Cielito (D18 P2X2) is a generous bungalow in an elevated setting nestled into the hillside, with views across the Southside of Dublin and Dublin Bay to Howth Head. It is securely situated behind new granite walls and 4m wide electric gates. This is an ideal property for entertaining with its interconnecting reception rooms opening to a large terrace. To the rear the spacious kitchen/breakfast room has a window and patio doors opening to a bright and beautiful SW facing sun patio. A second set of patio doors opens to a wonderfully bright conservatory getting all day sunshine. There is a quiet and cosy back lounge with a corner fireplace also opening to the conservatory. Off the hallway are four bedrooms with master ensuite and a family bathroom. A spiral staircase leads to a mezzanine over the entrance hall, off which are two attic spaces. One is a large attic room with two skylights. With an apex height of 2.55m this could easily be converted to a habitable room with outstanding views. On the other side of the mezzanine is an unfinished attic space with limited ceiling height.
A large triple garage, 10m deep, extends under the terrace and front room. In front of this is a front lawn 8m x 10m which will be finished and set in grass. There is a 4.5m wide driveway running along the side of the property, with vehicular doors leading to the back sun patio. At the back of the patio is a garden pond set into the sloped back garden. From the top of the garden there is a fabulous view, which could be a great backdrop for a garden studio. Behind this, to the rear of this property, is agricultural land on the lower slopes of Three Rock Mountain.
Cielito is conveniently located less than 20 minutes walk from Marlay Park, Wesley College and the 14, 16 and 75 bus routes in Ballinteer. There is a convenience store, pharmacy, medical centre and creche nearby in Ticknock Hill. Recreational facilities in the area include hill walking and mountain biking in The Dublin Mountains, riding stables at The Paddocks and Kellystown, golf at Stackstown and The Grange, Lamb Doyle's, The Blue Light and Taylor's Three Rock are close by. Employment hubs in Sandyford Business Park, Central Park and South County Business Park are easily accessible, as is shopping in Dundrum Town Centre and Beacon South Quarter.
The Balackglen Road is currently undergoing substantial improvements. A sign at the roadworks states that they are due for completion in February 2023. Once these are done it will have cycle lanes and footpaths stretching from Marlay Park to Lamb Doyle's and Lamb's Cross.
A new granite wall has been constructed in front of the property with a recessed entrance giving plenty of space to stop off the roadway while the new electric gates are opening. As part of these work a new sewer is being installed to which Cielito will be connected.
