Internally the bright and spacious elegantly proportioned accommodation extends to an impressive 340sq.m (3,660 sq.ft) over three levels and briefly comprises an entrance lobby with glazed stripped oak doors opening into a welcoming reception hall off which is a stunning drawing/dining room with ornate ceiling coving and ceiling rose and dual sliding sash windows overlooking the West Pier Coal Harbour across Dublin Bay to Howth. A sitting room to the rear also avails of the dual sliding sash windows with this room flooded in light from the southerly aspect. On the hall return is a very well fitted kitchen with steps leading to a breakfast room. These rooms both overlook the rear garden and a guest w.c. completes the accommodation at this level. Upstairs there are five well-proportioned bedrooms, a family bathroom, a shower room and w.c. The basement level extending to approximately 100sq.m (1,076 sq.ft) is currently laid out as a recording studio and offers huge scope to a discerning purchaser to reinstate into reception accommodation or alternatively create a separate apartment or au pairs quarters. The private rear garden is a particular feature of this family home with its enviable southerly aspect measuring approximately 17m (56ft) in length and is laid out in patio over two levels bordered by mature shrubbery, trees and planting with access to the gas boiler house, outside socket and tap.

There is a host of primary and secondary schools surrounding the property and the DART and bus are located just opposite.
