29 Ellensborough Grove is a beautifully designed 4 bedroom detached residence located in Ellensborough, Kiltipper.
Ellensborough is a highly sought-after development, bordering the Wicklow National Park, the River Dodder Greenway & the Dublin Mountain Way.
Having been in the same ownership since first built in 1999, this impressive home oozes curb appeal in its slightly elevated position with granite edged block paved driveway and landscaped gardens.
The property is very well proportioned, measuring 225 square metres approximately (including garage) and has been meticulously designed and maintained, being nicely positioned at the end of a quiet cul de sac in Ellensborough Grove.
It anchors on to its environment with some creative planting which adds a level of privacy, only achieved from a mature garden.
This property offers a wonderful opportunity to acquire a fine family home well designed with generous proportions in a sought after location.
The property is in immaculate condition throughout, showing great attention to detail, having had a lot of thought put into its design and layout with no cost spared. There is a lovely flow downstairs with two bright and open living areas to relax in.
In the main living room, a Henley wood burning stove sits in the centre of a stunning antique fireplace redesigned and reimagined for its position as the centrepiece of this room, perfect for warm cosy nights by the fire.
The living room leads to a formal dining room with an impressive bespoke beveled glass panelled wall which allows the light from the south facing position to flood in.
There are solid walnut wood floors throughout the downstairs leading to a travertine stone tiled floor kitchen / pantry with fast temperature response underfloor heating which incorporates ditra matt distribution in a highly insulated room.
The kitchen dining area was fully designed around people who love to cook, listen to music and engage with their guests,.
After entering the kitchen through near eight foot high cherry / walnut bespoke beveled glass french doors the spatial impact is impressive. The eleven window orangery inspired style room is filled with light with glimpses of the garden beyond.

Black high gloss cabinets including a magic corner tray system, oil rack, triple tray press are topped with a solid cherry worktop -
all framed at eye height with a solid cherry bespoke invisibly hung wall mounted tripple delph & glass shelf.
Organically curved within the island sits a pillar tiled with vibrant irredesant slate toned mosaic tiles, offering a contrast to the slate feature stone wall.
Just off the kitchen is a pantry & utility room, with the pantry also featuring bespoke shelving finished in natural cherry with high gloss black cabinets and a solid stone work top.
The kitchen has triple electric velux windows & blind system, fitted with rain sensors for automatic closing, these are all remote controlled, which provides instant control of air and light at the touch of a button.
Large timber patio doors invite you to a private courtyard for that al fresco morning coffee.
This kitchen is truly the heart and soul of the house.
Lighting was a very big part of the design brief, from the kitchen ceiling shadow recess which is fitted with LED lighting in addition to a overhead ceiling light, the room has eight 5 amp lamp plugs controlled from a single switch.
The ceiling lighting above the feature stone wall, kitchen area and hall reception area had the lighting housing resess added at plastering stage using german commercial grade designer lighting with 100 ml wide reflector bulbs.
The landing also hides a xenon shadow gap for beautiful ambient lighting,
The office sliding wall storage system also has an illuminated aftershave / perfume shelf with sunken spotlights.
The design brief didn't stop indoors, the gardens have been illuminated with up-lights on the trees and throughout the garden areas. The door step includes ground fitted uplight's adding to the building's sense of drama.
The lounge area off the kitchen has been fitted with 4 integration wired o.f.c speaker cables to allow for 7.0 true wire free surround sound and fibre cable to enable home cinema requirements.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three of which are very good sized double bedrooms. The two front main bedrooms are both ensuite with one of the bathrooms entirely tiled with botticelli marble floor and wall tiles with a botticelli bordered feature mirror, they each have glass door showers with illuminated extraction fans and both have dual flush concealed water systems for conservation. Additionally, one has underfloor heating with marble mosaic floor tiles.

The landing area is large, bright and airy with a bespoke sandblasted glass light panel and door which leads into into the main bathroom, one of the landing walls above the stairs feature a xenon shadow gap lighting panel.
There are two further bedrooms to the rear, one of which is a double and the other which is currently been used as a home office, with bespoke custom fitted wardrobes and shelving along one entire wall.
Both of these rooms have beautiful views which overlook the Glenasmole Valley and Kiltipper park.
The main bathroom can only be described as pure luxury, with underfloor heating throughout and travertine stone flooring.
This impressive room - measuring five meters long, two and a half meters wide with an almost five meter high ceiling, featuring shadow gaps, the roof height ceiling - has been designed to include exposed wood beams with a dimmable low voltage lighting system.

There is a twin flush one piece elongated water conservation toilet, two designer porcelain sinks with wall mounted taps on a solid wenge African hardwood timber top unit, a large walk in shower measuring 1680 long x 880 wide with a 300 mm polished chrome shower head all powered by a stuart turner brass pump.
All of the 3 pumped showers are on a dedicated shower plumbing circuit,
There is also a scoop bath with floor mounted tap and spray head positioned in front of three long centre tilt wood framed windows, where you can soak in some bubbles while soaking in the majestic uninterrupted panoramic views of the Glenasmole valley mountain range all the way to the Kippure mast 10 kilometres away.
There could not be a more perfect tranquil space to relax and unwind.
The attic provides great storage space, with a stira folding ladder fitted for easy access and is structurally floored with 9 inch beams, while the floor has been packed with earthwool for insulation and sound proofing.
The water tank has also been moved to enable easy conversion to a additional bedroom if so required, planning permission was previously granted for this purpose.
This leaves a large area for the new owners to create a space and put their personal stamp on whilst a lot of the work required to do this has already been completed.
There is also a large garage area that offers fantastic storage space currently and could easily be converted to a self-contained living space or an extra family room leaving further scope for the new owners to extend this home further should they wish.
Ellensborough offers an ideal location in which to live and rear a family with immediate access to the wonderful and natural Kiltipper Park which connects the Bohernabreena reservoir to the Dublin Mountain walking trail and the soon to be completed River Dodder greenway with its intended cycling links to Dublin city centre.
There are many sporting facilities in the area with Thomas Davis GAA sports club very close by and many other sporting, leisure, biking and walking facilities all on the doorstep and many of which are set within visually pleasing and scenic locations.
Many more amenities are all close by and very easily accesable, such as transport links, schools, local shops, the Sq Shopping Centre, Tallaght Hospital amongst many others.
29 Ellensborough grove has always been lovingly cared for and improved on over the years with no expense spared using only high quality materials and craftsmanship by the current owners who are both professional designers.
The thought and imagination that has gone into this home is very visible and clear throughout, the passion for design and attention to detail shows in every corner of the house, from the quirky pet boudoir right to the luxury bathroom and Kitchen / Diner and everything in between.
This also extends to the gardens, which have been a passion of the current owners over the years. The back garden offers great privacy from the private sun trap south facing courtyard with a large Chinese windmill palm centrepiece and towering bamboos, through to the rear of the garden with its twin magnolia trees and raised planting area with french gazebo,
The front gardens offer a great degree of privacy and are framed with a majestic Japanese flowering cherry and Golden weeping willow, with two further pink flowering cherry trees and laurel hedging all providing changing colours throughout the seasons, mixed with sweeping rockeries filled with grasses and seasonal planting that draw your eyes up towards the facade providing a perfect balance to a home that sits comfortably within an ornate mini parkland.
This is a home that is full of charm and charisma and it now offers a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity for its new owners to love and enjoy all it has to offer for many years to come.
