Radiant in Rathmichael
Westfield House, Ballybride, Rathmichael, Co Dublin
Six-bedroom detached home on a quarter acre
Attractively renovated and extended as recently as 2007, Westfield House is located on a secluded quarter-acre site at Ballybride, Rathmichael, in south Co Dublin and is on the market for €995,000.
With a floor area extending to 334.5sqm (3,601 sq ft), its accommodation includes six bedrooms and four reception rooms.
The carefully thought-out design has seen the renovation create an attractively presented and comfortable family home.
Its entrance hall leads to most rooms with crema marfil marble tiling which continues into the open-plan kitchen.
The bespoke custom-made kitchen comes complete with an Aga cooker in this bright and airy room from which double doors lead to a family room, an attractive combination for two rooms which are at the heart of most family home. For more formal occasions an open-plan dining and drawing room is located to the front of the house and it is decorated in a quiet, elegant style to suit special occasions.
A living room to the left of the entrance hall is elegant yet comfortable, with a raised open fireplace in the centre of the room as well as a bay window. Behind this room is a games room but it could just as easily be adapted to a playroom and has French doors leading to the rear patio.
Upstairs there are six double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, as well as a shower room and a separate family bathroom.
One of these bedrooms is the master suite, which is en suite, and runs the depth of the house, offering a surprisingly spacious room. This is entered via a corridor with a walk-in wardrobe.
Despite its inland location, the site's elevation allows occupants to catch views of the sea from some of its upstairs windows.
Underlining its privacy, the house is bordered by a granite wall with electric entrance gates leading up the avenue.
The avenue is bordered with trees and a lawned area either side which leads to the front of the house, offering ample parking. There are two entrances which lead to the sunny south-westerly rear garden which is laid mainly in lawn with a large Indian sandstone patio, a perfect area for dining al fresco and soaking up the sunshine.
The garden comes complete with garden room with a hot tub and sauna. It is on view Saturday 11 am to noon.
Rathmichael enjoys seclusion whilst still being within convenient access to the M50 and N11 for easy commuting to city centre and beyond. Local amenities include churches, primary/secondary schools and the Luas green line at Cherrywood Business Park.
Rathmichael is also relatively convenient to Killiney, Dalkey and the DART at Shankill. Exceptional schools nearby include Aravon and St Gerard's. Old Conna Golf Club is close by on Ferndale Road.
