5 Killiney Gate, Killiney, Co Dublin, A96 E276

Detached House





146 sq.m.



Janet Carroll is delighted to present to the market No. 5 Killiney Gate. This wonderful property is one of the premier detached residences in this low density build of only 23 homes. It is located on a beautiful elevated site in a quiet cul-de-sac off Church Road, Killiney.

Originally known as 'The Heywood' model measuring c. 146sqm/1571.5sqft (including converted garage), this one owner property was bought from new and has been superbly maintained as a beautiful and elegant family home. Initially a four-bedroom home, the master bedroom was cleverly redesigned to incorporate a dressing room/office and an en suite. This has created 3 well-proportioned bedrooms with the footprint of four bedrooms. The contemporary kitchen and all other areas in this home are finished to the highest of standards and one can imagine entertaining friends and family where there is always a warm welcome.

Killiney is a highly sought-after location that has maintained its element of seclusion but at the same time offers such a varied lifestyle, for professionals and families alike. It has a lovely local village with bars, restaurants and coffee shops and Killiney Hill is a short drive away for those who enjoy walking. Its proximity to Killiney Strand, the coast and public transport links is what makes this such a popular and desirable place to live. There are several amenities close by such as Killiney Shopping Centre, Killiney DART station, and Killiney Golf Club, as well as some premier schools such as Glenageary Killiney National School, St. Joseph of Cluny School and Holy Child School.

The development itself is wonderfully mature and has ample green areas close by for families to enjoy. The original brochure stated that Killiney Gate was 'hugging the slopes of Killiney Hill and enjoys panoramic views across a sweeping valley to the Dublin and Wicklow Hills.' The concept of quality is apparent throughout the whole house with sunny landscaped rear garden and one can only imagine the lifestyle that can be enjoyed here.

Entrance Hall: c. 2.79m x 2.60m
The entrance is not only welcoming but spacious with clever storage behind the hall door for discreet use. The floor is tiled and there is a guest w/c to the right.

Guest W/C:
Tiled floor, w/c and wash hand basin.

Family Room: c. 3.78m x 4.93m
To the left as you enter the home is a family room set to the front of the property. It is a great size and would suit a variety of uses. Open fuel fireplace, wooden floors and a corner space that allows for additional storage if required. A wide window space provides natural light.

Dining Area: c. 4.78m x 3.07m
There are so many beautiful elements to this home but one of the most striking has to be the split-level dining room that leads to the living room. It really must be seen to be appreciated. Accessed via a glass panelled door, the dining area has a warm wooden floor that is bright and overlooks the living room. Recessed lighting. This room is separated by pillars that are almost a feature in themselves.

Steps lead to the living room.

Storage Space: c. 1.40m x 1.02m (max)
Under the stairs. Accessed via door and adds another element of practicality.

Living Room: c. 6.95m x 3.12m
The solid fuel fireplace was strategically designed so it catches your eye upon descending the steps into the living room. It is surrounded by a large wooden panel. One can imagine a crackling fire on a cool evening. The slate hearth and surround reflect the flames and there is a soft glow to this room making it a cosy escape following a long day at work or school. One of the benefits of this location is that it is set into the hill and provides for a fabulous ceiling height of c. 3 metres. This provides that extra sense of space that many would only dream of. There is a large door that leads to one of the rear patios and this not only provides additional light but as the sunny garden is privately set, you are once again faced with a view of nature. There is a wonderful bonus to this room, in the form of a window feature. Measuring c. 1.90m x 0.90m and 2.40m high (max) it is accessed via steps and has fitted shelving to the sides. This would make a lovely 'book nook' or storage space. It is a feature in itself.

Kitchen/Breakfast Room: c. 3.13m x 3.55m / 3.48m x 3.18m
This is a fabulous space that has an open plan design to incorporate both a kitchen and breakfast room. It is an open plan layout which not only maximises the space available but benefits from the light that comes from the dual aspect windows. This is a practical space with tiled floor, plenty of wall and floor units, coupled with a Miele dishwasher, Neff hob and double oven and Panasonic microwave. This area works very well and continues to the breakfast area. An almost panoramic view of the rear garden is a beautiful scene to be presented with every morning. It not only welcomes light in but has a wonderful way of merging both interior and exterior. A lovely way to start the day. The clever use of storage continues with a large fitted shelf unit that is highly practical yet does not impose on the room.


At the top of the stairs there is a high ceiling (c. 3.42m) with a feature shelf that is next to a large window that adds fantastic light to the landing area.

Bedroom 1 (Main): c. 3.92m x 4.35m
This is a great space that was originally set in a 2-bedroom layout. The vendor wisely chose to redesign this room and it has greatly benefitted from this. Large fitted wall storage, fitted carpet, recessed lighting and window to the front.

Walk in Closet/Office: c. 2.09m x 1.84m
This is a lovely space that is accessed via a door off the main bedroom. Laminate floor, window for light. Currently in use as a home office but would make a superb walk in closet.

En Suite: c. 2.09m x 1.64m (max)
Tiled wall and floors, Mira power shower, radiator, w/c, sink and a frosted window.

Bedroom 2: c. 2.99m x 3.34m
Window overlooking the rear garden, fitted storage and fitted carpet.

Bedroom 3: c. 3.02m x 3.34m
A well-set room with fitted carpet, window and fitted cupboards.

Bathroom: c. 2.09m x 2.36m (max)
Tiled walls and floor, large shower with Mira power shower. Heated towel rail, w/c, wash hand basin and storage unit behind the door.


External Unit: c. 4.70m x 2.49m (ceiling height of c. 3.29m)
Converted garage space to the rear. This has been drylined and a floor put in and would suit a variety of uses. Houses Hotpoint washer and dryer. A deep-dish sink with hot water is another practical element. This space would suit a host of uses from an artist's studio to a home office, den or indeed a hobby space. Complimented by a high ceiling measuring c. 3.29m with a skylight style finish and Louvre lintels deflect light to maximise brightness. A wonderful aspect to the property and really adds an extra element of practicality to this already impressive residence.

To the front, there is off street parking for c. 3-4 cars. A nicely cobbled driveway sits to the side of the home. Gravel as well as mature shrubbery and planting frames the space and there is dual access to the rear garden. One side is particularly wide for ease of access. To the rear of the property is a split-level space with two patios. Mature lawn and trees add that extra sense of serenity. There is even a view of the steeple from the garden with a South Westerly orientation. There may also be potential to extend (subject to planning). This is a quiet cul de sac of only 23 homes, with no through traffic. There is also the additional unit that is described above. A smaller unit houses the Kerosene boiler. It was one of the first inversion boilers fitted in 2008 and has been meticulously serviced on an annual basis.
