An exceptionally attractive detached double fronted family home positioned in this highly regarded development off Rochestown Avenue opposite the newly built National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) and a regular bus service. This substantial home was constructed circa 1979 and occupies a large corner plot (the biggest in Sefton) that would offer vast potential for further development in the form of a large extension to the side of the property or even as a detached dwelling subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions. 10 Sefton is an excellent family home that has been very well maintained and upgraded over the years. Briefly the accommodation comprises of a porch entrance opening into a very spacious reception hall with solid timber floor and good storage provisions. Folding doors from here open into the sitting room again with solid timber floor, ceiling detail and a marble open fireplace and this links the living room to the rear via folding timber doors. This is an exceptionally bright room, has continuation of the timber floor and the matching fireplace both with a glazed solid burning stove to the front. This room opens to the garden and through to the very well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with recently installed Rationale windows and side door. A guest w.c. concludes the accommodation at the ground floor level. On the first floor are four excellent double bedrooms (originally built as a five bed), one benefits from an en suite and a family bathroom concludes the accommodation at this level. The attic has been converted to provide a large bright open area with excellent storage. A particular feature of this quality family home are the stunning gardens that privately wraparound the property. There is off street parking to the front for numerous cars whilst pedestrian gates lead through to the rear garden that is mature and mainly laid out in lawn with suntrap patio. The corner position will be of major interest to those looking for an opportunity to construct a new dwelling subject to the necessary planning permissions and there is evidence of this throughout the Sefton development. The location of this quality family home will be of major interest to those searching for a mature family location, which is both convenient and central to a wide variety of amenities in Dun Laoghaire, Blackrock and Monkstown including excellent shopping with a selection of shopping centres in the near surrounds.
