DescriptionListed on the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage “Timor” is one of a matching pair of semi detached period homes built c. 1905. These homes continue to be the most distinctive of their type within the Burnaby Estate.
Located just off Portland Road-South Place, so much more than a residential cul de sac, is genuinely a little piece of heaven, representing exclusivity, seclusion and privacy. Sea views can be enjoyed here making this area even more desirable. In general, the location is truly excellent as a quick stroll leads you to Greystones town centre, Beach and Dart.
“Timor” itself is a fine specimen of Domestic Revival artistic architecture and comes to the market with unusual external features such as an overhanging roof, rendered facades featuring small sections of timber framing and a partly glazed timber hall door with beautiful sidelights and segmented headed fan light.
The accommodation is in great decorative condition and comprises 5 bedrooms all on the top level. There are 3 well-proportioned reception rooms, kitchen cum breakfast room and a utility room. Period features remind one of a bygone era include original sash windows, marble fireplaces, high ceilings, picture rails and architraves. A bright red Aga adds to the warm, homely feel of the kitchen area. There’s lots of storage here in the form of a spacious floored attic complete with fitted ladder and outside - a large garage (used as a den) attached to the property with dual entrance and purpose-built concrete storage sheds. The rear garden mainly laid out in lawn enjoys a westerly orientation - perfect for those summer barbecues.
Greystones town is becoming increasingly popular with its array of trendy cafes, award winning restaurants, specialist shops and boutiques. Despite having grown significantly over the past number of years, the town has managed to retain its sense of local community and friendly atmosphere. Nearby sporting and leisure facilities are in abundance which include forest, beach and coastal walks, golf clubs, rugby, GAA and soccer clubs, Tennis club, the Shoreline running track and swimming pool. The new Marina is a super addition to the town.
For commuting there is quick access to the N11 leading to the M50 which provides access to all arterial routes around the country. There are nearby local bus routes within 5 minutes walking distance including the Aircoach which travels direct to Dublin airport and the DART.
