No 26 Grosvenor Place is a distinctive 2 storey over basement period residence, superbly located in the heart of Rathmines with an extensive selection of amenities within short walking distance. This striking 4-bedroom home extends to a deceptive 218sq.m. (2,347sq.ft.) approx. and retains the character and charm synonymous with the Victorian era, both internally and externally.
Built as one of only 4 houses in c.1875 with Dolphin's Barn mellow-aged brick with red-brick decorative features, it is quite distinct from its neighbouring red-brick Victorian and Edwardian properties. It has been in the same ownership since 1977 and has been lovingly restored, maintained and much enjoyed down through the years. Many original features have been retained in excellent condition, including sash windows, window shutters, ornate ceiling cornicing and centre ceiling roses - a testament to the craftmanship of the Victorian era and the ongoing care of the current owners.
The well-proportioned, versatile accommodation briefly comprises at hall floor level a spacious entrance hall, drawing room interconnecting to the family room and large double bedroom. Upstairs, there are two large double bedrooms (main en-suite), single bedroom and family bathroom. The basement level comprises of a bespoke kitchen / breakfast room spanning the entire width of the property, utility room and a living room, which overlooks the garden. A guest w.c. with shower and home office/study through to storage room lead to the rear garden completing the accommodation at this level.
Perfectly positioned on the sunny side of this quiet and popular road the large secluded and landscaped rear garden enjoys a sunny, south-westerly aspect. The garage has direct access to Kenilworth Lane - an established mews laneway - and offers potential for development, subject to relevant planning permission.
Grosvenor Place connects Leinster Road and Grosvenor Road and is conveniently located within a short stroll to all the amenities that Rathmines Town Centre, Rathgar Village and Harold's Cross has to offer, including trendy coffee houses, eateries, bars, supermarkets and the multi-plex cinema. It is a short walking distance to the Rathgar Junior School, St Louis' School and St Mary's College. The regular and frequent Public transport through Rathmines allows easy access to the city centre, north Dublin and Dundrum Shopping Centre with the Luas at Ranelagh also close by.
Overall, this is a wonderful, distinctive family home in a splendid location, with gracious, versatile accommodation arranged over 3 levels, further complemented by a much sought-after large south-westerly rear garden - a rare find in today's market.
