Description18 Windsor Road is an inviting 4-bedroom Victorian home positioned on the much-coveted southerly side of this premier road. Superbly located in an area of unparalleled convenience, the renaissance of both Ranelagh and Rathmines are a leisurely stroll away with the Cowper and Beechwood LUAS stops and local shopping on Dunville Avenue a mere 4-5 minute stroll away.
Purchased in 1993 by the current owners, the then-condition of No.18 was a very poor state of repair. A sensitive refurbishment and renovation was undertaken with a focus on restoration and modernisation, taking care to preserve its Victorian charm, whilst incorporating modern-day comforts.
This classical Victorian home is both traditional and contemporary - with their family now grown the current owners have configured the accommodation to suit their needs. A welcoming hallway with guest w.c., living room and large open plan kitchen/breakfast/dining room with study off comprise the downstairs accommodation. A cleverly conceived and positioned utility room is located just outside the garden patio doors, offering extra storage. Upstairs are no less than 4 double bedrooms served by a family bathroom. The main bedroom spanning the full width of this property is resplendent as an elegant drawing room. New owners will choose their own layout and configuration, without the need for structural change.
Also of significant merit is the landscaped, southerly rear garden. Sizeable, private and wonderfully mature, this is a place for the entire family - dine and relax al fresco, kick a ball or for those of you green-fingered, enjoy many hours tending to the flowering plants, shrubs and lawn.
Those discerning buyers looking for a beautiful family home, indeed those looking to downsize need look no further.
