Abbotsford is a stunning detached villa style Victorian family home in the heart of Dublin 6. Upgraded and remodelled c.2007 and extending to 395sq.m/ 4,252sq.ft approx. this is without doubt one of the most beautifully restored and presented period homes in the area. Elegant granite steps lead to the original hall door with leaded stained-glass detail. On entering the impressive hall, one can immediately see where immaculately restored period features meet contemporary luxurious style. To the left off the hallway are two generously proportioned reception rooms which are wonderful for entertaining. The elegant bay-windowed dining room is to the front of the house and interconnects with the light-filled drawing room, both with wonderful high ceilings, marble mantelpieces, elegant wall panelling and high skirting boards synonymous of the Victorian era. On the other side of the hall is another stylish reception room to use as you will and then one enters the stunning open plan kitchen & dining area that enjoys a great view of the rear garden. This large room with its double height atrium style extension fills the house with light and provides a real wow factor. A guest wc and cloakroom complete the accommodation at this level. An elegant staircase takes you down to the garden level where there are 5 bedrooms including a large bay windowed main suite with a spacious dressing room and stylish ensuite bathroom. Of the other four bedrooms, two are ensuite and two share a large Jack & Jill shower room. A spacious games room to the back of the house could be used for a multitude of purposes. A utility room with a door leading to the front of the house, and a guest wc complete the accommodation downstairs. The house is further complimented by a sunny private southwest facing garden with a large patio and screened bbq area. Laid out mainly in lawn the garden is bordered by mature shrubbery, trees and wide beds, enjoying sunlight and great privacy from morning til night. To the front the walled garden is enhanced with mature trees to provide privacy and there is parking for 2/3 cars behind gates. Superbly positioned within close proximity of an extensive choice of amenities including excellent shopping, educational and recreational facilities at Rathgar, Rathmines, Ranelagh and Terenure villages. Some of Dublin s best primary and secondary schools are within easy reach and the city centre is approximately 2.5 miles from the property. Orwell Road is well serviced by direct bus routes and is within walking distance to the Luas. Close by there is a wide choice sports clubs to include Rathgar Tennis Club, Milltown Golf Club, David Lloyd Riverview, Dartry Fitness and Brookfield Tennis Club, with the Dodder linear park just down the road.
