4 Bed Detached House 160 m² / 1722 ft² For Sale F


Location is the most important factor to consider when buying a home. Next, many say, is aspect, followed by size and accommodation. With this home we have it all. Located minutes from the Luas, UCD, Dundrum Town Centre, Stillorgan Village, Kilmacud Crokes, several schools including Mount Anville, Our Lady’s Grove, Taney, St Benildus, St Laurence’s and St Raphaela's, this home couldn't be more ideal. There is nothing better than coming home to a garden full of sun and ‘Tara’ is a real treat from this point of view. While the garden enjoys all day sun, it hits the patio outside the dining room from afternoon through to sunset, making this home an absolute delight.

Inside the accommodation is well proportioned. The porch and hall offer an area brightened by the large window on the half landing. A large living room to the right is complemented by a generous dining room at the back and a converted garage to the left. The kitchen overlooks the sunny back garden and benefits from a bright utility room extension with a skylight window.

All four bedrooms on the first floor are double in size and have fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room and there is also a large family bathroom on this level.

Other amenities close by that make this home special are the 32 acres of parkland at Deer Park in neighbouring Mount Merrion, more open space at UCD, regular bus routes, the M50 just over 1 mile away and Airfield, a large urban farm, estate and amenity nearby where annual family membership is available.
