With six bedrooms and large gardens, this dormer bungalow is surprisingly spacious and luxuriously finished. 


Set back from the road at the end of a tree-lined driveway, Adelaide is a large dormer bungalow set in large gardens near Fockrock village. A double garage provides plenty of room for parking, while a portico provides shelter to the entranceway, leading to the double hall doors.

An elegant cantilevered staircase with a walnut handrail is one of the first things you see when you enter the home, and there is a cloakroom and WC located off the hallway. The main living room is dual aspect, making the most of the views of the extensive garden, and also has French doors leading out to the garden. Its tasteful palette of neutral colours is continued throughout the house.

A large sun room is one of the most impressive in the house. With a south-west orientation, it has a double-glazed room that floods the room with light. The kitchen is spacious with white, country-style units and a dining area to one end.

There is a window seat, floor-to-ceiling storage along one wall, as well as a large island with a granite countertop, perfect for cooking preparation. A Rangemaster six plate gas cooker, a prep sink and an Electrolux freezer are all ideal for keen cooks, and French doors in this room also lead out to the garden.

The exterior space is definitely a real feature of this house. There is a patio area that’s perfect for barbecues and outdoor dining, and a kitchen garden to the back features a greenhouse and a mini-orchard with two rows of fruit trees.

Foxrock is a desirable location, with many restaurants and specialist food shops. There are many schools nearby, including Hollypark Boys and Girls National School, St. Brigid’s Boys and Girls National School, Blackrock College, Mount Anville, Loreto Foxrock, St. Andrew’s College, Lycée Français d’Irlande and Nord Anglia International School. The N11 and M50 provide good access to the rest of the city, and the Carrickmines Luas stop is just a short walk away.
