Full Description

48 Rathfarnham Road is an exceptionally fine double fronted semi-detached family home, superbly presented and conveniently located in the heart of Terenure.
Built circa 1946, the quality and design of the original build remains evident in this sympathetically upgraded and extended property. At approximately 185sqm (1,991sqft) the spacious accommodation enjoys a welcoming entrance hall leading through to a large living room enjoying polished French oak timber flooring, large bay window and feature fireplace. This leads directly to the formal dining room which in turn opens through to the spacious family area and kitchen, a room benefiting from a solid fuel stove providing additional heat and comfort.

A separate room to the front is currently in use as a study but could easily serve as a bedroom or additional family/ play room given the direct connection to the downstairs w.c. and shower room. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a generous family bathroom. An additional feature of this stunning home is the spacious attic which provides the option of conversion for luxurious master suite.

All renovated rooms including bathrooms, have been dry-lined and the in addition, the extension has been wrapped in 100mm external insulation and 190mm of solid insulation in the ceiling. 48 Rathfarnham Road is double-glazed throughout and in addition, the windows to the front have been sound-proofed using an extra-thick front windowpane, which has been laminated. The heating system is run from a top of the range Viessmann gas boiler with a 250lt hard-insulated hot water tank. This system takes advantage of the lower energy tariffs charged in the early AM hours to heat the water and store it in the super-insulated tank, providing constant hot water.

To the front, the property is bordered by mature laurel hedging, granite kerbing and seasonal shrubs providing additional colour. This delightful property further benefits from secure parking for up to four cars with a beautifully landscaped rear garden, decorated with raised flower-beds and a patio area perfectly placed to catch the afternoon and evening sunshine ideal for al fresco dining.
