Sherry FitzGerald is delighted to present to the market 16 Palmerston Place.
This truly exquisite period property provides a rare opportunity to purchase a unique and historical family home located in the heart of Dublin 7. Once home to John O Leary, this magnificent two storey over basement residence is a home of exceptional quality, charm and character. There is a wonderful homely feel about this special house, utilising every inch of available space with emphasis placed on presentation, design and tasteful décor. This property has been refurbished extensively and sensitively since 2001. Many of the original features have been retained, restored and blend seamlessly with renovations ensuring modern standards and comfort. Internally, the gracious accommodation starts with an impressive entrance hallway with ceiling coving and an attractive staircase. Off the hall, there is a beautifully portioned dining room with the original fireplace providing a focal point. From here, the kitchen has an extensive array of units and a spiral staircase provides access to the basement. The family room overlooks the rear garden and opens onto a private roof terrace. The basement has its own door access and could be separated from the main house. There are two interconnecting reception rooms, one with an antique solid fuel stove, large bathroom, a double bedroom and office with garden access. Upstairs on the first floor, there are three double bedrooms (one with ensuite) and a family bathroom.
The rear garden is extremely private and maintenance free with mature planting creating a tranquil feel. It is a lovely area for al fresco dining, young families or simply relaxing. There is a large double garage with electric roller-shutters opening to a vehicular rear laneway.
Local facilities are in abundance whilst only a stones throw from Phibsborough & Stoneybatter and all that they have to offer with restaurants and leisure amenities to include the sports grounds in Mt. Bernard Park, Blessington Basin and the Royal Canal Walk. It is located close to the new entrance for TUD Grangegorman across from Kings Inns, while the Mater Hospital, Botanic gardens and Phoenix Park are a short walk away. Commuting in the city centre is a leisurely stroll, transport links include the Broadstone LUAS stop which is less than a five minute walk, an excellent bus service and a Dublin Bikes station closeby allowing easy access for all commuters. The planned Dublin Metro will have its nearest stop at the Mater Hospital which is less than a 10 minute walk. There is easy access to the N2, N3, M50 and Dublin Airport approximately a 20 minute drive.
All in all - an enviable purchase! This elegant property is the perfect choice for those seeking a mature residence in what is undoubtedly one of Dublin's most central locations.
