Oakley Manor, 46 Oakley Road was built in 1845 and is one of the oldest parts of the eclectic tapestry that makes up Oakley Road. Oakley Road was formally listed as both Cullenswood Avenue and Dunville Lane at Cullenswood and while the years went by and there were many new additions to the road, a constant was the prominent position held by Oakley Manor.
This fine Victorian home measures approx. 250sqm/2,691sqft of gracious accommodation laid out over three levels boasting many exquisite period features. The interior is delightful, full of charm and character with rooms of elegant proportions. A beautiful spacious hall with ornate cornicing and ceiling rose leads to two elegant interconnecting reception rooms both with wonderful period detail, including unique plasterwork, fine mantelpieces and original sash windows. Upstairs are two extremely generous bedrooms, a third on the return and a further two bedrooms at garden level. The kitchen and breakfast room run across the front of the house enjoying access to a quiet patio area and out to the front garden.
The gardens are a stunning feature of this superb residence. It is rare to find such seclusion and privacy so close to town and the fantastic rear garden measuring approx. 86ft offers wonderful potential to extend (subject to p.p.) It also consists of a block built storage shed which could be easily modified to become a work from home space. The rear garden also benefits from rear pedestrian access to a private laneway. The front garden provides the much coveted off street parking for two cars, a rarity in Ranelagh.
Oakley Road is a quiet residential road, conveniently equidistant to both Ranelagh / Beechwood LUAS Stops and within a short stroll of both Ranelagh and Rathmines villages and only approx. 20 minute walk to St Stephens Green. The recently transformed Swan Shopping Centre and its host of boutique shops is nearby whilst Dunville Avenue provides additional local shopping and neighbourhood eateries. Some of Dublin s finest schools are in the immediate vicinity including Scoil Bhride, Lios Na n g, Gonzaga, Sandford Park, Muckross Park College and the Multi- Denominational school.
The current owners have transformed this property from a house of bedsits to a fantastic family home over the 36 year tenure and now Oakley Manor is just waiting to welcome it s new family.
