Hume Auctioneers- We Get The Pick Of The Crop
Behold A Timeless Masterpiece.
Maglona terrace has always been a firm favourite here with all the team in Hume Auctioneers, and this masterpiece has just sent us into a tailspin.
Stunningly beautiful outside and in, this is perhaps the finest townhouse in the entire region.
Built by the Hynes family in the first half of the last century, Maglona Terrace is a picture-perfect row of just 10 character filled homes that boast some of the finest architectural details to be found anywhere in town. With chamfered walls, master craftsman joinery, terrazzo floors and even a milk bottle receptacle, these homes were always a cut above.
No.6 is one of the signature homes in the row being one of just two non-terraced houses.
The vendors, inspired by the original build and design quality of the home, have taken the property into the 21st century and beyond with a level of detail, design features and living standards that pay homage to the property's origins whilst creating a modern masterpiece in the style and quality of a Kensington townhouse.
Everything is jawdroppingly beautiful.
Always catching the eye of passers-by, the property oozes kerb appeal and suggests a home of great style. However, nothing can prepare you for what waits inside.
Pause in the entrance portico and appreciate the detailed mouldings, chequered stone tiling and handmade door.
Step inside and be amazed. A beautiful handmade staircase complete with handcarved stair ends, newel posts and finials, sets the tone for a handbuilt home of exceptional standards. The original stone floor looks as magnificent today as when first laid. Built like a Swiss watch, every detail was created by hand.
The recently added understairs storage and beautiful lighting are just some of the many features added to make the house perfect for today's lifestyle.
The sitting room with its massive picture bay window and moody palette evokes a space of pure relaxation. With handcrafted double-glazed windows, this room is church-quiet, contradicting its most convenient location.
A gorgeous dining room (with a brickback fireplace and bespoke cabinets) extends to the rear of the property. Surprisingly spacious, this room is ideal for family dining or grand scale entertaining and with the double patio doors leading to the feature playgarden, this room quietly screams PARTY.
With a clever remodelling, the accommodation manages to include a spacious guest WC, the first designer utility room we have ever seen, and a beautiful and light filled kitchen which manages to include, dining, cooking and storage space, demonstrating the extensive accommodation in this unique home.
Upstairs there are three exceptional bedrooms, all three full or light and character. Bedroom two and three both enjoy peaceful views over the amazing garden whilst the master bedroom boasts an ensuite and walk in wardrobe.
The designer bathroom once again is evocative of a luxury pied-a-terre. With quality materials and a relaxing palette, this room is perfect for a long-soaking evening bath or morning refreshing shower.
The landing once again reminds us of the original loveliness of the home, with a ball finial and devastatingly beautiful original doors put there lest we forget.
And just when you thought a single property could offer no more, a drop down stairs leads to a wonderous converted attic with fully finished walls, flooring and full electrical spec, all combining to create an "in-the-now" home office, games room, home theatre or even just boring storage space.
With gas fired central heating, rational style double glazed doors and a host of energy saving measures, No.6 boasts a most respectable C3 rating, something seldom found alongside this level of period charm.
But perhaps the biggest surprise of this splendid home is the breathtakingly beautiful garden. Unbelievably quiet and private it is the perfect space for a family playing, dinner parties or premium relaxation time. The mature trees make this space totally private. And whilst the interior suggests Kensington, the rear garden with its lush lawns, dining deck, spacious shed, cute kennel, low lighting and private play area, possibly even whispers Chelsea.
Maglona Terrace is just walking distance from schools, shops, Train station and Portlaoise town centre, and with super-fast broadband, it offers modern convenience like no other.
Hume Auctioneers was founded in 1940, around the same time as this magnificent home was constructed, and we doubt in all that time, we have ever listed a more perfect home.
Viewing Highly Recommended.
