5 bedroom house for sale

DNG is delighted to present Rivendell to the market for the first time since its completion in c.1996. This impressive family home was constructed by Century Homes and boasts light filled accommodation of approx. 284 Sq M and gardens of approx. 0.85 of an acre. The owners have thoroughly enjoyed almost 3 decades in the home raising their family and making wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. The spacious reception rooms and large bedrooms are ideal for growing families that are looking for a substantial family home with generous gardens and a convenient location close to a number of villages and highly regarded schools.

The spacious accommodation comprises an impressive reception hall with gallery landing and two storey vaulted ceiling. The hall boasts reclaimed timber flooring that flows throughout the ground floor, the maple wood flooring was salvaged from the Sheriff Street sorting office when it was being refurbished in the mid 1990's.
To the left of the hall is the first of 4 reception rooms, this bay windowed, dual aspect living room overlooks the front and side gardens, it features a log burning stove and very pleasant views of the large front garden. To the right of the hall is the home office or study, it could easily be used as a fifth bedroom if requirements dictated. Behind the study is the second reception, this larger lounge is dual aspect and enjoys views of the back and side gardens, it features a raised fireplace with wood storage on either side. Between the lounge and the kitchen, you have the formal dining room with French patio doors that lead you out onto a very large patio area that is an ideal outdoor dining space. To the left of the dining room is the kitchen, with its selection of cabinets, lots of counter space for food preparation and a generously sized island for informal dining. Off the kitchen is the utility/boot room with further storage and a second sink. Through the utility room is the playroom/den. This 4th reception room is ideal for younger family members given its position on the opposite side of the house to the formal lounge area. This dual aspect reception room gives access to the rear garden through French patio doors and enjoys views of the front garden as well. Above this reception room is the 4th bedroom with an en-suite shower room. This space could suit extended family members or an au-pair as a self-contained apartment. If a more open plan layout was designed the layout of the kitchen, dining and lounge area could easily be remodelled into one large space which is more akin to the modern architect designs that are available today.

On the first floor you have an impressive gallery landing with 3 very large double bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has a superb en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobe, while bedrooms 2 and 3 have fitted wardrobes. A family bathroom with separate bath and shower completes the accommodation.

Rivendell's gardens have been carefully designed by the current owners and have been maturing for almost 30 years and feature a wonderful selection of well stocked flower beds, shrubs, hedges and trees. A gravel drive sweeps through the large lawn and provides lots of parking to the front of the house. To the right hand side of the house there is ample room for a garage if one was desired, (subject to P.P.). The rear garden boasts a flagstone patio area across the entire width of the house and has held numerous family gatherings through the years. The rear garden also features mature hedges that divide the garden into a number of excellent spaces. The more formal gardens with manicured lawn are immediately off the patio area. The patio gives access to a detached workshop and garden storage area, gorgeous cherry blossom trees add colour to this superb outdoor dining space. Beyond the first set of hedges, you have another lawn area with mature trees, over the years this has been used as a football pitch, playground and even campsite for their children during the summer holidays. At the end of the garden is a third area which boasts raised vegetable runs with a large selection of vegetables that includes strawberries, carrots and potatoes.

Rivendell is positioned on Ballybride Road in Rathmichael, a highly regarded location that enjoys a peaceful rural setting. Within a few minutes’ drive you have the bustling villages of Shankill, Dalkey, Killiney, Cabinteely and Bray Town Centre. A selection of schools such as Rathmichael National School, John Scotus and St Gerard's are very close by. Dundrum Town Centre is just over 11km away, the Luas is just 2.5km away, the Dart 1.9km, Dublin City 16km and Dublin Airport is just a 32 minute drive away. For the golfers you have Old Conna, Bray, Dun Laoghaire and Powerscourt to choose from, all of which are just minutes away. For the more energetic the Wicklow Mountains with their 100's of kilometers of guided walks are also very convenient to the property. Rathmichael is a very popular location for families of all sizes and enjoys a lower housing density than most of south county Dublin.

Personal inspection of this impressive family home is a must to appreciate the light filled interiors, spacious reception rooms and gorgeous gardens.
