Full Description

An elegant family home, superbly located on this highly convenient road in the heart of Rathmines Village. A two storey over garden level Georgian residence, presented in pristine decorative order, having been recently refurbished throughout. Dating from circa 1839 and retaining many of its period features including ornate ceiling, cornicing, and marble fireplaces. Set well back from the road, 3 Leinster Square offers ample off street car parking, with granite steps leading up to the entrance hall, which in turns opens into one magnificent reception room spanning front to back, on the other side of the house a fourth bedroom/hall floor second reception room which would be easily reinstated to it’s original use. Both of these rooms have ornate cornice work and attractive marble fireplaces. There is also the family bathroom off this level.

On the first floor level there are three generous bedrooms, the master bedroom with ensuite and all of which have built in wardrobes. The garden level has generous family accommodation, to include a separate entrance from the front and an under the stairs store, with the kitchen/breakfast room to the front, dining room to the rear, and a large family room off the kitchen, and a useful downstairs shower room. The kitchen/breakfast room is at the heart of this welcoming family home (off which there is a shower room complete with antique fittings), and double doors leading out to the rear garden, off which there is a useful storeroom.

3 Leinster Square was built by John Butler, architect, builder and developer, and Arthur Williamson. Leinster Square was originally named Ulster Terrace and Connacht Terrace and was originally gated. Number 3 is superbly positioned on this highly desirable and convenient road in the heart of Rathmines village and a short walk to Ranelagh village. There are an abundance of superb restaurants including Elephant and Castle, Public Houses and excellent shopping including the newly refurbished Swan Centre, SuperValu, Lidl, Aldi, Dunnes, Tesco as well the renowned Mortons in Ranelagh. Other amenities are the restored Rathmines public library, the Stella Cinemas in both Rathmines & Ranelagh, the Omniplex Rathmines Cinema, and a multitude of sporting facilities including the Leinster Tennis and Cricket Club, Brookfield Tennis Club, and the Swan swimming and leisure centre. Some of Dublin’s most valued primary and secondary schools are in the vicinity including St Mary’s, Gonzaga, Muckross Park, Sandford Park, Alexandra College, Scoil Bhride, Ranelagh M.D.S., Kildare Place, and St Louis Rathmines. The location is well serviced by public transport – Rathmines offers multiple bus routes into town, and the LUAS in Ranelagh is a five minute walk away. It is a pleasant 25 minute walk via the canal to reach St Stephen’s Green, and Dublin’s primary business, financial and shopping districts.

Viewing of this very fine double fronted residence is highly recommended.
