Delgany window of opportunity
The Elms, Knockroe, Delgany, Co Wicklow
Clever use of Velux windows maximises the sense of light and space in the two dormer detached homes that comprise The Elms, an enclave near Delgany and Greystones that delivers a taste of rural life in the sought-after north Wicklow commuter belt.
Each of the block-built properties, which cost from €775,000 apiece, has 2,496 sq ft of living space, including four bedrooms.
The homes are approached by driveways with golden-flint gravel and charcoal kerbs behind a timber gate wired for electrification.
Professionally landscaped gardens with planted shrubbery set off the clean white exteriors and their deep-faced granite windowsills.
Inside, skylights showcase the vaulted entrance hall and the solid oak staircase.
The living room/lounge has Junkers solid oak flooring, a closed box fireplace with a Tenbury insert stove and two windows with panoramic country views.
Also on this level is a kitchen/diner with solid painted kitchen units, granite worktops, Marfil tiles, as well as a separate utility room, a separate pantry with shelves and double doors that lead to the paved patio.
There are two bedrooms on this floor, one of which could be used instead as an office, study or playroom.
The master ensuite has four Velux roof windows, a bespoke walk-in wardrobe and dressing room, and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath and a power shower with Kristal doors.
The second bedroom also has an ensuite, walk-in wardrobe and Velux skylight roof windows. All of the bedrooms have Stainsafe bleach-cleanable carpets.
Both properties have a building energy rating of A2 thanks to cutting-edge heating technology, high levels of Kingspan insulation in the walls, floors and roof, individual thermostats in each room and A-rated double-glazed Rationel windows.
An air-to-water heat pump from Nibe can reduce heating costs by as much as 75pc, which would come in handy for the underfloor heating for the ground floor.
The Elms is close to two bus stops and the small scheme has easy access to the main arterial M11/M50 route via the N11. Viewings will be held tomorrow, between 1pm and 2pm.
