A truly exceptional 5 bedroom detached double fronted Victorian property built c.1890 and presented in excellent condition throughout. This outstanding home has been renovated and upgraded to exacting standards and it is evident that no stone has been left unturned in what was an exceptional restoration. Ellesmere is superbly positioned between Rathgar and Dartry on one of Dublin s premier roads, within 2.5 miles of St. Stephen s Green and within walking distance of two Luas stops at Cowper and Milltown.
Well set back from the road with invaluable off street car parking for several cars, the property enjoys elegant and well-proportioned accommodation, coupled with exquisite period detail synonymous with its era to include; fireplaces, high ceilings, detailed cornices and gracious reception rooms. There are also several unique period features to this property such as the superb full height stained glass south facing sash window - which floods the house with natural light.
At hall level there are three superb reception rooms and a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room which enjoys a fabulous view out to private south facing garden. The basement level has been cleverly reconfigured to comprise a utility area, storage room and guest wc. At first floor level are 5 bedrooms (3 ensuite) while a family bathroom and seperate wc complete the picture. The landscaped south facing rear garden is a joy to behold. Laid mainly in lawn and benefitting from a large patio area, this garden is bordered by mature shrubbery and beds, whilst offering tremendous privacy and enjoying sunlight from dawn till dusk.
The property enjoys an almost unparalleled sense of convenience close to all possible amenities, with Luas stops within easy walking distance affording swift access to Dundrum, St Stephen s Green and Sandyford. Rathgar and Ranelagh villages provide a wide choice of restaurants and shopping facilities while some of Dublin s finest junior and senior schools are on your doorstep. Sports clubs nearby include Milltown and Castle Golf Clubs, Brookfield and Rathgar Tennis Clubs, Dartry Health & Fitness Club and David Lloyd Riverview - not to mention the close proximity to Palmerstown Park and Dodder Park.
