Number 12 Palmerston Gardens is a warm and inviting red brick bay windowed Edwardian semi-detached family home, ideally tucked away between Cowper Road and Palmerston Road on what is regarded as one of Rathmines most loved and mature residential locations. Extending to 213 sq.m / 2,293 sq.ft. approx., the house combines many original period Edwardian details with some modernised features, with great flow from home to garden and rooms of elegant proportions synonymous of its time. In the same ownership since 1956, this special family home has been lovingly cared for throughout the years and is now ready for a new family to enjoy. A charming entrance hall, a superb open carved staircase and a stained-glass window gives a taste of what lies ahead. Two elegant interconnecting reception rooms are further enhanced by a sunroom extension providing extra reception space and linking the house to the garden, all perfect for modern open plan family living and entertaining. The spacious kitchen / dining room has three large picture windows through to the sunroom and enjoys a lovely aspect over the rear garden. Upstairs there is terrific bedroom accommodation with 4 bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate WC. There is also a WC off the entrance hall. A number of neighbouring houses have converted their attic spaces, which offers further scope for extra living space if required (subject to p.p.). Outside, there is a gated private garden to the front with mature shrubs and hedging, a paved parking area for several cars and a gated side passage. To the rear, the garden enjoys exceptional seclusion. A large patio is accessed from both the sunroom and kitchen. An ideal space for soaking up the summer sun and al fresco dining. A curved lawn is bordered by shrubs, plants and specimen trees providing year-round interest. A second secluded patio at the end of the garden leads to a block-built work shed which could easily be converted into a home office, a studio, or a gym. Superbly convenient, the property is just 3 kilometres from St. Stephen s Green, with Ranelagh, Rathmines and Rathgar all very close.
