Located just off Fortfield Road in Terenure, Dublin 6W, this five-bedroom detached family residence, 15 Hyde Park, is in a quiet, sought-after cul-de-sac in a residential area of Terenure.

There are numerous reasons while it will appeal to a family, and it may also appeal to someone wishing to enhance the property by converting its integrated garage or avail of its relatively generous site for an extension or restyling.

Its south-west facing rear garden extends 155ft by 60ft and it has a a large paved driveway to the front of the house.

The house has a number of features which will appeal to modern families, such as the two en suite bedrooms and the sun room in the existing extension.

The dual aspect of its drawing room, with one aspect facing a patio door to the rear garden, ensures it is light filled. Both it and the living room are adorned with coving, centre rose and marble fire places. Glass concertina doors also connect the living room to the kitchen/dining/ sun room. The latter has French doors to the rear garden.

As well as being fitted with a range of appliances including an integrated hob and oven, the kitchen's work space is supplemented by a utility room which has a Belfast sink.

In all, the total floor area of the house extends to 204sqm (2,200 sq ft), not including the garage which, if converted, could transform the house into a double fronted redbrick. It is priced at €850,000.

Upstairs all five bedrooms are double in size and four have built-in wardrobes. Both en suites have showers and a family bathroom is also located at this level.

Between two of the bedrooms is an area which can be used as a study or office.

Attractively secluded, the rear garden benefits from a range of trees, shrubs and plants, wide herbaceous borders, rolling lawns with a large patio area and feature pond. Tucked away at the very back lies a secret garden, which is a haven of peace and tranquillity.

Surrounded by a range of local amenities, it is convenient to well-established junior and senior schools such as Terenure and Templeogue Colleges, Presentation College, Our Lady's School and St Pius X Junior School.

Terenure and St Mary's rugby clubs are close by, as is Templeogue Tennis Club. The extensive recreational amenities and sporting facilities of Bushy Park are just around the corner as well as excellent local shopping.

The area is also well-serviced by direct bus routes to the city centre.
