Edited 2 months ago


Turley Property Advisors are delighted to bring No. 53 Palmerston Road to the market. This is, without doubt, one of the most inspirational period homes to come to the market in recent times. Having been acquired by its current owners in 2005 the property has been maintained to an extremely high standard following a magnificent transformation in the early 2000’s. The result is the creation of a captivating interior which extends to almost 4,000 sqft.

The refurbishment that has been carried out at No. 53 is immensely stylish and the breath taking interior that awaits you will not disappoint. No expense has been spared in creating this amazing family home where the use of only the finest quality materials, and attention to detail ensures it really is a home of distinction on one of Dublin 6's premier roads.

This is truly a house to be lived in and enjoyed on all levels. From the moment you step through the inviting front door into the elegant entrance hallway, one cannot but be impressed - soft hues, warm tones and an abundance of natural light greet you. Two beautifully proportioned interconnecting reception rooms with fine period detail are ideal for entertaining. The adjoining room makes a perfect study. Upstairs, on the first floor return, a contemporary glass bridge connects to a double bedroom which seems to float above the garden. There are a further 4 sumptuous bedrooms on the first floor proper and a spectacular shower room with marble staircase which leads to a luxurious family bathroom.

Perhaps the biggest transformation however has taken place at the back of the house where a sweeping limestone staircase brings you down to the garden level in to a stunning double height contemporary space. Wall to wall, floor to ceiling, reinforced glass windows overlook and open out onto the garden creating a dramatic backdrop to the striking interior contained within. This superbly designed open plan area contains the impressive garden room, a state of the art Poggenpohl kitchen and an informal dining area which spans the width of the house. Tall sliding doors from the kitchen open into a gracious bay windowed family room, completing the reception accommodation at this level. The all-important utility, guest WC and generous storage facilities are all located off an inner hall which has independent access to the front.

A beautiful 75ft long rear garden is a real feature of this fine home, professionally landscaped to exacting standards; it is a wonderful recreational space with large a limestone patio area, lawn and vehicular access to the rear. The front garden too has been transformed and now provides invaluable secure off street parking, with gravel parking area and box hedging.

The tremendous thought, care and imagination that was injected into this fabulous home from the early stages of redesign through to the final finishing touches, has ensured the immensely successful fusion of Victorian and contemporary architecture without compromising the integrity of either. This is a genuinely special and unique family home where a sleek contemporary style, high quality finish and exceptional attention to detail really does set this house apart from the rest.
