This is an utterly stunning, superbly presented 4-bedroom Victorian home positioned on one of Dublin 6 s premier roads between the intersections of Windsor Road and Cowper Road. Close to verdant Palmerston Park and within a very short walk of 2 Luas stops at Beechwood and Cowper, this is a really terrific welcoming home, perfect for comfortable family living and entertaining.
Number 55 has been extended and transformed both inside and out with great flair and design evident, offering 300 sq.m. (approx. to include the attic space) of immensely stylish accommodation. The wonderful interior does not disappoint in terms of layout, space, light and design. Rooms of elegant proportions rich in period detail, including marble mantelpieces, ornate ceiling plasterwork and sash windows, which epitomise the elegance of a bygone age, are enhanced now by a classic contemporary style, not to mention the abundance of natural light flooding through each floor. The current owners have been daring in their choice of vibrant colours and d cor. This has brought to life an already charming and character-rich house, making it a home of great warmth, atmosphere and individuality in equal measure.
This is undoubtedly a home to be lived in and enjoyed on all levels with a perfect balance of living, reception and bedroom accommodation over three levels. Two beautifully proportioned interconnecting reception rooms with fine period detail are ideal for entertaining and family living on the piano nobile (hall level). Upstairs there are four double bedrooms over the first floor and its return - three of which are ensuite. The principle bedroom enjoys a wonderful view out over Palmerston Road and opens into a contemporary Jack & Jill bathroom. The attic has been converted providing an additional versatile space and comes complete with a washroom closet and substantial under eaves storage.
At the bright garden level, there is a lovely family room to the front and a Newcastle Design bespoke kitchen/breakfast room to the rear, with an open plan informal dining area and living area. A cleverly designed laundry/utility room, guest w.c./shower room and generous storage facilities are all located at this level too.
The impressive gardens are a noteworthy feature of this fine home, having been professionally landscaped by Evergreen Landscapes. The front garden, which is formal in design, is laid out primarily in gravel, bordered by mature trees and box hedging with the original wrought iron railings and pedestrian access. A paved patio area is secreted away and enjoys a sunny westerly aspect. The sizeable rear garden (c.53ft long) is laid out in low maintenance synthetic lawn with a sandstone patio perfect for al fresco dining and relaxing, located just off the open plan kitchen/dining/living room. A small putting green provides for an element of fun and distraction for young and old alike. A double roller shutter provides valuable vehicular access from and to a rear laneway, accessed from Windsor Road. There is also an electric car charging point both practical and topical.
The location is terrific - an area with a real sense of community, within walking distance of 2 Luas stops at Beechwood and Cowper. There is an extensive choice of amenities including excellent local shopping, educational and recreational facilities at Ranelagh, Rathmines and Donnybrook. Sports facilities close by include Brookfield Tennis Club, Dartry Health Club, Donnybrook Tennis Club, Riverview Racquet and Fitness Club, Bective Rugby Club and Leinster Cricket Club. Some of Dublin s best schools are within easy reach including Gonzaga and Muckross Colleges, Alexandra College and St Mary s College. Excellent national schools include Kildare Place, Scoil Bhr de, Ranelagh Multi-Denominational and Sandford National schools. The city centre is approximately 2 miles from the property.
This is undoubtedly a handsome home Victorian in design whilst modern in comfort, contemporary in d cor and specification with landscaped gardens front and rear. All of this and more coupled with a superb location presents the discerning buyer with a fantastic opportunity to put down roots in what is a beautiful property, finding themselves part of a wonderful community in Dublin 6 as a bonus.
