Mount Merrion was one of the ealiest suburbs to be constructed in South County Dublin. During the mid 1930’s John Kenny, a builder from Limerick, started construction on the Mount Merrion Estate. Kenny designed the development to incorporate wide roads, white capped red brick walls in order to give the ‘Garden City’ estate its renowned sense of space. No 16 is a prime example of this school of thought, being a most attractive home that has been lovingly cared for by the current owners and provides the perfect balance between living and bedroom accommodation which extends to approx. 148 sq. m / 1,600 sq. ft. It will undoubtedly appeal to those seeking a home that not only caters for their growing family’s needs but also has the added benefit of having tremendous scope to extend over the garage or out into the garden (subject to Planning Permission) should the need arise.
A recessed entrance porch leads to the front door which opens into a welcoming entrance hall bathed in natural light. To the left of the hall is a delightful dual aspect drawing room with attractive views over the rear garden and an open fireplace with marble surround. To the rear of the hall is a cloakroom. On the right of the hall is a dining room with feature bay window opening into the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with timber floor and wall mounted units and a centre island complemented with granite worktops. Off the kitchen is a lobby area providing access to the garage, guest wc, garden and the family room with pitched ceiling.
Upstairs, are four double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes. There is a modern family bathroom and the benefit of an additional WC. A pull down ladder provides access to the attic.
No 16 is set well back from Sycamore Road with off street parking for multiple cars to the front of the property and there is a good sized garage. The garden to the rear is truly a gardener’s paradise. The large garden is mainly laid out in lawn with well stocked herbaceous and flower borders providing a riot of colour throughout the seasons. There are two Indian Sandstone patio areas from where summer barbecues or watching the children at play can be enjoyed throughout the day. Sycamore Road is a charming cul-de-sac location in the heart of Mount Merrion. There are excellent local amenities to include Deerpark with its 34 acres of attractive woodland walks, childrens’ playground and tennis courts, also closeby are neighbourhood shops on The Rise. For more extensive shopping facilities Stillorgan, Blackrock and Dundrum shopping centres are a short drive away. There is an excellent selection of primary and secondary schools in close proximity such as Willow Park, Blackrock College, Mount Anville, Scoil San Treasa, Coláiste Eoin & Íosgáin and St Andrews College to name but a few. For third level education or indeed recreational facilities UCD Campus is within walking distance. The QBC and the N11 provide swift and easy access to the City Centre.
