Sherry FitzGerald is delighted to welcome you to 16 The Manor, a cleverly extended and tastefully presented five bedroomed home which has gone from being an ordinary 1400sq foot house to an extraordinary 2,185sq ft, state of the art home where absolutely no expense was spared in its finish and design. It exudes an abundance of light, space, clever design and style which is evident throughout.
In 2017 it was skillfully extended, and in 2020 it was further refurbished and upgraded from top to toe by its current owner. The result is a stunning home which showcases the best of contemporary design and attention to detail.
From the moment one enters through the front door the tasteful presentation is apparent. You are welcomed into a large hall with impressive floor to ceiling panelling, herringbone flooring which runs throughout the reception rooms, curved walls with feature glass blocks running around the playroom and the guest w.c. is something worthy of a five-star hotel. This magnificent hall sets the tone for the rest of the accommodation. Just off the hall lies the cosy playroom / TV room with built in units. The strength of the house lies in the open plan kitchen/living/dining room to the rear, which spans the width of the house, with two floor to ceiling sliding doors, large tilt and turn window, panel skylights and a panoramic window with views over the mountains all of which floods this extended room in natural light. Design features such as an upholstered snug area with built in storage, a three-height ceiling which differentiates parts of this large open plan space and the double-sided stove which not only acts as a stunning focal point, but is also very practical as it has a back boiler, allowing it to heat the water and radiators with underfloor heating throughout the downstairs and upstairs bathroom and radiators in the bedrooms. The clever design around this includes alcove wood storage. The bespoke kitchen and large island incorporates top of the range appliances and is designed for those who love to cook and entertain. Staying on the entertaining theme, the utility area has also been set up as a fully functional home bar with the capacity for four beer taps and a full pub cooler system. There are double windows at the bar area that open out to a solid ash counter in the stunning, enclosed private garden which captures all day sun. Upstairs is the family bathroom and five bedrooms two of which are ensuite with the main bedroom on the third floor also having a walk in wardrobe.
The location needs little introduction as it is wonderfully convenient with every conceivable amenity within easy reach including St. Enda s and Marlay parks and all the shops and facilities in Rathfarnham and Knocklyon along with the newly built Tesco s on Stocking Avenue. Nutgrove Shopping Centre and Dundrum Town Centre are all within a short commute, as well as numerous local and highly regarded primary and secondary schools within walking distance - perfect for the growing family. Public transport is also extremely well catered for with the M50 road network on the doorstep. Set at the foothills of the Dublin mountains, this is a gorgeous location for those who enjoy a setting surrounded by greenery and beautiful views. No. 16 is located at the end of a quiet, traffic free cul-de-sac and overlooks a green area so is ideal for families with young children.
The large landscaped private fronted garden. Current owners renovated the garden in 2020 to reflect the heart of the house in summer months. A bespoke seated area surrounds a handmade Fire Pit ideal for those balmy summer nights. Fastoon lighting illuminates the manicured low maintenance garden, whist the mature ash and beech trees are uplit to show off their grandeur. An ash bar table connects to the indoor bar making it ideal for entertaining.
