DescriptionThis imaginatively designed and elegantly proportioned end of terrace residence is the perfect choice for those seeking a very impressive home, discretely tucked away behind security gates, on what is widely regarded as one of Dublin's premier residential roads.
In addition to the elegant, light-filled accommodation, the property provides generous off-street parking to the front and a lovely sunny private westerly facing back garden, with pedestrian access.
Extending to 234 sq. m./2,517 sq. ft. (approx.), with an additional 30 sq. m./305 sq. ft. (approx.) in the converted attic, the property, which has been extended at Hall Floor level provides very generous and flexible reception accommodation. Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms (master with shower room and dressing room ensuite), bathroom and laundry, as well as a lovely bright attic with shower room off.
Situated at the end of a terrace of four houses, which were extensively refurbished with great imagination and flair back in the 1990's, No. 80 enjoys a lovely tranquil setting discretely tucked away behind imposing security gates close to Ailesbury Road's intersection with Shrewsbury Road.
Ailesbury Road's undoubted popularity is not surprising having regard to its exceptional convenience with a host of the city's premier amenities within easy reach. Just some of these amenities include the excellent cafes, restaurants, boutiques and speciality shops in Ballsbridge and Donnybrook. Also close by are many of the city's principle recreational amenities and sports grounds, such as Herbert Park, the Aviva National Rugby & Football Stadium, The RDS home to the Dublin International Horse Show and Leinster Rugby, David Lloyd Riverview Sports Club and Fitzwilliam Tennis Club, to name just a few. An excellent choice of schools are also within walking distance, such as St. Michael's College, The Teresians, Muckross Park, Gonzaga College etc. UCD Belfield and Trinity College are also very accessible.
