DescriptionNumber Fifty Six Dartmouth Square South offers a wonderful opportunity to purchase a beautifully presented, light filled home, of great charm and character which has retained its attractive period features yet enhanced them to incorporate all the conveniences of modern day living. Having been extended and refurbished with great flair and impeccable taste in 2017 by the current owners, the property offers 2,615sq.ft./242sq.m. (approx.) of superbly appointed and elegant accommodation in addition to a versatile self contained unit of 355sq.ft/33sq.m. with access to Dartmouth Lane to the rear of the lovely sunny, south facing back garden.
Laid out over three levels, the gracious accommodation comprises at hall level a large entrance hall with polished walnut parquet flooring opening into two elegant interconnecting reception rooms which offer unique panoramic views of the park given the house's central position on the square . To the rear at this level on the return sits a light filled fourth bedroom and a utility room, with hot press and additional storage. The garden level has been transformed in recent years with a wonderful extension creating a fantastic, light filled open plan living/dining/kitchen area opening out to the rear garden and a family/kids room to the front of the house which can be closed off from the rest of the living space. There is a guest bathroom to the front of the property under the granite steps and ample storage at this level.
At the top of the house are three very generous double bedrooms including the large master bedroom with ensuite shower room and dressing area which runs the breadth of the house and benefits from the bright aspect to the rear of the property. The family bathroom on the first floor return and an accessible attic for storage completes the accommodation.
The glorious interior is perfectly complimented by a stunning south facing rear garden benefitting from rear access to Dartmouth Lane. This sunny haven is laid out in an astro lawn for low maintenance and a large patio which offers the perfect spot for outdoor dining. A self-contained unit (355sqft/33sqm approx.) offers a wonderful opportunity for use as a home office or indeed au pair / guest quarters which includes fitted kitchen, double bedroom/office and a bathroom with shower unit. There is a door from this unit out to the rear laneway. To the front of this fine home is a meticulously maintained railed, landscaped garden with irrigation system, box hedging and pathway leading to the imposing granite steps of this exceptional property.
Situated in what has to be one of Dublin's most popular, convenient and sought after squares, the property enjoys an excellent local community and an almost unrivalled sense of convenience, being within a few minutes stroll of Leeson Street, St Stephens Green and Ranelagh Village along with many of Dublin's principle places of business.
A short stroll from Ranelagh Village, an abundance of amenities are literally on its doorstep including excellent local shops, restaurants and delicatessens, not to mention its convenience to St. Stephen's Green and Dublin city centre which are within 15 minutes' walk and Herbert Park.
