Lots of surprises - all good - lie beyond the hall door of this exceptional detached home at Collinstown.

Stylish and contemporary, this four-bedroom family home, fully renovated around 2017, measures up at approximately 2,000 sq.ft (185.87 sq.m).

On entering the residence one can see through the wall of triple-glazed sliding doors in the spacious open plan kitchen/dining/living room to the south-facing sun terrace, and beyond that, to a beautifully-maintained garden which is host to a selection of trees, hedging and at the end of a gravel walkway, a garden shed.

The tarmac sun terrace has a seating area with a solid fuel stove, TV point and awning making this a wonderful setting for lazy summer days.

A welcoming entrance hallway, leads to the open-plan area which is beautifully presented, with a modern fitted kitchen having soft closing units, quartz worktops and a matching island plumbed for sink. There is tiled flooring through to the dining and living area which have a Dimplex electric fire and built in storage and shelving units.

Separately, there is a cosy sitting room with built in storage units. Adjacent to the kitchen there is a utility room fitted with soft closing wall and floor units; there is also a walk-in hot-press and guest WC.

All four bedrooms are doubles with the master suite having a dressing room, walk-in wardrobe space with laminate flooring and a part-tiled ensuite.
