The Coach House is a most beautifully presented three-bedroom family residence located in the magical enclave of Old Conna Village in the prestigious and sought-after address of Rathmichael, Co. Dublin. An absolute rarity in the South Dublin area, The Coach House feels like it is set in the secluded countryside, yet is only minutes from the N11 and M50, 25-minutes from the city centre, and a mere five minutes from Shankill and Bray villages. As such, the new owners will enjoy the best of country living while still being within arms-reach of the city and all the modern amenities we depend upon. Old Conna Village is a truly wonderful and safe environment in which to raise a family, or indeed for those in later life seeking to downsize and escape to a haven of peace and immense beauty.
Built in 1860 as the coach-house for Old Conna House (now John Scottus School), and located in a pretty courtyard, the property is one of nine bespoke residences which form this unique and friendly community. Once owned by acclaimed movie producer Noel Pearson, the property is steeped in Hollywood history having played host to Jack Nicholson and Angelica Heuston and featured in such films as “My Left Foot” with Daniel Day-Lewis. The generously sized courtyard was also the setting for many film and TV productions such as “Braveheart” with Mel Gibson, “Remington Steele” with Pierce Brosnan and “Zardoz” with Sean Connery.
The accommodation (156. 73 Sqm / 1,687 Sq.ft) comprises of a dual aspect open plan kitchen / dining room with double height vaulted ceilings and views over the front courtyard and rear gardens, a generously proportioned living room with large corner fireplace also enjoying views over the front courtyard and rear gardens, and a guest wc. The first floor comprises a large landing with exposed timber beams with a mezzanine study area, three bedrooms with master en-suite, utility press and shower room. The property is approached via a tree lined driveway through a beautiful archway with electronic gated access to the large gravelled courtyard. The spacious 75ft rear garden is presented in lawn, mature trees and plant life with a raised patio area for al fresco dining and entertaining. A Barna Shed sits to the rear offering additional storage for gardening equipment. The garden is large enough to accommodate an extension subject to FPP.
With some of the many features of this quiet home including high ceilings, exposed timber beams and large open plan living accommodation, one will be spoilt by the rustic old-world charm of the home whilst enjoying every convenience of modern living. Some of South County Dublin’s most prestigious primary and secondary schools are located nearby including John Scottus School, St. Gerard`s, Loreto Abbey, St. Anne's National school, Rathmichael Nation School, and Holy Child Killiney. Those who enjoy the outdoor life can avail of a wide range of amenities including three golf courses, the closest of which is located right behind the Old Conna Village courtyard, horse riding, walking routes though the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains or scenic beach and coastal walks through nearby Killiney & Dalkey Hills, and sailing in nearby Dun Laoghaire or Bray.
Finally, transportation links are plentiful including the N11 (QBC), M50, Luas (Brides Glen / Cherrywood) and DART (Shankill) allowing easy access to Dublin City centre and surrounding areas.
