Something Different

Stylebawn, Rocky Valley Drive, Enniskerry, Co Wicklow

€895,000 - Asking Price|4 Bedrooms, 354 sqm approx

Designed and built circa 40 years ago Stylebawn is a unique architect designed contemporary house, ahead of its time. Commanding panoramic views across the valley to Powerscourt estate and house, this unique residence set on landscaped gardens enjoys rural charm in touch with suburban amenity. Versatile accommodation with deep windows inviting the garden into the house, and vice versa, lends great scope for the expanding young family with plenty of space for adults to entertain at will. A sheltered parking spot gives way to dramatic granite steps to a sunken terrace and the hall door, in turn opening to a split-level reception hall joining the main living room with the open plan family/diner/eat-in kitchen (above which is a mezzanine gallery), in turn opening via wide glazed screen doors to an elevated deck.

There are four bedrooms off a lateral gallery corridor featuring indoor planters and floor-to ceiling glazed panels for a real sense of light and proportion; then upstairs in the roof zone are a series of spaces which offer anything from studio/den, to home office/library, to sauna and ultimate “man cave”!

The gardens are a truly essential element of Stylebawn’s appeal. Approached from the county road via a sweeping avenue skirted by established tree-planting of c. 39 years’ maturity one enters an almost glade-like parking area. From here, a set of cut-stone granite steps between plinth walls brings you down to the sunken terrace and the hall door, but to the left, another less formal flight, rustic sleeper-defined gravel terraces skirt a variety of younger trees, flowering shrubs, herbs and bushes screening a suntrap terrace outside Bedroom 2, and leading on downhill to the impressive main lawned garden “behind” the house; and to a hidden kitchen garden. It is worthwhile taking time to go for a little “ramble” around the garden before venturing back inside for another walk through the house.
