Leaving Cabinteely village along Brennanstown Road towards Glenamuck Road, you are instantly transported to the countryside. Big detached houses sit well back from the road, many hidden behind high gates. Rathmore is one such property. The dormer bungalow is hidden from view behind high granite walls and is accessed via a private road with a stone archway.

Set on 0.4 of an acre, the grounds are beautifully kept, with mature specimen trees, including a 450-year old cedar of Lebanon, clipped hedging and an artificial putting green located just off the garden room.

Inside, the house is distinctly period in feel and looks like it has been in situ for longer than its 30 years thanks to its windows with marginal bars, extensive wainscot panelling and architraves.

Chimneypiece

The entrance hall is home to a fine chimneypiece of grey marble with pillared supports and came from a Georgian property on Harcourt Street. Double doors to the right lead through to the drawing-room, a sunken space that is home to another gorgeous antique fireplace. From here French windows open out to a south-facing terrace running the width of the property which can also be accessed from the main bedroom.

A set of steps lead through double doors to the formal diningroom, another good-sized room that can easily accommodate a table for 10 or 12 people.

Another pair of doors opens through to the kitchen and on into the garden room.This is where the owners do most of their living. There is a cosy family room off the kitchen with an Arts and Crafts style fire surround, and to its rear is a separate pantry and roomy utility.

Accommodation wing

Three of the property’s five bedrooms are on the ground floor, in an accommodation wing left of the entrance hall. The main suite, situated at the end of the corridor, includes a bright dressingroom and sizeable ensuite. The two other double bedrooms have box bay windows and are identical.

To the rear of the kitchen is a staircase leading to two more bedrooms, both en suite, and a separate study. There is also access to the loft via a pull-down ladder. The house, measuring 334sq m (3,600sq ft), is seeking €1.675 million through agent Lisney.

Willow Lodge, the other property on the private road, another a five-bed detached and 325sq m (3,500sq ft) in size, is also for sale. It is seeking €1.25 million through agent Knight Frank.
