For Sale by Private Treaty BALNAGOWAN 38 GREENFIELD ROAD MOUNT MERRION BLACKROCK CO. DUBLIN A94 W2R6 PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Janet Carroll Estate agents are excited to offer Balnagowan Mount Merrion for sale by Private Treaty. Only the second time on the open market since it was built by the renowned builder John Kenny in 1935. Kenny is known for having built the finest homes in Mount Merrion and Balnagowan, a one-of-a-kind, unique, family home is at the very top end of the range. Standing on a spectacular elevated site with southwest orientation to the rear garden this very large, elegant 4 bedroomed detached property of circa 260 sqm has been tastefully extended and fully renovated to the highest standard while achieving an impressive 'A' rated BER classification. Its historical character and charm has been lovingly retained, while at the same time modernised to be energy efficient, warm and offer very comfortable living. Balnagowan is in turnkey condition throughout with superior finishes and spacious rooms for modern living. The builder has carefully reinstated many of the original charming features such as several exterior and interior arched doors. The original ornate steel arched double doors from the side entrance has been repurposed as doors to the wine vault. As you enter the property grounds, you will be greeted by a leafy green archway that not only looks beautiful but also provides unrivalled privacy. The front of the property offers generous off-street parking and ample unrestricted on-street parking is available just outside. The front of the property is wired both for electrical charging points for vehicles as well as electric gates if the buyer wishes to install these. There is a separate entrance to the side of the property which can be used as separate accommodation or as a fantastic office or work-from-home space. Upon entering the property, you are welcomed into the well-proportioned hallway which leads to a cloak room as well as steps down to under stairs storage and a guest WC with partially panelled and tiled curved walls featuring a round porthole window. From the hallway you are led to the large, airy, and bright family room/ kitchen. The kitchen is newly fitted with all the latest top of the range appliances, including a clever coffee station next to the double fridge-freezers as well as two dishwashers and Bluetooth amplifier and ceiling speakers making it perfect for entertaining. The underfloor heating extends throughout the entire downstairs area and is extensively fitted with contemporary porcelain tiles providing a comfortable temperature throughout the year. Two sets of double French doors lead out to the south-west facing, sun trap oatmeal granite patio and garden from the kitchen, which has been professionally landscaped and is perfect for summer barbecues and entertaining. You can also spot mature greenery and a beautiful church in the skyline. One of the many doors off the kitchen leads to the steps down to the utility room which features a brand-new washer and dryer as well as a convenient laundry chute from the upstairs half landing. Above the quartz worktop area, the central comms station and CCTV monitor are both installed here. From here is the door to the plant room which houses the air to water heating cylinder. Onwards from here the access to the side entrance hallway leads down to some of the original mahogany steps to an intriguing hallway with a WC room and the previously mentioned wine storage area. The room at the end of this hallway, also known as the sunroom is south west facing and wonderfully lit making this an ideal space for an office, a place of business, a playroom or even a guest bedroom. Back through the family room/kitchen area is a beautiful glazed arched door leading to yet another interesting aspect of the property. The first room you enter is the impressively large drawing room which also has a direct entrance from the hallway. This room has a double aspect with large front windows overlooking the beautiful cherry tree and a large bay window to the back overlooking the southwest facing patio and garden. The purchaser has the option of easily reinstating the fireplace in the drawing room to their own requirements as the chimney and flue are still in place. From the drawing room is another original arched glazed door leading to what was originally called the library, with stunning arched doors and arched windows to the patio. From this room you are led into the office which has views to the front of the property. Upstairs from the main hallway on the half landing, you will find the large family bathroom, with spectacular floor to ceiling porcelain marble effect tiles, underfloor heating, and fantastic views to the East. Just outside the family bathroom is the cleverly positioned laundry chute going directly to the laundry cupboard in the utility room. Up several steps, you can access the smallest of the four bedrooms, with double aspect windows looking to the East and South. Another few steps up brings you to the main upstairs landing. From here you can access the other three bedrooms. The partially panelled large main bedroom boasts a large bay window overlooking the landscaped garden and patio area. The ensuite has underfloor heating and is also tiled with the same large porcelain marble effect floor to ceiling tiles. Facing to the front, is another partially panelled large double room with an ensuite and fitted wardrobe. From the wardrobe you can access one of the eaves storage areas. Across the room, there is access to more substantial storage. The property is located in one of Dublin's most desirable residential settings. Greenfield Road is just moments away from a range of shops, pharmacies, restaurants, and cafes. Just a one-minute walk away, there is an entrance to Deer Park, which has a playground, tennis club, dog park and amazing views over the city. There are also several sought-after schools within walking distance in the area, including Scoil San Teresa, Mount Anville, Willow Park, Blackrock College, St. Andrews, and Oatlands College, UCD is also within very close proximity.
