WHILE THE SITE might be on the smaller side, measuring only .22 acres, this architecturally designed property certainly makes the most of its setting that is packed with manicured gardens.

The Corrin is a contemporary four-bedroom, three-bathroom detached property designed by architects Duncan Stewart and Paul Sinnott, and is currently on the market for €1,800,000.

The home features travertine and oak wide board flooring throughout the ground level, a gas fired underfloor heating system on the ground floor and thermostatically controlled radiators on the first floor, as well as central vacuum and air exchange systems.

Double hardwood front doors open into the entrance porch with glazed double doors leading to the reception entrance hall, which has a floating curved ash staircase ascending to the galleried landing. Here, you’ll also find a timber fireplace with a gas coal-effect fire.

To the left is the formal drawing room with a bay window with French doors to the garden and an attractive Carrera marble fireplace with lead inset. Also, on the left of the hall is a fully fitted utility room.

Located to the rear of the property is the master suite with a double bedroom and en-suite bath/shower room, complete with double sink units and a dressing room.

To the right of the entrance hall is the kitchen, which was supplied by Danish Design. It is fitted with cream modern wall and floor units, granite countertops and a black Aga. The kitchen leads into an oval dining area bordered with glazed windows and doors which open out to the garden, allowing diners to enjoy the tranquil aspect of the grounds.

Also to the right of the entrance hall is a cosy family room and study with a fitted desk, storage and shelving units. A large guest WC completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor, the galleried landing is flooded with light as a result of the atrium effect provided by the glass roof apex.
