DescriptionNestled away along the leafy banks of the River Dodder lies this very handsome and utterly charming, semi-detached 'Art Deco' period home. Dating from the 1930's this fine property, having been completely refurbished by its current owner in 2011, retains all of the charm and character of the Art Deco style with many of the features of the period including fireplace, coving, staircase and doors maintained.
Tastefully extended, No 82 offers exceptionally bright, well proportioned accommodation which is immaculately presented throughout. It boasts an idyllic tranquil setting, a rare find in the middle of the city, with views of the picturesque River Dodder flanked by mature trees belonging to the adjacent Dodder Linear Park.
Once over the threshold you are greeted by a well proportioned entrance hall with Art Deco style front door, good storage under the stairs and smoked oak herring bone floors. Into the right is a very fine living room with a box window, smoked oak flooring and fitted shelving either side of an original Art Deco fireplace. Pocket doors lead you through to an inviting kitchen / sitting / dining room. The same oak floors running through to the sitting and dining area. There is a wall of storage and a Benson solid fuel stove. The kitchen has bespoke fitted units and quartz worktops. There is a combe steam oven, a combi oven and Liebherr integrated larder fridge. There is a large island unit with an induction hob and a downdraft extractor, integrated Neff dishwasher and recessed sink with an insinkerator. Adjacent to the kitchen there is a generous utility room with fitted units and quartz worktops. Sliding doors lead out to the patio area of the garden beyond.
Going upstairs the staircase and bannisters are handmade and lead to a spacious landing which again has generous storage. There are three bedrooms, an attic conversion and a beautifully appointed family bathroom. All 3 bedrooms are doubles. The main bedroom has extensive wardrobes and a generous ensuite. The other two bedrooms have built in wardrobes as well, with the front bedroom boasting a large bay window with a gorgeous view of the Dodder. The attic is an excellent size and is currently used as an office/ bedroom.
Outside the rear garden is exceptionally private and has the perfect southerly aspect which extends to c.21.5m/70ft. There are raised planters and patio area. Completing the garden is the storage shed and the added bonus of a large outside office/studio, perfect for those who work from home or for those in need of an extra room. To front there is a large gravelled driveway that has been formally planted and a small courtyard area to the side that is accessed through a circular arch. There is off-street parking for up to 3 cars and a car charging point.
The location is quiet, mature and highly convenient to an abundance of local amenities in the neighbouring villages of Rathgar, Terenure, Rathfarnham and Dundrum Town Centre which also offer a range of excellent schools and transport links.
