DescriptionRiverdale Nook is a unique home, nestled at the top of Upper Green in Kilcoole. Originally a cluster of traditional cottages, the current owners, along with the assistance of Brennan Architects, managed to seamlessly blend the old with the new, putting great care and careful thought into the construction and design, the result being undoubtedly a unique family home. Currently consisting of a new build which blends in with an original 2 storey cottage, this fine home is just full of character throughout. It boasts a truly wonderful location, ensuring great privacy, yet being within minutes of Kilcoole main street and a short drive to Greystones. If you are looking for something just that little bit different, something that combines old world charm and modern living, then this could be the home for you.
When you enter this fine home, you will be struck by the feeling of spaciousness and natural light throughout. The hallway is a great size and currently is the location for the family piano! It is a bright space with large picture windows on all sides. All of these windows and many of the windows in the home have beautifully handmade wooden surrounds, harvested in Ireland, a really lovely natural touch which is carried throughout the home. To the right of the hallway are the main reception areas. On entering the living room, one can not fail to be impressed by the large picture window taking up one wall of the room - through this your eye is drawn to some of the most amazing views over the fields and to the Sugarloaf mountain and beyond. The large open fireplace sets the ambience for this room and it is the ideal space to spend many a winters evening in front of the cosy fire. Likewise in the summertime, you can really enjoy the bright evenings and sunshine from here. Being open plan with the kitchen, this area really is the heart of this fine home. A utility room can be accessed off the kitchen, it offers ample space to hide away all the kitchen paraphernalia! Off the living room there is another cosy reception room, which is ideal for many uses, a playroom, a library or a home office for anyone needing office space. It also boasts a stove. It could also be used as a self contained suite as it in turn leads to a shower room and a beautiful and spacious bedroom.
Further down the hallway is the family bathroom and another bedroom. At the end of the hallway is the children's playroom, again, this room boasts a stove and is a room that could have various uses. This stove is plummed to a heat genie system and heat can be transferred throughout the house. The original porch is also located here and this gives access to the rear gardens.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two are doubles and one single and a separate shower room. The main bedrooms upstairs boast the most stunning countryside views.
