With spectacular gardens that can be accessed from almost every room and a light-filled interior, this Donnybrook home is a special find.


Located just outside Donnybrook village in a quiet cul-de-sac, 5 Greenfield Crescent is a spacious and light-filled home, with generously-sized rooms giving plenty of space for a family. Electronic gates open up to provide secure parking space, and the landscaping ensures privacy for the house.

Its beautiful garden is south-facing, and has been carefully tended over the years to a high standard. Wisteria with stunning white flowers grows on the house itself, while neat hedging and mature trees make the gardens a real treat to walk around and enjoy. The beds feature many flowering plants including hydrangeas, lavender, lilies and lilac.

Inside, a large entrance hall provides a calming welcome, with large tiles emphasising this generous space, and the soft neutrals of this area set the tone for the tastefully tonal colour scheme throughout.

A self-contained one bedroom apartment is accessed through this hall, which would be ideal for those who live with older parents or have independent young adults, or a live-in au pair. It also has a separate entrance from the outside, as well as its own kitchen, bathroom and living room.

The living and dining room has oak flooring, with an impressive bay window that allows light to pour in. A limestone fireplace and French doors leading to an outdoor patio also ensure this room is at the heart of the home.

A separate sitting room also has double doors that lead out onto the beautiful rear garden, as does the kitchen, ensuring the indoor is well connected to the spectacular exterior. The kitchen is also a generous size, perfect for a busy family. It is fitted out with integrated Neff appliances, and a utility room off the kitchen provides space for laundry and storage.

Upstairs, there are four large bedrooms, each with French doors that lead out to a first-floor balcony that overlooks the garden — so you are really connected to the garden wherever you go in the house.

The master bedroom has extensive built-in wardrobes, and its en suite has a bath, shower and steam room, and a double sink.

Situated close to UCD, St Vincent’s hospital, RTÉ, and schools including St Michael’s College, The Teresian School, Colaiste Eoin & Iosagan, Gonzaga and Muckross Park, this is a very desirable area. It is also close to the city centre, and close to many bus routes.
