DescriptionAll too rarely do these magnificent 3 storey over garden level period residence come to the market with their magnificent 165 ft long back gardens intact.
Extending to over 370 sqm / 4000 sq.ft (approx) this handsome end of terrace period residence incorporates wonderfully elegant and flexible accommodation, which has retained its numerous attractive period features including ornate ceiling cornice work, marble fireplace, window shutters, etc.
An outstanding feature of No. 18 is the extensive well laid out back garden which provides an oasis of tranquility in the heart of the city. Laid out lawn with a graveled path bordered by box hedging leads down to the attractive detached garden studio to the rear.
Timber gates at the rear of the property provide vehicular access from Lansdowne Park to the generous off-street parking area and the delightful detached 140 sq ft garden studio, which is suitable for a variety of uses, such as a gym, home office, artists studio etc. This area also provides excellent potential for a spacious mews residence (subject to planning permission).
Situated at the Ballsbridge end of Lansdowne Road directly opposite Lansdowne Place, Dublin's most prestigious apartment development, the property benefits from one of Dublin's most convenient locations with an extensive choice of the city's principle amenities, within a short stroll. Just some of these amenities include the 34 acres of recreational gardens in Herbert Park, the Avivia National Rugby and Soccer Stadium, numerous business headquarters in Ballsbridge, St. Stephen's Green, Merrion Square and the South Docks IT Hub. Dublin Airport is within 20 minutes drive via the Port Tunnel.

Outside A pedestrian gate leads to the walled front garden with granite steps to the hall door. A side entrance provides access to the magnificent 165 ft (approx.) long back garden, which is laid out in lawn with a variety of well-stocked flower beds and mature trees, which provide excellent seclusion. A graveled pathway, which is bordered by box hedging, leads down to the impressive 140 sq ft (approx.) studio. Located beside the studio is a small kitchenette and wc. Due to the excellent frontage on to Lansdowne Park, the well-established precedent on the laneway and the great length of the back garden there is excellent potential to build a very good sized mews at the end of the garden and still retain rear access to the main house should one wish to do so (subject to planning permission).
