Glen Aulinn is a very fine part brick fronted semi-detached 1930’s-built family home that has been in the same family since it was built. The property has been extended and renovated throughout but still retains all the original period features, including Art Deco chimneypieces and wall lights in the dining room. It now offers a wonderful home in turnkey condition.
The house is nestled behind secure electric gates occupying approximately 0.3acre, there is off street parking to the front for several cars, gated access to the rear garden and the front garden is landscaped with bedded borders and a Wisteria over the front door. Internally the accommodation extends to approximately 370sq.m (3,983sq. ft) overall (including the converted garage; excluding the attic). At ground floor level it is laid out as follows: a porched entrance opening through to a very fine entrance hall with solid timber parquet flooring, a feature fireplace, fitted book shelving and wall panelling. Off this there are two very fine interconnecting reception rooms. This space is dual aspect, benefitting from an easterly orientation to the front and west to the rear. The dining room to the rear overlooks the beautifully landscaped gardens, and this space has an original brick fronted chimney piece and 1930’s wall lights. The drawing room is located to the front with an original fireplace and a large, bowed window overlooks the front garden and fills this space with natural light. At the opposite side of the hall there is a cosy snug/study and a downstairs w.c. The kitchen is located to the rear of the house and is the heart of this family home, the kitchen is fitted with a range of Shaker style units with high end integrated appliances and a central island breakfast bar. This opens through to a dual aspect dining area where there are French doors opening out at either side to the garden. A large family room lies off the kitchen/dining space and completes the accommodation at this level and this is a great space with a cosy solid fuel stove and two sets of French doors opening out to the garden. At first floor level there are 7/8 bedrooms, a main family bathroom and two of the bedrooms are en suite. It would be possible to reconfigure the accommodation at this level if less bedroom space were required ultimately creating fewer larger bedrooms. There is a large attic room on the top floor with eaves storage.
The rear garden is a particular feature of Glen Aulinn, it faces west and measures approximately 24m (79ft) in length. Off the dining room there is a patio area with an awning above and a feature pond in the centre, this is a great spot for al fresco dining and drinks in the evening. To the other side of the house there is a gated pedestrian access opening out to the front of the property. There is access here into what would have originally been the garage and it has now been converted to accommodate a home gym which opens through to a separate utility and W.C. Beyond this there is a purpose-built open shed with bike storage, a play area, steps lead up to the garden which is laid out in lawn with mature fruit trees. At the end there is a Barna shed and compost heap and a suntrap patio, the garden is very private with hedging and mature planting to the borders.
The location of Glen Aulinn is of unparalleled convenience being within a stones’ throw of every conceivable amenity in Dun Laoghaire to include extensive shopping, many restaurants and cafes, the IMC Cinema and Lexicon Library along with a wide variety of pleasant walks along the seafront, east and west piers and the People’s Park. Monkstown Village with its boutique style shops, cafes and some of the finest restaurants in South County Dublin including Salt and Avoca, Bresson and Elephant & Castle are also closeby. There are a host of primary and secondary schools surrounding the property and the DART and bus are located close by. Recreation and leisure facilities are superb and include rugby, football, GAA, hockey and tennis clubs. The four yacht clubs and marina at Dun Laoghaire Harbour with its two piers will be of major interest to the marine, bathing and sailing enthusiasts.
