Maytree is a unique and special find in the Irish market. This exceptional, contemporary designed property extends to approx. 170 sq. m (1,830 sq. ft.) standing on a site of approx. 0.61 ha (1.5 acres). The property is very well located, a stone’s throw from the quaint village of Enniskerry and Powercourt Estate, Gardens and Golf Club, but also from Dublin city centre, which is just 13 km away and easily accessible via the N11.
This simple but bold structure is everything you would expect from an architecturally designed property, bright and flooded with natural light. The fluid design effortlessly incorporates the lawned grounds and adjacent escarpment through the large picture windows to allow occupants to fully engage with nature. The stylish and functional living space is spread over two floors with the main living area and bedroom accommodation on the upper level. The lower level having recently been converted extends to approx. 54.sq. m. (581 sq. ft.) and offers further potential as a large office or fourth bedroom.
The main accommodation at the upper level is reached via rising limestone steps to a glazed open porch and entrance hall. The main reception area is open plan with a polished concrete floor. On one side this room has a full floor to ceiling glazed wall, south facing and overlooking the gardens and on the other side a series of French doors opening to an extensive raised terrace. The dining area is spacious and opens to a modern kitchen with extensive polished concrete worktops and a range of high spec kitchen fittings. The cleverly designed kitchen with its touch to open storage conceals a further utility area with extensive wall and floor units. The brightness of the kitchen is further amplified by the large roof light. Also at this level are two spacious bedrooms with concealed wardrobes and the larger master bedroom with en suite bathroom. A study and family bathroom complete the accommodation at this level.
Steps descend to the lower level where there is ample opportunity to transform a spacious room to a large office, fourth bedroom, gym / play room or for further separate guest accommodation. There is a WC with washbasin, store / utility room and plant room on this level.
