A Private Courtyard incorporating RTE Home of the year 2020 and ancillary accommodation. The Courtyard, Beech Park, adjacent Shackleton Gardens is an oasis of tranquillity incorporating a 19th Century converted Carriage House (the principal residence within The Courtyard), the Gate Cottage, the Garden Cottage, The Grand Hall and a Workshop. This is an utterly unique opportunity to acquire a most charming 19th Century property enjoying an almost rural setting in West Dublin. Recently The Carriage House, the principal residence within The Courtyard, won the illustrious title of RTE Home of the Year 2020 fending off competition from 21 beautiful homes from around this Emerald Isle. The 19th Century Carriage House and adjoining stable were transformed into a distinctive, rare and exceptional 120sqm (1291sqft) two-bed house with the vision of the current owner, shaped by MVK Architects and made real by Des Egan & Sons who specialise in Heritage building projects. The works were completed, and great things achieved under the watchful eye of Fingal County Council’s conservation architect and a wonderful home that married contemporary and gracious living. Dating from 1830 The Courtyard was succinctly described by Peter Crowley of PAC, one of the judges on Home of the Year 2020 as “The Courtyard, a perfect quadrangle, is like something from an Enid Blyton novel “ The cobblestoned courtyard is a joy to behold from almost any vantage point within. The Carriage House has almost floor to ceiling glazing and looks onto The Grand Hall with a most distinctive clocktower and weathervane. Landscaped grass squares give home to well stocked mature trees and shrubs all of which may be regarded from the delightful pergola, a focal point within the courtyard. The Grand Hall has served as the reception area for many family celebrations and presents as an ideal venue for both private parties and occasions. The workshop may be adapted to gainful uses or pursuing private endeavours. The cottages form part of this single-family compound. There is ample parking available. All required local amenities shops, schools and churches are within 10 minutes safe walking distance. The location is just 5 minutes’ walk from Luttrellstown Castle as is Clonsilla train station that brings you into the Dublin City Centre in less than twenty minutes. The DART system is being extended to this service. The M50 road network is just 10 minutes away and Dublin airport just 25 minutes’ drive. Connectivity is certainly the byword for local, national and international access. The Carriage House and adjoining stables, a beacon of traditional vibrant Victorian colours, comprises 120sqm (1291sqft) of bespoke enchanting two bed roomed accommodation. Maximising light and space, the result is a triumph of reimagination that incorporates the buildings original equine function into the fabulous home that we find here today. The restoration created a light filled reception room with largely floor to ceiling glazing by way of two large windows. The partly open-plan kitchen/dining room, with retained original wainscot, is separated by the old stable wall screens, The upstairs floor was lowered to give enough space for the two double bedrooms, an en suite shower room and a bathroom that occupies the former hayloft. Solar panels were also installed during the renovation.
