Sherry FitzGerald are delighted to bring this imposing home to the market. 'Shirley' was built in the late 1920's and has only had two owners, the family that built it and the current one, who have loved it for many years.
This superb double-fronted home is located on the fringes of Chapelizod Village, ideally positioned between the River Liffey and the Phoenix Park. It offers a high degree of privacy. The stunning grounds extend to approximately half an acre and include expert mature planting: vegetable beds, glass house with mature vine, fruit trees and bushes and much more. The property was built in a time when the garden played an integral part of family living and at one stage had its own tennis court, replaced now by a sweeping lawn.
'Shirley' was designed in the Edwardian style which was fashionable at the time of construction. It offers bright, light-filled accommodation and although requiring some modernisation it offers all the right ingredients to become the home of your dreams.
The elegance of the property can be seen in sash windows, cast-iron fireplaces, a large balcony with ornamental vine and wisteria, panelled doors, wide plank wooden floors throughout and much more.
The property is located on an elevated site with a large driveway leading to a parking area. Steps from the drive offer pedestrian access directly to the hall door.
This is undoubtedly a unique opportunity to acquire one of Chapelizod's significant homes which seldom change ownership.
