There is a sought after sunny south facing rear garden and the panoramic sea views across to Howth from its elevated position are truly breath-taking.

The property enjoys road frontage of approximately 21m (70ft) and there is secure gated off street parking for numerous cars in the front garden.

Briefly the accommodation comprises an entrance porch that opens into the generous reception hall which in turn leads into the sitting room, the family room and the dining room, all facing south and enjoying the outlook of the rear garden. An en suite double bedroom, a guest w.c., a kitchen, utility and garage conclude the accommodation at this level. Upstairs there is a landing with excellent storage that opens to four further bedrooms, a family bathroom and one of the bedrooms benefits from an en suite. The views across to Howth from this level are truly spectacular.

Craigfield comes to the market in excellent decorative order throughout having been wonderfully maintained over the many enjoyable years that this family have been in residence.

The sunny south facing garden is a particular feature and the views that the property offers really speak for themselves. The property offers vast potential for further extension to the side and out into the rear garden if so desired subject to the necessary Planning Permissions.

The position of this quality home will be of major interest to those trying to get a foothold in the highly regarded much sought after Dalkey location. This coastal town offers a wide range of local and specialist shops, cafes, delicatessens, excellent pubs and some of the finest restaurants in South County Dublin. The surrounding is well served by an excellent selection of primary and secondary schools including Loreto Abbey Dalkey, Harold Boys, Castle Park and the Harold National School. Dalkey DART Station is literally around the corner and this services the city centre as well as many secondary boys’ schools with regular ease. Dalkey also caters for many recreational and leisure facilities with Cuala GAA and Dalkey United situated close by as well as golf, tennis and hockey clubs. There are also many fitness centres and the tranquil scenic walks over Killiney/Dalkey hills and along the seafront are particularly popular.
