Balcony views: Spacious south Dublin redbrick with five bedrooms for €1.4m

6 Ardilea Wood is less than half an hour from the city centre.

FROM THE OUTSIDE, 6 Ardilea Wood could easily be mistaken for a property in the sunny Mediterranean.

The surrounding greenery, red brick finish, balcony and scalloped trim combine to create a residence that wouldn’t look out of place in a residential area of Spain or Italy.

Instead, however, it has an address at Clonskeagh Dublin 14, in a gated, tree-lined estate, and 20 – 30 minutes drive from the city centre, depending on traffic. A five-bed property of 3,370 sq ft, No 6 boasts a classic yet modern interior.

The hallway features light tiled flooring, with a living room located to the left. In here, there’s Amtico oak flooring and a wooden fireplace surround with a coal effect fire inset. Stylish wallpaper throughout the property adds a luxe feel.

To the right of the hall is the dining room, also with a fireplace and wood flooring, where there’s room for a dining table to seat at least eight. That makes a change from pulling mismatched chairs for Christmas dinner.

Ensuring there’s enough room for everyone in the family to unwind as they please, a family room is located to the rear. Sliding glass doors open to the west-facing garden, which is ideal for al fresco dining. 

The kitchen is to the right, with cabinets by Nolan Kitchens, tiled flooring, a centre island and an integrated wine cooler. Extending from here is the conservatory, which is currently used as another dining area. Again, double doors open to the rear garden, where there’s a large sandstone patio area and synthetic lawn area.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is a study with built-in bookshelves and a desk, a utility room and a bathroom.
