- Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty

A most charming semi-detached family home built c.1928, superbly located on the sunny southerly side of this quiet residential road tucked away off Park Drive, only moments away from the Luas stop at Cowper. Although well maintained by its owners whose family have owned this house since 1970, it requires modernisation. The bright, spacious accommodation extends to 168 sqm /1808 sq ft approx. (plus garage at 12.5 sq m / 135 sq ft) and comprises a large entrance hallway, interconnecting reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, guest w.c. and a garage on the ground floor with five bedrooms, bathroom and separate w.c. upstairs.
This is a property that will appeal to a variety of buyers ideal in size and style for the buyer wishing to move from a larger house and wanting to stay in the area; also likely to appeal to the family buyer, as it offers tremendous potential to extend the existing accommodation to create a wonderful family home done to one s own taste and specification (subject to relevant planning permission) in this much sought-after location.
The south facing rear garden is a lovely feature (50ft. x 34ft. approx.), enjoying tremendous seclusion, a real oasis of peace with a large lawn, bordered by mature shrubs and trees. A charming, mature front garden with secure off-street parking and gated side access is a further bonus.
The location and convenience are first class - a quiet road with a true neighbourhood feel and sense of community. The close proximity of the Luas affords great access to the city centre, Dundrum shopping centre and further afield in both directions. Ranelagh and Rathmines offer superb shopping and a choice of popular restaurants and bars, boutique shopping and specialist delicatessens. Local shopping at Dunville Avenue is a short walk away .... or one stop on the Luas. Some excellent sports facilities in the area include Milltown Golf Club, Brookfield Tennis Club, Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club, David Lloyd Riverview and Leinster Cricket Club.
For families, some of Dublin s best schools are within a short walking distance. Junior schools include Scoil Bhr de, Lios na n g, Sandford National, Kildare Place and Rathgar Junior. Senior schools within walking distance include Alexandra College, Gonzaga College, Sandford Park, Muckross Park and St Mary s College to name a few.
