DescriptionPrior to the introduction of this beautiful home it must be stated that a viewing is essential in order to fully appreciate the sheer opulence, scale and it’s awe - inspiring interior. “Strangford” is a fine specimen of architectural genius which showcases both bespoke design and exacting standards of finish throughout.
Deceptively spacious from the kerb, accommodation here extends to approx. 5,200 sq.ft. A detached garage offers approx. 400 sq.ft of space and there is potential to possibly convert. The westerly orientation of the rear garden will ensure “Strangfords” ability to shine bright on the property market, catching the eye of the most discerning of buyer.
Built in 2006 where the design philosophy was for light filled spaces flowing into eachother. This has been achieved by well-proportioned reception rooms with access to the gardens, an over generous use of well positioned windows and French doors, vaulted ceilings in the reception hallway and a state of the art lighting system, all further enhanced by Oak and Marble floors throughout. The sweeping Oak staircase is the epitome of opulence and sophistication, an ambience found throughout the entire house.
“Strangford” is distinctive due to the rarity of modern houses found on the well-established leafy Manor Avenue - an impressively wide artery road leading into the Burnaby Estate. Seldom does the opportunity arise to purchase such a property which represents the best of both worlds where one can enjoy living in a home which affords all the mod cons (Strangford comes with a B2 energy rating tag) whilst benefitting from a well-established area where the neighbouring houses are representative of an older, more traditional style.
The description would be incomplete without mentioning the way the current owners have meticulously maintained the gardens- ready for the new occupants to instantly enjoy. Mature trees, clipped hedging and well stocked rockeries are just some of the impressive features.
A truly enviable lifestyle is on offer as one can walk to Greystones town centre which is host to the Dart station for easy access to the city centre. Also, closeby are primary and secondary schools, award winning restaurants, trendy cafes, boutiques and speciality stores. There is an array of leisure and sporting options with the GAA, Rugby, tennis clubs and Shoreline Swimming pool literally across the road. The south beach, cove, harbour and state of the art Marina offer plenty of water based activities such as sailing, kayaking, rowing and sea swimming.
To reside on Manor Avenue is an achievement in itself- to live in “Strangford” – therein lies the trophy!
