DescriptionHunters Estate Agent are proud to bring to the market this substantial red brick Edwardian four bedroom semi-detached family home. Extending to 145sq.m / 1,561sq.ft, No. 26 Frankfort Park has an enviable setting, situated in the quietest part of the sought after cul de sac that is Frankfort Park. This fine late Edwardian family home was built in 1934 when the surrounding area was just fields and the middle classes escaped the run down city centre for the cleaner and healthier air of the suburbs. It retains many attractive period features and throughout, the property benefits from generous proportions and there is a wonderful quality of light, due in large part to its ideal south westerly aspect. The property has been in the same family for over 60 years, which is a true testament of its quality and location. If you are looking for ‘the good life’ then look no further than this wonderful home, based in the garden suburbs of 1930’s Britain.
Upon entering the property, one is welcomed by a generous hall leading to the principle rooms of the house with a feature staircase rising to the first floor. To the left, the large interconnecting Dining Room and Living Room benefit from impressive fire surrounds and high ceilings and retain the original sliding doors. A Sun Room is accessed from the Living Room and leads out to the rear garden. To the right, a Breakfast Room leads to the Kitchen, which looks out on to the garden and has a pantry area under the stairs. A door from the Kitchen leads to the Utility Room, which contains the boiler and a w.c. To the front, there is a large Store accessed via a garage door. On your way upstairs, you come to a cloakroom area with feature stained glass window and to the right a guest shower room. The first floor consists of two large double bedrooms, two single bedrooms, a family bathroom and a w.c. The Master Bedroom in particular boasts lovely views out over Dundrum to the steeple of Taney Church from its large bay window.
Outside to the rear, a long private and mature garden is laid out in a pleasant combination of sun terrace, lawn and mature planted beds. At the end of the garden is a vegetable plot ready for a keen green-fingered enthusiast to grow an abundance of organic vegetables for the dinner table, and there is a wonderful old apple tree, planted when the house was built, which provides wonderfully flavorsome apples in season. There is access to the front via the Utility Room or Store. The front garden is railed and walled with cast iron gates and landscaped to provide parking for two cars.
Frankfort Park is within a short walk of Dundrum Town Centre and close to Milltown, Ranelagh, UCD and the City Centre. Excellent transport is provided via the LUAS Green line at Dundrum. This charming family home offers quick and convenient access to all the amenities offered by Dundrum Village including shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and theatre. Some of Dublin’s premier schools are nearby and include Taney National School, Wesley College, Alexandra College, The High School, St. Tiernan’s and Mount Anville.
