New 'cottage' in exclusive five home cul-de-sac
Orchard Cottage, Castleknock, Dublin 15
This new-build at the end of the charming Greenvalley Lane in Castleknock is a timber-framed four-bed detached home.
The architect-designed "cottage", which costs €875,000, is on a large landscaped tree-lined site, set in a private cul-de-sac of just five homes.
The house's reception porch, which has solid oak-wood floors and double doors, leads to an entrance hall - also laid with solid oak-wood floor - that features under-stairs storage, a cloakroom and solid oak stairs and banisters.
In the lounge, there is a sandstone fireplace with a marble inset and a wood-burning stove.
The hand-painted wooden fitted kitchen comes with a granite worktop and splash-back, a walnut breakfast counter, and integrated ceiling spotlights.
The dining room has a raised ceiling, integrated spotlights and double doors that lead to a rear landscaped garden and a granite patio.
The ground floor also has a family room, which can also be used as a fourth bedroom, and a shower room. Upstairs, the master bedroom has an ensuite and a dressing room with built-in rails and shelves. The tiling and bathrooms are by Villeroy & Boch.
Outside, electric security gates open on to a sweeping stone driveway and a manicured lawn surrounded by newly-planted trees and shrubs.
As well as being fenced and walled, the back garden has been newly planted with trees and shrubs to lend additional privacy to residents.
This A-rated home is within walking distance of Castleknock Village and the Phoenix Park. There are transport links in the form of the 37 and 38 bus and a train from Castleknock Station.
