Your vil­lage re­treat close to the city

Southern Real Estate Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

Set on 835 square me­tres of flat land with ma­ture oaks and an easy care gar­den, 39 Vil­lage Way is a bril­liantly re­stored cot­tage that of­fers the ideal bal­ance of location and life­style.

Snug­gling up to the Ard­more coun­try­side and min­utes to ur­ban ameni­ties, the street does jus­tice to its name. Vil­lage Way is a lovely culde-sac of a hand­ful of large prop­er­ties with long-time own­ers. In our view, it suits fam­i­lies seek­ing a safe, quite and won­der­ful location.

Over the last 17 years the cur­rent own­ers have made ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tions to what used to be a dated home, while re­tain­ing its char­ac­ter ap­peal. The home has been de­signed to al­low the sun to cas­cade in­side, which is un­usual for a char­ac­ter build­ing. Con­se­quently, the in­te­ri­ors are bright and airy, with warm tim­ber flooring pro­vid­ing a nice con­trast to the pas­tel walls.

The stylish and ex­tra-large en­trance sets the tone for what fol­lows. The spa­cious open-plan din­ing area and kitchen has the sort of am­bi­ence you’d ex­pect in more lux­u­ri­ous homes. It is the hub of the house and con­nects you to the out­door en­ter­tain­ing ar­eas as well as with those in the lounge.

The lounge opens out via french doors to the BBQ deck, which ex­tends out to the fully fenced court­yard with acres of farm­land as your back­drop. It is the ideal en­vi­ron­ment for re­lax­ing with a glass of wine and a nice book. Or for soak­ing up the plen­ti­ful sun.

The sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion com­prises four good-sized bed­rooms – all with an out­look to­wards the out­doors. They are served by a spa­cious bath­room and two toi­lets.

Park­ing op­tions in­clude a dou­ble garage plus some off-street space.

With the cur­rent own­ers plan­ning to down­size, it opens up a rare op­por­tu­nity for an­other fam­ily to cel­e­brate the com­ing summer and cre­ate many more happy mem­o­ries in this re­mark­able set­ting.

Sale via auc­tion on site at 6pm, Oc­to­ber 12, 2016, un­less sold prior.

View­ing at open homes Satur­day and Sun­day 1pm to 1.45pm.
