This is a most attractive bay windowed, end of terrace period property of immense charm and character, set back from the road with a walled and gated front garden offering off street parking, on this much sought after residential road within a stroll of the LUAS. Built circa 1880, Bella Vista retains many of its period details with curved lintels over the upstairs windows and a fanlight over the front door with much of its interior features intact with plaster cornicing, centre roses, picture and dado rails, panelled doors, detailed architraves and four of its original Victorian fireplaces in situ. In more recent times this property has been home to a dental practice at ground floor level and a three bedroomed apartment at first floor level. However Bella Vista is now ready and waiting for its new owners to reinstate it to the gracious residential dwelling it once was. (Planning permission granted 16th February 2023 Ref. D22A/0879.) Internally the bright and airy rooms of elegant proportions with high ceilings are intact and could with ease be converted back as originally intended to provide the following accommodation; Hall, two reception rooms, kitchen/ breakfast room, utility room, and a guest wc at ground floor level and at first floor level; there is great flexibility to provide either four bedrooms with a study/ fifth bedroom and family bathroom or three bedrooms and an elegant reception room stretching the width of the property ( as mostly likely intended)- looking towards the mountains €" the choice is yours. The location is one of great convenience €" within a stroll of the much acclaimed LUAS at Dundrum providing speedy access to the city centre and beyond.

Leisure facilities abound with the Airfield Estate, the parklands of Orwell, Dartry and Bushy at hand, not forgetting a choice of golf clubs €" Milltown and The Castle. There is a comprehensive selection of well-established schools within walking distance and UCD Belfield is only a short cycle away.
