DescriptionSherry FitzGerald are delighted to bring to the market this absolutely stunning four bedroom with attic room period red brick residence, situated on this much sought after road in Dublin 6W. Number 8 is an imposing home of immense style and elegance. Beautifully proportioned, it has been well maintained and upgraded by the current owners, who have spared no expense in turning it into a light filled 21st century family home which extends to an impressive 144 sq. m. (1,550 sq. ft.) plus an additional 19 sq.m. (204 sq. ft.) in the attic room and en-suite.
The accommodation briefly provides an elegant entrance hall with stained glass hall door, leading on to the living and dining rooms. Both the living and dining rooms are interconnected through original wooden double doors and feature original period fireplaces, high ceilings, and ornate detailing such as ceiling coving with centre rose and picture rails. The large box bay window is a feature of the living room and the dining room benefits from the added conservatory that overlooks the sunny rear garden, allowing natural light to flow through both rooms. A stylish bright and modern kitchen cum dining room at lower ground floor level is at the heart of the home with ample storage space. The guest wc completes the accommodation on this level.
Upstairs on the first-floor return there is a family bathroom and bright double bedroom. On the first floor, there are three bright and spacious bedrooms with wonderful original features throughout. The principal bedroom benefits from an ensuite with a second spacious double bedroom at this level also. The attic space has been cleverly re-designed and is currently in use as a bedroom with shower ensuite. This space gives the perfect opportunity to create the perfect home office.
To the front lies a traditional paved garden set behind railings. The rear garden is low maintenance and beautifully laid out in paving with raised flower beds, the ideal space for summer entertaining. The rear garden is further enhanced by multi use storage shed and laneway access.
The location is first class, situated between the villages of Rathgar, Harold's Cross and Terenure with every amenity on your doorstep and within 2 miles of St Stephen's Green. An excellent range of well-established schools are all close by including Rathgar Junior, The High School, Alexandra college, Terenure College and St. Mary's College. The renaissance of Rathgar, Harold's Cross and Terenure provides a choice of trendy restaurants and local shopping, while sport clubs nearby include Brookfield Tennis Club and Leinster Cricket Club.
In summary, this is a wonderful family home oozing warmth, space and style.
