DescriptionA classical detached home 305 sq m /3,283 sq ft (approx.) on 0.3 acre (approx.) of exceptional, private landscaped grounds, superbly positioned in the heart of what is recognised as one of Dublin's most prestigious residential areas.
Built c. 1933 Glenart has enormous charm and great character. Lived in for 51 years by the current owners, this truly beautiful family home which is located on Richmond Avenue South beside Temple Road and Merton Road, is tucked away in the heart of the best and most sought after area of Dublin 6. The property's appeal is further enhanced by its secluded setting surrounded by delightful and mature sun-drenched gardens.
This is a perfect home for easy family living laid out mainly over two levels. The principal reception rooms, family rooms and kitchen at hall level enjoy elegant proportions, fine original period detail and great natural light. There is a perfect balance of bedrooms and living rooms. The gardens, which extend to 0.3 acre (approx.) are exceptionally secluded, planted in classical style with mature specimen trees and a profusion of spring and summer flowering bulbs, balanced by large lawns areas and a generous parking area to the front. Glenart enjoys a superbly convenient location, enviably positioned opposite the Luas stop at Milltown, just 2.5 approx. miles from St Stephens Green with Ranelagh, Dartry and Rathmines on the doorstep. The property is within walking distance of the extensive local amenities of UCD and some of Dublin's best senior and junior schools including Alexandra College, Gonzaga College, St. Mary's College, Muckross Park, Kildare Place, Sandford National and Sandford Park. Sports clubs include David Lloyd River View, Milltown Golf Club, while Brookfield and Fitzwilliam tennis clubs are just minutes away. Glenart on 0.3 acre is undoubtedly a special and immensely stylish home with possible development potential and potential to extend, both subject to planning permission.
