This fine Victorian residence is one of only six end-terrace residences on this popular and much sought after road in the heart of Ballsbridge. Set well back from the road with good frontage it benefits from ample off-street parking provided by the graveled driveway to the front. The property was built c. 1840 by a builder who built this house for himself and the next 3 adjoining houses for his daughters. A flight of granite steps with clematis clad iron railing lead to a fan-lit front door and opens to the entrance hallway. This in turn has a door with stained glass fanlight and opens to a bright and welcoming hallway. A delightful banister rises gracefully with mahogany hand rail and delicate spindles drawing the eye up to the magnificent ornate skylight . The skylight is framed by decorative plasterwork and reflects light through the well of the stairs ensuring this area is flooded with natural light throughout the day. Off the hall is an elegantly proportioned drawing room with two large sash windows overlooking the garden to the front. It is awash with period detail to include ornate coving, sash windows with working shutters and a period white marble fireplace with cast-iron inset. The dining room is located behind the living room to the back of the house with similar period detail and a door leading to a family room to the side of the house. This room was added over 30 years ago as part of a 3 storey extension sympathetically extended maximizing the use of an enviable wide site. This room is slightly less formal and enjoys a dual aspect with sash window to the front mirroring those of the living room. It has maple flooring and connects the living room with the dining room for the perfect flow of accommodation. Off the hallway there is a guest wc and a family kitchen cum breakfast room. The kitchen is dual aspect with hand painted grey kitchen units. There are sliding double doors opening out to a south facing terrace and steps down to the garden. The first floor accommodation has four bedrooms all located off a bright and airy landing. The main bedroom has a luxuriously appointed bathroom cum dressing room en-suite. In addition there is a large well-appointed family bathroom. The garden level of the property contains two further double bedrooms both with ensuite shower rooms. It enjoys a large living area off which is located the kitchen, a utility room and store room with vaulted ceiling. The garden level has direct access to the garden at the rear. This is an impressive Victorian residence enjoying all the features synonymous with its era.
