Dromore is a delightful, detached five bedroom Edwardian family home in the Arts and Crafts style, on a large rectangular shaped site of 1.1 acres / .44 Ha approx. in the heart of the leafy Burnaby Estate. Dating from 1906 this truly special home retains all its original character and charm whilst having been substantially upgraded, most tastefully within the past 15 years achieving a B3 BER, remarkable for a period property. This is a fine, comfortable family home seamlessly combining its period features with such modern day comforts as Marvin double glazed windows, Geothermal heating (underfloor heating downstairs), solar panels and high levels of insulation. There are wonderful high ceilings throughout with decorative plasterwork in the main reception areas, pitched and eaved features in the bedrooms, large casement windows which marry the home and gardens beautifully, original chimney pieces and internal panelled doors lovingly restored to their natural finish.
Internally this deceptively spacious home of 301 sq. / 3,240 sq.ft. approx is infused with natural light and has the perfect balance between the formal reception and everyday family rooms many of which enjoy dual aspect views over the gardens. The enclosed courtyard just off the family room provides many possibilities. The unique tri level landing with its feature brick wall, staircase, ceiling and two rooflights leads to five well-proportioned double sized bedrooms, main en suite, and the family bathroom.
A special feature of this lovely home is its expansive gardens extending to over an acre which are mainly in lawn, enclosed by established tall hedging, a variety of mature trees and high timber entrance gates. They also enjoy the perfect orientation for all day sunshine. Three garages at the end of the driveway, two of which interconnect were previously used as a teenager's den and offer great potential for a variety of uses.
The property is within The Burnaby Architectural Conservation Area (ACA) which has a residential zoning with a density of 4 houses per acre. By virtue of its sizeable gardens and zoning, the property has obvious potential to enlarge and further develop subject to the necessary planning approvals.
Dromore occupies a wonderful setting within walking distance of Greystones Golf Club, the Town Centre, DART station, south beach and an abundance of amenities. The Golden Mile of sporting facilities is just around the corner and includes such local clubs as rugby, GAA, tennis, soccer; driving range, athletic tracks, all weather pitches and Shoreline swimming pool & fitness centre. The Town boasts excellent primary and secondary schools, an array of eateries, cafes, cosy pubs, boutique shops, supermarkets, library and much more. The harbour, marina and seafront with boating, fishing and swimming are all close to hand. Commuting to Dublin City, centres of employment and education is well catered for with the N11/M50, DART, TFI Bus routes and Aircoach all within easy reach.
In summary, Dromore is a stunning, highly energy efficient family home on sizeable gardens in this sought after residential setting beside an abundance of amenities.
