DescriptionA most elegant Thompson built family home extending to 213sqm/2,292sqft. Superbly positioned right in the heart of Dartry, tucked away in this quiet cul de sac just off Dartry Road. The location is both quiet and central with local shops as well as the villages of Rathmines and Rathgar close by. Ranelagh is only 2 stops on the Luas from Milltown, which is only approx. 6 minute walk away.
Lived in for almost 60 years by the same family, both house and gardens have been lovingly maintained and await a new generation to continue the tradition and create a wonderful family home. Rooms of elegant proportions are enhanced by original period features, where superb interconnecting reception rooms provide flow throughout downstairs and out to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast area offers wonderful potential to open up the back of the house. Upstairs, four generous bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the accommodation.
The rear garden is a real bonus; south facing, private and superbly landscaped with a large lawn and large raised deck area, perfect for outdoor entertaining. This large garden coupled with the large garage also provides further scope to extend this, already, generous home.
The front garden is also landscaped and provides off street parking for several cars.
Few locations offer more in terms of convenience with Dartry, Rathgar, Rathmines and Ranelagh on its doorstep.
The renaissance of Ranelagh and Rathmines gives an endless choice of restaurants, cinemas and shopping including the Stella cinema and the Devlin Hotel. It is within easy reach of some of Dublin's best schools including Sandford National, Sandford Park, Alexandra College, Gonzaga College, Kildare Place, Zion National, St. Mary's College and Stratford College. The Luas stop at Milltown is close by, affording swift access to St. Stephen's Green, Dundrum and Sandyford and beyond. Palmerston Park and Dodder River Walk are close by offering wonderful outdoor spaces while sports clubs nearby include Milltown Golf Club, David Lloyd Riverview, Brookfield Tennis Club and LA Fitness.
