Positioned in an exceptionally private setting, this 1960s era house has been totally transformed and modernised by the current owners with a comprehensive refurbishment of the original structure and a seamless extension that has more than doubled the size of the original property.

The result is a bright and spacious family home, enhanced by a host of contemporary features including large windows, a south-facing conservatory and roof-height ceilings which combine to maximise natural light and create a tremendous feeling of airiness and space.

Originally built as a dormer bungalow, the owners retained an award-winning architect to redesign and extend the property. As part of the renovation, all rooms in the the original structure were gutted and completely rebuilt to open up the existing house. They also took full advantage of the property’s large site to build on a completely new wing comprising an expansive open-plan family living space on the ground floor, and a light flooded dual-aspect main bedroom with ensuite bathroom on the first floor.

The transformation is immediately apparent on stepping through the front door, where a striking ash staircase to the upper floor takes pride of place within a bright and airy roof-height entrance hall.

Off the hall are a formal dining room, a lounge with a floor-to-ceiling picture window looking onto the back garden and a ground floor double bedroom ideal for conversion to a home office, playroom or other use. The hall also leads to that large open plan living space, comprising a modern fitted kitchen, an informal family dining space and a lounge with south facing conservatory.

Upstairs, there’s a L-shaped, gallery style landing overlooking the entrance hall below, leading to three more bedrooms. These include the bright and airy roof-height main bedroom featuring an eye-catching triangular window that floods it with natural light, along with an ensuite bathroom. Also on the upper floor are two more spacious bedrooms (both doubles), including one with a walk-in storage room off. The upper floor is completed by a family bathroom, and additional storage and a hot press, both off the landing.

Outside, the property is bounded by a tall and mature beech hedge that completely screens the house from public view. Secured by an electronic gate with intercom, the entrance leads to a gravelled drive with parking space for several cars. There are gardens to front and rear, and a standalone garage, not included in the overall floor area. Wired for electricity, this is currently used for storage, but is ideal for use as a workshop or alternatively, offers potential for conversion into a home office, granny flat or other use.

The property is positioned within a mature residential development in one of South Dublin’s most sought-after suburbs, within easy reach of UCD and the nearby village centres of Blackrock, Stillorgan and Donnybrook.
