You d be forgiven for never realising Langdale even existed, such is the privacy it is afforded on one of the most highly sought-after addresses in the locality. Upon your approach to the property, down the tree lined driveway, you soon come to realise you ve come upon something a little bit special; a sanctuary hidden away on 0.6 of an acre (approx.). A substantial detached residence bathed in the southerly sun, its generously proportioned and exceptionally well-balanced accommodation is drenched in natural light, while the grounds upon which it resides have been beautifully matured and have comfortably played host to large outdoor celebrations and family sporting tournaments. A happy home which has been thoroughly enjoyed by the current owner, it is very evident that it has been much loved and remarkably well cared for.
Wisteria vines have been trained across the facade of the house and its beautiful hanging flowers look spectacular when in bloom. A large, tiled entrance porch allows you to either prepare yourself for the elements, or recover from them, before entering the main house, where an impressive double height entrance hall greets you with a real sense of arrival. The drawing room is off to the left of it and is elegantly appointed with a box bay window and double doors to the garden. The living room looks onto the south facing garden and gives access to a sheltered veranda with electric blinds, which is a fabulous vantage point from which to spectate over activities on the lawn. On the other side of the hall there is a play room /study and cloakroom with guest w.c., The large kitchen /dining room with island unit and utility room opens into a conservatory, which links to the veranda once again. Upstairs, all five bedrooms are generous double rooms, the principal of which has two spacious closets and a large en-suite bathroom. There is a further family bathroom at this level.
Probably the most special feature of this home is the magnificent garden which wraps around the house and enjoys the utmost of privacy from the tall evergreen hedging. The driveway down to the house is flanked by mature hedging and a lawned area with a selection of trees. As you approach the immediate surrounds of the house, the parking area, with pond, is graveled and is bordered by a wealth of mature plants and trees, creating further privacy. A flowering hedge is trained around a pergola which leads through to the veranda and lawn with Weeping Willow in the corner and well stocked beds insert pops of colour here and there. There is a further lawn to the rear with a large area set up for a kitchen garden. There is also a large detached double garage.
The property is very conveniently located between Dalkey and Dun Laoghaire where both social and essential amenities are in abundance. There are all the facilities one would expect from the delightful villages of Dalkey and Glasthule, including an excellent choice of shops, specialist delicatessens and restaurants, while Dun Laoghaire town centre itself has everything you need for everyday living. There is a wide selection of recreational amenities including golf clubs and tennis clubs (Glenageary Tennis Club is just across the road), as well as the four yacht clubs at Dun Laoghaire Harbour, which will be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiast. Public transport links to the city centre are easily accessible with the DART station at Glenageary and the No.7 bus stop both close by, while the Aircoach provides direct access to Dublin Airport. There are also many highly regarded schools in the area including Rathdown School, St Joseph of Cluny and CBC Monkstown.
