6 Kenilworth Square North is a truly wonderful two-storey over garden level end-of-terrace Victorian home. Built c. 1857, this very impressive property is ideally positioned on one of the finest and highly regarded residential Victorian squares in Dublin 6. Situated directly overlooking the most picturesque Kenilworth Square, it also enjoys glorious views of the Dublin Mountains in the distance. This outstanding and light-filled property comes to the market having been carefully extended to 2971 sq. ft. approx., creating extremely versatile accommodation of 3 fine reception rooms and 6 bedrooms (or 5 + home office or gym), benefitting from a pedestrian side entrance access and off-street parking for 3 vehicles. No 6 is a beautifully presented, tasteful home in wonderful condition.
Beyond the handsome façade of this fine home lies an equally inviting interior of immense character, which retains the charm associated with houses of the Victorian era with all the conveniences and comforts of the new. A wealth of period detail prevails throughout this attractive home to include beautiful period marble fireplaces, high ceilings with original ornate plasterwork, original floorboards overlaid with high specification engineered oak floorboards and original sash windows with working shutters. A flight of impressive granite steps leads to a welcoming entrance hall with two equally spacious interconnecting reception rooms and a double bedroom on the return. A less formal entrance lobby at the garden level, with guest WC off the lobby, provides access to the heart of this home; the family room, which opens into the warm kitchen and bright dining/sunroom extension. A smart utility room and home gym (bedroom 6/home office) are located off the lower hall. In the upper floors of the house there are 4 further bedrooms (main ensuite), an excellent large family bathroom with separate shower and an additional shower room.
To the front of the property is a beautifully mature, granite walled garden. Tumbled Dalkey granite setts (cobble stones) and selected stone driveway provide invaluable off-street parking for 3 cars, whilst a gated side pedestrian passageway provides secure, useful storage space and access to the rear garden. The landscaped private rear garden (10.1m x 9.1m approx.) is bordered by granite walls and close boarding timber fencing, with pleached trees at the rear providing a green wall of privacy and seclusion. A large patio area with inlaid lighting, BBQ area with access to home gym (bedroom 6/home office), fern tree and shrubs, a maintenance free high-quality lawn, mature borders and a westerly sun trap seating area are all part of the landscaped designed rear garden. This is a delightfully private garden, ideal for enjoying al fresco dining and entertaining family and guests.
