It is not overlooked front or back and enjoys great privacy with a fantastic playing green directly in front of the house providing a safe haven for children to play. It is surrounded by mature and beautifully maintained gardens which wrap around the property allowing for the sun to hit different parts of the garden at different times of the day. There are a number of patio seating areas to avail of the sun through the day The outlook to the front is very unique and highly desirable on any house hunters list and with stunning sylvan views to the rear, the dual aspect in the living / dining room works incredibly well. Without any other properties to the front or being overlooked to the rear, there is a tremendous feeling of space around you with so much greenery, making it a really stunning setting. No. 40 is an immaculately maintained home which has been upgraded through the years and has had the addition of a well-appointed sunroom to the rear with underfloor heating and fold back doors which open onto a golden granite patio area. There is a large entrance hall, a newly fitted and tiled guest w.c. a superb living / dining room which runs the full length of the house and filled with natural light and beautiful views via its dual aspect.

The kitchen / breakfast room has been upgraded and is bright and modern with the sunroom just off it. Upstairs there are four fine sized bedrooms, two of which are ensuite and three of which overlook the front availing of beautiful views. The family bathroom, hotpress and attic access with a Stira ladder completes the picture. Easily accessible to both Rathfarnham and Knocklyon, a wealth of amenities are on its door step including local shops, Rathfarnham and Knocklyon Shopping Centers, excellent primary and secondary schools, a regular bus route, the M50, and many leisure and sporting facilities.
