Edwardian with a modern-finish twist
Sereno, Elton Park, Sandycove
This double-fronted five-bedroom house measures 4,000 sq ft with nods to the Edwardian era in its red-brick finish, tri-panelled bay windows upstairs and down, and wooden gabling around the front door.
It is, of course, brand new, but these touches, along with the black ironmongery and gravelled front lawn add an old-fashioned feel.
Built over three storeys it has a 'builder's finish' which means there is work to do, but primarily of a cosmetic nature. It does have the advantage of the new owner choosing their own kitchen, flooring, tiling and fireplaces without being hemmed in by one or two choices from the developer. The builder is offering his services to project manage the remainder of the build for a negotiated sum.
Underfloor heating is fitted throughout and solar panels ensure the A2 BER rating is maintained. Inside, are two reception rooms in addition to the kitchen/family room which leads to a dining room at the rear which kicks out with a conservatory style room accessing the back garden. There is a WC, cloakroom and utility on this floor and the garden has been landscaped. Upstairs are four bedrooms on the first floor (three are ensuite) while the master has a walk in wardrobe also. The upper level houses a study, family/games room and the fifth bedroom with a bathroom here also.
There is off-street parking for two cars which can be securely kept behind the electronic gates. The price sought is €1.75m as seen. Dalkey is 1.1km while the DART station at Glenageary is under a kilometre.
