Full Description

An extremely well-proportioned family home, superbly positioned along this established residential and family oriented road, arguably one of the best in Rathfarnham. This magnificent home has been well-maintained with the accommodation laid out over two floors, further enhanced with many original features of its era to include mahogany fireplaces and bottleneck plasterwork. Built in 1938, the wide inviting entrance hall leads to two interconnecting reception rooms with a conservatory to
the rear approached from the dining room, a breakfast room, kitchen and inner lobby containing the utility area, guest w.c. and passage to the rear garden. The remaining accommodation at first floor level includes five very fine bedrooms, a bathroom and separate w.c. Excellent storage is available throughout this striking residence with storage being readily accessible under the stairwell and also in the cloak cupboard off the hall. A particular feature of this family home is the magnificent
rear garden, enjoying a sunny aspect extending to approximately 25m (82ft) laid out mainly in lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubbery. An integrated garage with solid timber folding doors to the front offers further storage with obvious potential to convert, subject to planning permission, should one wish to further extend the overall floor area. Excellent off-street car parking is available on the extensive cobble-lock driveway to the front.

Located off Butterfield Avenue, Butterfield Park is a popular mature residential area, only a short walk to Rathfarnham Village and shopping centre. Other shopping facilities in the area include Nutgrove and Dundrum Town Centre. This area is particularly sought-after due to its close proximity to an excellent choice of schools including Loreto Grange Road, St. Mary’s Grange Road, Loreto High School Beaufort, Templeogue College, Terenure College and The High School Rathgar.
