Churches Estate Agents are delighted to bring to the market this stunning 5 bedroom detached residence. GarryArd is perched on c.1 acre of private landscaped and mature grounds. The property enjoys fabulous sea and mountain views that stretch from Dalkey to Bray Head and out to sea.
This Kilmacanogue 5 bedroom property boasts many extra qualities including a basement or a studio with its own access. This independent garden level accommodation has many uses from providing extra space for private staff to separate quarters for an au pair or to have as a home office/client space. Another extra to this fine home is the large attic that is accessed from the mezzanine level. This substantial and very impressive area has a multiple number of uses and can be easily upgraded to increase the internal accommodation (S.P.P) while taking advantage of views towards the coast.
GarryArd is an exceptional home within the popular and discrete neighbourhood of Rocky Valley Drive, Kilmacanogue. A short drive from this property will bring you to Enniskerry where you will enjoy a peaceful village setting with local shops, cafés and eateries. Renowned Powers Court House and Gardens are a mere 5 mins from the village. In the opposite direction from the property the road will take you to Bray and further afield into the garden of Ireland. For those who need to commute to the city you have ease and direct access onto the M11 and M50 – 2 mins drive.
Maybe it’s an Irish tradition but the ideal way to visit this property when viewing is by the rear through black private double gates. These high gates lead you onto a large gravel drive where you will be able to park up to 8 -10 cars if required. Stepping up to the house you enter the main living room with high 9ft bow windows looking back over South Dublin, Wicklow and the sea. Wooden flooring and a stove set the tone for this main feature living and entertaining room. Spacious American style open plan kitchen will suit all budding chefs and home hosts. This large space benefits from a granite worktop, induction range, Belfast sink and is linked with a very comfortable dining area. A mezzanine level towers over the kitchen and living area and Velux windows allow natural light to fill this floor.
The vast scale of this fine home continues into the sleeping chambers with continuous wide Oak French wood flooring. This brings you into a long hallway and to the main front reception of the property. At the end of this central internal corridor, you find a very generous master bedroom with an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe/dressing room. The remaining four bedrooms comprise of three double bedrooms (1 x with an en suite) and a single bedroom. The tiled family bathroom is serviced with a 3 x piece suite and a shower; to compliment this space is a double door hot press and a linen cupboard.
The two points to access the self-contained basement that was previously used as a Health Spa are from the driveway to the rear and the main living room, this lower level is an open plan living space and kitchenette, 1 x bedroom, 1 x large storage room and an independent entrance hallway.
Within the boundaries of GarryArd, the grounds have been well thought out and planned. Strategic planting of trees and shrubs over the c.1 acre of grounds have nicely matured to blend in with the environs of the local neighbourhood landscapes. Outside lighting adds to the idyllic and scenic setting that has been professionally created. Dual entrances are available for the new owners or their visiting guests. There is a choice of the formal entrance to the front of the property with parking for 2 – 4 cars or by entering through the back of the property with ample parking on offer.
Kilmacanogue is a hidden gem of a location being within close proximity to Bray, Dublin and excellent road linkage. Choice of well-established and a good selection of private and mainstream schools both primary and secondary are only minutes away. Sporting requirements are satisfied with the property being close to a number of professional golf courses and field sports. Horse riding, equestrian centres and stables are an abundance and close by. Historic Glendalough, Avoca Handweavers, Killruddery House and the Sugarloaf will provide endless walks and indoor/outdoor recreational activities.
Viewing is a must and is highly recommended.
