The current owners have transformed this home, remodelling it in recent years from a dated 1960's property to a deceptively modern family home with an impressive B1 energy rating. This is the highest rating achievable without the use of solar panels or renewables, reflecting the superb insulation and solar gain in this property. The remodelling was done under the direction of Keenan-Lynch Architects and the supervision of a structural engineer, both of whom have provided certification of the works done.
Upon entering this property you will be impressed by the superb natural light filling both the atrium hallway and the enormous open-plan family room. This room was created by combining the three original rooms on the southwest side of the building. It has a folding glass wall opening directly to the back garden, protected from the sun by remote control retractable sunshade and window blinds. On one end of this room is a top of the range kitchen, and on the other a peaceful recessed window seat. On either side of the kitchen are sliding doors opening to the utility room and to a boot lobby with back door. To the front are three additional rooms all with French doors opening in the arches of the front portico. These include a large, warm and cosy, drawing room with wood-burning stove, an artist's studio (formerly an ensuite bedroom) with lofted ceiling and dual aspect glazing, and a quiet study carefully designed to minimize screen glare. This of course has a top speed broadband connection.
Upstairs are three more exceptionally large bedrooms, a spacious study, and a family bathroom. The impressive master suite has a large walk-in-wardrobe, designed to keep the clothes out of the living space, and a luxury ensuite with large window, Jacuzzi bathtub and a high pressure, rain head shower. The gable windows are fitted with white plantation wood shutters.
The 35m long, southwest facing, back garden here is a truly delightful private space with extensive planting, a large white limestone patio and lots of sunshine. A remote control louvred pergola and a retractable sunshade make this space usable come rain or shine. The jungle gym and trampoline are available to purchase if desired. In addition there is a 15m x 20m front garden set in lawn, and a 15m x 8m side garden with a driveway and a secluded magnolia garden.
This property is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, well out of earshot from any road noise. There is a walkway to the bus stop on the N11 Quick Bus Corridor(QBC) which provides a rapid connection to Stillorgan Village, UCD and Dublin City Centre (30 minutes), with busses running every 5-10 minutes. In the opposite direction these busses connect with the LUAS at Cherrywood. Alternatively, if you prefer the exercise, this is just 30 minutes walk.
The popular flagship Dunnes Stores shopping centre is just one mile from the property. A new shopping centre to rival Dundrum is currently under construction in Cherrywood.
Kilbogget Park is straight across the road ensuring no development will destroy your privacy. There are pedestrian entrances within 100m in both directions. This park is home to Cabinteely FC, Seapoint Rugby Club, Foxrock/Cabinteely GAA Club and Cabinteely Athletic Club. As well as the sports fields there is a cycle track, palyground, walking route, duck ponds and wildlife area, dog park, tennis courts and a running track. Close by is also the extensive 96 acre Cabinteely Park with a popular coffee shop, playgound, duck pond and "The Grainstore" arts and media centre.
There is an abundance of highly regarded schools and creches in the area. Cabinteely Community School is at the entrance to Shrewsbury Lawn. St. Laurence's College can also be accessed without crossing any roads.
You should take a close look at this gem!
