The Windmill, Ballybetagh Road, Just off Enniskerry Road, Kilternan, Dublin 18 D18C526€1,500,000 C3


PROPERTY PARTNERS OBRIEN SWAINE are proud to offer this exceptionally spacious detached dormer bungalow residence in a truly magical setting, with a rural ambience in the heart of Kilternan Village belying its accessibility to the city centre and proximity to the M50. This well cared for home was constructed circa 1970 and subsequently extended about 14 years ago creating a particularly fine residence with excellent reception rooms ideal for entertaining as well as every day living areas, and is further complemented by a home office and five bedrooms including an elaborate master bedroom suite with a suntrap veranda off. This home boasts huge potential to further develop with outline planning permission having been granted in 2006 (now elapsed) to build another detached property approx 150 sq m on the grounds.

The gardens, with a sunny south westerly aspect, are an outstanding feature, extending to approximately 0.40Ha (1 acre), they have been professionally laid out under the guidance of the well known expert Verney Naylor. Here exotic plants, trees and shrubs all flourish, definitely a gardener's paradise with a river running along the end boundary with overhanging beech trees, it is hard to believe that there is such a peaceful idyll approximately 14.5km (9 miles) from St. Stephen's Green.

Other items of interest include three ponds, one of which is stocked with Koi fish, and there is a large hen run and two garages.

A fine heated swimming pool measuring approximately 3.65mx 7.5m (12' 0- 24'6"), with a hexagonal shaped timber pool house incorporating filtration and heating equipment is another attraction. A variety of interesting pathways and a Japanese garden all add to the charm.

The entrance to Windmill is just beside Kilternan National School, approached via a private roadway which leads to two sets of timber entrance gates, one set being electrically operated, with a driveway to a generous parking area.
