Full Description

A most attractive late Victorian residence set well back behind electronically operated vehicular and pedestrian gates which lead to a beach pebbled gravel and slabbed pedestrian path, offering ample off-street car parking. This is a most impressive tastefully decorated home offering deceptively spacious accommodation of approximately 198 sq.m. (2,131 sq.ft.) with a beautifully decorated interior. Upon entering one is immediately impressed with the outstanding cornice work, centre roses and marble fireplaces, not to mention many other original features of its era fully intact including high ceilings, window shutters and original floorboards.

At the ground floor level, the inviting entrance hall leads to two very fine interconnecting reception rooms which in turn open through to a lovely family room and then to the rear lies an extremely bright and spacious kitchen with atrium style skylight and large sliding doors both allowing excellent natural light to flow through, not forgetting a beautifully fitted French Oak Dalkey design kitchen with polished granite worktops. At the upper floors are four particularly well laid out and spacious bedrooms, the master bedroom with an en-suite shower room and large bathroom, both fitted to an extremely high standard of finish. The rear garden is a particular and one of the most outstanding features of this property, extending to 25m (82ft) in length by 10m (33ft) wide, beautifully laid out over three tiers, in lawn and Indian sandstone slab patio areas with a large garden shed excellent for storage and benefitting from pedestrian access to a vehicular lane which is securely locked and opens onto Rathgar Avenue.

Being just a two minute walk from the heart of Rathgar Village, this is a highly regarded and a most sought after address. There are a wide selection of some of Dublin’s finest restaurants, bars, shops, boutiques and local services close to hand in the village not to mention a larger selection of amenities and facilities a little further afield in Rathmines and Terenure. Some of Dublin’s most sought after primary and secondary schools are within easy reach to include The High School Rathgar, Alexandra College, Milltown, Stratford College, St. Mary’s College, Rathmines, Gonzaga College and Terenure and Templeogue Colleges, to mention a few. Also within the vicinity are numerous sporting facilities to include Milltown and Castle Golf Clubs, L.A. Fitness Club, Brookfield and Rathgar Tennis Clubs with excellent public transport facilities including regular bus services and the Luas stop at Cowper offering ease of access to the city centre (just 4km away) and surrounding areas.
