Available to view in accordance with the Property Services Providers Guidance to implementing the government’s Plan for Living with Covid 19. Hunters Estate Agent is excited to present to the market this stunning detached five-bedroom home. Extending to a generous 200sq.m/2,153sq.ft, this fine home has been well maintained and upgraded under the stewardship of one careful owner from new. Castleside Drive is an exclusive tree lined cul de sac set in the sought after Castleside development in the heart of Rathfarnham, with the Castle Golf Club to the rear and the Rathfarnham Castle Park to the front. Designed by renowned architects Delany, McVeigh and Pike (now O’Mahony Pike), this 1986 development has an excellent pedigree. Throughout, the excellent build quality is self evident, with solid wood flooring, solid doors and excellent finishes. Throughout the property there are generous proportions and a wonderful quality of light abounds. The overarching impression is that of the potential for the most wonderful lifestyle. With parks on your doorstep and the villages of Rathfarnham and Terenure just a short walk away, the property combines the ease of city living with easy access to a myriad of parks and the Dublin Mountains. There is ample opportunity to further extend to the side and rear of the existing property, subject to planning permission. Houses of this scale and location rarely come to the market and viewing comes highly recommended. Upon entering the property, one is welcomed by a generous hall leading to all the principal rooms of the house. To the right, a large light filled drawing room with bay window and fireplace provides an excellent room for entertaining, while to the rear a dining room boasts a stove and access to the rear garden. To the left, a family room opens to the kitchen/breakfast room, with its built in units and island with breakfast bar. To the rear of the kitchen lies a well equipped utility room and the ground floor accommodation is completed by a guest wc and understairs storage. Rising to the first floor, one finds to the front a generous master bedroom with ensuite. There are three further generous bedrooms and a study/fifth bedroom, all benefitting from built in storage. A well equipped and spacious family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation. Outside to the rear, a large landscaped garden with easterly aspect and sylvan outlook over the Castle Golf Club boasts a garden room/office and a large heated games room which could be used as a second work from home space. There is dual gated pedestrian side access. To the front there is ample gated parking for three cars, surrounded by mature specimen planting and a beech hedge. Castleside Drive is a truly special setting beside the lovely Rathfarnham Castle Park and just across the road from the village, with a number of excellent eateries, a butcher, pharmacies, barbers, and a newsagent. The property also has the benefit of being just a short walk from Terenure, which is becoming a foodie destination. Easy access to the M50 and road network allows for further shopping at Ballinteer, Dundrum, and Nutgrove. There is a great selection of schools in the area including The High School, Rathfarnham Parish National School, Ballyroan Boys, Scoil Naomh Pádraig, Colaiste Eanna, Sancta Maria College, Loreto Beaufort, Terenure, Templeogue, and St Columba’s College to name but a few. For nature lovers, having the Dublin mountains on your doorstep is a real treat with walks at Three Rock, The Hellfire Club, Massey’s Wood, Cruagh, and Tibradden all just a short drive away. Bushy Park and Marlay Park are also close by, offering yet more opportunity to get out and about. The location is well serviced by public transport with the 15b, 15d, 16, 16a, 75, and 75a offering easy access to the city centre and surrounding suburbs.
