WONDERFUL SEMI-DETACHED 4-BED IN EXCLUSIVE QUIET CUL DE SAC
Churches Estate Agents Blackrock are delighted to present this wonderful property in a desirable location in the heart of Monkstown. Castle Park is a popular, exclusive cul-de-sac centred about a circular park, with lovely red-brick fronted semi-detached homes. Located a short walk from Monkstown Village, the area has a plethora of fantastic amenities, shops, cafes and restaurants on its doorstep, not to mention schools and transport connections in the area.
No. 17 Castle Park is perfectly located in the estate, the front looking out over the central park while the large rear garden is South-West facing, ideal for the sun. The house currently extends to 1,700 sq ft (158 sqm) over ground, first and second floor, plus an additional garage and storage sheds to the side and rear extending to nearly 500 sq ft. The house is in great condition but could have incredible potential with modernisation and extension.
The property is set back from the road with a long front lawn and concrete driveway area, leading to the front door and side garage space. Entering the front hallway, you are met by a beautiful original stained-glass side panel and walk in to lovely hard timber floors, that lead you right into the living room or back into the kitchen-dining room. Under the stairs is a guest WC.
The front rooms of the property have super bay windows, really taking in the view of the centre green in Castle Park. This living room is spacious but cosy, set around an inset tile-surround fireplace.
The rear kitchen-dining room is a very generous size, with U-shaped kitchen area with island/breakfast bar, space for a seating area and a large family dining table. Double-doors lead on to an attached sun room, taking in the glorious views of the rear garden.
Upstairs at first floor level includes two large double bedrooms facing front and back, both with built-in storage spaces, the front again with that large bay window overlooking the green. A third smaller bedroom is still a fairly good size and bathroom plus separate WC.
Up to the third floor there is a giant 4th bedroom with ensuite shower room, with bright window to the south and large skylights making this a fabulous space with plentiful storage.
The rear garden is truly special. Extending to 35m (115 ft) and up to 24m (80ft) wide, it is bordered to the rear by a gorgeous old granite monastery wall, and includes a beautiful expanse of lawn and some stunning mature trees. With a south west aspect, the back of the house gets the sun all day and well into the evening in the summer.
To the side of the garden includes a garage and large set of sheds, extending to nearly 500 sq ft. This whole side and rear area could provide ample opportunity for a significant extension to this house to create large modern open-plan spaces on the ground floor (S.T.P.P), without losing much of its large garden.
Castle Park is a wonderful place for a large family home. Close to excellent schools of Monkstown and Blackrock, including Monkstown Park Junior School directly over the road. The area is surrounded by amazing amenities including Monkstown Pool and Leisure Centre and Monkstown Tennis Club right around the corner, with many more further afield including Dun Laoghaire Harbour. Transport connections include a DART station at Monkstown just 15 minute walk away. The village itself is one of the best small village centres in Dublin, with some major restaurants and small boutique shops.
