Description

“Beautiful Bessborough Parade Abode” No. 7 Bessborough Parade is a superbly refurbished three-bed (plus attic), two storey period home of immense character that was built circa 1846. The property measures approx. 136.6 sqm / 1470 sqft including the attic room and 115.8 sqm / 1246 sqft, not including the attic room. It’s only a 5-minute walk to Ranelagh Luas station or to Dublin Bikes at Portobello and 15 minutes’ walk to St. Stephen’s Green. As for the position of this property, it is second to none. Turning onto Bessborough Parade from Mountpleasant Avenue, one enters a striking architectural enclave with a uniquely curved late-Georgian terrace on one side, facing the best of modern Irish architecture from Grafton Architects and De Blacam Meagher, all nestled under the iconic copper dome of Rathmines Church. No 7 Bessborough Parade presents a fantastic opportunity to live within easy walking distance of St Stephen’s Green & the city centre yet enjoy wonderful quietness while the surrounding bustling neighbourhoods seem a light distance away. Close to the business districts of Dublin 2, 4 & 6, it is also within easy reach of the highly desirable Ranelagh and Rathmines villages, each with their own special atmosphere and pace of life, hallmarked by convenience and excellent services. Both host a varied selection of boutiques, shops, cafés and restaurants. With Mount Pleasant Tennis and Leinster Cricket clubs on the doorstep, a huge selection of other leisure facilities including The Swan Swimming Pool & Leisure Centre, the Omniplex and Stella cinema complexes, gyms and parks including Belgrave Square, Ranelagh Gardens, Dartmouth Square and Palmerston Park are all in the immediate vicinity. The adjacent Canal offers wonderful walkways and cycle paths. Accommodation comprises warm inviting entrance hall with original front door and fanlight, under stair storage, two interconnecting reception rooms with feature fireplaces, shuttered sash windows and fitted cabinetry. Separate kitchen/breakfast room with iroko hardwood counters, Neff fridge-freezer, Neff gas hob, Miele dishwasher and a Siemens double electric oven. To the rear of this room lies the plumbed utility room and downstairs WC. Access to the pretty L-shaped garden is from the kitchen. The first-floor return comprises corridor with storage, radiator and ceiling window leading to a light-filled single bedroom with sash window overlooking the garden, family bathroom with feature iroko hardwood sliding door, 1m² rainfall shower and a heated bathroom mirror. A lovely feature of this room is that there is a window with a private view of garden from the bath. It boasts Duravit sanitaryware and Fired Earth tiles. The first floor includes two large double bedrooms. The master bedroom runs the full width of the front of the house with a feature fireplace and two sash windows with shutters. The second double bedroom is to the rear of the house also with a feature fireplace and sash window with shutters. The attic, which was converted in 2011, is accessed by a bespoke iroko hardwood staircase with storage cupboard within. The floorboards are reclaimed wood. The room is used for guest accommodation, storage and study area. There is oodles of storage in the eaves and two conservation Velux windows give tremendous views from the Rathmines church dome across to the Poolbeg towers. To the rear of the house there is a secluded, sun-dappled patio garden with mature planting and a shed. To the front of the house is a neat railed front garden with attractive planting. Parking is on-street for 2 cars. There is also secure, gated rear-lane access leading to Fortescue lane for bicycles and pedestrians. A superb choice of restaurants, shops and most importantly a great choice of junior and senior schools are all within minutes’ walk of the property; Scoil Bhríde, Lios Na nÓg, Ranelagh MDS, Gonzaga, St. Mary’s, Sandford Park, St. Louis and Muckross Park College to name but a few. Ranelagh is a wonderful area to live, with so many things to do and see and is very well serviced by public transport. Number 7 Bessborough Parade is a turnkey property and any prospective purchaser would only have to sit back and enjoy this wonderful home. We look forward to answering any questions you might have.
