IT’S NOT ALWAYS easy to find the perfect combination of modern comforts in a period home, but Innisfallen on the Dublin Road in Malahide provides just the right mix.
On the market for €1,650,000, this home would provide more than enough space for a family, with 325 square metres to work with.
Innisfallen was built in 1908, designed by architect Leslie O’Hanlon. The property has since been expanded to include an open plan kitchen, dining, and living area, whilst retaining the Edwardian period details that give it so much charm.
Innisfallen is situated across from the Malahide Castle Demesne, making it an idyllic location close to the walking trails, playground, and pitches of the historic property. It is also within close proximity of Malahide village’s restaurants, shops and schools.
The entrance hallway features a red brick archway that leads to the two formal reception rooms, which retains original coving, picture framed bay windows, and period fireplaces.
The modern extension is light-filled thanks to a large skylight, which gives the open plan kitchen a welcoming feeling. The kitchen features a range of built-in fitted Shaker-style presses, a Bosch four ring ceramic hob, a Neff extractor fan, a built-in dishwasher, and granite countertops.
In addition to the reception rooms in the original part of the home, there is also a family room, sunroom, utility room, and playroom on the ground level. In addition, you’ll find a primary bedroom and shower room on the ground floor.
Upstairs, you’ll find four bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom. There is also another bathroom, plus two walk-in wardrobes and a large storage room.
The house sits on almost a quarter acre of land, with ample space for off-street parking as well as wiring for an electric vehicle. Box hedging, mature plantings, and carefully chosen trees add privacy here.
The rear garden has a landscaped lawn with a large patio directly off the kitchen and dining room, creating an outdoor entertaining area for the warmer months.
Love relaxing al fresco? Innisfallen also has another patio further back in the garden, perfect for lounging in the summer sun.
The property is accessed via electric gates from the main road into Malahide, and sits just opposite the National Cricket grounds. Just 300 metres from the door sits Malahide DART station, giving you easy access to Dublin city for a reasonably easy commute.
