The spacious accommodation stretches to an enviable c. 208 sq mt / 2,238 sq ft and is perfectly laid out for modern family living. There are large and private front and rear gardens with an abundance of off street parking to the front and also access to the large detached garage.

Featuring extensive road frontage, Melrose also possesses obvious development potential (subject to PP) and indeed a feasibility study on possible development opportunities was carried out in May 2021 which took into consideration several recent infill developments along Kilgobbin Road. Based on this feasibility study , and subject to planning permission, there are several potential options to develop the site including 4 x 3 bedroom terraced homes, 3 x 4 bedroom detached homes, 4 x 1 bedroom apartments plus 6 x 2 bedroom apartments, 3 x 2 bedroom apartments and 3 x 3 bedroom duplex apartments.
Close proximity to all necessary amenities is well catered for with the LUAS being within a few minutes walk, the M50 motorway a 2-3 minute drive and Dundrum Town Centre is also within a few minutes drive. Also within walking distance are Sandyford and Stepaside villages with their superb array of local shops, eateries and essential services. A wide variety of leisure facilities are also on the doorstep with superb hill walks in the Dublin/Wicklow mountains a short distance away. Leopardstown Racecourse, Westwood and Crossfit gyms and numerous golf courses are also within a stone’s throw along with Sandyford and Cherrywood Business Campuses.
Viewing is strongly recommended.
