Enjoying a prime position directly opposite two amenity greens in a mature residential development in the much sought after south Dublin neighbourhood of Rathfarnham, this exceptionally well-presented five-bed yellow brick home comes to the market in immaculate, turnkey condition.

Originally built in the early 1990s as the only detached house within the development, the current owners have completed regular upgrades and improvements, most notably a seamless extension in the late noughties and more recently, further works in 2019 that created an exceptionally large and light-filled open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge/sun room at the heart of the home.

These more recent works included the installation of a sleek contemporary kitchen, two new bathrooms, quality carpets, hardwearing wood-effect ceramic floor tiles, a new central heating boiler and complete redecoration of all rooms.

The improvements also introduced a host of modern features that keep the property right up to date with contemporary trends. To mention but a few, these include beautifully presented soft furnishings, engineered stone kitchen countertops, top quality bathroom fittings, a composite front door and a Hive system that allows the central heating to be remotely controlled via a smart phone app.

With a total floor area of just under 1,800 square feet (166.5 sq m), the property is almost twice the size of the average three-bed semi. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the kitchen/dining/lounge/sun room, a beautifully presented family living space, which, with a floor area of just over 500 square feet, is larger than many one-bedroomed apartments.

Downstairs accommodation also includes two spacious and well-proportioned reception rooms, one an elegantly presented living room with a gas-fired feature fireplace and the other spacious playroom, a bright and versatile space that could equally well serve as a den, studio, games room, TV lounge, study or other purpose. A spacious and welcoming entrance hall completes the ground floor.

Upstairs there’s a landing leading to a family bathroom and five bedrooms, including one with an ensuite bathroom and another currently in use as a home office. All have built-in wardrobes, carpets and pole-mounted curtains, and are presented to the high standards that are a hallmark of this house.

Outside, there are generously sized gardens to both the front and back, connected by a gated external passage to the side of the house. The walled front garden has a cobblelock driveway providing generous off-street parking space for up to four cars, with a lawn bordered by a raised, bricked planting area filled with mature plants and shrubs.

The picturesque back garden is a peaceful and secluded outdoor space that would not look out of place in the pages of a glossy style magazine. Mainly laid out with low-maintenance artificial grass, it has two eye-catching water features in the form of a rockery pool with miniature waterfall and a separate ‘wishing well.’ Mature boundary hedges enhance privacy by ensuring the garden is not overlooked
