Description

Outstanding opportunity to acquire a magnificent detached double fronted Villa-style residence (174sqm/1872sq.ft) on approx. one fifth of an acre in the heart of beautiful Sandycove village. Dating from 1922, No 86 is one of a few detached properties on Albert Road and sits on a site of considerable width with a sweeping drive to the front and extensive gardens to the rear. The elegant front facade is wonderfully balanced with two impressive bay windows which light up the interior of this bright and airy home. On entering this home, you are welcomed by an impressive reception hall of very generous proportions. Off the hall there are 4 large rooms, each retaining much of its original period detail and offer huge flexibility in terms of use with unlimited design potential. Further on, there is an exceptionally bright kitchen/ dining room extension with double doors to large patio. A sizeable bathroom and utility room complete the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs there is a master bedroom, office/ walk in wardrobe and a W.C. Each room is beautifully proportioned and there is a great sense of space and light throughout this superb home. A particular feature of this exceptional property is the extensive rear garden which enjoys a delightfully sunny orientation. It is laid mainly in lawn with large areas of patio and a charming circular path. It is flanked on one side with an old stone wall while the remaining boundary is well defined with attractive fencing. The rear garden offers obvious scope to further extend the property and there is current planning to re-model the existing house. The front garden is wonderfully mature with well established hedging and shrubs. A gated driveway provides off street parking for two cars and to one side there is a wide pedestrian access to the rear garden. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a property of wonderful charm and character in a superb location. Widely regarded as one of the area’s most desirable roads, the property offers residents unparalleled convenience with Dalkey, Sandycove & Glasthule villages and also Dun Laoghaire Pier all within a few minutes' walk away. These villages host a wonderful choice of upmarket shops, bars, restaurants. There are beautiful coastal walks and Sandycove beach and the Forty Foot bathing place are just within a 5-minute walk, as is Teddy’s for ice cream, Sandycove Tennis and Squash Club are also close by. The road is well serviced by public transport, with Dublin Bus, the Aircoach to the airport and the DART mere minutes away. The area also benefits from an excellent selection of primary and secondary schools including Castle Park, Harold National School, Rathdown and Loreto Abbey Dalkey.
