Description28 Malahide Road is a delightful period residence-built c.1847 and completely renovated and extended in 2000. Superbly located with all local amenities on your doorstep and just 150 metres from the Clontarf Road and Clontarf DART station, this property has a low maintenance front garden with off street parking and a secluded south facing rear garden laid in lawn with mature shrubs. There is pedestrian access to this rear garden for bins, bikes etc.
With the added benefit of a study room this spacious and light filled home offers a modern feel while maintaining the original charm from a bygone era including high ceilings, full height sash windows, marble fireplace, ceiling rose and picture rails inside and granite entrance steps and original cast iron railings outside.
This substantial and beautifully appointed property boasts a large and inviting entrance hall with high ceilings and a fan light above the door. Off the hall to the front of the house is a period reception room that offers high ceilings, full height sash windows, original ceiling rose and an original marble fireplace. Also, on this level are two large bedrooms and a toilet/ shower room. A staircase descends to the ground floor to a downstairs hall where a clever layout and design optimises both light and living space for the new owner of this beautiful home. Off this hall is a beautifully presented kitchen cum dining room with modern floor to eye level units. The open plan flow of this kitchen cum dining room extends out into a bright sunroom from where the sunny rear south facing garden is accessed through French Doors. Off the sunroom is a study room which enjoys views over the rear garden and this study could be used as a fourth bedroom if one desired. An exceptionally large third bedroom and family bathroom with a three-piece suite complete the ground floor of this striking period property.
The beauty of this home is that although it has been modernised in recent times it has been done so in such a way that is appreciative of the original design of this home and therefore incorporates many of the original period style features so that from entering through the front door you are transported back to a bygone era.
The location of this property is second to none with an abundance of local amenities and services on the doorstep including schools, shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Westwood Sports & Leisure Club with indoor tennis courts and an Olympic size swimming pool, Fairview park and Crescent Park are all within 100 metres from the front door. Clontarf promenade, Dublin City Centre, IFSC and East Point Business Park are all within easy walking distance.
