Full Description

An exceptional Victorian family home, one of Dublin’s finest, superbly positioned on the Southern side of this up-market and much sought after residential road in the heart of Dublin 4.

Bartra is a truly imposing double fronted residence. To the front a flight of granite steps leads to the hall door, upon entering there is an impressive but welcoming reception hall off which there are four elegant reception rooms. To the left there is a truly magnificent interconnecting drawing room and dining room. The dining room enjoys a feature bay window with pleasant outlook over Eglinton Road. The drawing room to the rear has a large picture window overlooking the rear garden; both rooms enjoy detailed yet subtle period details indicative of the year of construction. These gracious rooms are ideal for entertaining on a grand scale or indeed perfect for comfortable day to day living. To the other side of the reception hall there is a family room located to the front of the property with double doors leading through to a well fitted family kitchen to the rear. On the hall floor return there is a useful utility room with access to the rear garden. From here a flight of stairs lead to the garden level. At garden level there is a bathroom and a series of well-proportioned rooms providing immense versatility in their potential use. The accommodation throughout Bartra is so extensive the garden level could easily be converted to a self-contained apartment which currently benefits from separate side and back entrances. Alternatively these rooms could be used in conjunction with the main residence as additional living accommodation.

On the top floor of this fine family home there are five generous bedrooms all at the one level, a most unusual feature for Victorian family homes. The master bedroom is en-suite and there are two further bathrooms. The entire residence has been impeccably maintained and preserved by the current owners. To the front of the property Bartra enjoys ample off street car parking and to the rear there is an extensive level lawn garden which is well walled with the benefit of an electronically operated vehicular security gate providing additional parking to the rear of the property. There is also an integral outside W.C.and washbasin servicing the garden with secure storage. Overall the property enjoys immense privacy as well as the added benefit of a most important southerly aspect ensuring maximum levels of light throughout the day. Houses of this calibre which offer location, substance, style, space, parking, large gardens and a southerly aspect rarely come to the market.

Eglinton Road is a highly regarded and much sought after mature residential road with some of the finest Victorian family homes Dublin has to offer. A deservedly popular residential location a short stroll to the village of nearby Donnybrook and also easily accessible to Ranelagh. The property is within easy reach of nearby Elm Park Golf Park and Dublin City Centre is 3km away.
