Site area 0.53acres (approx.) with vehicular and pedestrian access to the rear. Excellent development potential (subject to Planning Permission)
An opportunity not to be overlooked! We have great pleasure in offering to the market this imposing two storey over garden level bay windowed, Victorian era dwelling benefiting from an enviable southwest facing aspect and a large rear garden (total site area approximately 0.53acres). Without doubt, a combination that is hard to find and rarely becomes available in such a sought after and prime south Dublin suburb that enjoys such convenience to the City Centre.
This appealing and spacious home is situated on Merrion Road, midway between the junctions with Ailesbury Road and Shrewsbury Road, two of Dublin's most noteworthy thoroughfares. Dublin City Centre / St Stephens Green is approximately 4km to the north. The area has a good choice of local services and amenities with the Merrion Shopping Centre and the villages of both Donnybrook and Sandymount being within easy reach. Public transport services include the Dart Rail Line and several frequent Dublin bus routes. In addition to the UCD Belfield Campus, A number of well-regarded schools, are also within walking distance. These include St Michael's College, Willow Park, Blackrock College, St Conleths College, Muckross Park College, Gonzaga College and Sandford Park.
The property benefits from a vehicular & pedestrian Right of Way along its northwest boundary which is shared with the access avenue to Wanderers FC (Rugby Club). This presents a development opportunity (subject to P.P) to the rear of the house while still preserving a generous garden with the existing dwelling.
Set back from the road, "Theberton" is an elegant semi-detached red brick family home which extends to approximately 500sqm, (5,382sq. ft), to include a self-contained and independently accessed apartment/au-pair suite at garden level.
To the front there is a railed garden which is finished in loose gravel and has off street parking for several cars. The extensive rear gardens (43m x 15m approx.) are bordered by a cut stone granite wall, the gardens are mainly in lawn and planted with a wide selection of mature flowering shrubs and fruit trees. There is also a large patio area adjacent to the rear of the dwelling. The orchard, (23m x 32m approx.) which traverses the boundary of the neighbouring property provides scope for possible development (subject to the granting of Planning Permission) of an individual detached marque home, or the possible development of several premium semi-detached / terraced town residences. These wonderfully mature and private gardens benefit from day long sunshine due to the south westerly aspect and further add to the appeal of this special and rare property.
With access at both Garden level and Hall level, the property is generously proportioned throughout and still retains many of the period details which would have been synonymous with its period of construction. These would include original fireplace surrounds and magnificent decorative plasterwork and ceiling roses. The accommodation is extremely spacious and offers endless possibilities in terms of usage and configuration.
A flight of granite steps leads up to the Hall Level and large "L" shaped Reception Hall, off which is the original Butler's Pantry, cloak store and Guest WC. To the front is the Drawing Room with its ornate coving, centre rose and marble fireplace, in addition there is a bay window overlooking the front garden. To the rear is the Living Room with an open fireplace. Next to this is the Study, also with an open fireplace and an original box bay window which provides a wonderful vantage point to look out over the large rear garden and orchard beyond. The garden can be accessed directly from the Study by a flight of steps.
Returning to the Reception Hall, the sweeping staircase leads up to the first floor where there are four large double Bedrooms, a Shower Room, and a Bathroom with original period fittings.
The Garden Level accommodation can be accessed from the Reception Hall and independently from the front garden. The bay windowed Kitchen to the front is well appointed with floor and eye level units together with an island unit. There is also a separate Utility Room / Pantry.
