house provides a superb canvas allowing the incoming purchasers to create a home of their own design to combine with the mature and large gardens to the front and rear for the perfect home without compromise.
A pebbled driveway leads to the front parking apron. Wrought iron railings, Grisilinia hedging and a mowed front lawn, neatly delineated with clipped box hedging, provides an air of charm from yesteryear. The pebble driveway is spacious with ample car parking. The front door opens to the entrance hallway. From here a door leads to the study located beside the garage with built in cupboards, bookshelves and storage in what was once the fireplace. To the right of the hall is the exceptionally spacious L-Shaped drawing room. This room has a bay window and a tiled fireplace looking out over the front garden. A glass wall divided into four panels, two of which are fixed and two which open into the living room. This room looks out towards the garden to the rear and in turn opens out to the bright breakfast room. The breakfast room benefits from a lantern roof which magnifies and reflects light into this area and has French doors to the patio garden. Step down from here to the kitchen which has modern wall and floor units. A hotpress with dual immersion is discretely tucked away. There is a Bosch dishwasher, Miele fridge, DeDietrich double oven and Neff 4 plate gas hob with “Baraldi” extractor fan. From here a door leads to the well-proportioned family room with wide oak floor boards and dual aspect enjoying delightful vista of the garden to the rear. A shower room is located off this room with Triton electric shower, whb, wc and built in linen cupboard. The kitchen also leads back to the hall and to the scullery room with stainless steel sink unit and single drainer. It is plumbed for washing machine. From here there is a door to the back garden.
From the hall a stair leads to a bathroom and separate wc located on the first return. There are three bedrooms to the front of the house two double bedrooms both with wardrobes and a single bedroom. There is a further double bedroom to the back of the house with built in wardrobes, presses and a separate wash hand basin. A short flight of stairs leads to a landing with fitted wardrobes and to a snug attic space.
The front garden enjoys a gravelled driveway and lawned area. To the rear of the house there is a raised patio and steps down to the exceptionally spacious and very private garden to the rear. The garden is laid out mainly in lawn however a Wedding Cake Tree (Cornus Controversa Variegata) provides an aesthetically appealing focal point which totally captivates and draws the eye towards it. A beautiful addition to any garden this one doesn't disappoint. The flower beds which frame the garden are well stocked with a variety of specimen shrubs and plants to include acers, Japanese Maple and fuschia to name a few. There is a side entrance to one side of the house and a garage (2.88m x 4.04m) to the other. In addition, integral to the house though accessed from the rear, there is a wc and separate storage shed.
Positioned on leafy Marlborough Road, Killary is literally a two minute walk from Glenageary DART Station and moments from the picuturesque Villages of Sandycove, Glasthule villages and Dalkey Heritage town. There is a multitude of primary and secondary schools on your doorstep, as well as a host of maritime amenities afforded by being such a short proximity to Dun Laoghaire's four Sailing Clubs. For the tennis enthusiast both Sandycove and Glenageary Tennis Clubs are closeby. The area provides many fine coastal and hill walks and bathing areas being in close proximity to Bullock Harbour, Sandycove Beach and Killiney Hill. The Dart line provides great ease of access to further schools and colleges along the coastline and in the city centre. The M50 and the M11 are within easy reach, providing access to all the major national routeways both north and south.
