Number One The Paddocks is a wonderful, detached family home built in 1971 in a contemporary architectural style influenced by the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. The Paddocks is a small enclave of just eight houses ideally located off Ulverton Road in the heart of Dalkey Heritage Town. It has been in the same ownership for 35 years and has been lovingly upgraded and renovated over this time. It now offers new owners a home in turnkey condition with light filled, spacious accommodation complemented by stylish interior design and attention to detail throughout. To the front of the property there is an electric sliding gate, and a large, gravelled driveway offering parking for several cars. The house stands on approximately 0.2acre of extremely private, beautifully landscaped wraparound gardens with a sunny southerly orientation. The internal accommodation extends to approximately 268sq.m (2,855sq.ft) with a summerhouse in the garden of 22sq.m (237 sq. ft). At hall level there is an expansive semi-open plan living/dining room with a high sloped ceiling, a great space for entertaining. Above this there is a mezzanine level with a desk space, and a bedroom/home office with an en-suite overlooking the terrace/patio area to the rear. A bright kitchen/dining/family space with a separate utility overlooks the terrace/patio. There are three large bedrooms off the entrance hall, the master is en-suite with a walk-in wardrobe and a relaxation/reading space to one end overlooking the garden with access out to a breakfast deck, the perfect spot for your morning coffee. The two other bedrooms are generously proportioned with good storage, and one has access to a Jack and Jill shower room, also accessible from the hall. A large family bathroom completes the accommodation at this level. At lower garden level there is a spacious yet cosy den/family room, with access to the side of the property and a fifth bedroom with an en-suite. This versatile space could easily be used as self-contained accommodation for guests if required. The Paddocks is located within strolling distance of Dalkey which is one of South County Dublin?s most popular coastal villages to live in. Everything that you need is on your doorstep including excellent restaurants, a Post Office, Library, Supermarket; and specialist shops such as Robert?s, Country Bake, Thyme Out, Select Stores and Grapevine. Number One is a short stroll away from Bulloch and Coliemore Harbours, the Vico bathing area and the Forty Foot, all of which are popular leisure spots for swimming, fishing, and walking. Dalkey and the surrounding coastline is an area of great natural beauty with scenic walks along the Vico Road and on Killiney Hill. There are excellent public transport links to include the DART, 59 & 7 bus route and the Aircoach providing a direct link with Dublin Airport. This area is very popular with young families because of the abundance of excellent primary and secondary schools on your doorstep.
