Full Description

Built in 1926, Bective House is an elegant detached double fronted family home of distinction. When built this was the principle residence in the original Bective Terrace which comprised of nine homes, four either side, in the borough of Grangegorman. The residence is well recessed from the road, accessed via electric gates, with a large gravelled front drive giving the occupants a great deal of privacy and ample off street parking. There are raised flower beds edged with railway sleepers and mature trees and shrubs that add further to the privacy enjoyed by this property. The rear garden was landscape designed in 2004 and is utterly enchanting. There is an extensive mint fossil Indian sandstone paved area immediately to the rear of the house accessed from two sets of French doors. The manicured lawn is bordered by Liscannor stone raised flower beds, stocked with an abundance of flowers, specimen trees and shrubs, that serpentine down to the rear boundary. Discreetly incorporated into this beautiful leafy haven is a second circular patio area, bounded by Japanese Maples and black bamboo, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. There is also a built-in, brick barbeque. The garden extends to approx. 20 metre/68ft in length. The 18 sqm shed / hobby room is equally screened with thoughtful planting and reuses the original terracotta roof tiles from the main house.

Beyond the handsome facade double doors lead to an entrance porch and in turn one enters an elegant reception hallway with proportions indicative of the era in which the property was built. The impressive entrance hall has high ceilings, two archways, two recessed alcoves and black and white Victorian quarry tiles. To the right one enters two wonderful interconnecting reception rooms with high ceilings and feature marble fireplaces and solid oak floors. The front reception room has a bay window overlooking the front garden and sliding doors lead to the rear reception room and in turn French doors lead to the patio area in the rear garden. A rear hallway also leads to the rear garden and in turn the kitchen/breakfast room. There is an integrated domestic garage accessed from the hallway with automated roller shutters to the front drive. At first floor level there are four large double bedrooms, two of which are en suite and a very large family bathroom with marble tiles and a four piece bathroom suite including a free standing Victorian bath. The entire second floor level attic conversion is currently used as a large master suite.

One is immediately struck by the amount of natural light that prevails throughout the house. The accommodation is immaculately presented throughout having been lovingly restored during the 15 years the family have been in occupation where they have combined the elegance of the era in which the property was built with the style and comfort of a modern family home. The house was extensively renovated and rewired and replumbed in 2002. In 2007 the roof was replaced and the attic space was converted to facilitate the current use as a bedroom and en suite. In 2008 Marvin windows were installed to the front of the house and Rationale windows and French doors were installed to the rear.

The concept of connectivity is paramount in relation to how one thinks about this location. The city centre is easily accessed on foot, by bike and car as well as enjoying excellent public transport links. The M50 Road network and airport are easily accessed in the other direction. The new LUAS cross city line, Phibsborough station is less than a 5 min walk away. The nearby Busåras, Connolly and Heuston stations give exceptional intercity access. The property is ideally located with a host of family amenities close by; Dublin Zoo, The National Botanic Gardens, The Phoenix Park , Croke Park and the new DIT campus to name but a few.
