Set amidst a tranquil and sylvan setting lies 3 Traverslea Close. This unique detached home, with a curved zinc roof, was designed by Stephen Manning of McCrossan O'Rourke Architects and is one of just three houses, constructed by O'Malley developments, circa 2006. No 3 is a home that represents a true display of modern design showcasing 216 m²/ 2,344 ft.² of contemporary accommodation combining clean lines and high quality finishes with a garden designed to ensure enjoyment of the sun throughout the day.
The front door opens into an impressive double height (23ft approximately) entrance hall complete with Crema Marfil marble tiled floor which flows seamlessly into the kitchen/dining/family room setting the tone for what lies ahead. Double doors open into the large reception room with feature fireplace and inset Faber gas log effect fire, sliding patio doors giving access to the delightful rear garden. On the other side of the entrance hall is the study or indeed a home office which is fully specked with built-in units providing excellent storage space and a desk. A sliding pocket door opens into what is most certainly the 'Wow' factor of this home, the open plan kitchen/dining/family room where one is immediately struck by the unique curved ceiling with a height of approximately 13ft. This stunning room is undoubtedly the heart of the house, a wall of glazed windows and patio doors overlooking the garden affords natural light to influx throughout this wonderful room. A new bespoke kitchen designed by Jonathan Williams has been installed just two years ago with timber units hand painted in Farrow & Ball Strong White and Lulworth Blue that are complemented with Calcatta Gold countertops and top of the line integrated electrical appliances. The defined dining area features a luxurious velvet upholstered seating booth and the alcoves either side of the chimney breast are fitted with bespoke cabinetry and there is a cassette Faber gas log effect fire. Off the kitchen is a utility room with bespoke fitted units and is plumbed for a washing machine and dryer. A guest wc completes the ground floor accommodation.
A staircase with glass balustrade ascends to the minstrel galleried landing. This large space overlooks the entrance hall and provides access to the three double bedrooms. The principal bedroom overlooks the rear of the property and has the benefit of built-in wardrobes with chest of drawers, off the bedroom is the luxuriously appointed ensuite shower room. There are two additional double bedrooms both with the benefit of built-in wardrobes and there is a West facing terrace with glass balustrade, off bedroom 2 providing a wonderful solace to enjoy the afternoon sunshine. There is a large family bathroom with separate shower cubicle.
To the front of the property there is off street parking with a pedestrian gate providing access to the rear garden. The charming walled West facing garden encompasses a paved patio and an Astro turf lawn. This low maintenance garden is well stocked with colourful raised beds and provides the perfect, private oasis to enjoy Al fresco entertaining late into the summer evenings.
Traverslea Close is a small cul-de-sac development of just 3 houses, conveniently located in the heart of Glenageary with an abundance of social and essential amenities available in the nearby vicinity to include tennis at Glenageary Tennis Club, sailing in the four yacht clubs in DunLaoghaire and coastal walks along the promenade on the seafront to mention but a few. There are also many highly regarded schools in the area including The Harold School, Rathdown School, St Joseph of Cluny and CBC Monkstown. The quaint village of Glasthule is just a short stroll away where several shops, cafés and restaurants are to be found.
