Description

  • Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
  • Overall Floor Area: 140 m²
If you have been searching for a run of the mill home or two up two down in suburbia then No 7 Aughrim Villas is most definitely not for you. However, if you want a home that combines old world classic with cutting edge modern and a garden to die for in the city limits then be careful, you might just fall in love! Built C.1885 and situated in an area of architectural conservation, having gabled breakfronts over paired entrances and shared cut granite steps. No 7 as a standalone house is quite unique. ‘Unique’ is an overused word in our industry but should truly be reserved for homes of this calibre. The property has been renovated and extended to approximately 140sqm (1,500 sqft) but such is the use of space it feels much larger. The current owners have transformed this fine period residence into a city pad with so much more to offer than immediately meets the eye. Behind the red brick façade lies a property of true distinction. Successful period renovations allow the ‘Old & New’ sit together in contrast and harmony and the current owners along with a team of architects, engineers and designers have pulled off just that with a dash of personality. The main house has been carefully renovated and restored to provide for the needs of modern life in sympathy with the fabric of the original house. Downstairs the two reception rooms have largely been preserved with a wall removed to allow for an open plan layout to the kitchen / dining room. Upstairs they opted for a large bathroom instead of a third bedroom and a walk-in wardrobe off the main bedroom, with a splash of colour on one wall to add a touch of vibrancy. The second chapter of this is quite different. The gardens of no 7 and 8 (the neighbouring property, acquired by the current owners) have been combined to allow for a double height box extension to the rear and a garden unlike anything else in the postcode. The architect-designed extension provides for recreation room or additional living space and also accommodates a home office on a mezzanine level with a separate staircase. The intention was to have a home office completely distinct from and yet still part of the main house which has been achieved with some craft and flair. There are custom-made large panel windows upstairs and sliding timber framed doors downstairs so as not to take the eye from the garden beyond. Difficult to simply define as a garden, the amenity space to the rear of No 7 is completely private with rear vehicular access; a fusion of bespoke white concrete flagstones, artificial grass, raised and recessed flower beds as well as seating. There is a point of interest at every glance and yet this professionally designed garden comes together to create a calm and tranquil oasis. The purpose of the original ‘Zen’ gardens was to allow for moments of meditation in a stress-free environment with few distractions and the sound of running water. All of this has been achieved by the garden designers whilst also allowing for off street parking when required and providing for space to entertain friends and dine al fresco on a balmy summer’s evening. This property cannot really be fully described with a standard trope and must really be seen to be fully appreciated!
