Something Different

Oleandri, Enniskerry Road, Kilternan, Co. Dublin

€860,000 - Asking Price|3 Bedrooms, 141 sqm approx

Oleandri is an achingly pretty double-fronted villa emanating 1920’s/1930’s character, detached on over one third acre of sun-soaked gardens approached through wrought-iron gates set in granite piers. Nestling beneath the Dublin foothills by The Scalp at the gateway to Co. Wicklow, this is a walkers paradise; a haven for nature lovers who revel in the forestry walks and trails leading to the Wicklow Way; choices ranging from Barnaslingan Woods, Glencullen to the Pine Forest, or southwards via Knocksink towards picturesque Enniskerry village and the Glencree Valley. All this minutes’ drive from Dundrum and south Dublin city; Cherrywood, Ballyogan and Drundrum Luas, the retail park at Carrickmines. Excellent connectivity includes easy access to the N.11/M.11/M.50 corridor, and both Shankill and Bray DART stations. The major Cherrywood scheme nearby is scheduled to have three recreational parks, one of which is destined for Kilternan.

Oleandri has been thoughtfully re-modelled and upgraded; its principal rooms are light-filled and well-proportioned, enjoying access from an elegantly arched reception hall. Retro-fitted with double glazing throughout, re-roofed and insulated, the property features a fine custom kitchen/breakfast room with island and oil-fired Aga cooker; complemented by luxury bathrooms on both levels – the principal suite upstairs with full ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, and views to Mine Hill. Hobbyists will appreciate the double garage with direct access from the utility room; and the gardens enjoy a sense of micro-climate, facing south and west to the rear.

On a citybound direct bus-route, with a stop by the entrance gates, yet offering a rural sense of peace and space with excellent primary and secondary schools within easy reach, Oleandri is well worth viewing.
