Description17 Serpentine is a luxury three bedroom family home developed by Red Rock Developments and situated in the heart of Ballsbridge. Located in a terrace of period properties which date back to the turn of the twentieth century the Georgian façade of no. 17 is all that remains of that era.

The property has the benefit of a private front driveway which is large enough to accommodate two cars. This has been finished in granite sourced from Italy which ties in beautifully with the soft landscaping. The boundary is completed with replicate iron railings/gate with detailing reflective of the Georgian era so as to blend seamlessly with the neighbouring properties.
