Churches Estate Agents bring to the market this substantial 4 bedroom detached property that is set on a large plot of grounds circa 0.9 of an acre. Equally, there is a significant residential development opportunity (S.P.P) on this rectangular-shaped parcel of land that fronts onto Church Road, Killiney.
As a home: This wonderful 1950’s property, circa 269m2 – 2900 sq ft, is perched on a height to take advantage of views across Dublin Mountains. Stepped well back from Church Road there is ample garden to the front & this is duplicated to the rear. With tall trees providing great privacy, a long drive with a canopy of heavy foliage will make this property of great interest to those who require a private home on its own manicured grounds.
As a residential development opportunity: This property had full planning granted (F.P.P) for 3 detached homes in Sept 2008 – Ref D08A/0089. The neighbouring plot to the ground next-door (Condor) was developed a number of years ago to create a gated private estate of 4 considerable detached homes. Directly across the road & well under construction is a mixed modern development apartments & houses. To the southern end of Church Road there are another two developments; Balure – a completed development of 8 detached homes. The second development is Egremont – a mix of modern high-end homes under construction.
Secure & tall granite walled entrance leads you from Church Road, Killiney into the property. Living up to its opposite meaning ‘Meer’ will certainly impress those purchasers that require peace & quiet while being surrounded on this c.0.9 acre of a tranquil setting. Tree-lined long drive with a lawn to the right leads to the property. Standing over two floors with the main accommodation on a higher level you will appreciate the size & location of this great family residence.
The double-height entrance hall has stairs that bring you up into a long entrance hallway with a tiled floor. To front & with a balcony is the first of the four bedrooms in this family home. With excellent views of the front lawn & Dublin Mountains, one would call this room the master bedroom. Gracious & splendid entertaining lounge room with feature fireplace is ‘L’ shaped with carpet flooring; this room can easily double up to accommodate visiting guests for formal dining. At the back of the property is a large kitchen with Aga & it is well stocked with fitted units; off this area is a neat & separate breakfast room.
From the main hallway is direct access to the rear garden with storage cupboards on both sides of this corridor. Next is a generous utility room that is plumbed & fitted with storage presses & it has a tiled floor. The remaining three bedrooms follow- two large doubles & the third an extra-large double with an en-suite. Beneficial to this 3rd bedroom & one of the large doubles is that they both have double windows overlooking the front. Family bathroom with decorative tiling & 3 x piece suite completes the upper level. To finish the property is a basement area with a separate bathroom.
The elevated grounds of Meer are in lawn with mature planting along boundaries & you have a detached garage the side of the main residence with sheds in the back garden. The property is west facing to the front & has an east aspect to the rear. Locally you have Killiney Golf Club, Killiney Shopping Centre, DART & busy bus routes. Access to the beach is by a warren of old passages ways & within a 20 mins walk, by car you will get there in 5 mins. Dalkey Town & Killiney Hill Park are both very close-by. The newly formed Cherrywood development is eagerly on plan to create a host of shopping facilities, eateries & a cinema. This new Town Centre & Village will be a brisk walk away. Green LUAS Line is already operational from Cherrywood & will get you to Dundrum Town Centre or Dublin City Centre in comfort without any delay of bustling traffic.
