Bungalow bliss near Maynooth for €825k
Oakwood, Maynooth €825k
From the outside, 'Oakwood', at Newtown Road in Maynooth, Co Kildare, may look like a straightforward, unpretentious bungalow. Once inside, though, that impression is quickly dispelled.
Though it clearly doesn't look it from the front, it's a fairly colossal 4,500 sq ft in size, and is full of vast, open-plan rooms with yawning, sky-lit ceilings.
Oakwood was designed by an architect and built in 2005 by its current owners. Despite its size, it has only four bedrooms, mainly because most of the space is given over to an embarrassment of reception rooms.
First of these is a sitting room with a marble fireplace containg a gas fire. Another is a games room with a bar, projector and cinema screen, and French doors to the patio.
There's also a study and a triple-aspect family room with wood floors, connected by double doors to the kitchen and dining room, which measures over 29 ft by 17 ft. The kitchen has a vaulted ceiling and French doors leading to the garden. It has fitted cherry cabinets with granite countertops, and there's a centre island with a breakfast bar, and a separate utility room.
All four bedrooms are ensuite, and the master bedroom ensuite has a jacuzzi bath and separate shower.
The property also includes a granny flat, with a kitchen, living room/dining room, and en-suite bedroom.
The property sits on half-an-acre of ground, and the landscaped garden includes two patios, a lawn and a water feature. There's also a detached garage of about 25 ft by 20 ft.
Oakwood is close to the centre of Maynooth, and about 10 minutes' walk from the train station. By car, it's roughly 35 minutes from Dublin city centre.
