Description

Belmont is a most attractive, gable fronted Edwardian residence standing proud on an exceptionally generous site of approximately 0.46 hectare / 1.14 acres of private, mature gardens. Belmont was built circa 1908 in keeping with the classic Edwardian style that is so typical of this road and favoured amongst buyers. The architectural design of this era, to include detail from the Arts and Crafts era, is instantly recognisable to include the red brick bay front, sash windows and timber flooring. Belmont has been extended over the years without compromise.   Windows on both gable sides ensure the accommodation affords maximum light.   The current owners have sensitively reconfigured the additional space to provide for formal entertaining on one side of the house and rather cleverly, via a well-appointed conservatory, the accommodation relaxes into a more homely ambience for a more laid back family lifestyle. Limestone steps lead to the hall door. The hall door is located to the side of the entrance porch and opens to the magnificent reception hallway complete with period marble fireplace with slate inset. A sweeping cantilever staircase with delicate spindles and mahogany hand rail adds a note of period drama to this inviting home. To the right is the dining room with dual aspect, period fireplace and bay window to the front. Double doors lead to the drawing room with ornate Adams style period fireplace. This room is well proportioned and particularly bright with windows enjoying westerly light. A single eight panelled door leads to the living room. This room enjoys an ornate marble fireplace with slate inset. Light prevails with windows to the side, two multi-panelled windows and a French door to the conservatory. The Norman Pratt conservatory is pivotal to the flow of the accommodation seamlessly connecting the formal accommodation with the slightly less formal, family living space. The conservatory enjoys a ceramic tiled floor and comes complete with heat sensor windows and door to the garden. The Dalkey Design kitchen, in solid ash, has many bespoke finishing touches and storage solutions to include attractive corner glass display unit. The sink is set in a curved black granite worktop and the centre island enjoys a solid butcher's block. There is a Fisher and Paykel American Fridge, La Cornue Range with induction, gas and electric options.   The kitchen has a travertine floor which runs into the well-appointed bay which provides for an ideal family eating area. This bay enjoys picture windows and the perfect view to admire the garden. A French door from here leads to the garden. The inner hallway also leads to a utility room which has been fitted with units by John Daly and has a door to the side courtyard. The inner hallway also provides access to a generous sized family room with Junckers oak flooring. It has built in storage cupboards and no less than four tall windows which reflect lots of natural light into this cosy room.   The family room leads back to the hall off which there is a guest wc completing the accommodation at ground level. The first floor has two bedrooms to the front of the house. The first is currently being used as a study, the second, with dual aspect enjoys a bay window and window to the side and fitted wardrobes.   There is a third bedroom to the side of the house. There is a family bathroom with power shower, corner bath, wc and wash hand basin set in a vanity unit and underfloor heating. To the side of the bathroom is a laundry room with stainless steel sink unit which also houses the airing cupboard with hot water cylinder and immersion. Across the landing is an exceptionally large bedroom with sash windows to the side and back of the house and is currently being used as a games room. At the back of the house is the main bedroom with a vast range of built in wardrobes and a delightful picture window affording splendid views overlooking the gardens to the back. The en-suite is luxuriously appointed with his and hers wash hand basins, travertine top and splash back all set in a vanity unit. The en-suite enjoys a travertine floor with cosy underfloor heating. The second floor has two large double bedrooms and a storage room, a shower room with whb, wc an airing cupboard with hot water cylinder and immersion. There is also ample under eaves storage. OUTSIDE Belmont sits proud on an exceptionally large site of 1.14 acres. In line with tradition on this road the house is positioned well back from the main road giving it both presence and privacy. It enjoys two exceptionally wide side spaces, one with wrought iron gates which provide access to the garage and the other with particularly wide space provides a luxurious side garden, a complete luxury and so rare in today's homes. The front gravelled driveway provides parking for several cars. The rear garden is a complete delight nurtured and enhanced through many years and is set into three distinct zones. The first has three steps which lead to the raised patio area surrounded by well stocked flower beds providing a verdant oasis and views out over the swimming pool. A row of mature trees separate this part of the garden from the tennis court. The tennis court is naturally sheltered and has a traditional pavilion structure for changing facilities and storage. The third zone of the garden is exceptionally spacious and on entering is like being suddenly immersed deep into the countryside with nothing but mature trees and well kempt hedges as boundaries. A derelict stable stands as a reminder that one day horses grazed here whilst today's children will see it as their own park to kick ball and entertain themselves. This is without doubt a delightful family home combining an amazing garden with spacious accommodation bearing all the hallmarks of the Edwardian homes of this era. LOCATION Exceptionally well located on arguably Foxrock's premier road approximately 12km from St Stephen's Green and only a short distance from the Village itself. This quaint village enjoys a selection of bistros, restaurants and specialist food shops serving this upmarket suburb. For more extensive shopping facilities, Dunnes Stores at Cornelscourt and the Park Retail Centre are close by. Foxrock Golf Club is a short distance away as is the driving range at Leopardstown Golf Club and Carrickmines Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club. An excellent selection of schools are nearby. These include Hollypark Boys and Girls National School, St. Brigid's Boys and Girls National School and many of South County Dublin's Secondary Schools to include Blackrock College, Mount Anville, Loreto Foxrock, Lycée Français d'Irlande as well as the newly opened Nord Anglia International School and St. Andrew's College are just a short commute away. The Quality Bus Corridor on the N11 provides easy access to Dublin City Centre. The M50 interchange which provides quick and easy access to the airport is close by and the LUAS at Carrickmines just a short walk.
