Step inside No. 7 Carrickmines Garth, a substantial and sophisticated five bedroom detached residence which has been meticulously maintained and upgraded by the present owners since first built in 2000. No. 7 enjoys a quiet setting tucked away at the top of a cul-de-sac off the main avenue in this prestigious development, Carrickmines Wood. Once you turn the corner of the cul-de-sac, the kerb appeal is instantly evident. Perfectly laid gravel bordered by granite cobblestones to the front provides parking for three cars, while the external presentation provides privacy with mature trees, hedging and fenced on both sides.
Superbly appointed and stylishly decorated accommodation offers an excellent balance of living and bedroom accommodation in a practical internal layout. The bright accommodation enjoys an excellent flow and opens out at the back with French doors leading to the west facing garden creating a seamless connection. This is without doubt a comfortable family home which provides for a relaxed family lifestyle within an open, natural layout extending to 223 sq.m (2,400 sq.ft) that is both comfortable and smart at the same time.
Upon entering, the hallway is very inviting with a striking double height ceiling with gallery landing and light beaming through the large windows above making this area incredibly bright. To the right of the hallway lies an exceptionally large drawing room, luxuriously decorated with silk French pleated curtains and a large limestone fireplace with open fire to the centre of the room. Interconnecting glass doors leads to the dining room with solid oak wide plank flooring however currently laid out as an office cum music room. There are additional windows to both sides and double glass doors which lead out to the rear garden and allow plenty of light into this room from the west facing sunshine to the rear. The open plan kitchen/dining room to the rear of the property is a very large area which provides versatility to allow for a family space with the current owners opting for a large dining area which leads into the kitchen. The kitchen area complete with hand painted SieMatic kitchen has also had some tweaks which allow for more kitchen units complete with kitchen island providing additional cupboards and counter space. A large utility room with access to the side passage is off the kitchen and this can also give way to the family room to the front of the property also accessed off the hallway. The family room is well fitted with hand-painted desk and storage unit providing excellent cupboard and shelving space.
Rising to first floor the gallery landing gives way to each of the five bedrooms. Four of the five bedrooms are doubles with the principal bedroom exceptionally spacious and all boasting built-in wardrobes. Two bedrooms boast recently refurbished bathrooms suites and the recently renovated main bathroom suite completes the accommodation on this level.
