Full Description

A very fine Victorian residence presented in pristine decorative order throughout having recently been refurbished and upgraded, retaining many original features and boasting a large kitchen/breakfast/family room extension to the rear. This most impressive family home provides generous and well-proportioned accommodation extending to approximately 188 sqm (2,023 sqft). Built circa 1850, Number 23 boasts elegantly proportioned accommodation with many period features including original marble fireplaces, ornate ceiling coving and cornice work, high ceilings and window shutters. The accommodation includes a welcoming reception hall with parquet flooring and fan light over the front door with ornate cornice work, centre rose and arch through to inner hall, off which there are two reception rooms (drawing room and dining room). Off the inner hall, there is a downstairs w.c., hotpress and storage cupboard and a utility room. There are double doors opening to an inner courtyard and beyond doubt one of the property’s finest features is the kitchen/living/breakfast room extension which is exceptionally well fitted with a bespoke kitchen and double doors opening out to the rear garden.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms with the master being en suite and on the first floor return level, a large family bathroom with a pitched ceiling and stand-alone four claw Victorian style bath.

Outside to the front there is a beautifully landscaped garden designed by Paul Doyle surrounded by cast iron railings. To the rear there is a landscaped lawned garden, measuring 22m (72ft) in length, with paved patio area. At the end of the garden there is also a second patio/barbeque area, a garden shed and pedestrian rear access onto Maxwell Lane. This access to Maxwell Lane also provides a buyer with the option of rear vehicular access.

This very fine and exceptionally well-presented family home is superbly located close to Rathgar and Rathmines Villages and a short walk to Terenure Village. Within a short commute to the city centre which is approximately 2.8km (1.75miles) away. There is an excellent selection of amenities in the area including Palmerston Park, Bushy Park and the LUAS at Cowper is within a short walk, as are a good selection of tennis, rugby and fitness clubs.
