1a Vale View Avenue is a fine detached house on a corner site facing a large green. It is newer than most of the other houses in The Park and built to higher specifications. It has four large double bedrooms on the first floor and a 5th bedroom with ensuite on the ground floor, in a small self-contained unit. In addition there are three reception rooms (including a partitioned sunroom) and two handy attic storage rooms. There are bathrooms on all levels.
Solid oak flooring in the hall, sitting room and dining area creates a natural flow through the house. The spacious sitting room has a large bay-effect window looking out on the green in front of the house. It boasts an attractive white marble fireplace with contrasting black granite hearth. Glazed double doors lead from here to the open-plan kitchen/dining room which is at the heart of this home. The Rangemaster cooking range and the central black granite-topped work space with breakfast bar provide the focal points. To the rear is a spacious sunroom with pine flooring which has been partitioned into two to create an artists studio and a back lounge. This space would be flooded with light if the leylandii trees belonging to this property weren't in the way.
This should be a bright location with a southwest facing back garden and southerly oriented side garden, but thick leylandii trees along the boundary block out an enormous amount of light and take up immense space. The large block-built garden shed is very pretty, but it also takes up valuable space in the sunniest spot in the back garden. Removing these would transform this property.
This property is in a highly convenient location. Just around the corner is a neighborhood shopping centre with a Tesco Express and a large car park. Within the estate is both a highly regarded creche/montessori school and a national school. Across the road is a pedestrian entrance to Cabinteely Park which covers 110 acres with a duck pond, playground, trendy cafe, arts hub and of course plenty of room to walk and relax. Cornelscourt Shopping Centre and the N11 QBC are both within five minutes walk.
Construction - Double leaf walls with internal insulation. Floors and internal walls sound insulated with rock wool. Ring beam at attic level. 9" thick internal joists. It still earns a respectable D1 BER rating even though energy efficiency has been compromised by installing radiators in the shed and in the attic rooms, by fitting a perspex roof in the sunroom, and by an older boiler which is only rated 79% efficient.
The Park in Cabinteely is one of the best family friendly locations in Dublin. It offers a mix of 3 and 4 bedroom family homes with extensive green areas. Within the estate is a large park with a trendy cafe and a very popular children's playground. It also boasts a unique facility in 'The Grain Store', (mart.ie) a popular arts hub catering for all ages, including teens. In addition this estate features the highly-regarded St. Brigid's National School, the exclusive Park Academy Creche and Montessori School, and a handy neighbourhood shopping centre including a Tesco Express, medical centre, pharmacy, coffee shop, take-away and dry-cleaners. This property is just a five minute walk from Dunnes Stores in the Cornelscourt Shopping Centre. The new retail centres in Cherrywood and Carrickmines are also close by. There is easy access to the M50, the LUAS and the employment centres in Sandyford, Central Park and Cherrywood.
