Retaining its characteristic period exterior, this detached, two-story 1970s era house has been comprehensively remodeled and extended to create an exceptionally spacious contemporary family home.

Positioned on its own site that includes large gardens to front and rear, Rodings is one of just eight detached properties forming a secluded cul-de-sac within Castle Park, a mature residential neighborhood conveniently close to both Monkstown village (800m) and Dun Laoghaire town center (1.7km).

At almost three times the size of an average semi-detached house, all rooms are well proportioned and exceptionally spacious, with a well-executed extension creating a light-filled open-plan kitchen-diner with an adjoining family lounge at the center of the home. This space seamlessly links with a courtyard-style patio to provide a classic ‘room outside,’ which in turn leads on to a mature, lawned back garden bordered by well-tended trees, plants and shrubs.

Downstairs accommodation also includes an exceptionally large living room spanning the full frontage of the house and overlooking the front garden. There’s also a bigger than average downstairs bedroom, which emphatically ticks the working-from-home box by being easily converted to a study or home office.

The downstairs accommodation is completed by a utility room large enough to qualify as a kitchen in its own right, a bright entrance hall, and a guest bathroom, one of three in the property that has been upgraded to as-new condition, including new fittings, tiling, and sanitary ware.

On the upper floor, a carpeted landing leads to the upgraded family bathroom and three upstairs bedrooms – two of these, including the main with upgraded ensuite bathroom, of larger than average size.

Other features of note include oak flooring throughout most of the ground floor, a high spec fitted kitchen, tasteful décor, and optimum use of large windows, in some cases combined with roof lights, to flood the home with natural light.

Outside, the large front garden includes a long drive providing generous off-street parking, while to the rear a well-maintained and secluded back garden with no fewer than three patios is an ideal entertainment space, perfect for family gatherings, barbecues, or hosting friends on a warm evening.
