DescriptionNumber 75 Marlborough Road is a most handsome mid terrace two storey over garden level Victorian property, superbly positioned on this popular road in the heart of Dublin 4. The property offers versatile accommodation of approx. 217sqm/2,340sqft, rich in original period detail synonymous with the era including high ceilings, ornate plasterwork, exquisite coving and centre roses and beautiful stained glass windows. Sympathetically upgraded by the current owners, emphasis was placed on preserving the integrity of the Victorian features whilst allowing light to penetrate through on all levels, which has been achieved throughout.
Enjoying elegantly generous proportions, a short flight up original granite steps leads to the most gracious hall which displays fine plasterwork, ornate centre rose and coving. Off the hall, there are two most exquisite interconnecting reception rooms, rich in period detail boasting high ceilings, coving, matching fireplaces and mantle and large sash windows, an ideal space for entertaining.
Downstairs, the real heart of the home, the open plan kitchen dining room is centred around a warm and inviting stove cooker and hearth. Double doors from the kitchen leads to the west facing rear garden, laid out in paving and patio with well stocked planting beds and mature herbaceous borders, making it the ideal space for al fresco dining in the summer sun. At the front, there is a double bedroom off the wide hall. A practical shower room completes the accommodation at garden level.
Upstairs, the large master bedroom is further enhanced by an ensuite. Two further double bedrooms, an office and family bathroom complete the picture with a wonderful quality of natural light flowing throughout the house.
The gardens both front and rear are a real feature, the rear garden enjoys a westerly orientation whilst the front garden is laid out in landscaped planting beds and gravel, set behind the original wrought iron railings. Valuable off -street car parking can accommodate up to 2 cars in the front driveway.
No. 75 is superbly positioned only a moment's stroll of both Donnybrook and Ranelagh villages and Herbert Park's extensive amenities, all the while being within comfortable walking distance of St. Stephen's Green. A five minute walk to the Luas at Beechwood offers ease of access to the city centre, Sandyford and beyond. For those with a family, the area boasts some of South Dublin's junior and secondary schools including Muckross Park, St Marys National School, Scoil Bhride, Sandford Park, Gonzaga College and Alexandra College to name but a few.
