10 Wellington Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4

€3,250,000 - Asking Price Sale Agreed 381 sqm approx

Description

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a particularly elegant Victorian family home of exceptional character. Further enhancing the appeal of this very impressive residence is the fact that it has retained its full back garden, to the rear of which is a charming stone coach house fronting onto Raglan Lane. This is without question one of Dublin 4’s most sought after addresses being so close to the city centre and a range of local amenities. Wellington Road is within walking distance of some of Dublin's finest junior and secondary schools, while UCD Belfield is a short bus ride away.

Refurbished and extended with great flair and impeccable taste to exacting standards, this remarkably elegant period residence provides 381sq.m/4,100sq.ft. (approx.) of stunning light filled and flexible accommodation on one of Dublin’s most convenient roads.

During the property’s extensive refurbishment, a three storey extension was added to the rear of the property, ensuring the new owner will enjoy all the style, elegance and character of a bygone era with all the conveniences and comforts of modern living. The original stone coach house is ideal for au-pair / granny accommodation or as a games room for kids. Equally, this could be turned into a garage for off street parking (subject to planning) with accommodation on the first floor.

Wellington Road is undoubtedly one of Dublin’s most sought after and convenient residential roads within walking distance of St. Stephen's Green and many of Dublin's principal places of business including Silicon Dock at Grand Canal Dock. Herbert Park is within a short walk and provides superb recreational amenities including tennis, bowling and walks around its 34 acres. Excellent local shopping and restaurants at both Ballsbridge and Donnybrook are all within a short stroll as are some of Dublin's finest schools such as St. Conleths, Gonzaga College, St Michael's College, Sandford Park School and Muckross Park. The R.D.S, Leinster Rugby Headquarters and the AVIVA Stadium are all within a short stroll and the property also benefits from being within 15 minutes’ drive of the airport via the Port Tunnel.

Something Different

Castleton, Sandymount Green, Sandymount, Dublin 4, D04 N156

€2,350,000 - Asking Price|5 Bedrooms, 353 sqm approx

The enchanting castellated facade of Castleton provides one of Sandymount’s most instantly recognisable landmarks, ideally located in the heart of Sandymount Village and close to Sandymount Strand but still offering a true example of rus in urbe standing on a prime southerly site of 0.37 acres. The grounds offer total seclusion and privacy, ideal for ‘al fresco’ dining or just a safe place for children to play. There is also off street car parking behind electronic gates.

Punctuated by original sash windows and crowned by battlements, the façade of this charming period property affords just a hint of the quite exceptional residence which lies within. However, nothing can adequately prepare the visitor for the enchantment which unfolds upon entering this property through the gothic arched doorway which leads directly into a secluded courtyard. This secluded area instantly evokes memories of “The Secret Garden” with its tinkling fountain and mature trees.

From here, an elegant porch provides a suitably grand entrance to this unique property which wraps around three sides of the private courtyard so that every room is flooded with natural light. The gracious dining room to the left of the entrance hall retains its original fireplace and cornicing while windows on three sides provide views of Sandymount Green, the leafy side garden and the internal courtyard. A second doorway leads in turn to the spacious kitchen/breakfast room which benefits from three floor to ceiling windows overlooking the rear garden. A large kitchen island provides a focal point to this room which would be perfect for less formal entertaining. A small utility is accessed from the kitchen. Also, lying off the hall is an attractive booklined library with fireplace and a bow window with door to the rear garden. A dual aspect living room benefits from floor to ceiling doors and windows over both the sunny rear garden and the internal courtyard. One next turns to a pretty bedroom with bow window to the rear garden and ensuite shower room. A second bedroom and a study (equally could be used as a bedroom) overlooking the courtyard, a shower room and a boot room complete the downstairs accommodation.
