Thu, Mar 7, 2013, 00:00

CABINTEELY: €820,000:St Gabriel’s is a child-friendly estate built in 2000 by Shannon Homes in the grounds of St Gabriel’s Hospital. It is a mix of apartments, semidetached houses and larger detached properties. Number 15 is a large double bay-fronted, detached, five-bedroom family home.

Laid out over three floors, it has about 242sq/m of space. The asking price is €820,000 and Sherry FitzGerald is handling the sale.

The bay-windowed living room is to the right of the front hall and features a sandstone fireplace with an open fire fuelled by gas. Double doors lead to the dining room and another set of doors opens into a lovely conservatory.

There is another reception room, a family room on the ground floor. The house has neutral Farrow Ball tones throughout.

In the kitchen, gloss units have customised solid iroko countertops. Off the kitchen is a utility room.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms. One good-sized single features a lovely window seat set into the bay window. The guest bedroom has an en suite bathroom.

The master bedroom spans the width of the second floor. It has a walk-in wardrobe and a large en suite shower room.

The room is a haven for the current owners and with a good sofa could make a proper suite. Alternatively, it would make a great den or play room for kids.

The back garden has a southwesterly aspect. There is gated side access on both sides of the house.

Set in mature grounds, St Gabriel’s is an estate that oozes community spirit. The kids all play together in the communal area.

Cabinteely village has been transformed in recent years and boasts buzzing neighbourhood eateries and hip milk bars – a suburban village atmosphere to rival Ranelagh’s.
