Description

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to create a particularly attractive town residence, prestigious own hall door office building or lucrative investment property in one of Dublin’s most charming and convenient terraces enjoying a lovely outlook over lawned open space and the River Dodder to the front.

To the rear of this particularly attractive two storey over basement double fronted period property is a large courtyard which is currently occupied by a 75sq.m./800sq.ft. (approx.), single storey extension and off street parking for 3/4 cars. This area of the property is ripe for a sizeable 2 storey residential/office extension (subject to pp) in addition to retaining 2 parking spaces.

The property enjoys a highly desirable location in the heart of Ballsbridge and directly next door to the well regarded Herbert Park Hotel and around the corner from the 34 acres of recreational amenities of Herbert Park and the excellent cafes, gastro pubs and restaurants in Ballsbridge.

Ballsbridge, which has for generations been regarded as Dublin’s premier residential location, is now becoming one of the city’s most sought after office locations due to the recent development of some of the city’s most impressive state of the art commercial developments.

The upper 2 floors and single storey extension to the rear of the property are currently laid out as exceptionally bright and well appointed offices. In the attic, there are 2 additional rooms currently used as offices. The basement is laid out as a residential flat which requires significant upgrading.

The offices are current rented for €70,000 p.a. until June 2018. However, the property is being sold with full vacant possession if required. The basement flat is already vacant.

€1,595,000 - Asking Price|4 Bedrooms, 272 sqm approx

A most attractive two-storey over basement residence, no.4 occupies an imposing position in this terrace of eight, handsome red brick Victorian homes. Boasting elegantly proportioned rooms which are complimented by an abundance of very fine original features, the property has incredible potential to be transformed into a wonderful family home (subject to p.p.) with a west facing rear garden and secure gated vehicular rear access into a garage. Positioned just around the corner from Monkstown village, this fine home has a wealth of popular amenities and transport facilities on its doorstep and is sure to appeal to a wide audience.

The presence of such features is of great benefit to the discerning purchaser, rather than having to reinstate them.

Currently laid out as three separate units, the accommodation is over three floors. At garden level the apartment comprises; porch with store room, living room overlooking the front garden and opening to the dining room, separate study, kitchen with large pantry area, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. At entrance hall level, a wide hallway offers access to the two further apartments. On this level there are two large interconnecting reception rooms with a guest w.c.
