The address of Woodfield is Westminster Road when in fact it is on a very short cul-de-sac, off that long road, and just a few minutes’ walk from the village. So the private, quiet location will be a plus for buyers who are in the market for a large family home in Foxrock.

The detached redbrick was built by its owners in the 1990s in a period style and it’s a well-kept, bright family home with five bedrooms and three additional rooms in the attic. It is spread over 345sq m (3,713sq ft) – with an attached garage – and the garden is a wide strip along the back and to the side where there is a slightly forlorn-looking tennis court.

When they were building the double-fronted house the owners kept the layout simple and family friendly: to the left of the wide hall is a study, and to the right a living/diningroom that opens into the kitchen which to the rear of the house. This then opens into a small family room. There is a good-sized utility room.

Upstairs, the largest of the five double bedrooms is a suite with a dressingroom and bathroom. Two of the other bedrooms have en suites and there is a family bathroom.

Inside, the good-sized entrance hall, and the roomy upper landing give a feeling of space while outside the mature trees and hedging surrounding the property give a sense of privacy.

For a house of its age Woodfield doesn’t feel dated, the John Daly kitchen with its traditional timber units and stone worktops has aged well – although the slate floor may not appeal to new owners, who may also opt to update the bathrooms.

If new owners don’t need it for parking, there is the potential to do something with the attached garage which is also accessed from the hall in the house.

There is off-street parking for several cars. Woodfield is for sale through Lisney, seeking €1.95 million.
