DescriptionThe sale of 34 Morehampton Road offers the decerning buyer an excellent opportunity to acquire a wonderfully elegant Victorian residence on one of Dublin's most sought after and convenient locations.
Situated well set back from Morehampton Road between Herbert Park and Wellington Place this wonderful home which (of 222sq m/2,400sq ft approx.), has been in the same family ownership since 1961 provides extremely elegant, light filled and flexible accommodation. As it is currently laid out the upper two floors provide 2 magnificent interconnection reception rooms and kitchen at the hall floor level with 3 very fine bedroom, showeroom and ensuite w.c. upstairs.
The garden level which was formally used as a thriving creche is currently laid out as a very spacious self-contained apartment but could with ease be re-incorporated back into the main house.
The property's notable features include:
- Unusually large front garden providing very generous off street parking
- 100' long back garden incorporating a timber Pagoda, large garden shed and planted throughout with a wonderful selection of wild flowers and specimen plants which create a riot of colour throughout much of the year.
- Internally the elegant hall and reception rooms retain their lovely period features such as the ornate ceiling cornicing and centre roses. The pillared marbled mantlepieces in the principle reception room are most impressive with the diningroom mantlepiece reportedly coming from Trinity College.
Situated towards the Donnybrook end of this handsome terrace on Morehampton Road the property benefits from one of Dublin's most convenient locations with a vast choice of amenities within easy walking distance.
Just some of these amenities include the excellent range of speciality shops, cafes, pubs and hotels in Donnybrook as well as the 32 acres of recreational gardens, tennis courts, playfields & bowling greens in Herbert Park. Our principle Georgian squares including St Stephen Green, Fitzwilliam Square and Merrion Square also within a pleasant stroll.
The area is also well catered for by numerous sports clubs such as Fitzwilliam L.T.C., Donnybrook L.T.C., Riverview, the AVIVA Rugby and Football National stadium and Leinster Rugby headquarters at the R.D.S. Many of the city's premier schools such as Muckross Park, Gonzaga College, St Conleths and Sandford Park are also close by.
