Splayed granite steps lead to the main entrance door, which is flanked by two stained glass windows, and leads into the enclosed porch with tiled floor. From here double doors lead to a generously sized reception hallway with oak flooring. A light well from the upper floor floods natural light into this pivotal room, which gives rise to the main living areas. A glass paneled twin set of double doors leads into the formal dining room which opens to the drawing room. These rooms have generous proportions with plenty of light as a result of their dual aspect. There is an ornate mahogany and marble fireplace. This room is west facing with a picture window looking out onto the sun room, which in turn straddles across the living room beside it with magnificent views across Dublin Bay. A single door from the drawing room leads to the living room which is situated between it and the kitchen. The living room includes a stunning, custom made bookcase with shelves and glass cabinet. Sliding patio doors lead to the large sunroom positioned at the back of the house.
The kitchen is made of solid cherry with excellent storage provided by wall and floor units, a centre island and an opulent black granite worktop. There are two sinks, one to the side and one in the centre. The appliances include a Miele cooker, hob and combi-wave, and are indicative of the quality of specification throughout the home. This family friendly room opens to a dual glazed bay window, maximising the view. From the hallway an inner hall leads to a luxuriously appointed family bathroom, complete with his and her pedestal wash hand basins, a large bath, bidet, separate shower and wc. The main bedroom is located on the West wing of the house and is extensively fitted with generous solid cherry wardrobes and presses incorporating a vanity unit. There is also a shower room en-suite and a separate dressing room. From the hallway, the Southerly wing of the house leads to further bedroom accommodations, including two equally sized double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room; the other with a Jack and Jill shower room and fitted wardrobes facing the front of the house, which it shares with the bedroom at the end of the corridor. In addition, a French door opens up to a large south facing conservatory with double doors, which open to a South facing paved patio area. Complete with barbeque, this area creates an attractive and informal dining area ideal for summer dining.
Lower Ground Floor
The lower ground floor is accessed by the stairwell off the main hallway. Double doors add impact and open to an impressive entertainment room, complete with bar and large rectangular room creating the perfect function space for formal family celebrations. The half-moon shaped oak bar is fully fitted with counter top and bar stools. Double doors from this room lead to the pool house with a guest wc and a sauna located adjacent. There are two further bedrooms located on this level, both doubles, one located to the front and one to the back, and both with en-suite shower rooms and fitted wardrobes. The laundry room is also located at this level. In addition there is a dark room / storage room complete with chilled wine cooler. Double doors from this level bring you out onto the large open deck area, glazed with chrome posts for perfect, uninterrupted views of the bay.
There is a large split level floored mezzanine area built up into the eaves of the building with oak balustrade, which defines the two distinct areas. One part is used as a fitness area / gym and the other as a home office which opens to the light well and looks down to the hallway. A landing leads to another large, spacious storage area with bathroom en suite. This space has plenty of light afforded by the strategically placed velux windows.
The gardens are a true delight, complimenting the pristine nature of the property. Neatly clipped hedges provide natural privacy and border the landscaped garden. Mature trees provide a shady canopy over undulating lawns gently sloping southwards. A pond with feature waterfall cascading over a slated mantle provides the perfect peaceful backdrop for any occasion. There is an overall sense of peace and serenity created by the considered landscaping, further complemented by raised flower bed borders and a neatly paved cobble-lock driveway with Parisian style street lamps. Pathways and walls are paved in a variety of natural stones, including granite and Indian sandstone which work together harmoniously. A sheltered patio area with southerly orientation is positioned off the conservatory and provides the perfect barbeque area for relaxed family occasions. Meanwhile, at lower ground level, a well-appointed raised deck with glass balustrade is located off the function room and boasts far reaching and uninterrupted views of Dublin City. A heated indoor swimming pool is located off the functions room, complete with sauna and shower room. There is a car port, as well as parking for several cars in the front of the house.
