Stillorgan home has south-west facing gardens

A detached family residence offering 273sqm (2,944 sq ft) of generous and well-presented accommodation, Laragh stands on south-west facing and well maintained gardens in Stillorgan Park in south Dublin. Indeed, its gardens featured on Gerry Daly's 'Green Fingers' TV programme.

On the other hand, a large family or someone working from home might be attracted by its scope to extend to the rear and/or convert its garage.

Priced at €1.25m it was built in 1980 and benefits from a number of features including attractive plaster work, solid mahogany internal doors, antique stained-glass windows and a drawing room with windows overlooking the front gardens.

Further reception accommodation includes a more formal dining room and a family room adorned with cornicing and coving and from where a door leads to the rear garden. Its entrance hall is wide and benefits from enduring solid oak parquet floors as well as cornicing, coving, and original stained glass.

Its spacious kitchen/ breakfast room has its work and storage capacity supplemented by a utility room from which a door opens to a side garden.

Upstairs the landing is also enhanced by cornicing, coving and a stained-glass window. Four of the five bedrooms are en suite and a family bathroom is also located at this level.

Nicely set back from the road, the front comes with ample off-street parking for five cars with a large lawn area which is planted with a variety of mature trees and shrubs. Side pedestrian access leads to the sunny rear garden which is 54ft long by 53ft wide.

It is set out mainly in lawn, providing a safe environment for the children to play as well as a part cobble patio area. There is rear access to the garage and a further tool/storage shed that is wired for electricity.

Stillorgan Park is located between the N11 and Blackrock village making it convenient to the QBC as well as Stillorgan and Blackrock villages and the latter's Dart station.

Many of Dublin's premier schools are close at hand including Willow Park, Blackrock College, St Andrew's, Loreto Foxrock and Mount Anville as is the Smurfit Business School and UCD.
