Innisfallen is truly a magnificent, detached family home with a perfect blend of period style and modern practicality. The property, which is directedly opposite Malahide Castle, dates from 1908, designed and build by Architect J Leslie O?Hanlon and has classic period features including Bay windows in the reception rooms, an impressive entrance hallway with archway and the majority of the downstairs reception rooms retain the original coving, plasterwork, picture framed windows and period fireplaces. The current owners extended the property to the rear with a contemporary open plan kitchen, dining and family room with large windows flooding these rooms with natural light and added a large utility room with shower room. There are 2 very fine large reception rooms to the front of the house with playroom, study or home office, bedroom, and family bathroom downstairs. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, main ensuite and another bathroom, 2 walk-in wardrobes and a large storage room. The new and old come together as you walk away from the period features in the hall, into the contemporary open-plan kitchen, dining, and family space. Clean lines, lots of glass, vaulted ceiling, wood burning stove and a tiled floor are the first things that strike you until you notice the modern kitchen with countertops and built-in appliances. This room?s design makes the most of the large garden to the rear with sun streaming through the windows, making it bright and welcoming. A real bonus is the sunroom to the front of the house with a southerly aspect which is an ideal room for relaxing or entertaining.
The property is in excellent condition throughout with no work required.
Accessed via electric gates to the front, there is a driveway which is bordered with a lawn area and granite cut stone. There is ample parking for a number of cars and an electric car charging point. The rear garden is a spacious area with large lawn area with box hedging and mature plants and trees offering great privacy. There is a large patio immediately beside the kitchen, ideal for alfresco entertaining and dining and there are a number of other seating areas around the garden.
The site area is approximately 0.24 acres, and the internal floor area is approximately 325sqm / 3506sq.ft
The property could not be better located, situated on the main road into Malahide, opposite the Cricket Club. You can walk into Malahide Village 300mtrs where there are numerous shops, cafes, bistros, restaurants, and pubs. The DART and bus service offer ease of access to the city and beyond. The property is only a short drive to Dublin Airport, Beaumont Hospital and the M1 motorway network. Sports enthusiasts can enrol in any number of outdoor pursuits including sailing, tennis, rugby, cricket, football and GAA. Leisurely walks around Malahide castle or seafront will certainly be on the new owner?s agenda.
To summarise, a fluid, contemporary home emerges and flourishes as the spirit of this Victorian-era home rises again from its heritage bones and this wonderful home will certainly appeal to those looking for a residence with character and a modern twist.
