Full Description

For Sale on the instruction of Aiden Murphy, Receiver.

An outstanding modern, detached residence enjoying beautifully proportioned light filled accommodation overlooking private landscaped grounds (approx. 0.4 acre / 0.17 ha), ideally positioned on the south western side of the prestigious Brighton Road.

On entering the limestone floored entrance hall the attention to detail on both design and selection of materials in the original refurbishment is immediately apparent. While the house has been well maintained over the years since the refurbishment the property would now benefit from some further updating.

The accommodation extends to an impressive 497 sq.m / 5,353 sq.ft with the principal living accommodation running along the rear of the property providing a sunny south westerly aspect opening onto a large patio providing delightful views of the tranquil grounds & the Dublin Mountains beyond. The superbly appointed kitchen / breakfast room combines effortlessly with a large living room providing a wonderful living space.

The accommodation at ground floor level is complimented by a housekeeper’s studio to ensure no eventuality is left unaccounted for. Three further reception rooms, dining room, generous utility room and two WCs complete the accommodation at ground floor level.

On the first floor there are three large bedrooms (all en-suite) including a magnificent master suite with a luxurious ensuite wet room complete with feature bathtub and generous dressing room.

Just when you think you have seen it all off the first floor landing there is a hidden roof garden with superb views and a hot tub to sink into after a tiring day.
The accommodation is completed by two further bedrooms (both with ensuite dressing rooms) on the second floor.

Craughwell is situated in the heart of the leafy suburb of Foxrock enjoying a peaceful setting on the much envied Brighton Road and is but a short walk to the village with select shops and restaurants. The property is just two minutes’ drive from the M50 and is within easy access of the Luas at Carrickmines. Amenities in the local area are plentiful with numerous golf clubs, local shops and restaurants as well as the Carrickmines Lawn Tennis club, Leopardstown Racecourse and for those with shopping in mind Dundrum Town Centre is within easy access.
