Colliers are delighted to bring No 10 Pembroke Road to the market. Arguably one of the finest residences on this period tree lined road, No 10 presents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a truly fabulous, fully restored and extended, five-bedroom plus apartment, late Georgian yellow brick residence with original penny struck lime pointing in the heart of Ballsbridge and only minutes' walk from St Stephens Green and Dublin's Silicon Docks, that has stood proudly for over 200 year while having been meticulously restored and extensively upgraded in 2015 by its current owners to create this perfect old-world new fusion family home.
No 10 Pembroke road is an exceptional late Georgian residence built in the early 1800's extending to approx. 310 sq.m. (3,336 sq.ft) over four floors, and a very fine example of the architecture of that era. The property provides generously proportioned light filled accommodation over four floor and retains many distinctive features, including cornices embellished with decorative mouldings, picture and chair rails, high ceilings, ceiling roses, panelled doors, shuttered sliding sash windows, original floors, fully functioning fireplaces and an impressive solid entrance hall door complete with original box lock. Carefully added modern additions including extensive insulation, a top of the range zoned twin boiler heating system with cast iron period style radiators throughout and under floor heating in all principle bathrooms and in the stunning dual aspect kitchen/dining area with double height ceilings and floor to ceiling glass windows and doors that bring the outside in.
Nicely set back from Pembroke Road, just a stone's throw from Baggot Street Bridge, the property is approached via a well planted front garden including bamboo hedge, box hedging in the original design configuration and a blooming cherry blossom tree leading to a flight of granite steps with original wrought iron railing with a flowering wisteria rising to the front door with fanlight over opening and above are the original cast iron balconettes on the first floor faé§ade.
Upon entering the property, you are instantly struck by its elegance, tranquil ambience and charm.
The light filled entrance hall flows perfectly from the front to the rear, exuding character while providing access and setting the tone for what's to follow. The preserved staircase with hardwood banister is but one of the many original features retained throughout the property including original glass fanlight, cornices embellished with decorative mouldings and decorative arch which so many period properties have sadly lost over time.
Off the hall, to the left are the two principle interconnecting reception rooms with original dividing bi-folding doors, boasting high ceilings and a bay of shuttered sliding sash windows at either end of each room which naturally flood with light from dawn until dusk and include two stunning white marble fireplaces, from Belle Cheminee.
To the rear of the property steps down lead to a modern kitchen / dining room with additional seated area that has been designed with indoor outdoor living in mind, featuring floor to ceiling glazing with one set of double door leading out to private granite paved courtyard and another to the 100 ft long landscaped rear garden and comes complete with a solid wood Victorian Kitchen Company designed kitchen, finished with natural marble counters and natural stone floors.
Upstairs on the first return is a tastefully appointed oversized bathroom featuring a roll top cast iron bath, walk in rainfall shower and bespoke marble topped double sink.
There are five generously proportioned bedrooms in total. The master suite occupies the entire 1st floor where the two largest interconnecting rooms can be used as one suite or two double bedrooms. The second/top floor provides two further generously proportioned double bedrooms with custom built John Ireland fitted wardrobes.
The second return provides the second fully tiled bathroom with deep set bath.
At garden level is the 5th bedroom and garden studio with full kitchen and bathroom. This portion of the house can be independently accessed and offers an excellent home with income opportunity or an independent living option for an older child or elderly family member.
Outside the front garden is bounded by ornate wrought iron railings over granite plinth and decorative hedging. The garden is mature and planted to provide colour all year around. There are specimen trees including a Cherry Blossom. The extensive rear garden is 100 ft long and enjoys a westerly aspect with a large patio and lawn areas including a sunken trampoline and custom-built skater half pipe. It enjoys quiet privacy from the surrounding gardens and the patio is a warm westerly sun trap suitable for summer entertaining.
No. 10 Pembroke Road is set on this revered tree lined road and is a truly magnificent family home which exudes old world charm and ambience with all the benefits of 21st century living. The location is second to none enjoying every conceivable convenience with a parade of shops, café's, chemists and Tesco on Lower Baggot Street as well as a variety of choice, restaurants and hotel's including The Dylan Hotel, Searson's, Angelina's, and Roly's.
The city centre and financial districts are in short walking distance as are tech giants, Google, Facebook, Linkedin and Stripe. Both Barrow Street and Lansdowne DART stations are within close proximity. St. Vincent's University Hospital and UCD as well as the Aviva Stadium, the R.D.S and numerous sporting clubs including Westwood Gym and Elm Park golf club are again nearby. Many of south Dublin's premier schools are within 2 km of Pembroke Road which include St Conleth's, Alexandra College, St Michaels, Sandford Park School, Gonzaga, C.U.S., Muckross Park and Teresians to name but a few. The LUAS Green line at St. Stephen Green is just a 15-minute walk which offers quick and easy access to Dundrum Town Centre. There are also excellent bus links including the popular ,46A, the Air Coach stop in Ballsbridge and Upper Lesson Street which provides a direct link to Dublin International Airport. All in all, the location could not be better.
