Description

Casey Kennedy Estate Agents are proud to offer this 4th floor two double bed / two bath (yes it really has two actual bath tubs) apartment with balcony looking out past a peaceful courtyard fountain to the period Bushy Park manor house built circa 1700. This development was very well built to exceptionally high standards in 2003. It is lined on two sides by the verdant open spaces in Bushy Park. It is located across the road from Terenure College, and just a short walk from the boutique shops, supermarkets, restaurants and pubs in Terenure Village.

Viewings by appointment.

Part of an extensive open space network along the River Dodder, Bushy Park extends to 20.5 hectares (50.6) acres. The park originated in 1700 when Arthur Bushe of Dangan, Co Kilkenny, Secretary to the Revenue Commissioners, built the house known as 'Bushes House' on a site of 4 hectares. A John Hobson became owner in 1772 and changed the name to Bushy Park, possibly after the park in London of that name. Purchased by Abraham Wilkinson in 1791 who added almost 40 hectares to the estate, he gave it as a dowry to his daughter Maria when she married Robert Shaw in 1796. George Bernard Shaw was a distant relative, his grandfather being nephew of Sir Robert Shaw (1st Bart). The Shaws were connected with Bushy Park for the next 155 years until 1951 when they sold the estate to Dublin Corporation. In 1953, the Corporation sold 8 hectares to the Sisters of Religious Christian Education (for Our Lady's School) but later re-acquired 2 acres of woodland in 1993. The park is noted for its woodland walks, ornamental ponds, and beautiful Dodder Walk as well as catering for football, tennis, boules, a children's playground, and an artisan market every Saturday.

Bushy Park House is a very well managed development on approx. 7 acres off a tree lined avenue surrounded by beautifully landscaped courtyards and gardens. Adding to the verdant open setting, the majority of parking is underground, with just visitor spaces above ground. It was designed by architects O'Mahony Pike to an extremely high specification, including gas fired central heating, a feature fireplace, traditional coving and full height glazing in the main living rooms.

Early viewing highly recommended.
