Full Description

A most impressive semi-detached family home, constructed circa 1933 by Thomas Stringer, discretely tucked away in arguably one of the best positions within Rathdown. A particularly popular and much sought after family orientated area, this property is graced with style, detail and impeccable workmanship, combined to create the perfect family home. Situated on a large secluded site of maturity and approached by a driveway with ample off street parking, this wonderful property is further enhanced with an outstanding landscaped rear garden of approximately 27m (88ft) enjoying immense privacy and further benefitting from an enclosed side passage to the front.

Internally this delightful family home enjoys elegant well-proportioned accommodation laid out over two floors. At the ground floor level, a refreshing reception hall leads to two beautiful interconnecting reception rooms both of which enjoy mahogany open fireplaces, bottleneck plasterwork, high ceilings, picture railing and original doors, while the dining room offers lovely private views to the rear via French double doors. Standing in the dining room and looking over the rear garden, 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 while to the rear a large light filled modern family kitchen connects via double doors to a bright conservatory with ceramic tiled floor, linking the house to the stunning Indian sandstone slab patio area and side passage. Completing the ground floor there is a guest w.c. and cloak room off the reception hall.

At the first floor there are three particularly large double bedrooms, each room benefits from a cast iron open fireplace, picture railing and high ceilings throughout. A further fourth bedroom with fitted shelving and access to eaves storage, is adjacent to the large elegant family bathroom with a standalone claw footed bath and a separate step-in shower. The ample accommodation is complemented by the truly wonderful, mature and well stocked gardens to the front and rear, which presents as a particular feature, being laid out mainly in lawn with an array of mature flowers and shrubbery, a garden pond and an Indian sandstone slab patio area wrapping around the conservatory.

Rathdown is without doubt one of the most highly regarded residential addresses in South Dublin, with a wealth of amenities available within the vicinity including many excellent restaurants and cafes, such as Mayfield, Bellagio and JDs Steakhouse, along with local boutique shops and newsagents. This is a prime location benefitting from the extensive shopping facilities nearby at Nutgrove, Rathfarnham and Dundrum Shopping Centres.
