Sherry FitzGerald are very proud to introduce No. 45 Rathdown Drive to the market, without a doubt one of the finest family homes in Terenure to come to the market this year.
Built at the turn of the 19th Century, this stunning family home originally formed part of the Shaw estate and has been beautifully refurbished and extended by its current owners to maximise natural sunlight throughout the accommodation. Style, detail and impeccable workmanship have combined to create the perfect family home.
As soon as one steps beyond the threshold, the owner’s attention to detail is immediately evident throughout. A welcoming entrance hall leads to an elegant reception room, and light filled living room. At the heart of this stunning home lies a magnificent, open-plan, bespoke kitchen and dining/family area where it is clear to see the incredible vision of the owner and architect in creating a light filled masterpiece perfect for modern living and entertaining with double doors leading to the patio area and on to the landscaped sunny back garden. A generous utility room off the kitchen with ample storage space also serves as access to the back garden. The former garage has been converted to a games room which is spacious and bright due to high ceilings and velux windows. This room also leads onto a study to the front of the house. Upstairs on the first floor there are three large bedrooms, a stylish family bathroom and a study. The attic has been cleverly converted to accommodate the master bedroom with generous en-suite.
The gardens both front and rear are a wonderful asset to the property. The landscaped front offers generous off street parking. The glorious 50 ft approx. sun drenched rear garden is very private with a manicured lawn, while the patio area provides the perfect place for relaxation or entertaining ‘al fresco’.
The property enjoys an almost unparalleled sense of convenience being between the villages of Terenure and Templeogue and close to all possible amenities of the Dublin 6 area, with well-established local junior schools such as St. Pius X Junior School, St. Joseph's Boys School and Rathgar Junior close by. Senior schools including The High School, Stratford College, Terenure College, Presentation and Our Lady's School are all within walking distance. The extensive recreational amenities and facilities of Bushy Park are a short stroll away as is excellent local shopping at Terenure, Templeogue and Rathfarnham. The area is also very well serviced by direct bus routes to the city centre as well as being within easy access of the M50.
