Millicent Hill is approached from Kilcroney Lane, a short distance West of the N11, via a shared private tarmacadam laneway leading to electric gates which reveal an impressively landscaped garden through which the sweeping driveway invites one to the hall door, or towards the detached garage, at will.
The iconic 269 sq.m. / 2,895 sq.ft design features blue Bangor roof slates and cedar cladding to the first floor accommodation, where one finds a truly impressive suite of light-filled rooms, commencing with a living room featuring a marvelous picture window affording generous views over the surrounding countryside to the Irish Sea on the horizon; in turn opening to a fine principal bedroom suite with great views, luxury ensuite, dressing area, and private study / nursery bedroom.
The ground floor's welcoming L-shaped reception hall seigues seductively to an intimate dining room; an integrated dual-aspect kitchen; four bedrooms (two of which are ensuite); family bathroom; and a useful back hall complete with larder, a utility room, and boot-room, conveniently positioned opposite the large detached garage block.
This is a wonderful place in which to live,- the communities of Enniskerry and Kilmacanogue are close by, as is the retail therapy of Avoca Handweavers or Powerscourt Pavilion where the gardens are noteworthy; while Dublin Airport is normally within 40 minutes' drive via the N11 / M11 / M50 corridor; while Bray D.A.R.T., or Cherrywood LUAS, lend commuter choice; "Aircoach direct",servicing Bray, via Shankill.
There are excellent primary and secondary educational amenities in close proximity; and leisure pursuits really well catered for include golf at Powerscourt, Druids Glen, and Dun Laoghaire's new course at Ballyman; sailing and shore-angling in Bray and Greystones; tennis; GAA; and abundant hill-walking and pony-trekking routes in the Dublin foothills and Wicklow mountains.
Having driven through the electric gates and along the sweeping driveway, there is a generous graveled frontage leading to the detached garage block.
Neat lawns, bounded by a wide variety of mature trees; flowering plants and shrubbery, are set off by a profusion of seasonal colour from a selection of specimen plants including several Camellias, two Weeping Pear Trees, Thuja, Silver Birch, Japanese Maples, a Yew Tree and Bamboo in turn bordered by mature Spruce Trees.
The original owner of the grounds planted a magnificent Eucalyptus Viminalis and is on the grounds of the property, along the banks of the Dargle, which was listed as a European heritage garden.
