Full description:

Back in the 1980's and 1990's, community and joint local parishes held elegant Victorian field-days on the land now home to Enniskerry Demesne - an exclusive enclave of bespoke luxury family homes, each set on gardens designed to maximise lateral separation and enhancing privacy. Minutes' walking distance from picturesque and historic Enniskerry village amenities, where there are two primary schools, Chestnut End also benefits from proximity to scenic walks along the tree-lined estate avenue to Powerscourt gardens and pavilion where one finds a championship golf course and a destination hotel to pamper and entertain.

The house has been family home to the vendors having owned it from "new", and who have lavished care and attention to detail on their wonderfully mature, colourful, gardens, since 1996, having planted over 100 trees, while taking time to enjoy the well-proportioned living accommodation. An impressive central gallery hall and stairwell lends access to a formal dining room also intercommunicating with the large open plan L-shaped eat-in kitchen complete with "Stanley" cooker. The other side of the hall offers two elegant interconnected reception rooms, each with open period-surround fireplaces. Upstairs, there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms (two ensuite).

The walled front garden is mainly laid out in gravel providing access to the generous parking, turning, and circulation space. Established boundary planting lends screening, and includes flowering cherry trees as well as variegated leaf varieties of several specimens. A gated entrance between house and garage lends ready access to the professionally landscaped rear garden set against a mature timber backdrop from the original field boundary, enhanced by over 20 years growth in the thoughtfully planted soft and hard landscaped pleasure garden set out mainly in lawn, but complemented by an extensive terrace/patio area by the house which, in turn, leads to a circular semi-sunken graveled al fresco dining area and, elsewhere boasts a rockery and pumped water-feature complete with a little wooden bridge. Other curvilinear planted zones and beds contain many varieties of specimen plants and trees including several acers, buttermilk camellias, "wedding cake" layered tree, magnolias, azaleas, and rhododendrons. The gardens provide a year-round variety of profuse colour; and to catch the last rays of the evening summer sun a pretty hexagonal garden shelter presides over a split-level terrace ideal for a leisurely barbecue.

Enniskerry enjoys a welcoming rural community atmosphere, with great connectivity thanks to a Bray DART feeder bus service, and direct citybound (44) bus, via Dundrum, connecting with the LUAS there, if Cherrrywood park and ride is not a more favoured option. Ready access to the M.11/N.11/M.50 corridor lends commuters even more choice, and Dublin airport is practically accessible in 40 - 60 minutes depending on the time of day. This is a wonderful area in which to live, raise a family, or for active retirement. So much of Wicklow's famed scenic spots are within an easy drive - Powerscourt Gardens and Waterfall; Glencree; Roundwood lakes; the many safe east coast beaches, not to mention harbours at Bray and Greystones from which to sail or sea-fish. A choice of several championship golf courses are to hand, with sporting, equine pursuits and athletic clubs offering much variety.
