Churches Estate Agents are delighted to present “Silverwood”, a beautiful detached four bedroom bungalow on 0.5 acres of verdant land, situated just outside the desirable village of Enniskerry.
Extending to 1,528 sq ft, the property has been thoroughly modernised and smartly redesigned in recent years to present a gorgeous home for young families or downsizers alike.
A magical driveway brings you from the gated entrance, through the 0.5 acre site of lush green land and across a private bridge over a small flowing stream. The house looks out across this green valley, a unique moment of bliss outside the rush of the city. The gravelled driveway provides for ample parking and a small astroturf corner is currently a kids play area.
Entering the house via glass double doors, you first come to the spacious, open-plan kitchen and living room. Laid with bright white ash laminate flooring and a modern neutral decor throughout, the house is in perfect walk-in condition.
The stunning newly-fitted kitchen in neutral ‘Shaker’ style includes full-height wall units for storage and built-in NEFF double ovens. Integrated appliances including washing machine, dryer and dishwasher, under a ‘silver’ granite worktops. The centrepiece of the room is a vast central ‘silver’ granite island unit with integrated NEFF induction hob and 2 wine fridges. A second granite island extension provides a beautiful dining area with seating for 6/7.
The adjoining living area is the perfect snug for family entertainment. The whole room is flooded with light from multiple large windows to the South, East and West overlooking the garden. The room is also lit with recessed ceiling spotlights and perimeter rope-light uplighting.
Leading from the living room, the white ash laminate flooring continues throughout the hallways and four bedrooms. First a generous double guest bedroom with ensuite shower room and built-in storage. The next room is another spacious double or twin bedroom, with double aspect windows to garden. A further smaller room would make a great single, nursery or home office. The hallway is lit by a skylight and with recessed ceiling spotlights and floor mounted blue ‘night’ lighting.
A second, large hallway is part walk-in wardrobe – dressing room just off the master bedroom and leading to the main family bathroom with WC, double sinks and large walk-in glass framed shower with rain shower head. The master bedroom itself is a vast suite in the newer wing of the property. An array of double aspect windows, height ceilings and skylight bring in plentiful light. There is ample space for a giant king sized bed and the room is complete with a luxurious roll top free-standing bath.
Overall the house extends to 142 sq m (1,528 sq ft) on a site of 0.5 acres. The house has been recently rewired and damp proofed with state-of-the-art ‘Electrico Osmotic Damp Proofing’, external insulation for energy efficiency and mechanical ventilation of kitchen and bathrooms. The oil fired heating has been upgraded with modern thermostat and hot water heating on a digital ‘Hub’ system.
A large attic space provides ample storage – and could have potential for future conversion (S.T.P.P.).
‘Silverwood’ is located less than 5 minutes walk from the centre of Enniskerry village, a gorgeous local centre with a mixture of popular pubs, cafés, delicatessens and boutique shops. The world-renown Powerscourt Estate is just a short journey away, with hotel, spa & 47 acres of public gardens.
Local schooling includes two primaries and 3 creches. Top secondary schools are just a short bus or drive into Bray or South Dublin. This is an excellent neighbourhood for young families.
