Ard Na Greine is situated on Ardeevin Road in Dalkey, which leads down to the sea. Set on an elevated half-acre site, its upper floor enjoys wonderful views.
The home is in good condition throughout, and has been well cared for by its current owners. It combines period reception rooms that are more formal, with contemporary spaces that feel relaxed.
The entrance hall is large and bright, with wooden flooring and two sash windows that make the space feel bright. The two front reception rooms, divided by sliding double doors, have marble fireplaces with marble hearths, ceiling coving and decorative stained-glass windows.
A modern family room to the side of the house is large and full of light thanks to its dual aspect and orangery-style roof. It also features built-in cabinets.
The open-plan kitchen is full of contemporary finishes, and has a door out to the rear patio. It combines neutral shades with timber flooring for a fresh feel. There is a freestanding gas range, and a built-in dishwasher, while a pantry and utility room provide ample storage. The breakfast room has high windows, and there is room to fit a large table.
There are five bedrooms in this house, including the attic which has been converted to a bedroom with en suite, featuring a wet room. The master bedroom has gorgeous views that look out to the sea, built-in wardrobes, and its own ensuite, while the other three bedrooms also have built-in wardrobes. A sixth room is currently used as a study, but could easily become another bedroom.
The house is set back from the road, with a long driveway that cuts through a large front lawn. A long rear garden provides plenty of outdoor space for this home. South-facing, it is full of beautiful planting, including mature shrubs and hedging. An extensive patio area provides space to sit and enjoy the outdoors, or even some al fresco dining or barbecues.
