Virtual Tour Link: Houses like Santessa change hands once in a generation. This is an opportunity to be the next generation in this fabulous and well presented family home. Santessa has it all – location, scale, privacy, a west facing garden and even a bar! On approach, granite gated pillars lead to an impressive tree-lined driveway with granite paving setts and kerbing that gently sweeps around the lawned garden to the front façade. Originally built as a bungalow in the 1940's, the property was fully renovated and extended in 1998 with an additional story added also. It sits on approximately one third of an acre and extends to C. 315 sqm/ 3,390 sq. ft., this property is substantial. It has been designed by the current owners with an emphasis on entertaining and one only has to look towards the large double height entrance hallway with multi-fuel burning stove and adjoining bar to appreciate this. To the rear, the open plan kitchen and family room, with TV room off, spans the full width of the house, and enjoys an abundance of natural light. To the front and overlooking the mature front garden, the living room/music room which houses a baby grand piano, is floored with oak and has an open fire for cosy winters evenings. Two bedrooms, a utility/ shower room and guest WC complete the downstairs accommodation. Walking upstairs, the balustrade leads you around the chandelier which hovers over the hallway below. The bedrooms are generous with the master boasting a walk-in wardrobe. A spacious office and separate studio are large enough to accommodate a variety of needs. There is also a shower room, family bathroom and walk-in hot press at this level. Accessed from either side of the house, the garden to the rear boasts a westerly orientation and thus enjoys the sun all afternoon and evening. Perhaps the perfect place for a summer barbeque on the patio or simply to kick a football around with the children. Exceptionally private, it is surrounded by mature hedging and laid out mostly in lawns. To the front a variety of shrubs, trees and an attractive granite wall adorn the boundaries. There is a central lawn with a gravelled driveway to one side where there is off street parking for multiple cars.    Cabinteely Village is seconds walk away and is one of south Dublin's more picturesque villages in the heart of this leafy suburb. In effect the village itself is part of a cul-de-sac which offers a quaint library, a handful of trendy eateries, the Horse & Hound public house and a Garda Station. For those familiar with Cabinteely you will know there is a strong and vibrant community here along with a very active Tidy Towns committee keeping the village and surrounds looking their best all year around. Cabinteely Park is one of South Dublin's most favoured attractions with children's play areas, acres of parklands, paved walkways and a period residence open to the public for various historical talks and its famous tea rooms. Dunnes of Cornelscourt is one of Ireland's largest and finest grocery stores where locals can avail of the impressive array of groceries and convenience stores, all with free parking. Access to the city and its surrounds is easy and frequent via Dublin Bus with the LUAS approximately 20 mins walk away also. The N11 is close by and the M50 is also convenient. In addition within close proximity are some of the best schools in South County Dublin including Loreto College Foxrock, St Brigid's Primary School, Holly Park, and Kill of the Grange to name a few. Early viewing is recommended to appreciate what this home has to offer!
