IF YOU’RE LOOKING for a property that’s packed with character and creativity from the moment you step through the pastel pink front door, 2 The Close is sure to tickle your fancy. 

Built in 2017, the four-bed property in Churchtown, Dublin 14, boasts the character and lived-in feel of a much older home.

Walking through the artwork-filled hallway, you’ll soon notice the attention to detail in every corner of this home.

Measuring 1,657 sq ft and spanning three floors, No 2 benefits from thoughtfully laid-out living spaces and bedrooms.

The hallway is painted an attention-grabbing blue, with herringbone flooring running throughout the ground floor. The living room is to the right, and features a cosy feel thanks to dark walls and ceilings. A large bay window with plantation shutters allows in plenty of natural light.

The kitchen/diner is to the rear, with a more neutral design here. Bespoke handmade cabinets make up one wall, with plenty of storage space and integrated appliances. There’s seating for three at the island, which features a built-in sink.

On the other side of the kitchen is the dining area, where there’s bespoke wall panelling and room for a large dining table. French doors open to the west-facing garden, which is neatly split into a patio and lawn. Outdoor lighting and a spacious seating area make it easy to imagine many summer days and evenings spent out here.

The utility room is off the kitchen, with the washing machine, dryer and more storage space in here. Another storage room and guest bathroom complete the accommodation on the ground floor.

Moving to the first floor, there are three bedrooms, a family bathroom and an en suite bathroom here. The first bedroom, which benefits from the en suite bathroom, is painted a striking cobalt blue on each of the four walls and the ceiling. The second bedroom, which is used as a home office, is a bold bubblegum pink.

Lastly, the master bedroom suite in on the second floor. It includes a walk-in wardrobe that even Carrie Bradshaw would be jealous of, as well as an en suite bathroom with Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware. 

Thanks to its age, No 2 is highly energy efficient. It boasts an A2 Building Energy Rating (BER), with photovoltaic solar panels, an eco-rated gas condensing boiler and a remote controlled heating system.

Tucked away in a quiet cul de sac with two parking spaces to the front, the property benefits from being within a five-minute walk of Nutgrove Shopping Centre, while Dundrum Town Centre can be reached by car in the same amount of time. There’s an abundance of schools and sports clubs within easy reach, plus the option to travel by Luas or Dublin Bus. 

With a one-of-a-kind interior and the benefits of a modern build, 2 The Close is the perfect option for a buyer who’s looking to enjoy their new home straight away.
