DescriptionThis an elegant light filled, energy efficient Edwardian family home on private south facing gardens. Dating from 1907 and extending to 241 sq m./2594 sq ft. it enjoys an enviable position on this much-loved road, a quiet cul de sac located just off Dartry Road and close to Palmerston Park and within walking distance of Luas stops at Milltown and Cowper.
The home has been beautifully renovated, restored, and extended with a superb modern kitchen family room extension at the heart of the house. Double height glazing, fills the area with light, linking the home to the south facing gardens which enjoy exceptional seclusion enjoying sun from dawn till dusk. The interior is delightful, full of charm and character with rooms of elegant proportions. The main double reception rooms are interconnecting with wonderful period detail, including unique plasterwork ceilings, fine mantelpieces and large bay windows in both rooms perfect for entertaining yet really cosy with a perfect balance of living space and exceptionally generous bedroom and bathroom accommodation above. Solar panels and a modern solid fuel wood pellet heat system are a bonus.
The gardens are a major asset, the rear gardens are south facing set out in curved lawns with wide beds well stocked with herbaceous planting and sheltered by mature trees. Double entrance gates provide access to rear garden, with a versatile large garden store. Planning permission had been obtained for off street parking to the front but this has expired.
The property is just 2 miles approx. from St. Stephen's Green, in a location second to none with Rathmines, Rathgar, Ranelagh on its doorstep, and within a stroll of Dodder Park, of local shopping at Upper Rathmines Road and Dunville Avenue. Some of Dublin's best schools and colleges are nearby including Sandford National, Sandford Park, High School, Muckross College, Alexandra College, Gonzaga College, Kildare Place, with UCD and Trinity within easy reach. The Luas stops at Milltown and Cowper are within a gentle stroll.
This a wonderful, warm and inviting family home of immense charm and character with every conceivable amenity on its doorstep.
