16 Stocking Wood Manor, Rathfarnham, Dublin 16 €850k
Home-hunters looking to pull up their property socks might find just what they want in Stocking Wood, a popular development that offers the best of both worlds by combining proximity to the city with country living on the doorstep.
To get away from it all, a 10-minute drive will get you to the Dublin Mountains with its various walking and cycling trails – just the ticket to recharge the batteries after the working week.
And if your job is in the capital, you can be at the Docklands in half an hour to an hour depending on traffic.
For hybrid workers, No16 Stocking Wood Manor has the added bonus of a separate shed with high-speed broadband, making an ideal home office.
There’s a utility room that doubles up as a home bar, with capacity for four beer taps, a full pub cooler system and a side window opening to an ash bartop, so that pints can be served directly outside.
Following an extension in 2017 that increased the floor area to 2,185 sq ft, No16 was renovated in 2020, resulting in an ultra-modern five-bed semi with underfloor heating, recessed lighting and herringbone timber flooring throughout the ground floor.
Off the entrance hall are a playroom/TV room and a guest WC. The utility room/bar is to the front, but the main hub of this home is a 773 sq ft open-plan kitchen/dining/living room to the rear.
Sliding doors lead out to a low-maintenance garden with a retractable pergola and a built-in Bushbeck firepit/pizza oven.
Upstairs are four bedrooms (one ensuite) and a family bathroom with jacuzzi bath and built-in smart TV.
The main bedroom on the second floor has an ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe.
No16 Stocking Wood Manor is for sale at €850,000 with Sherry FitzGerald (01) 495 1111.
