Description8 Ferrard Road is a very fine home of exceptional charm and character built in a pre-war era. With red brick and feature bay windows, benefitting from an extra wide frontage and the added benefit of a garage to side. The secluded westerly wrap around garden stands on approximately 0.1 acre. This fine family home is ideally located in a quiet cul-de-sac close to the heart of both Terenure and Rathgar Villages. In need of modernisation offering tremendous scope and potential for the new owner to renovate, extend and modernise subject to the necessary planning permission.
The accommodation on offer lends itself to the demands of the growing family and offers a blank canvas. Entered through an enclosed porch into a most welcoming entrance hall with guest wc, there are three reception rooms on this level, two interconnecting the drawing room and dining room with feature marble fireplaces and a separate family room / den to the front. The kitchen extends to the rear of the house overlooking the back garden with access to the enclosed side passage and garage.

The rear and side garden are bound to appeal to those seeking a fine family home with spacious gardens, or to those who may wish to develop the potential of the garden and seek planning permission to further extend or develop.
