150 Ard Na Mara is a unique detached dormer style residence tucked away in a small quiet cul de sac in this prestigious residential location just off Dublin Road, close to the pedestrian entrance to Malahide castle and within walking distance of the charming village centre and abundance of local amenities. The property occupies one of the largest sites in Ard Na Mara and when constructed its clever design provided tremendous space for a large cellar area with access from the side and rear garden. No doubt, this area provides endless opportunities for a large wine cellar and for the outdoor enthusiast wonderful storage for canoes, kayaks, bicycles etc.
Upon arrival interested parties will admire the wonderful gardens which over the years have been transformed into an oasis of tranquility. Mature lawns, colourful shrubbery and winding pathways add to the atmosphere in the garden area, driveway leading to the attached garage and the large shrub filled side garden provides access to a totally private west facing rear garden mainly in lawn, large patio area and the entire bounded by strategically positioned shrubs, plants and trees. There is a further area to the rear leading to an irregular shaped orchard with vegetable plot and large glass greenhouse which is ideal as a home allotment area.
Internally, the property enjoys gracious well-proportioned accommodation with reception hall to the side leading to a large open plan lounge / dining room overlooking the garden. The kitchen is located to the side, off which there is a covered area giving access to the garage, WC and boiler house. From here there is also access via steps to the private west facing rear garden. Also at ground floor level there are four spacious bedrooms with family bathroom. Upstairs the attic was converted many years ago to provide three large attic rooms, landing, further bathroom and separate WC.
