Description

Hunters Estate Agent is thrilled to present to the market this stunning architect designed 4 bedroom family home to the market. Set in the heart of Monkstown, no expense has been spared to lovingly create this A3 rated masterpiece of modern design. The renowned architecture firm ODOS designed the property to turn the site restrictions to its advantage creating an almost secret home hidden from the world and focused on light with internal atrium courtyard and beautifully framed sky vistas. The house was completed in 2014 and boasts solar water heating panels, a heat recovery system, underfloor heating, and a green roof with a water recovery system. Throughout the use of clever diffused lighting gives a gentle glow illuminating and highlighting features. This innovative property nestles behind a high boundary wall and offers a tranquil retreat from the outside world. The bedrooms are located on the ground floor opening to a “Zen” courtyard while the living spaces on the first floor are connected through an outdoor atrium and sun terrace allowing for a wonderful quality of light to flood the generous living spaces. Outside to the front a large garden set out in gravel and specimen planting sits behind electric gates and offers generous off-street parking with the potential to create further garden space while to the rear and upstairs there are a series of stunning outdoor spaces including a zen courtyard garden, sun terrace and atrium. The property is located five minutes’ walk from Seapoint for swimmers and a short walk to both Monkstown and Blackrock. Commuting is a breeze with the Seapoint Dart Station just across the road and the new dedicated cycle lane an easy run into the city centre.

Upon entering the house one is welcomed by a hall with staircase running to the first floor and door to the Zen Garden. Ascending the stairs to the first floor living space one is immediately struck by the wonderful quality of light. To the right a dining space opens to the stylish and minimalist kitchen with island unit. Off the kitchen a small utility hides any clutter. An outdoor atrium courtyard separates the kitchen/dining area from the drawing room and acts as another living space in good weather. The drawing room benefits from two walls of glass which flood it with light and views of the sky and clouds. The drawing room opens on to a sun terrace with steps leading down to the Zen Courtyard Garden and bedrooms below.

On the ground floor the hall leads to a living room overlooking the front garden which could also function as office, playroom or a fourth bedroom depending on one’s needs. The gallery corridor is part double height allowing light to flood in from the first-floor atrium and a unique opportunity to view your artwork while outdoors and leads to a luxurious main bedroom with double height ceiling has a whole wall of storage and opens to the internal courtyard. A stylish ensuite lies just off it and the whole space feels almost removed from the rest of the house. Two further generous double bedrooms both benefit from access to the courtyard and one of these also has the benefit of a further stylish ensuite. A luxurious guest bathroom and cloaks cupboard complete the accommodation.

Outside to the front a large garden set out in gravel and specimen planting including tree ferns, planted palms and hedging sits behind electric gates and offers generous off street parking with the potential to create further garden space while to the rear and upstairs there are a series of stunning outdoor spaces including a zen courtyard garden accessed from all the bedrooms, sun terrace off the drawing room and central atrium connecting dining area and drawing room which has the unusual benefit of a double height gallery space through one of its glass walls.
