DescriptionNumber 22 Garville Avenue is a most attractive double-fronted villa-style family home of substantial proportions on superb, private gardens, ideally positioned on this quiet and mature residential road, in the heart of Dublin 6. This charming Victorian property, constructed circa 1840, is laid out over two levels and offers well-appointed versatile accommodation measuring 261 sq.m. / 2,809 sq.ft. approx. with rooms of generous proportions retaining many of its original features. Large beautifully planted, well-maintained front and rear gardens are a real feature of this property with valuable vehicular access with parking from Garville Lane. Lovingly maintained by the same family for the last 75 years, this fine home would benefit from upgrading and modernisation. It now comes to the market with full Planning Permission (DCC Reg Ref 2007/19), which has recently been granted for a 44sq.m. rear extension at garden level and full internal upgrade. This would extend the accommodation to 305 sq. m. / 3,283 sq.ft. approx., providing five generous bedrooms, a large open plan kitchen/dining and sitting room opening onto the garden, formal reception rooms at hall level, as well as flexible and extensive storage throughout. The convenience of this location cannot be overstated with Rathgar and Rathmines within a gentle stroll. There is an excellent range of well-established primary and secondary schools all within easy access. The area is well served by excellent bus routes to and from the city centre and is approximately 3 miles to St Stephens Green. All in all, this presents a wonderful opportunity to create a unique home of style and distinction on one of Dublin 6's most sought after roads.
