DescriptionA marvellous three bedroomed mid terraced family home located in the highly soughtafter residential location of St Luke's. 3 Hillview Villas built c.1840 and offers all the charm and character of a property expected from this era. Originally called Hillview Cottages this home was built in early Victorian century, its style refers to the Georgian period with its symmetry and proportions. The house appears on the Griffith Valuation 1847/1864 and
was possibly used for the purpose of housing the school teachers of St. Patrick's school which was located to the south where Russet house is currently situated prior to moving to Gardner's Hill. Arranged over two levels and extending to approximately 100 sqm (1,076 sqft) this home offers an ideal location within a 5-minute drive from the City Centre.
This home was fully renovated in 2007 with the installation of new central heating system, new windows, new bathroom and new wood burning stove. The property was re-roofed using original reclaimed slate, rewired and a kitchen extension was built along with alternation to existing upstairs bedrooms with a dormer. All downstairs shutters and doors were dipped and stripped and finished with a natural wax.
A family home, Hillview Villas has the benefit of being within a short stroll from a range of schools to include: the already mentioned St Patrick's as well as St. Luke's co-ed national School, Christian Brothers boys primary and secondary school, Scoil Mhuire girls primary and secondary school, St. Angela's Girls secondary, as well as having Hewitt and Bruce College close by. Ashton co-ed secondary school is also within walking distance.
