With five bedrooms and 0.9 acres of land, this home has plenty of desirable features, including a separate apartment.

Situated just a short walk from the centre of Foxrock village, this architecturally-designed house sits at the end of a long, sweeping driveway, behind electronic gates.

As you enter, floor to ceiling windows ensure the hallway is bright, and this space also features pale oak wide plank flooring. It leads to a boot room, cloakroom and utility room, giving this house plenty of storage space. There are several reception rooms on this level, including a drawing room, TV room and dining room, as well as a home office.

The kitchen and breakfast room has bespoke units, as well as Corian worktops. A large central island acts as a focal point for this room, featuring a double sink and a larder cupboard. The kitchen has several built-in appliances, including an integrated fridge, dishwasher, eye-level oven and microwave, as well as a concealed extractor. There is also a garden room off this space.

There is one bedroom on the ground floor, and the remaining four are located upstairs. The main bedroom has an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, while one of the other bedrooms has access to a balcony.

Outside, the south-facing gardens have been beautifully planted by landscape designer Damien Keane with a Moroccan theme, including a black limestone path and several patio areas including one that is partially covered, perfect for al fresco dining, or simply relaxing outdoors.
