Full Description

An instantly appealing detached and deceptively large dormer bungalow residence, Valentia is located on the highly regarded Castlepark Road in the heart of Sandycove, one of the most sought after areas in South County Dublin. It is close to the seafront, Bullock Harbour and the Forty Foot as well as to the villages of Glasthule, Sandycove and Dalkey.

Valentia, which is located on the western side of Castlepark Road, oozes character with its double fronted, double bow windows and its beautifully maintained sunny gardens that extend to in excess of 0.25 acre, all securely protected behind electric gates and offering safe off street parking for numerous cars. The professionally landscaped gardens are a particular feature of the property and offer immense seclusion and privacy, both front and rear, provided by high mature hedging, shrubbery and trees. The rear garden of approximately 31m (101ft) in length benefits from a sunny south westerly aspect virtually all day long and is set out in large architect designed patio areas, ideal for al fresco dining, with the elevated lawned area segregated further back. All the brickwork in the patio areas was salvaged from the old railway station in Baltimore, Co. Cork. A large hot tub is set to the side of the patio which can be enjoyed all year round in every kind of weather. The patios and gardens are also wired for a variety of floodlighting resources and a wall based water feature.

This much loved family home offers bright generously proportioned accommodation extending to approximately 270sq.m (2,905sq.ft) that briefly comprises a reception hall opening into a drawing/dining room with double doors opening into a study. Next is the excellent sitting room which is of impressive proportions that opens out into the sunny garden and into the kitchen/breakfast room to the side of the property. After this is a utility room, guest w.c. with two double bedrooms concluding the accommodation at this level. Upstairs there is a family bathroom, three double bedrooms with the master having an en-suite bathroom through a walk in dressing area. Downstairs to the side of the property is a garage/workshop with double folding timber doors opening into the driveway and a pedestrian gate to the rear opening into the garden.

The location of this excellent very well-maintained family home, is second to none and is on the sunny western side of Castlepark Road.
