This stunningly elegant two storey over garden level period residence provides spacious accommodation of outstanding quality, which is beautifully presented throughout with many of the original period features intact including ceiling cornices, centre roses, marble fireplaces and sash windows with original window shutters. The current owners have extended the property to the rear, adding a modern two-storey extension designed by Walker Architects, now resulting in a home that offers a perfect balance of living and bedroom accommodation. It enjoys a prime location on St John s Road, one of Sandymount s most attractive and sought-after tree lined roads, linking Strand Road with Park Avenue.
On entering the property up the flight of granite steps and through the original hall door with stained glass fanlight, you immediately feel the sense of elegance in the entrance hall and the double interconnecting drawing rooms. On the hall floor return, there is a double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and a well-appointed bathroom. The garden level is a perfect everyday space with an interconnecting kitchen, dining room and living room which open to the south facing patio. A practical utility room, shower room and playroom / fifth bedroom complete the accommodation at this level. There is also separate access to the front garden. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, one with an ensuite. A large family bathroom is located on the first-floor return.
To the front of the property, the property is well set back from the road with off street car parking. The rear garden benefits from a southerly orientation with imitation lawn and a large patio area is ideal for al fresco dining. There is a large garden room and pedestrian access to the rear lane.
The property could not be more conveniently located, being just a short stroll from Sandymount Strand and Sandymount village with its unique village atmosphere and excellent choice of shops, boutiques, and restaurants. Also within a short walking distance are Sydney Parade and Sandymount DART stations which, combined with several bus routes, ensure easy access into and across the city. Just some of the other amenities close-by include the Westwood Leisure Centre, Claremont Tennis Club/Railway Union Cricket, Hockey and Football Club, the RDS, the Intercontinental Hotel, Aviva Stadium, St Vincent s University Hospital and the Merrion Shopping Centre. Many of Dublin s premier schools and several universities are also within easy reach.
