DescriptionSeamlessly bringing together all the grace and elegance of bygone days with the very best of modern day living, this incredibly impressive home has been extensively and imaginatively renovated to exacting standards and its idyllic setting, nestled amidst this exclusive terrace peering out over the central green, is equally as striking as the property itself.
As you cross the threshold, a sense of the grandeur of this home becomes immediately evident. The generously appointed entrance hall, complimented by tall ceilings heavily accented with intricate cornicing, set the tone of what to expect. The interconnecting reception rooms are filled with natural light and compliment the moody hued interiors. As you travel down to the less formal everyday accommodation on the ground floor, a stunning mezzanine on the return with glass balustrade gives you a taste of what lies ahead. While the current owners have been sensitive to the property's original character on the upper floors, they have wholeheartedly immersed themselves in all things modern at the garden level. Smartly designed and creating a fantastic heart of the house, this level has its own entrance at the front of the property and offers great flexibility. Polished concrete floors, clean lines, enormous sliding glass doors which open up the back the house to light and views of the garden, and a black hide and sleek, minimalist kitchen with double height void, secrets away the standard clutter, along with a large island, sits beautifully together and a cosy living area opens up to what is currently a play room but was originally created to be a fourth bedroom with en-suite.
Further up the property, a large modern bathroom with feature picture window occupies the entire return. On the first floor there are two generous double bedrooms, the principal of which spans the entire width of the property and enjoys lovely views of the park. Drenched in natural light, the owners have chosen a dark contrasting colour palette, creating a chic yet thoroughly inviting space. Ananbo mural wallpaper adds extra interest to the room and a seating area surrounds the feature marble surround fireplace. At the top of the property there is a further double bedroom and a shower room.
To the rear of the property, there is a garden laid mainly in lawn and bordered with a profusion of plants, shrubs and grasses. There are patios at either end of the garden and there is pedestrian access to the rear.
Situated within a stone's throw of Dun Laoghaire and Glasthule village, every conceivable amenity is on the doorstep, both social and essential, including an excellent choice of shops, bars and restaurants, boutiques, and a weekly farmers' market in People's Park. Premier schools close by include Rathdown School, CBC Monkstown, Loreto Dalkey, and Holy Child Killiney. Further excellent schools are easily accessible along the DART line. Transport facilities in the area are abundant with several bus routes passing through the vicinity along with the DART line, while the Aircoach provides easy access to the Airport and N11 and M50 are easily accessible.
