01st Aug 2021
With bookshelves that need a ladder to reach the top and a cosy spot to read, it’s every book-lover’s dream.
A recently-built home in Kilternan, South Dublin, The Old Yard is a large family home with a number of enviable features.
You enter the home into a long, bright hallway with a vaulted ceiling. To the left of this space is one of several reception rooms. It has a marble fireplace and vaulted ceiling, but its most eye-catching feature is a bookcase that is the full height of the tall room. A mezzanine level space provides yet more shelving, as well as a reading room to enjoy your books peacefully.
There is another living space with large windows looking out to the garden, while adjacent is a spacious dining room. The kitchen and breakfast room has oak units and granite countertops, as well as a Belfast sink and a breakfast bar. There is a utility room and separate pantry off this space.
A grand curved staircase leads you to the first floor, where the four bedrooms are located. The main bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, an ensuite, as well as built-in wardrobes and a small balcony.
The second bedroom has an oak floor and vaulted ceiling, and the third has a built-in wardrobe which incorporates a desk unit. The fourth bedroom is used by the current owners as a home office, and there is also a family bathroom on this level.
Outside, the well-sized garden has a large patio area for seating, while there is also a lawn bordered by beds planted with a mixture of shrubs and flowers.
