Cul-de-sac haven in Glenageary for €1.495m

Bright and spacious Victorian on Silchester Road

 

A four-bedroom house in a small enclave off Silchester Road in Glenageary, Co Dublin, has been a comfortable family home since it was built 15 years ago.

One of six detached houses built since 1996 on land that belonged to Rosenberg, a large Victorian on Silchester, it was named Andromeda after Prefab Sprout’s song Andromeda Heights.

Now Andromeda, 1 Silchester Downs, Silchester Road, Glenageary, Co Dublin, a 251sq m (2,701sq ft) detached house built in 2001, is for sale for €1.495 million through Sherry FitzGerald.

Several parking spaces

Electronic gates open into the small cul-de-sac development off Silchester Road, about halfway between Adelaide Road and Glenageary Road. Andromeda is the first house on the right: more gates open into a cobblelocked front garden, where there’s parking for several cars.

The front hall is wide and bright, double height over the staircase. Three bright reception rooms and the large kitchen/breakfast room, all floored with maple, open off it. On the right of the hall is a modest-sized reception room at the front of the house currently used as a study.

Open fireplace

Behind it is a large drawing room with seven windows at the back. It has an open fireplace with a stone surround.There’s a smaller livingroom with a matching fireplace off the left of the front hall.

The kitchen, divided from the dining area by a breakfast bar, has a tiled floor, cream units, granite countertops and Neff appliances; a Stanley range is set into a brick surround inset with colourful mosaic tiles. There is a utility room off the kitchen; a garage, used for storage, could be converted to more living space. Three sets of French doors open from the kitchen/dining area into the back garden.

Upstairs, four bedrooms – all doubles, two en-suite – open off the gallery-style landing looking over the front hall.

The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and a tiled en suite with a double shower. The tiled family bathroom has a large bath.

Outside, the wide back garden is laid out mainly in lawn with a patio running directly beside the house, and another patio space in one corner. An arch cut into a hedge at the side of the house opens into a secret garden with yet another patio.

Linden, a house built 15 years ago on land nearby (on the other side of Rosenberg) sold earlier this year for a little bit less than its asking price of €1.495 million.
