Situated off Highfield Road in the heart of Dublin 6, The Gables is an outstanding detached modern family home of distinctive architectural style, situated on secluded private landscaped gardens of approximately 0.2 acre on a quiet residential road in the heart of Rathgar, one of Dublin’s most sought-after and prestigious near city suburbs. This distinguished and unique home is approached to the front through impressive wrought iron vehicular entrance gates flanked by very attractive high granite walls which allude to the privacy and seclusion beyond. Despite the striking and attractive façade, it is not possible to appreciate the extraordinarily generous and elegant accommodation within from an exterior glance. Extending to approximately 489sqm (5,263sqft) with the added benefit of a Mews / Garage to rear offering approximately 100sqm (1,076sqft) of additional space, The Gables is one of the finest detached family homes to come to the market in Dublin 6 in recent years. Internally, the expansive family accommodation is laid out over 3 floors. An entrance hall leads to a spectacular triple height, inner Reception Hall which is a wonderful surprise and immediately sets the tone for this magnificent home. At Ground floor, there is very elegant yet comfortable family living accommodation to include, a Drawing room which leads into a Conservatory with access to a private walled garden to the front of the house. From the Drawing room you also have access to a comfortable Sitting room and Dining room beyond with a pleasant outlook over the rear garden. These interconnecting reception rooms provide a wonderful space from which to entertain or, can be easily separated by French doors between the rooms into individual comfortable rooms for day to day living. There is a beautifully appointed solid oak Dalkey Design kitchen at the heart of the house with bespoke cabinetry and complete with Aga adding to the warmth of this special family home. There is also a spacious utility room and guest wc with a feature sauna. To the front of the house there is a well-appointed and comfortable study with access to the entrance hall. A truly elegant mahogany staircase with distinctive wrought iron balustrades gently leads you from the ground floor to the upper floors beyond. At First floor there are 4 spacious double bedrooms and a generous single bedroom, the primary bedroom offers ensuite shower facilities. At this level there is also a contemporary Family bathroom. There is also a bespoke Oakline library / computer desk providing an additional workspace pleasantly positioned on the first floor enjoying the benefit of the overhead natural light flooding the inner Reception Hall below. On the Second floor, there are two further large double bedrooms and a shower room. At this level there is yet another unexpected surprise within this fascinating home. A feature Family room with vaulted ceilings and mezzanine accommodation is situated at this level. This is a wonderful ‘get away’ space which enjoys privacy and seclusion from the rest of the house, ideal for teenagers or for visitor accommodation, it is an additional bonus to the already extensive accommodation below. Houses of this calibre, offering such extensive; beautifully presented family accommodation rarely come to the market. The appeal of The Gables however, extends beyond the magnificent accommodation within. To the rear there is a very substantial Mews / Garage offering ancillary space to the main house. The Mews has the benefit of a fully fitted kitchen, a discrete but extensive temperature-regulated wine cellar as well as a very extensive garage presently used as a home gym and vehicular garage with triple doors to front. This space offers an abundance of possibilities including the option to create an ancillary but separate dwelling to the main residence. The Gables sits comfortably within its own grounds of cleverly designed landscaped gardens offering a variety of options from which to enjoy the private grounds. To the front there is a secluded private Walled Garden which benefits from westerly sunshine. This private space is accessed via a wrought iron gate from the driveway to front and accessed internally from the Conservatory. This is an ideal outdoor dining space to take advantage of the last of the evening sunshine in a secluded and private setting. To the rear, the well planted gardens are laid out to maximise the southerly day long sunshine. The landscaped gardens surround the property and provide ample outdoor space accessed from several areas within the house. The low maintenance gated driveway to the front is surrounded by high granite walls and flowerbeds. A gated side passage provides direct access to the Mews / Garage which could be used for a variety of uses. A planted pergola separates the vehicular entrance to the garage from the paved rear patio that is overlooked from the Kitchen and Dining area with raised planted flower beds. The detached Mews spans the width of the property to the rear and sits discretely within the site. Rathgar is a much sought after residential suburb approximately 3.5km from Dublin City Centre.
