Description22 Louvain is a superb detached family home, situated on a magnificent plot of approx. 0.2 acre, in an idyllic, leafy location in the heart of Clonskeagh.
This property boasts large, mature, secluded gardens to the front and rear with excellent potential to substantially extend (subject to planning permission). Although requiring some modernisation, the property is oozing with potential to transform it into a wonderful family home. It has ample off-street parking to the front of the property.
On entering the house, there is an immediate sense of space, versatility and light. The extensive family accommodation makes excellent use of the well-proportioned reception rooms, ideal for entertaining as well as for everyday living, and is well balanced with bedroom accommodation.
In detail, this fine home extends to over 1,780sqft/165sqm (approx.) of spacious living accommodation, and includes a large entrance hall, generous living /dining room, kitchen, downstairs bedroom/study room and guest cloakroom/WC. The second floor has two generously proportioned double bedrooms, both including extensive eaves storage. A family shower room completes the upstairs accommodation.
The property includes a separate, self-contained unit of 157sq ft/ 14.6sqm. This is accessible from the rear garden and includes a shower/WC room that could be used as home office or au pair/guest accommodation. It also gives the discerning purchaser a fantastic opportunity to incorporate it within the house, due to its convenient location opening on to the patio and the back doors of the main property.
The exceptional rear garden is sunny and secluded and is approx. 75ft long including a large patio area and separate utility/boiler room. It's crowned by a magnificent horse chestnut tree and other mature planting at its external boundary. The sunny front garden also benefits from careful planting with a lavender border, flowering cherry tree and flourishing mixed hedging facing the road.
