To the front, the house is set back from the road behind electric gates.

There is side access to the rear garden as well as an additional door to the rear courtyard area. To the rear there is an external utility space that frees up space within the house and measures circa 2.27m x 1.62m. The rear garden has an enviable south facing orientation that so many long for, but few attain. Mature trees, hedging and planting would lead one to believe they were in a country style setting as opposed to one of South County Dublin's most prominent addresses. There is plenty of scope to extend subject to planning which would only enhance this residence further.
