Description

Glenhest is a fine 5-bedroom, double-fronted, semi-detached property dating back to 1890 standing proud on La Touche Road, mere footsteps away from the seafront and a short 2-minute walk to the vibrant main street of Greystones town. The property also has the benefit of town centre zoning, which would allow for commercial use of part of the property, if desired – as a medical or dental practice for example.
Elegant reception rooms can be found on either side of the impressively spacious and bright hallway, which showcases an original hardwood staircase. These rooms - namely the Drawing room and the Living room - are beautifully proportioned, oozing grandeur and sophistication with high ceilings, original coving, picture rails, open fireplaces and a feature box bay window.
A large kitchen cum dining room/family room spans the entire width of the house and has direct access out to the well planted rear garden with outhouses. To the front there is a cobblelock driveway with off-street parking and a wide side-gated entrance.
An excellent balance of accommodation exists throughout Glenhest with generously proportioned bedrooms, including a sprawling master bedroom complete with dressing room (the size of a single bedroom), shower room, separate wc and attic rooms. The elegant interior, which measures approx. 241 sq m could benefit from some modernisation.
Greystones recently became a gold medal winner in the Global Most Liveable Community Awards 2021. This town really does offer the best of both worlds with a state-of-the-art Marina, numerous beaches, forests, mountains and lush rolling countryside whilst also being renowned as a bustling, vibrant commuter town with a Dart train station, an Aircoach service to Dublin Airport, and bus links serving Dublin city.
Rarely does a property of this calibre and size come to the market so close to the main street of Greystones. An enviable lifestyle is on offer as the convenience here is second to none where one can literally walk, in a few short minutes, to public transport, schools, supermarkets, speciality stores, coffee shops, bars, award-winning restaurants, supermarkets, sports clubs and beaches.
