DescriptionApproached via a traditional landscaped front garden enjoying year-round colour, the handsome aesthetic of this Victorian residence commands its own attention. A substantial two-storey over garden level home with 279sq.m./3000sq.ft. of cleverly configured family accommodation, it offers a versatile balance of gracious living and generous bedroom space.
Superbly located on Leinster Road, positioned between Grosvenor Place and Leinster Road West, the imposing properties situated on this stretch are well set back from the road, enjoy large gardens in the main and overlook low-lying villa-style properties on the other side of the road, thereby affording some mountain views on a clear day.
Refurbished in the last decade, No.71 presents in very good order throughout. Retaining many original features to include cornicing, architraving, fireplaces and timber floors, it also benefits from underfloor heating downstairs and a BEAM central vacuum system. The gardens are also a noteworthy feature, with the 70ft. (approx.) rear garden offering mews potential (subject to relevant planning permission) with access to Grosvenor Lane, an established mews laneway.
Rathmines town centre is a few minutes' stroll away and offers all social and essential amenities to include a vast choice of shops, eateries and coffee houses. Swan Leisure, Omniplex Cinema and the Stella Cinema take care of your leisure and entertainment needs. Whilst a host of primary and secondary schools are in the area. Harold's Cross, Portobello, Rathgar and Ranelagh are also all within a few minutes' walk.

Gardens Extensively landscaped in recent years, the gardens to No.71 are a very special feature. The front garden is formal in design, layout and planting with a wonderful mix of shrubs, ferns, flowering plants, mature trees, Buxum balls and tall hedging all complementing the granite and cobblelock paving as you approach the gentle flight of granite steps secured by cast iron railings. The rear garden, connected via an enclosed side passageway, measures an impressive 70ft long (approx.) and showcases a careful mix of traditional and contemporary design. A manicured lawn is bordered by a paved patio and pathway surrounded by well-planted beds with a mix of flowering plants, specimen trees and shrubs. The tall granite wall, which borders the full garden has been screened on one side by fencing adding to the seclusion. A row of hedging has been cleverly planted at the base of the lawn, discreetly screening the parking bay, which comfortably accommodates a number of vehicles. With access to Grosvenor Lane, there is mews potential here subject to relevant planning permission. There is also on-street permit parking to the front on Leinster Road.
