No. 21 Butterfield Drive presents the potential purchaser with a rare opportunity to acquire an elegant detached home, on a very large site, perfectly positioned on one of the most sought after roads in Rathfarnham. This attractive and impressive residence has been in the same family for over 60 years and is awash with both period detail and well proportioned accommodation throughout.

There is also potential to convert the attic, as well as to further extend the existing property should your needs require (subject to the relevant planning permission).

To the front the property is well set back from this tree-lined road, with the provision of off-street parking, garage access and pedestrian side entrances on both sides giving access to the property and the garden. To the rear lies a truly unique space, giving a countryside feel in the heart of Dublin 14.
