Inside, the home boasts two formal reception rooms including a drawing room with timber bay and French doors that open out onto the garden and a dining room with doors to the conservatory. Both rooms have matching white marble fireplaces. 

Further inside, you’ll find the more informal family accommodation which comprises of a snug family room, located off the kitchen, with access to the sunroom. In the kitchen, you’ll find wall and floor pine kitchen cabinets, a Neff double oven, an AGA and a stainless steel sink unit with single drainer. 

The kitchen in turn opens up to a large, dual-aspect, sun-filled breakfast room with double-glazed doors to the garden. Off the breakfast room is a shower room and sauna.

Upstairs, the first-floor accommodation comprises five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate toilet. Spacious and with an abundance of natural light, many of the bedrooms feature window seats and fireplaces.

Privy to outstanding views out towards Stepaside and the Dublin Mountains, the property gives the impression of being in a rural-like setting, whilst still being within a short stroll of the LUAS stop at Carrickmines. In addition to the back of the house, there is a large, double-detached garage.
