DescriptionSequestered behind handsome Leinster Square, an original coach-house was transformed by artist Donagh Carey into a cleverly designed end-of-terrace bespoke mews. Behind the attractive stone façade lies a contemporary family home with wonderful features throughout including vaulted ceilings and the stunning exposed stone wall in the entrance hall, discreetly positioned in the heart of Rathmines while also being neatly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main street.
As you enter into the warm and welcoming hallway it is immediately apparent that this truly is a one-of-a-kind home with the original stone wall of the coach-house greeting you while the clean lines of the white-walls and the modern staircase offer a glimpse of the modern interior throughout. At entrance level you will find 3 well-appointed double bedrooms, all complete with a smoked Canadian oak floor and built in wardrobes, while the main bedroom benefits from a beautifully tiled ensuite shower room. A magnificently decorated family bathroom with 'tobacco-coloured' Ebano limestone tiles completes the accommodation at entrance level.
Upstairs belies a superbly bright, west facing, light filled open plan living space with vaulted ceilings, bi-folding glass doors to the main terrace, and a bi-folding sliding door to the kitchen. The living and dining room is the heart of this home and is effortlessly chic, with a 6-seater dining table neatly positioned to one end of the room over-looking the west-facing terrace - a veritable 'outside room'. The “Arrital - Dee Designed” kitchen is positioned to the rear of the room and while it is open plan, it can be hidden away in the cleverly designed sliding bi-folding wooden doors. There is a second terrace located off the kitchen with a sunny south facing aspect. A smart wc on the landing completes the accommodation on the first floor.
Both the front and side terraces enjoy sunshine throughout the day due to their excellent southerly and westerly aspects, offering wonderful outdoor living accommodation for al fresco dining and entertaining.
Leinster Square is an excellently positioned vibrant residential road tucked away off Lower Rathmines Road in a truly convenient location. The recent renaissance of Rathmines means there is a wide selection of restaurants and specialty local shops are on the doorstop, as well as several of Dublin's best schools, while the city centre is just a short 15 minute walk away.
This beautiful home, rich in period detail, has been lovingly maintained to exceptional levels over the years and boasts a really versatile, flexible and spacious interior with a very welcoming atmosphere in a sought-after location.
