'A magnificent home of true distinction'
60 Leinster Road is a handsome two-storey over garden level Victorian residence (c.1860), which is rich in exquisite period detail and offers versatile accommodation of c.3000sq.ft. comprising 3/4 gracious reception rooms and 5/6 generous double bedrooms, served by 3 bathrooms. Further enhanced by its original, large rear garden (c.110ft. long) with pedestrian and vehicular access onto Grosvenor Lane, offering obvious mews potential (lapsed planning currently) in addition to valuable off-street parking to the front for several cars.
Sympathetically restored and renovated by the current owners, who have been in residence for 30 years, it is hugely evident that their focus was on preserving the integrity and craftsmanship synonymous with the Victorian era. Ornate plasterwork, impressive architraving, handsome fireplaces, wideplank timber flooring, tall sash windows with working shutters etc. all co-exist harmoniously in rooms of gracious and generous proportions. Décor throughout is on-trend with a 'French-country' influence also present, all adding to the warmth, charm and character that greets one upon arrival and inspection.
Standing proud on Leinster Road, No.60 overlooks the Grosvenor Park development, once home to the residence of Lord Longford. Well set back from the road and enjoying a great degree of privacy, the location of this property is superb being within close proximity to Rathmines village, Ranelagh, Rathgar, Terenure and Harold's Cross with the city centre only 2.5km away. All social and essential amenities are on your doorstep to include excellent local junior and senior schools as well as a variety of coffee houses, eateries and shopping facilities.
