DescriptionSherry FitzGerald is delighted to bring to the market “Ivanhoe”, a magnificent detached red brick property that sits proudly on approximately .02 acres of extensively landscaped gardens and enjoys a wonderful position along Spencer villas in the heart of Glenageary close to a host of amenities. Boasting elegantly proportioned rooms which are complimented by an abundance of very fine original features, the property has incredible potential to be transformed into a wonderful family home (subject to p.p.).
Filled with character and charm, Ivanhoe retains many of its period features such as high ceilings, sash windows, ceiling coving to name but a few. The accommodation is simply oozing potential and is presented as a blank canvas ready for someone to put their own stamp on it! The property itself is approached by a seclude front garden with vehicular access and dual pedestrian access and comprises an entrance hall with guest wc, under stair storage and access to a study. To the right of the hall is a living room with feature bay window and to the left is a bedroom with dual aspect and access to an ensuite bathroom. The kitchen lies to the rear of the hall with views and access out to the rear garden. There is also a utility room off the kitchen. On the hall floor landing there is a family bathroom. The first floor has a magnificent drawing room, main bedroom with feature bay window, a further bedroom and a shower room. The attic houses two further rooms with spectacular views as far as Howth.
The secluded gardens wrap around Ivanhoe encasing it in greenery and affording the house beautiful vistas over the ever-changing seasonal gardens. To the front, there is parking with generous dual side access bringing you to the secluded rear garden which has been wonderfully landscaped and captures the serene setting of this lovely home. A generous lawn area is bordered with well stocked flower beds to include mature shrubs, trees and flowers including a wide variety of annuals and perennials. This attractive garden provides privacy, seclusion and colour throughout the year and would be ideal for the garden lover or indeed a growing family. The garden boasts a large storage shed which is wired for electricity (6.61 sq mt x 3.15 sq mt), an outside wc, double gates leading onto a laneway and a number of greenhouses which are dotted around the garden. There is also a roller gate at the rear of the garden which is accessed via a laneway giving vehicular access onto a concrete driveway which leads to a block-built garage (6.34m x 11.16m) with sliding steel door. This area boasts 3 phase electricity, stainless steel sink unit wall presses and office.
Ivanhoe is ideally located within easy reach of picturesque Scotsman's' bay, seafront walks including Dun Laoghaire pier can be a daily occurrence for the discerning purchaser of this lovely home.
