DescriptionVery attractive detached mews house, well positioned on this popular lane in the heart of Ballsbridge.
St Martin is a very attractive detached mews house, well positioned on this popular lane in the heart of Ballsbridge, moments from Baggot Street and the Grand Canal. Set behind tall electronic gates, this stylish home, offers both privacy and excellent outdoor space.
The mews is clad in American Cedar and is tastefully presented throughout. Internally the bright and spacious accommodation extends to approx. 148 sq mt /1600 sq ft. Double doors lead to a welcoming entrance hall, guest WC with built in storage that could be easily reconfigured into a shower room. Off the entrance hall is the large open plan living / dining room which is flooded with natural light from windows and French doors at either end of the house and features an open fireplace. Adjacent is a recently fitted kitchen with granite worktops, a large breakfast bar, utility cupboard and garden access.
Upstairs there are 3 generous bedrooms. The main bedroom to the front of the house benefits from floor to ceiling windows with shutters offering privacy. This spacious room features an abundance of storage, a wash hand basin and shower. There is a large double bedroom to the rear and a single bedroom to the front, both with built in wardrobes as well as a family bathroom. Further accommodation includes a hot press and drop down ladder providing access to sizeable attic space.
Outside the front courtyard is enclosed by stone walls and high timber gates with ample parking for up to 3 cars. Previously St. Martin was the residence of the Bulgarian Embassy and the guard house remains. This is a brick built room with windows and while currently used as a store, has the potential to be a small home office, gym or workshop. To the rear of the property is a surprisingly long south east facing gravelled garden (approx. 50 ft) with mature planting creating a bohemian style oasis. The patio seating area is a lovely evening suntrap.
Given the size of the outdoor space, there is also excellent potential to extend or remodel should one wish to. This superb residence makes an ideal home for anyone looking for an oasis in the heart of Dublin 4.
St Martin is situated in a prime location on Waterloo Lane, hidden away between the highly desirable Georgian roads of Waterloo and Burlington, a stone's throw from Baggot Street, Ballsbridge and within a 15 minute walk from both Grafton Street and Ranelagh. Ballsbridge is home to many of Dublin's top hotels and restaurants including the Dylan Hotel, Rolys, The Herbert Park Hotel, The InterContinental Hotel, L'Ecrivain amongst a choice of options.
There is also a wide variety of recreational facilities in the locality such as Herbert Park, The Aviva Stadium and the RDS showgrounds. There is an excellent selection of primary and secondary schools to choose from nearby as well as UCD and Trinity College. Merrion Square, Sandymount Village, St. Stephen's Green, Grand Canal Dock (Dublin's IT & Legal Hub) and Fitzwilliam Square are also just a short pleasant ramble away. It is also ideally placed to take advantage of excellent transport links such as nearby Port Tunnel, Lansdowne Road DART station, Luas at Charlemont and Aircoach.
