FLOOR AREA: 199 sq m/2,142 sq ft

Constructed by the Comer Group in conjunction with Thorpvale Construction, in 2016, 17 Hersilwood forms part of an enclave development of 24 modern, A-rated homes located off Knocklyon Road, in the mature suburb of Knocklyon, in southwest County Dublin.

Traditional in style and appearance, all of the houses have been completed to the highest standards of modern construction, finish and design, with outstanding energy efficiency, top quality materials and a host of high-end contemporary features.

With all houses in the development already larger than the average four-bedroomed family home, in the case of No17 the current owners extended its original footprint even further by having a second reception built on during the construction phase, so increasing its overall size to over 2,100 sq ft.

Thanks to its position backing on to extensive local playing fields, the property is not overlooked and enjoys an exceptionally secluded rear aspect – something the owners have taken full advantage by creating a superbly designed, professionally landscaped and very private back garden. This features an extensive granite paved patio, raised brick and granite planters, low-maintenance astroturf and mature trees, with lattice-topped PVC boundary fences.

Like all the houses within the development, No17 was built to the highest specifications with many top-end features including hand-painted kitchens incorporating quartz worktops, Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware and high quality wall and floor tiling in all bathrooms plus many more as standard.

Presented in pristine condition throughout, the current owners further enhanced this already high standard of specifications by adding many upgraded features and finishes. These include engineered oak floors, handmade curtains, bespoke cabinetry, tasteful décor and an eye-catching feature fireplace with enclosed wood-burning stove, all integrated within a superbly well executed scheme overseen by a professional interior design expert.

With a toasty A2 BER rating, 17 Hersilwood is a highly energy efficient home, incorporating solar panels, energy saving gas condensing boilers, a state-of-the-art heat recovery system, triple glazed UPV Windows and a high level of insulation, all of which combine to lower energy costs.

Spanning 199 sq m (2,142, sq. ft.), accommodation is laid out over three floors. On the ground floor, a good-sized entrance hall leads onto two receptions rooms – a lounge and sitting room, both overlooking the front of the house – and, at the heart of the home, an open plan kitchen/living room/dining. This exceptionally large family living space is flooded with natural light streaming through double French doors with adjoining windows, leading into the back garden. A utility room off the kitchen, a guest bathroom off the hall and understair storage completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the second floor are four bedrooms, one with ensuite bathroom and another currently in use as a home office, along with a family bathroom and landing with stairs leading to the second floor.

This upper floor is given over entirely to the main bedroom, an exceptionally large and beautifully decorated space with a feature triangular window overlooking the front garden and an ensuite bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and an additional storage room off.

Outside, the low-maintenance front garden has a drive providing ample off-street parking for two cars. From here, a gated passageway leads to the back garden, as well as providing a discrete bin storage area and space for a steel storage shed.

Knocklyon is a long established southside location, extremely popular with people looking to purchase a long-term family home. The location enjoys all the conveniences of a thriving Dublin suburb, with modern utilities and services including the M50, excellent bus route to the city centre (a stop for the 15 bus route is at the entrance to the estate), Marlay Park and excellent schools and colleges.
