Full Description

The truly stunning, light-filled interior of this spacious Edwardian home will certainly be of interest to those looking for a stylish, comfortable home in the heart of Rathgar village.

Number 14 Wesley Road which was constructed in c. 1913 and has the benefit of occupying the largest south facing site in this sought after cul-de-sac.

This has allowed the current owners to dramatically extend the property to an impressive 180sq.m (1,930sqft) which is significantly larger than the neighbouring properties.

The property was carefully renovated and thoughtfully extended with impeccable attention to detail under architect supervision. The remit was to fully capitalise on the important southerly aspect and as a result the house now enjoys wonderfully bright living accommodation throughout with the added benefit of an immensely private and peaceful setting to the rear.

Internally the property is a fine example of creative flair and taste in both architectural layout and interior design which is used to maximum effect to create a home of great warmth and true distinction. The property retains many features of its era including beautiful cornice work, original fireplaces and high ceilings.

Accommodation briefly comprises a most inviting entrance hall with cloakroom and storage.

There are two fine interconnecting reception rooms which lead to a glazed sunroom which seamlessly connects the original period home to the modern light filled rear extension.

This cleverly designed space incorporates a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room which has ample storage, a useful utility room, a shower room and a bright and spacious versatile room which could be an additional living room, a bedroom or indeed a home office.

The rear extension is centred around an enclosed south facing patio ensuring maximum levels of natural light throughout the principle rooms. There are floor to ceiling windows and doors leading to each of the principle rooms surrounding the courtyard which when opened create a wonderful open- plan space ideal for entertaining or simply day to day living.

The entire ground floor benefits from under-floor gas fired central heating.

On the upper floors there are three generous double bedrooms, two on the first floor including the master bedroom which is en-suite, and a bathroom with a shower/Jacuzzi bath and under floor heating.

The third bedroom is located on the second floor and enjoys a degree of privacy from the principle residence.

The courtyard garden is well planted, enjoys day long sunshine as well as immense privacy and seclusion.
The property further benefits from pedestrian rear access onto a private lane accessed from Rathgar Avenue.

Wesley Road is justifiably a most sought after residential address being positioned in the heart of Rathgar Village with enviable conveniences available on its doorstep including regular bus routes and LUAS servicing access to the city centre and surrounding areas, not to mention the locality being spoilt for choice with a wide selection of fine restaurants, bars, shops, boutiques and local services to hand.

Some of Dublin’s most prestigious primary and secondary schools are within easy reach including The High School Rathgar, Alexandra College Milltown, Stratford College, St. Mary’s College Rathmines, Gonzaga College, Terenure and Templeogue Colleges, to mention a few. Also close by are a number of sporting facilities including Milltown and Castle Golf Clubs, the Dartry Health Club and Rathgar Tennis Club, all easily accessible in addition to the picturesque Palmerston Park which is only a short stroll.
