Colliers is excited to present Fahanmura, a wonderful example of Art Moderne architecture, a distinctive style which began in the early part of the 20th Century with inspiration taken from the Art Deco and Bauhaus movements, that still to this day commands an awe and appreciation for this revered style that echoes the roaring twenties. Built in 1937 by Moore Ffrench Parkhill, this striking property is truly a magnificent piece of architectural history presenting a simply stunning 4 bay , 2 storey, 5 bed family residence of approximately 382 sq.m. / 4,112 sq.ft. featuring multiple roof terraces double garage and positioned on a most generous plot of approximately half an acre of private, mature well stocked gardens in Foxrock Dublin 18. Fahanmura exudes with an elegance charm of its era both inside and out and represents an important example of the mid-20th century domestic built heritage in south County Dublin and has therefore been included on the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage of Ireland and thus receives Section 482 tax relief on all repair, maintenance, or restoration on the house & gardens. The property has been well maintained over the years while in the same family for 3 generations and benefits from a bright and spacious accommodation of good proportions throughout with many original features remaining intact crowned by classic bold geometric lines and a symmetrical facade with strong vertical emphasis. On entering the property through the wainscoted oak doors , you're greeted by an elegant entrance lobby with sweeping staircase and a signature curved window that floods the entire space with natural light and sets the tone for what follows. To the left of the entrance lobby is a generous study with original Art deco ceramic fireplace and matching bookcases on either side. A bright passage hall leads to a spacious dual aspect living room with feature curved windows , feature fireplace with recessed storage presses at either side and a wonderful tri aspect sunroom with direct garden access. To the right of the entrance lobby double doors open into the formal dining room, complete with original curved fireplace and access to the kitchen with original AGA stove. Off the kitchen lies a cold larder, utility room with twin Belfast sink and gives access to an inner hall which leads to original maid's quarters, garage and out to the gardens. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms of which three access roof terraces and a large family bathroom completes the accommodation. Outside, the gardens are mature and manageable and offer ultimate alfresco family fun and peace and tranquillity with many seated areas around the lawns and even a cherry blossom swing to enjoy the moving sun. The property benefits from having full planning permission to refurbish, improve and extend offering the discerning purchaser a unique opportunity with plenty of scope to remodel and reconfigure the property to suit their own needs and create a one of a kind family home.
