DNG has the great pleasure of presenting Farniente to the market. This extraordinarily well-designed contemporary family home was completely remodelled in c.2015 and the very secluded gardens of approx. 1 acre have also been fully landscaped. The interiors of approximately 366 Sq M / 3940 Sq Ft are bright and extensive with impressive reception accommodation that open out onto stunning sun terraces that are ideally orientated to enjoy the sun all day long. One would not be faulted for thinking you had been transported to the Mediterranean whilst enjoying the most impressive views that this property enjoys.
The redesign was created by the highly regarded Greystoness architect Colum O'Broin and the beautifully appointed accommodation cannot fail to impress. An impressive solar gain from the floor to ceiling glass doors and windows throughout the house is complimented by polished porcelain tiles flowing seamlessly throughout the ground floor. The underfloor heating ensures they are sock friendly throughout the year. The bespoke kitchen and the built-in cabinetry throughout the house have been crafted by Newcastle Design.
The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with bespoke timber staircase and glass balustrade. The living room has a gas fire and enjoys a triple aspect, floating bay window seats offer a unique dimension to this very comfortable reception room. The hub of the home is the kitchen dining living area that opens out onto an expansive sun terrace with a view that will certainly draw the eyes regardless of the weather. Two feature gold quartz cut stone accent walls on either side of the open space give you a lovely sense of natural warmth. A large TV room is positioned away from the main living space thus allowing all generations within the family to have their own space. Off the hall is a Utility room and Guest WC. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a 4th bedroom which is currently in use as a home office. Off the bedroom is another room currently in use as a tack room but it could easily be converted to an en-suite if required.
At first floor level there are three very large double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom 3 also boasts an en-suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe. Another standout feature is the first-floor sun terraces accessed from bedrooms 2 and 3. The extra elevation provided by these terraces enhance the already gorgeous views.
Farniente is beautifully positioned on an elevated one-acre site within Kendalstown Rise. The gardens offer wonderful seclusion and enjoy the sunniest of aspects. The attention to detail continues with the garden landscaping. by award winning garden designer Frazer McDonagh of 'Rock and Waterscapes'. Winding paths cross well maintained lawns and lead you through the garden to a woodland area that boasts a small clearing with a timber gazebo. The 120-year-old Monterey Pine trees that pepper the property would not be out of place in the hills of the French Riviera overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Electric gates open onto a tarmac driveway bordered with granite stone walls topped with bush hammered granite capping stones. The driveway sweeps you around to the front of the property where there is ample parking for several cars. A second gazebo is perched at the top of a gravelled area with a water feature that creates a wonderfully calming ambience. The cut stone walls continue to border two stunning sun terraces that enjoy a very sunny south westerly aspect. The sun terraces enjoy some of the finest panoramic views that Co. Wicklow has to offer. During the day the impressive sea views draw your eyes along the coast to Wicklow Head and at night the lights of Delgany and as far as Wicklow Town are clearly visible in the distance. At night the gardens come to life through a selection of well-placed spotlights and linear lighting highlighting the sun terraces.
The location is wonderfully private yet positioned in a well-established development of detached homes on similar sized grounds. The N11 is very accessible from the Glenview Hotel turn off or through the village of Delgany. Within a 2.5km radius you have a wonderful selection of schools both primary and secondary, sport and leisure facilities and a host of wonderful woodland walks that are sure to be enjoyed all year round.
