Commanding magnificent views of the Sugar Loaf mountain, this extensive modern bungalow is tucked away within its own secluded grounds on the cusp of North Wicklow's scenic hinterland. Yet it is also within easy commuting distance of Dublin, making it perfectly placed to enjoy the best of both town and country living.
Located less than 1km from Kilmacanogue village, Cherryhill is completely hidden from view, being well set back from the public road on a site of over one acre, surrounded by mature trees.
Originally built in the 1950s, the house has undergone several upgrades and improvements to maintain the property to contemporary standards, with rooms presented in excellent condition throughout.
With a total floor area of almost 2,000 sq ft, rooms are spacious, well-proportioned and flooded with natural light flowing through the property's large windows. Many of the rooms are also highly versatile, lending themselves to a variety of purposes.
Laid out across a single floor, accommodation comprises an entrance hall with outer porch and a connecting corridor, an open-plan kitchen/diner with two adjoining utility rooms, a sitting room with feature fireplace incorporating a wood-burning stove, four large bedrooms, a home office, a family bathroom and a separate WC.
But the existing accommodation in Cherryhill is only half the story. The cherry on the top is an attic that is ripe for conversion, creating a significant amount of extra living space.
Outside, the property's extensive grounds feature a long driveway leading to a large gravelled parking area at the front of the house, extensive lawned areas, a picturesque pathway winding its way around the perimeter of the grounds and numerous mature trees. Most of these are grouped together in scenic spinneys and copses, with occasional standalone specimen trees catching the eye. These include maple, eucalyptus, silver birch, weeping willow and - appropriately, given the house's name - cherry.
