1, Springfield Avenue, Templeogue, D6W TP20

€725,000 (SOLD)

This is a distinctive and unique detached four/five bedroom residence of 198 sq. m. (including integral Garage). Situated on a large corner site with potential to extend into the substantial gardens that surrounds the house on three sides. Bordering Rathfarnham, Terenure and Templeogue it is conveniently located - just a few steps from the rear entrance of Bushy Park with leisurely walks along the Dodder and through the park. Designed and built as a bungalow by its Architect owner in 1963 and later extended into the attic as originally intended - to meet a growing family’s needs, this much-loved home is now ready for the next generation. A modern and minimalist house, it has many bespoke design features with a pared-back sense of style. The layout was ahead of its time, reflecting a desire for a more informal style of living than was the norm in the 1960’s, with an open plan Living/Dining area being the axis on which the whole house revolves. Explicitly designed to take advantage of its orientation, coupled with its large picture windows, this is a light filled home which enjoys an array of outdoor views onto the leafy gardens. A house that lends itself to being imaginatively updated this is, as one would expect of an Architect’s home, solidly built, of cavity wall construction and will appeal to those looking for a refreshingly distinctive property with its cedar cladding, textured, exposed brick/block and timber sheeted walls; it offers endless opportunities to create a wonderful family home. There is a selection of schools nearby, including St. Pius National School, Our Lady’s, Terenure College and The High School, to mention but a few. Offering convenience to a family’s daily living, it is just a stroll from Rathfarnham Shopping Centre, and within easy reach of all that the villages of Templeogue, Rathfarnham and Terenure have to offer. There are several bus routes from Templeogue Road and Butterfield Avenue.
