Park House is a most attractive, double fronted detached home, built in a period style but constructed circa 2001, ensuring that this is a home compatible for modern day living. This handsome red bricked property is flooded with natural light throughout and is finished to an impeccable standard. All the charm of a bye gone era to include such features as bay windows with window seating, ceiling roses and high ceilings combined with the modern convenience of underfloor hearting at both ground floor and first floor levels create a wonderful ambience throughout this special home.
Park House occupies an immensely private site of approximately 0.3 acres with manicured gardens encompassing the property and enjoying that all important south orientation to the rear. Well-appointed living accommodation extends to 293 sq m / 3,161 sq ft approximately and has been designed to take full advantage of the prevailing light as it transitions throughout the day with a key feature undoubtedly being the dual aspect that is to be enjoyed in almost every room in this fine family home.
Granite steps approach the double front doors that open into the entrance hall which flows into a delightful octagonal shaped vestibule. To the right of the entrance hall there is a study with French doors opening out onto a West facing patio and to the left of the hall are the elegant interconnecting reception rooms ideal for entertaining. The drawing room overlooking the front and side gardens has the benefit of a wonderful bay window complete with window seating and attractive mahogany fireplace with gas coal effect fire. Double doors lead through to the rear reception room with matching fireplace and French doors opening onto the rear garden. The kitchen / breakfast / dining room is fitted with bespoke, hand painted cream timber units complemented with marble countertops, a built-in seating booth and table provide a lovely space for morning coffee, the dining area with feature bay window and a French door opens onto a large, decked patio area. Located off the back hallway are a guest wc and utility room. There is door out to the boiler house which is built in the same style as the main house and provides additional storage space.
A magnificent staircase with mahogany handrail ascends to the first-floor landing with an attractive leaded picture window over the half landing allowing wonderful natural light to pour into the house. To the left of the large landing are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the right of the landing is the principal bedroom with a bay window overlooking the rear garden and a particularly large ensuite shower room. Currently what is used as a dressing room could very easily be reconfigured as a fourth bedroom. Off the landing, there is a linen room providing excellent storage and a staircase leads up to two attic storage rooms with velux windows and a door out on to the roof area where we find a viewing gallery which is a little piece of heaven.
The mature and landscaped wrap around gardens, planted with specimen trees, shrub and flower borders are undoubtedly a noteworthy feature of Park House. Sitting proudly on a site of 0.3 acres approximately, an electric gate opens to the gravelled front garden where excellent off-street parking for several cars is catered for. Should additional living accommodation be required there is ample room on either side of the property to extend (subject to planning permission) with East and West orientations.
The private rear garden enjoys an enviable south orientation and is a natural habitat for children to play in. An Indian sandstone patio area with red brick fireplace provides an ideal area for cosy evening entertaining whilst a decked patio spanning the width of the property is perfect for 'Al Fresco' dining.
Park House is conveniently located on Silchester Park in the highly desirable suburb of Glenageary. A vast selection of amenities and recreational facilities are literally on your doorstep such as Glenageary Tennis and Sandycove Tennis Clubs, Killiney Hill and the People's Park.
