Built in the 1930's in the fashionable Art Deco style, this impressive, detached residence (209sq.m/2249sq.ft.) occupies a substantial site on one of south Dublin's most sought-after roads. Approached by a long driveway, Dovedale is well set back from the road and enjoys wonderful privacy with mature and beautifully maintained gardens to the front and rear. The house itself, is light and airy and is characterised by modern clean lines and minimalist finishes, synonymous with the Art Deco era. An entrance porch with guest wc, opens to an inviting entrance hall. To the right is a large double reception room with open fireplace and glass doors to a sun room which opens to a large terrace. Bedroom four/ family room also enjoys direct access to the garden and features a gas stove. The large, light-filled kitchen/dining room is fitted with bespoke Maple cabinets with smart granite work tops and a mint green tiled splash back. A large garage which doubles as a games room and a convenient utility room complete the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs there are three generous double bedrooms (main bedroom benefitting from a stylish ensuite bathroom) together with a large family bathroom. While the existing home offers an abundance of charm and character, crucially the property also benefits from full planning permission (Ref: D18A/1048) to demolish the existing house and replace with a visually stunning three storey house (511sqm gross) of cutting edge contemporary design. This magnificent house of bespoke architectural design features a third floor master suite with access to a large balcony offering stunning views of the Dublin mountains and towards Dublin Bay. The planning permission also includes raising the front wall to achieve absolute privacy and seclusion as well as a garden room to the rear ideal as an office, Au pair accommodation or Den.
