THE WORD BUNGALOW can conjure up images of a house that tight on space and awkward in flow for many house hunters.

But, thanks to extensive renovating and extending, 6 Glenvara Park tells a different story. Revamped to maximise a whole lot more space and light, this former bungalow is now spread over three levels and would make a very special home.

Interesting in layout and updated for modern living within, one of the most stand-out features of this family home is a large elevated rear garden that’s home to two palm trees and a paved BBQ area that couldn’t be more perfect for outdoor entertaining and soaking up the sunshine.

A kitchen designed and fitted by Irish company Kube provides ample floor space and a great ‘working triangle’ – the sign of any great cooking area. With Siemens appliances throughout, this is the dream space for people who really have a love for cooking.

In addition, a separate lounge provides a bit more seclusion and privacy for the best of both worlds and is a great place to entertain guests if the weather puts the garden off limits.

In addition to the marble tiled flooring, American walnut graces the entrance hall and landing that leads you to the four bedrooms and office upstairs.

All double in size, the master bedroom has its an en suite bathroom and even a walk-in wardrobe. However, a particularly special feature is the doorway that opens out to an elevated view of the rear garden.

This home’s corner site location meant this renovation wasn’t done by halves. The floor space has more than doubled in size, making this 2,257 square foot home in Knocklyon a really unique find.

Marlay Park and your pick of primary and secondary schools are big advantages, as well are Rathfarnham, Dundrum and Nutgrove shopping centres all being close by. However, if the city centre calls, you can hop in the car and be there within thirty minutes.
