“EXQUISITE” aptly describes this handsome Victorian Villa style residence, which has recently been extended to exacting standards under the watchful eye of its current owners. Enjoying a wonderful sense of seclusion both inside and out, Henley Cottage (built circa 1860’s) is a truly unique property, retaining many of its Victorian features coupled with a pared-back classic contemporary interior resulting in an ultra-comfortable, light filled home of great character. Unconventional in layout and full of surprises, this exceptional property offers potential buyers a home in truly “Turn Key” condition. High specification materials, exemplary craftsmanship, bespoke fit-out and more than a touch of imagination and creativity are the key elements of this successful transformation. The accommodation comprises; hall, reception hall, living room, dining room, garden room, kitchen/breakfast room, guest wc, laundry, four bedrooms – two of which are at ground floor level – one with adjoining wc and one with en-suite and a family bathroom on the first floor. There is also a fully insulated, separate home office/gym in the front courtyard. The location needs little introduction, with an enviable range of facilities at hand; excellent local shops, within minutes of Dundrum Town Centre, Rathgar and Terenure. New by-pass roads make the M50 highly accessible while the LUAS makes light work of the short commute to the city centre and beyond. The Castle and Milltown golf clubs are nearby as well as a selection of parks to include Bushy, Dartry and Marlay Park.
