Full Description

An outstanding opportunity to acquire a magnificent imposing semi-detached double fronted bay windowed Victorian period residence set out over two levels, boasting generously proportioned accommodation that retains all the period embellishments of the era. Securely positioned at the top of Marlborough Road behind electric gates with an extensive, wonderfully planted and private sunny south facing rear garden.

Marlborough Road needs little introduction as it is one of the finest sought after roads in South County Dublin. It is renowned for its beautiful tree lined sylvan setting positioned opposite Glenageary DART Station and it generally is known to have generous front and rear gardens.

Larnaca is a particularly fine example of the Victorian period houses on the road. On entering the property through the electric gates, it is immediately obvious how wide the site is and how much parking it offers. Once inside the generous proportions of the reception hall, dining room and drawing room don’t disappoint and all retain the period features of the Victorian era. The rear section of the property is laid out as a kitchen, snug/den and a home office/study and there is also an attractive enclosed courtyard. Many of the neighbouring properties have opened up the entire of this back section of their property and extended into the south facing rear garden. The potential here is boundless.

Upstairs is where the property really comes into its own. On the return there is a lovely family room which could easily double up as a fifth bedroom. Off the bright generous landing are four excellent double bedrooms all on the same level, the master with en suite and a family bathroom concludes the accommodation at this level.

The extensive gardens are a particular feature of this superb family home as they have beautifully matured over the years and provide wonderful seclusion and privacy all steeped in stunning colour throughout the year from the wide selection of specimen plants lovingly tended to by the vendors. The garden has a sought after sunny south facing orientation and enjoys afternoon and evening sun, ideal for al fresco dining. It measures approximately 33.5m (110ft) in length with an overall site area of approximately 1/3 acre.

This is an ideal house for a family to grow into. It’s position in Glenageary makes the location one of the most desirable to live in. With Glenageary DART Station at the foot of the road, it provides access to a host of primary and secondary schools and makes commuting to the city centre very simple. There are many other schools within walking distance such as the Harold, Rathdown, Sharavogue and Castle Park. The superb amenities in the villages of Glasthule, Sandycove and Dalkey Town Centre are just a 10 minute walk away and provide boutique and specialist shopping, cafes, wine bars, pubs and some of the finest restaurants in South County Dublin. The facilities of Dun Laoghaire Town Centre are just a few minutes further afield. The close proximity to the seafront allows for runs, walks and swims in the Forty Foot. There is also a huge amount of recreational and leisure facilities surrounding the property which include Glenageary Tennis Club, Cuala GAA/Dalkey United, hockey and rugby clubs, just to mention a selection. The four yacht clubs and extensive marina at Dun Laoghaire Harbour will also be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiast. The M50 is less than 15 minutes away, providing ease of access to all the major road networks.
