Sherry FitzGerald is delighted to welcome Amberley to the open market, a unique and distinctive, architect designed 4 bedroomed detached residence, located in the heart of Rathmichael in Dublin 18. Beautifully positioned in this exclusive enclave off the prestigious grounds of John Scottus School, this handsome red bricked property is set on the most magnificent gardens of circa 2 acres. The location is idyllic, offering a rural ambience with the utmost privacy and yet is within just minutes of urban amenity. This unique setting offers spectacular views over the countryside as far as Killiney bay and Dalkey island in the distance. The property also benefits from a detached double garage with loft area above, providing versatile use as either a home office, gym or au pair accommodation as required. Amberley was built in 1989, under the supervision of renowned architect Paul Brazil and all accommodation has been stylishly appointed. The beautiful interiors are bright and spacious with most rooms boasting a dual aspect, allowing for an abundance of light throughout. The accommodation flows beautifully, from the impressive galleried entrance hall, with guest wc, through to three reception rooms, to include a playroom, formal dining room and superb triple aspect living room with feature fireplace and direct access to the west facing patio. A superb open plan kitchen / dining / family room, also accessing the patio, makes this an ideal home for family life and entertaining. There is also a separate utility room. Upstairs a large landing offers space for a desk and seating area. There are four double bedrooms (2 ensuite), all with a dual aspect, the principal of which is particularly spacious and features a full bathroom ensuite. The second double bedroom, with ensuite shower room, enjoys delightful views as far as landmark Sorrento Terrace and Dalkey island in the distance. Two further dual aspect double bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the layout. The superb accommodation is spacious, bright and well maintained and offers untold potential in an unrivalled setting. Entered through electric gates to a sweeping driveway which leads down to the front of the house flanked by lawns on either side. The gardens are magnificent, the perimeter surrounded by mature hedging and trees offering supreme privacy. The gardens offer a mix of formal and informal planting, a wide range of mature shrubs, trees and planting. The south westerly side of the property also offers sun patios overlooking the lawn garden, mature hedging and flower beds. A patio to the south westerly side of the property offers the discerning purchaser access to all day sun whilst dining al fresco. This is a veritable sun trap! The remaining garden is divided by more mature hedging, manicured lawns with ample colour throughout the seasons and a wide range of mature trees. There are breathtaking views over the hillside from the house and certain areas of the garden capture magnificent sea views as far as Dalkey island. To the rear of the house the garden is west facing, extremely private and not overlooked. It is an ideal area for children to play in and adults to while away the hours in the sunshine. The location offers a rural ambience and yet is totally in touch with suburban amenity (schools, leisure and retail). Within just 2km of the N11/M50 corridor there’s easy access to the city centre. Cherrywood Luas stop and the Dart at Shankill, are within 4km. There is a selection of highly regarded primary and secondary schools in the vicinity, including Rathmichael parish school, St. Annes, St. Gerard’s and not least John Scottus on the doorstep! Equestrian and hill walking pursuits are in abundance, along with a wide choice of golf clubs including Dun Laoghaire, Woodbrook and Powerscourt. The nearby village of Shankill offers local shopping, Cornelscourt and Dundrum town centre, offering more extensive retail options, are also within easy reach.
