Situated on what is lauded one of the most desirable addresses in South County Dublin, the appeal of this home matches the appeal of its address. One of a pair of imposing and immensely handsome bay windowed, semi-detached homes, Tanglewood extends to comfortably in excess of 4,000sq.ft. and has an enviable balance of accommodation throughout with elegant reception rooms, spacious bedrooms and ample everyday living accommodation. Exquisite detailing accentuates the gracious proportions of this beautiful period home, which is a shining example of the beauty synonymous with Victorian architecture. Period features adorn the property throughout, including original wood floors, large light bearing sliding sash windows, grand feature fireplaces, original servants bells and a beautiful, glazed roof dome which allows natural light to flow down through the house, all successfully married with modern conveniences.
To the front of the property, tall security gates enhance the property s sense of privacy and give way to a large, graveled parking area, bordered by mature planting, along with pedestrian side access. There is a less formal entryway at the garden level while Granite steps lead to the entrance porch with classically tiled flooring, creating a lovely sense of arrival and the more formal entrance. Where you would usually expect a pair of interconnecting reception rooms stretching from front to rear, Tanglewood s extra wide footprint affords it the space for a separate drawing room to the front and a pair of interconnecting reception rooms, divided by the stairwell which is lit form above by a glazed dome. The drawing room has a lovely sense of elegance and comfortable grandeur, complimented by the type of original intricate plasterwork that is not often seen, while the abundance of light that floods through the large bay window serves to enhance the rooms appeal. The prevailing sense of elegance continues through to the interconnecting dining room and living room. On the ground floor, there is a cozy country style kitchen with a walk-in pantry and a further entry way to the front of the property. There is also a family room, study and fifth bedroom along with a shower room and utility room. Double doors from the wide hallway give access to the 65ft x 40ft rear garden which is bordered by an attractive granite wall and maturing trees are successfully developing the gardens sense of privacy. It is a wonderful place for outdoor entertaining and for children to play in. The accommodation is completed on the top floor where the light filled landing gives access to four spacious double bedrooms, a bathroom and the shower room.
