DescriptionNo 4 Estate Cottages is a very unique Victorian mid-terrace residence, situated in a small, quiet cul de sac off Shelbourne Road in the heart of Ballsbridge.
This protected structure was comprehensively and sensitively refurbished and extended in 2006 using cut granite and salvaged period brick. The finish is a calm mix of period and modern detail with a bright, open plan design extending to approx. 110 sqm of living space.
Off the entrance hallway, there is a bedroom/reception with original shutter-framed timber sash windows. Opposite, there is a larger bedroom with similar period features and an en-suite bathroom. Further on, the hall opens into the modern wing of the house revealing a smartly appointed kitchen featuring integrated Siemens and Neff appliances. Opposite is a dining area overlooking a stunning secluded courtyard garden beyond large french doors - this space is paved in limestone and framed by lush mature planting of acer, bamboo and clematis that climbs a beautiful old granite wall. There is a small plant room off this.
Beyond the dining and kitchen area is the main living area with a double height ceiling with velux lights and a feature floor to ceiling window. From here you can access a bright mezzanine office/studio. There is also a utility and guest cloakroom in a hallway off the main living area.
A stairwell takes you upstairs to the master bedroom and the main bathroom across the landing. Both spaces open, through large zinc dormers to a further 20 sqm of roof terrace with views across the rooftops of Ballsbridge to the River Dodder.
The house benefits from rear pedestrian access via a short tree-lined lane and a wood shed. The parking is on-street (permits available for two cars) but there is a shared vehicular lane for occasional visitor parking.
A location second to none - in one of Dublin 4’s most exclusive residential areas - Shelbourne Road offers an endless choice of restaurants, bars, coffee shops as well as the new Avoca Food Market. A short walk from Baggot Street, Sandymount and Donnybrook, the area offers an array of amenities that include the RDS, the Intercontinental Hotel, the Aviva stadium and the expanses of the magnificent Herbert Park. The area is served by a range of public transport services including the QBC and the DART station at Lansdowne Road.
Many of the city's most reputable schools such as St Michaels College, The Teresians, Muckross Park, Gonzaga College, St Conleth's and Alexandra college are within close proximity. The campus of both UCD and Trinity College are within easy access, as are excellent recreational facilities to include golf, tennis, rugby and all major cultural facilities of the capital.
