Full description:

Sherry FitzGerald present Cooldrinagh, a stunning detached residence of exceptional quality of set on circa 1 acre of beautifully landscaped gardens.

Cooldrinagh was designed F.G. Hicks in 1903 and built by Samuel Beckett's father William in 1903. It is a wonderful example of the Arts & Crafts style. The property is steeped in history, being the birthplace and former family home of Samuel Beckett, who spent his childhood there. The property has been refurbished in recent years under the supervision of renowned London based heritage architect Philip Dinkel.

Internally no expense has been spared in creating a luxuriously appointed yet comfortable home where the old combines effortless with modern convenience. The well-balanced accommodation is both spacious and light filled with the main reception rooms and bedrooms overlooking the glorious sun drenched gardens which are very private.

Downstairs there are three large reception rooms plus a guest cloakroom and toilet, kitchen/breakfast room/lounge, and a generous utility room with access to a large attic storage room.

The first floor has been transformed into a luxuriously appointed master suite with a double bedroom, lounge, en-suite his and her bathrooms and a large dressing room. The lovely room enjoys sweeping views over the gardens and enjoys sun throughout the day due to its south and west facing facades.

On the second floor there are a further two double bedrooms both with en suites.

A real feature to Cooldrinagh is its beautiful award-winning gardens of c.1 acre. Due to their southerly aspect, the cottage style gardens are sun drenched and enjoy a high degree of privacy. The herbaceous borders and feature flower beds are well stocked with flowering perennials and annuals and shrubs, ensuring interest and colour throughout the year. A sweeping lavender lined gravel driveway leads you to the front of the house and a set of electric double gates brings you to a secluded granite stone cobble locked parking area with double garage. The gardens wrap around Cooldrinagh with both large lawn areas and secluded corners.

The property enjoys a prime corner site with extensive frontage onto both Kerrymount Avenue and Brighton Road. The property is convenient to Foxrock village and within easy access of the M50 and the Luas at Carrickmines. In addition, there is easy access to the N11, Cornelscourt, Cabinteely, Leopardstown and Stillorgan.

There is a wide variety of recreational facilities and clubs close by including Carrickmines Tennis Club, Foxrock Golf Club, Westwood Fitness Centre and Leopardstown Racecourse, Golf Club and Driving Range.
