Mullery O Gara are delighted to present 10 Ashdale Park, a charming and unique 1930's rebrick family home with feature corner bow windows nestled away on a quiet cul de sac just set back off Terenure village.
This beautifully presented home was completely refurbished in 2009 and the original iron windows were replaced with bespoke hand built hardwood replicas, double-glazed with argon gas windows to maximize insulation. The large double front doors received the same treatment. The refurbishment also included installation of high-grade insulation on all external walls as well as the ceilings and the attic, which is large enough to offer the possibility of conversion to increase living space.
During the refurbishment, a multi-zoned gas fired central heating system was installed along with a large 250-litre water tank feeding two high-pressure showers with rainfall showerheads. In 2017, to complete the insulation and maximize the efficiency of the heating system, the ground level floor cavity was filled with insulation and the original floorboards replaced with solid oak parquet floors. More recently, smart technology was added, allowing the heating system to be activated and controlled via smart phone app.
The house was re-wired to include recessed lighting and switchable lamp sockets in the living areas along with multiple power and data points in each room to accommodate high-speed internet connections for wall-mounted televisions and home office requirements.
Along with the feature windows, the current owners carefully upgraded and restored the original features back to their former glory.
The internal doors were chemically stripped and then repainted and the ground floor fireplaces, which are operational, have been painted and fitted with black slate hearths flush to the line of the new oak flooring.
The ground floor accommodation consists of an entrance hall, with two reception rooms connected by the original triple folding doors, a large bright kitchen / dining room extended with two Velux windows and a large utility room with WHB and ample storage. The utility room also doubles as a kids playroom complete with beanbags and wall mounted TV. A guest WC completes the ground floor.
On the return level are a large main bathroom and a shower room, both complete with chrome heated towel rails, WHB and WC. The main bathroom is finished with large polished travertine tiles.
The first floor has two large double bedrooms, a smaller double bedroom and a single bedroom with clever access to a mezzanine, ideal for a childs sleeping or play area. Two of the bedrooms have large fitted wardrobes. The large attic is accessible via folding stairs from the first floor landing, is currently used for additional storage, and could be converted into additional living space with electricity and radiator
piping already installed during the refurbishment.
Outside, to the front there is off street parking for two cars and a hedged garden with flowerbeds. To the side is a shed for bike and tool storage and to the rear is a south-west facing garden and patio with flowerbeds and garden furniture.
The located is second to none, just minutes’ walk from a variety of shops, restaurants, supermarkets and local schools in Terenure village.
This most charming and characterful home is in complete turn key condition, a "new house in an old shell" and boasts a really superb, tranquil setting with the village on the doorstep!
