A Delightful "14 Railway Cottages",
Serpentine Avenue, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4D04E4H6
Bright, Light filled, Chic, Modernistic, Zen-like Family Home, are some of the words to only briefly describe 14 Railway Cottages, off Serpentine Road.
No 14 Railway Cottage is truly a sleek, up to the minute light filled modern home. With a split-level design, facing south into an amphitheater sun court.
Located on Serpentine Avenue, the setting is private and secure behind imposing electric gates. This property will appeal to many, be it a swish corporate executive, or retirees seeking a sunny enclave just looking to live close to the sea and the village life of Sandymount, and with easy reach of everything the City has to offer.
Inside, the 2,106 sq ft of space is largely open plan on the main level, with the kitchen/dining/living area all occupying the same area, but with clever walls, pillars and enough break-up to make it feel like separate rooms.
The floor throughout is marble, however underfloor heating ensures feet are cosy.
There are storage areas abound with plenty of room for different people to do their own thing.
The kitchen, with white gloss units, is fully fitted with a range of appliances. There is a guest WC off the hall.
The main bedroom is upstairs and has an ensuite with a bath and shower. The other two bedrooms are in the lower area, both with access to the front. One has a walk-in wardrobe and is ensuite. There is also a separate bathroom here and a utility room with laundry equipment.
Also at this level is a large hall which is a room in itself. It has polished hardwood floors, and the under--stair space can be utilised as an office or den area, with a plethora of shelving.
The staircase itself is wood and glass. There is a surround sound system in situ .
There is off-street parking for two or three cars, which is a boon in this busy area, and the final "piece de resistance" is the sunken amphitheater sun trap, which is bound to be enjoyed by those seeking
sunny, al fresco space.
The property could lend itself to be used as a potential granny flat having its own entrance.
A rare opportunity to purchase a select secluded private residence in the sought after area,
In an envious position and is right beside the new Facebook HQ which is currently under construction in the heart of Dublin 4.
Although situated off a busy thoroughfare, the house is surprisingly quiet. The DART is close by as is the much sought after village of Sandymount, with a wide selection of schools and amenities all within walking distance. There is off street parking for at least 2 cars and there is also plenty of private outdoor space.
The sunken Garden is without question one of the highlights of this house, it is a secluded, sun drenched and private....the perfect place to entertain, and chill out. Amphitheater style steps wrap around the patio providing a cozy atmosphere....... Truly an oasis in the city...
Views of the front patio and surrounding area are maximized through a wall of windows from the house, which then gives copious amount of natural light.
The area has a huge choice of local amenities with Sandymount village, the Merrion Shopping Centre, the RDS and the beautiful seafront just a short stroll away. Public transport is plentiful with the DART and a wide selection of frequent Dublin Buses also close by. Dublin City is only 2 km away.
There are a host of excellent schools in the area including, St. Michael's College, Muckross Park College, The Teresian School, Gonzaga College and Blackrock College. UCD Belfield and Trinity College are also within walking distance. For sporting fanatics the Aviva Stadium and Lansdowne Rugby Football Club is only one convenient DART stop away.
