Number 5 Butterfield Crescent is a five-bedroom family home on a mature road in Rathfarnham, Dublin 14.
Extended and upgraded by the owners, the 181sqm (1,948sq ft) property has a family-friendly layout.
A utility/play room to the side of the house has its own door access and is accessible from both the family room and the rear garden.
The current owners use this space for storing bikes and sports gear, leaving the entrance hall clutter-free.
The kitchen was extended and modernised in 2004, while the attic conversion is currently used as a home office, as well as providing considerable additional storage space. Also on the ground floor are the living room, dining room and guest WC. Upstairs, there are five bedrooms and a family bathroom, while the master bedroom has its own en suite bathroom.
Throughout the modernisation work, all of the property's original features were maintained, including picture rails, panelled internal doors, ornate stained glass windows and tiled fireplaces.
Outside, the front garden is cobble locked to provide off-street parking and is bordered by flowerbeds.
The 70ft rear garden is mainly in lawn, with the addition of an Indian sandstone patio area.
The garden also features a garden shed and a Kelly Barna log cabin.
Butterfield Crescent is a short walk from Rathfarnham and Nutgrove shopping centres, as well as schools, sports clubs and parklands.
Rathfarnham village offers restaurants, shops and pubs within walking distance. Both the M50 and Dundrum town centre are a short drive from Rathfarnham.
