Full Description

A most impressive double fronted family home constructed c. 1947 enjoying an enviable setting discretely tucked away in arguably the best position within Rathdown.

To the rear there is a magnificent landscaped garden of approximately 27 m (88 ft) and further benefits from a garage to the side which could easily be converted subject to planning permission to increase the living accommodation if desired.

Internally this wonderful family home enjoys elegant well-proportioned accommodation laid out over 3 floors. At ground floor a welcoming reception hall leads to two very fine interconnecting reception rooms both of which enjoy a lovely private outlook both to front and rear. Standing in the drawing room to front looking out through the bay window it is hard to imagine you are only 5km from St. Stephen’s Green. There is a comfortable family room located on the other side of the reception hall. To the rear there is a breakfast room which leads through to the family kitchen which is well proportioned and has a feature corner window and seating area overlooking the garden beyond. At ground floor there is also a guest wc off the reception hall and a covered side passage accessed off the kitchen with utility area and access to the garage.
On the first floor of this fine family home there are four particularly large double bedrooms and on the return there is a wc and a shower room. A staircase leads from the first floor to the attic where there is a large attic room with contemporary bathroom off. The ample accommodation is complemented by the truly wonderful mature and well stocked gardens to front and rear. The rear garden is a particular feature laid out in lawn with an array of mature shrubbery, herbaceous borders and mature trees. There are 2 patios to take advantage of day long sunshine and also a feature garden pond.
