LOCATION: Mature residential area seven minutes from the centre of Maynooth
PROPERTY TYPE: Semi-detached single-storey house

Conveniently located in a mature residential neighbourhood just a short walk from Maynooth’s University campus and town centre, this 1950s era property has undergone a total transformation within the past five years following comprehensive and well-executed refurbishment works by the current owners.
The result is an immaculately presented single-storey contemporary home enhanced by a host of modern features including underfloor heating, engineered semi-solid parquet floors, bespoke carpentry and a spacious open-plan kitchen-dining room with a roof-height ceiling with four Velux windows above.
Spanning just over 104 sq m, planning permission has been granted for an extension that will increase the existing floor area by almost 50%.
At the heart of the home, that light-filled kitchen-dining room features stylish fitted units, including floor and eye level storage, a separate island unit with Belfast sink, integrated Neff appliances, extensive butcher block solid timber countertops and an eye-catching wall mounted, dual-aspect timber burning fireplace.
The fireplace also serves as a focal point for the adjoining living room, another large space that is separate from, but unified with the kitchen-dining room thanks to the clever use of the same herringbone pattern semi-solid flooring and matching bespoke fitted storage and shelving.
There are three bedrooms, two at the front of the house with built-in wardrobes and one at the back, all with Venetian blinds and quality carpets. A well-appointed contemporary bathroom completes the accommodation.
Outside, there’s an exceptionally large back garden (600 sq m) of a size rarely seen in modern builds, featuring a pristine silver granite patio directly accessed via a glass door from the sitting room, providing the perfect outdoor space to sit out on sunny days. The patio in turn leads on to a large and well-maintained lawn, bounded to the sides and rear by mature hedges and trees, enhancing privacy. On the other side of the house, the front garden is set out in low-maintenance gravel with a good-sized drive to the side of the property providing generous parking for two cars.
Families will appreciate the property’s location in a mature residential area with access to the excellent choice of schools, shops, sporting amenities and leisure facilities that Maynooth has to offer. Thanks to its single storey layout, the property will also appeal to downsizers and retirees.
For those with an eye to potential, the planning grant gives permission for a large, architect-designed extension that will bring the property to 150 sq m – an increase of almost 50% on the existing floor area.
