DescriptionSherry FitzGerald is delighted to bring to the market 'Thomond', 171 Park Avenue. This sizeable detached 4 bedroom home with office, an attic conversion and a detached garage/boiler house, occupies a particularly large site at the end of a cul de sac and bounding an area of public open space. The site boasts an enviably sunny south orientation to the rear. Noteworthy are the substantial front and rear walled gardens which would be an enthusiastic gardener's delight.
There is obvious potential to extend the existing to the rear and side and/or convert the garage giving additional living accommodation/supporting home based economic activity/working from home space/family apartment up to 60 sq.m. The site has sufficient space to accommodate an additional residential unit(s) all subject to appropriate planning permission.
Park Avenue is situated right in the heart of Castleknock Village with all that village life has to offer in terms of shops, bars, restaurants, churches etc. There is a great choice of both National & Secondary Schools in this catchment, as well as sporting clubs including Castleknock Tennis Club and St.Brigid's GAA Club. Castleknock Train Station which serves City Centre & Maynooth is just a short walk. Unrivalled access to the N3, M3 M50 and Dublin Airport will appeal to the commuter.
To the front the property is fully walled, with off street parking for up to 5 cars. A double side gate alongside the detached garage leads to the enormous sunny south facing and not overlooked rear garden. A striking Acer with box hedging encompass the circular patio outside the patio doors. A hardwood pergola extending the full length of the rear of the house which clematis and passion flower cling to, gives welcome shade in the warmer months. An extremely attractive log cabin with dual windows and double glass doors is a lovely addition and beyond it is a hidden metal shed which houses garden equipment. A gravel pathway guides you to walk past the vegetable patch, raspberry and strawberry beds. A raised cobble stone area allows you to sit next to the pond. Flowering borders and apple trees make for a perfect garden to while away the hours, whilst enjoying the glory of the Ginkgo Tree which is native to China and has various uses in traditional medicine.
The exceptional length of rear boundary is onto a zoned area of open amenity space. The accommodation within the house will allow a family individual sufficient space to be able to work from home or home school.
We highly recommend viewing.
