DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard, long been considered a leader in the residential sales market throughout the west of Ireland, is bringing to the market one of the finest detached homes to be offered in recent times.
Hazelbrook House on Taylor's Hill is a luxurious two storey, architect designed, detached residence on a private site of almost a third of an acre. Situated on an elevated site, this beautifully presented home is discreetly set back from the Taylor's Hill road, in one of the the most sought after location in the west of Ireland.
Built in 2003, this stylish family home comprises approximately 410sq m of spacious accommodation and is finished to a standard that is nothing short of exceptional. It is easy to get carried away with all the features that this wonderful home has, from its natural stone façade and large double garage, through to the tasteful neutral colour scheme and the use of solid oak, it is clearly evident that a lot of thought was put into the build and finish of the house. The open plan flow of the house has a distinct American feel to it and the current owners have gone to great lengths to take full advantage of the south facing aspect.
From the moment you walk through the front door into the spacious entrance hall, the quality is evident. The most striking thing about the property is how bright it is. From the formal dining area to the impressive reception room — with its stunning Chinese open fireplace, 20ft high ceiling complete with chandelier, and its impressive custom made oak staircase — and through to the homely kitchen, the house never loses any of its natural light. The ground floor, as well as having the open plan reception room and dining area, has a separate living room for more casual lounging. The kitchen which, like most houses, is the focal point of the home, has a gorgeous fitted chestnut kitchen with granite worktops, a raised breakfast island, a Rangemaster double oven and hob, and an American fridge freezer. There is a separate informal dining area, which offers access through double doors to the rear patio. A large utility room with an adjacent pantry is just off the hallway en route to the adjacent garage (with almost 40sq m ) which has twin electric roller shutter doors. There is a huge downstairs bedroom, complete with a en suite and raised Jacuzzi bath-tub, which could easily be converted into another living room or a playroom, should the four first floor bedrooms be enough accommodation.
At first floor level, the large mezzanine landing overlooks the reception area, and the stained glass window to the rear of the house also provides light into a space which quite often is left in darkness. The master bedroom is very impressive with its own private living area (for those who want a break from the children ) and 'his and hers' mirrored sliderobes – the main being a walk-in wardrobe. There is an en suite with tiled floors and walls and a Jacuzzi bath. The second bedroom is another double bedroom with an en suite, and the two remaining bedrooms, which share the main bathroom, are both bright and spacious and really well presented. There is a large converted attic which has potential for further living accommodation or as a further space for the children to run riot.
Being offered to the market with the benefit of having a high energy rating (B3 ), the house has an underfloor heating system and is extremely energy efficient.
The entrance to the property has private security gates and the front garden has a cobble-locked paved driveway and manicured flowerbeds. To the rear of the property there is a wonderful raised private garden with a huge paved patio. The owners have cleverly taken advantage of the aspect, and have built a gazebo for the morning sun and an elevated patio area for the evenings and summer barbecues. There is a tree house for the little ones to hide away from the adults, and a dog house for the pooch – everyone is catered for. And leaving the best till last… there is a stunning water feature which flanks the garden with a limestone rockery — peace and tranquillity guaranteed.
