DescriptionThis is a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a particularly elegant Victorian residence of exceptional character, occupying a prominent corner site extending to approximately 0.3 acre at the junction of Elgin Road and Wellington Road.
Further enhancing the appeal of this very impressive residence is the fact that it has retained its full back garden, to the rear of which is an enchanting stone coach house fronting onto Raglan Lane. This is without question one of Dublin 4's most sought after addresses being so close to the city centre and an extensive range of local amenities. Wellington Road is within walking distance of some of Dublin's finest junior and secondary schools, while UCD Belfield and Trinity College are a short bus ride away.
Whilst currently laid out as a very impressive corporate headquarters, the property is ideally suited for reconversion to a magnificent family residence (subject to planning) with its own independent coach house. The property has been refurbished and extended with great flair to provide 405.1sqm (4,360sqft) approx. of stunningly elegant, light filled and flexible accommodation on one of Dublin's most convenient roads. The coach house which occupies one of the city's finest mews sites extends to 141.8sqm (1,526sqft) approx.
Wellington Road, a lovely quiet tree lined road is undoubtedly one of Dublin's most sought after and convenient residential roads within walking distance of St. Stephen's Green and many of Dublin's principal places of business including Silicon Dock at Grand Canal Dock. Herbert Park is within a short walk and provides superb recreational amenities including tennis, bowling and walks around its 34 acres. Excellent local shopping and restaurants at both Ballsbridge and Donnybrook are all within a short stroll as are some of Dublin's finest schools such as St. Conleths, Gonzaga College, St Michael's College, Sandford Park School and Muckross Park. The R.D.S, Leinster Rugby Headquarters and the AVIVA Stadium are all within a short stroll. The property also benefits from being within 15 minutes' drive of the airport via the Port Tunnel.
Outside: As the property occupies a prominent corner site, there is a very good-sized front garden, laid out in lawn with a gravel path and wide side passage leading to the magnificent back garden.
Accessed from the main house is a lovely landscaped formal garden with raised lawn and specimen trees and shrubs surrounding a large pond.
There is pedestrian access from here to a large parking area for seven / eight cars with electric security gate onto Elgin Road.
