6 Bed Detached House 233 m² / 2508 ft² For Sale A3



Occupying a prominent corner site, on this highly-regarded road in the heart of Knocklyon, this substantially extended, “A3” rated, detached family home is presented to the market in luxurious, turnkey condition.

Truly “a new house in an old shell” the property has undergone a full and extensive renovation while a newly built two story side extension has created what is now, effectively, “two properties in one”.

Boasting a very large rear garden and conveniently located within walking distance of some excellent schools and amenities, this property is sure to appeal to any growing family looking to settle in the Knocklyon area or alternatively a family with au pair/elderly parent or those looking for a clear “home and income opportunity”.

The accommodation of the main house comprises an entrance hall/sunroom, hall with guest shower room/guest WC off, a large dual-aspect L-shaped open plan living/dining/kitchen and a utility room. Upstairs comprises a landing, four fine sized double bedrooms, master ensuite and a family bathroom.

The accommodation of the two storey extension comprises - a dual aspect, open plan kitchen/living space with storage off while upstairs comprises two fine double bedrooms and a family bathroom. (* It is important to note that the extension is directly accessible from the main house but also benefits from it’s own separate entrance to the side and therefore can, as advised, act as a separate self-contained unit or could, potentially, be easily incorporated into the main body of the house through minor works to create more living space and transform the main house from a 4 bedroom into a 6 bedroom property).

To the front the property is set behind security gates with an adjoining garage while to the rear the newly landscaped garden is set in lawn with a large patio area and is very private while boasting a sunny orientation ideal for enjoying the evening sun.
