This house in Donnybrook, with built-in sound system, is priced at €3 million

If you’ve ever dreamed of moving to Dublin 4, this luxurious house in Donnybrook (with security gates and built-in sound system) is worth a look


Located less than five kilometres from Dublin’s city centre, Donnybrook is one of the capital’s most reputable places to live. With its large Victorian and Edwardian houses, as well as speciality shops and restaurants, the neighbourhood oozes character and prestige.

Among the period properties here lies something more modern – namely 10 Greenfield Crescent. This light-filled, detached house was built in 2002 and is discreetly tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.

In addition to its five bedrooms and five bathrooms, there is a gym room, sauna and roof terrace.

Accommodation

This house in Donnybrook is nestled behind electronic security gates, behind which there is private parking for three-to-four cars. There is also a porch, lobby and entrance hallway (all of which are tiled, well-lit and spacious).

With five reception rooms, there is plenty of space to entertain. The living room has wide plank timber flooring, a feature fireplace with marble surround, as well as patio doors to the property’s side garden. Ceiling spotlights, earth-toned furnishings and its open-plan layout make the room feel warm and inviting.

From here, you can pass through to the formal dining area, where there is currently an eight-seater table, ceiling spotlights and chandelier. There are also speakers which connect to the property’s built-in Bang & Olufsen sound system (adding a wow-factor to any dinner party).

Elsewhere, the kitchen-cum-breakfast room boasts an extensive range of Bulthaup wall and floor units. Other features include a centre island with stainless steel worktop, integrated Miele cooker, microwave, fridge and dishwasher.

Again, there is ample seating and floor space here, making the house ideal for entertaining. What’s more, there is a TV point for cosy nights in. Located off the kitchen you will find a playroom (or home gym), a two-person infrared sauna, as well as a fully tiled shower room.

Upstairs

On the first floor, this Donnybrook house boasts five good-sized bedrooms, including a dual-aspect master bedroom with beautifully appointed ensuite. This master suite, which comes with built-in wardrobes, also grants access to the roof terrace.

Two of the property’s other bedrooms also have ensuite bathrooms, while an additional (recently refitted) family bathroom is located off the landing.

Meanwhile, back on the ground level, other miscellaneous features include a spacious garage, home office and secluded back garden with a large, paved patio.

This Donnybrook house at 10 Greenfield Crescent is on the market with Sherry Fitzgerald for €3,000,000.
