Westerton House is unique. Many will have driven by, possibly hundreds of times, and not know of its existence. It is situated in a secluded location off the Ballinteer Road and is just a 4 minute walk to Dundrum Town Centre where every conceivable amenity is on offer. Accommodation extends to approximately 360sqm/ 3,875 sq.ft, and thus, this is a substantial residence.

It is very rare that a period home of this character in the superb location of Dundrum comes to the open market. Having been built by the Brooks family in the late 1800s, together with its sister house situated to the rear (separate driveway), its red brick façade is both imposing and attractive. Granite steps lead to the impressive arched porch area where a beautiful stained glass door greets you.

The entrance hallway is very impressive and large with high ceilings of over eleven feet and offers a real sense of grandeur. Beautiful crystal light fittings add to atmosphere. The drawing room (currently used as a 6th bedroom) with its marble fireplace is an impressive room. There is a second reception room which serves as a family living space while maintaining all of the features one would expect from a home of this period including the original ornate marble fireplace, chandelier lighting and wall lights. This room also features an elegant bay window where one could imagine a baby grand piano.

On the same level, there is a study with built in floor to ceiling mahogony unit bookshelf extending the length of the room, and a large centred mahogony office table with a sheet of thickened glass on it to give it its due elegance.

Moving to the rear of the same floor, you will find a beautifully bright kitchen which the sun illuminates and leads out the rear of the house down steps to the garden. This kitchen is used for entertaining guests out of sight, serving both alfresco and the dining room next door.

The ground level has underfloor heating throughout and has been extended to encompass an open plan modern kitchen with double aga for cozy evenings, and a very functional utility room hosting washing machine, tumble dryer, additional tall fridge & separate freezer, sink area, storage cupboards & boiler room. The kitchen is both bright and spacious with an atrium style roof light that floods the room with natural light. Sliding double glass doors lead to the large sandstone patio area, and sunny garden which is west facing. A Tylo three person sauna on this level in the modern bathroom also adds a sense of luxury. Also on this level is a large ensuite double bedroom with mirrored built in wardrobes suitable for guests, an au-pair or perhaps a teenager. In addition, the ground floor has a playroom/piano room, and a cloakroom/storage room.
Moving upstairs to the second floor, you will find a hi-specification family bathroom at return level leading to a grand open landing area with built in storage giving access to a further four bedrooms. A large and bright master bedroom with dual aspect and spacious ensuite shower room is very appealing, while two additional large double bedrooms and a single bedroom complete the accommodation.

There is parking for 3 cars to the front of the house. Tall wooden electric gates to the side of this fine home give access to a driveway for a fourth car, and a detached large bespoke concrete garage which stores a multitude. The garden is nicely landscaped with a grass oval island encircled by dark green safety non -slip softened tiles and a sunken sandstone patio area leading into the kitchen which is perfect for entertaining and alfresco dining. The sun moves from the garden area in the morning to encapsulate the patio area at about 2.30pm each day until it sets in the evening. The garden is surrounded by tall walls for privacy & beautiful stone walls on the opposite side.

The location of this family home is in the heart of every conceivable amenity. Schools are within walking distance (Wesley College is at the top of the road, and Holy Cross National School the opposite end), as are shops including Supervalu, Marks & Spencer, Tesco, House of Fraser & Harvey Nichols to name but a few. The Luas is a 7 minute walk away, while the M50 is only a 2 minute drive in the opposite direction. Marlay Park is closeby, perfect for a leisurely walk or afternoon picnic for the children. Meadowbrook leisure centre offers a swimming pool, basket balls courts or just keep fit classes depending on what you want. For night owls, several trendy eateries and bars are available in Dundrum & Ballinteer, just a stroll down the road.

Viewing of this fantastic family home is absolutely essential.
