1 Hillcrest Downs, Sandyford, Dublin 18

Detached House





169 sq.m.



Janet Carroll is delighted to offer this exceptionally special family home (c.1820 sqft/169 sqm) to the summer market. Number 1 Hillcrest Downs is one of only seven detached properties in this very private, exclusive, secure and low density cul de sac, just beside Lambs Cross at the foot of the Dublin Mountains.

The property is positioned on an elevated site and is not overlooked. The living rooms and kitchen have views that have to be seen to be believed. If privacy and convenience to amenities is what is important to you, this might be an ideal home.

The beautifully presented and upgraded split level home is no ordinary residence. Five luxurious bedrooms with two of them ensuite, a large bespoke walk in wardrobe/dressing room off the main bedroom suite and a well-designed cook's kitchen are just some of the special features.

It is situated on a generous site with the possibility of an infill house, subject of course, to planning permission. It is in turn key condition throughout. There are many patio areas for the different times of the day.

Whilst on an avenue into a quiet and very secure cul de sac, it is central to a host of amenities nearby, with Lambs Cross literally on the door step. Just four minutes' drive away is Stepaside Village which offers great restaurants, pub and shops. It is only five minutes' drive to Dundrum Town Centre, a very short fifteen minutes' walk to the LUAS station and within easy access of numerous bus routes. The nearest bus stop at Lambs Cross which can be accessed via a pedestrian lane, serves Route 114 which connects this location with Leopardstown and Blackrock. This property has pedestrian access to St. Mary's National School and the local shops at Lambs Cross. It is also within walking distance to other local primary and secondary schools.

Leave your office in South Dublin and within a few minutes' drive, you are in a very exceptionally private and beautiful area with a pitch and putt course within a few minutes' stroll.

It is indeed country living without the commute at its best.
