Full Description

An exceptionally fine mid terrace Victorian residence, superbly positioned on this upmarket residential road, conveniently located between Donnybrook and Ranelagh and easily accessible to Dublin city centre. Behind the attractive red brick façade 91 Marlborough Road boasts beautifully presented and elegant accommodation throughout.

At hall level there is an inviting reception hall with two elegant interconnecting reception rooms off, each of these rooms feature fine marble mantle pieces and decorative cornice work indicative of the era of construction. To the rear of the reception hall there is a bright study with views over the rear garden, this is a versatile room and could alternatively be used as a fourth bedroom.

The garden level is a particular feature of this wonderful family home, the contemporary kitchen by Arena Kitchens is cleverly positioned at the centre of the generous family living accommodation at this level. There is a utility room off the kitchen, to the front there is a well- proportioned dining / breakfast room and to the rear there is a wonderful bright and comfortably family room with a pleasant views over the rear garden. There is also a guest wc and separate entrance door at garden level. The entire space at garden level provides ample family living accommodation ideal for day-to-day living.

On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms, master to rear with extensive built in wardrobes and two additional bedrooms to the front. There is a luxurious family bathroom to the rear and an additional shower room at the very top of the house.

To the front of the property there is generous off-street car parking which is so coveted in this near city location. To the rear there is large garden measuring 27.5m (90ft) which is laid out with an attractive patio outside the garden room, this patio captures all the afternoon and evening sunshine. This in turn leads to a raised lawn flanked by well stocked mature shrubbery. The property has the benefit of rear access onto a gated laneway to the rear of the property accessed off Bushfield Terrace.

In February 2010 planning permission was granted for a ‘garden house’ situated at the rear of the garden, with pedestrian access from the rear laneway. The accommodation was to comprise a home office as well as a workshop and a guest w.c. This provides the potential to once again look at applying for similar accommodation to the rear.

Marlborough Road is a highly regarded south Dublin address. Situated in the heart of Donnybrook but also equally as accessible to Ranelagh, the property enjoys a wide selection of amenities a short stroll away. Some of Dublin’s most sought after schools are within easy reach to include Scoil Bhríde, Muckross Park, Sandford Park, Alexandra College to mention but a few. The convenience of this location cannot be overstated with every amenity at your doorstep as well as the LUAS at Ranelagh providing easy access to both Dublin city centre and south to Dundrum Town centre and beyond.
