DescriptionMerrion View Lodge has been totally refurbished with flair under the supervision of Interior Fit Out Designer, Debi Flynn, combining the old with the new seamlessly creating this charming town residence.
The entrance hallway and front reception rooms bear the hallmarks of a period residence. With wainscoting and traditional Georgian sash windows they create a space that is ideal for relaxation. The hall leads to the large open plan kitchen, dining and living area. From the hall they eye is immediately drawn to the light from the exceptionally well-designed extension to the rear. Light floods in through the Crittal style windows to the side of the extension, a cleverly placed skylight and glazed wall to the rear. The kitchen is designed to blend in with the living area.
A mixture of hand-painted and oak units are off-set by Calacatta Marble counter worktops, which continue from the counter to the wall behind, including a floating, decor inducing shelf, which provides a cool and neutral backdrop. There are some tastefully applied design touches to include the built-in drinks cabinet with hinged pocket doors which line one wall of the kitchen. With mirrored back, glass shelves, oak finish and Calacatta marble counter, and copper handles. The result is aesthetically pleasing and provides work and storage space that is sophisticated and practical in equal measure. The floor of the kitchen is tiled in a large concrete effect tile which blends into wide oak flooring cleverly defining this open-plan living space.
Upstairs there are two luxuriously appointed bedroom suites in addition to third double bedroom. The first suite is positioned to the front of the house with dressing room and bathroom en-suite. The second is positioned to the back of the house with two shower rooms en-suite, a dressing room and a further room currently used as a study which could also make for a nursery. There is a separate shower room at this level also.
Privacy and seclusion is provided by the original granite stone wall. Landscaping includes large cement style tiling and high concrete raised flower beds complemented by ornamental grasses framed by neatly clipped buxus hedging. A wide side passage is tiled with granite tiles. The garden is private and sheltered and flows effortlessly from the family area to provide for the perfect outdoor space for barbeques and outdoor dining.
This stylish pied-a-terre enjoys an enviably convenient location. Located off the Merrion Road, between St Michael's College on Ailesbury Road and the Merrion Centre. It is just a short stroll to the DART at Sydney Parade Avenue and on direct bus routes both into and out of the city. It also enjoys being within walking distance of Donnybrook and Ballsbridge with their wide range of coffee shops, eateries, bistros, convenience stores and speciality food shops.
Merrion View Lodge is an exceptional home combining spacious accommodation and an enviably convenient Dublin 4 address.
