Full Description

This unique red-brick property offers a discerning purchaser the chance to own a beautiful villa style family home, steeped in history since its construction in 1830. Formally owned by Countess Markievicz, 1 Frankfort Avenue is conveniently located on this desirable road in the heart of Dublin 6, only a short stroll from the bustling villages of Rathgar and Rathmines and a stone’s throw from Dublin city centre. This rare opportunity to live in a house of this character and charm is not to be overlooked.

1 Frankfort Avenue last changed ownership in 1995, and comes to the market over 20 years later again retaining many of the original period features. The property comprises spacious accommodation measuring approximately 260 sq.m (2,800 sq.ft) including generously proportioned reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room as well as 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms. Outside, there is ample off street parking as well as generous manicured gardens spread over a third of an acre. There is also plenty of potential with outhouses in the grounds, which could be converted to living accommodation subject to the relevant planning permission.

This is an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a superbly located family home on stunning grounds close to Rathgar and Rathmines Villages and a short walk to Terenure Village. The property is also within a short commute to the city centre which is approximately 2.5km 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. The area is well-serviced by a number of well-renowned schools including: St. Mary’s, Rathmines; The High School, Rathgar; Alexandra College, Milltown; Kildare Place School, Rathmines; Rathgar Junior School and several crèches and Montessori schools.
