A truly special detached 3 storey red brick Edwardian Pickering built family home built c. 1907, of great charm and character extending to 2648sq. ft./246 sq.m. approx. enjoying an enviable position on this much sought after residential road tucked away off Park Drive, right beside the Luas stop at Cowper.

Lived in and lovingly maintained by the same family since 1956, this is a terrific welcoming home, great for entertaining and has hosted many a party and special family event! A really delightful spacious and versatile interior is laid out over 3 floors, offering a perfect balance of reception rooms and generous bedroom accommodation.
Elegant rooms are rich in period detail with high ceilings, fine period fireplaces, attractive cornicing, panelled doors and large sash windows to name a few. The drawing room, dining room and study are all located at garden level, with a warm and inviting kitchen with a trusted old Aga at the heart of the house.

A family bathroom, shower room and utility room complete the picture.
