€3,400,000 - Asking Price For Sale by Private Treaty 290 sqm approx

Description

Number 14 Temple Villas is a warm, comfortable and truly elegant Victorian home dating from 1895. Enviably positioned at the Palmerston Park end of this much sought after road, just a stone's throw from Ranelagh and Cowper Luas Station.

A happy home to the current family since 1991, the entire home has been beautifully maintained, restored, upgraded and the gardens lovingly cared for in that time while keeping true to the original Victorian character and retaining all original period features.

The interior is delightful with rooms of elegant proportions throughout, full of charm, rich in Victorian detail, high ceilings, fine marble mantelpieces and large sash windows. All the elements of comfortable and elegant family living space await you with 3 large reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory/sunroom balanced perfectly by exceptionally generous bedroom and bathroom accommodation. A new owner can still stamp their own mark on this home as there is plenty of potential to further develop as planning permission was recently granted for a single-storey kitchen extension.

The gardens are a wonderful bonus to the property. They enjoy a wonderful orientation - east to the front and west to the back. The front garden has generous off street car parking for several cars behind entrance gates (wired for electric gates) while the back garden is private, screened and sheltered with an array of shrubs and plants.

The property is just 2 miles from St. Stephen's Green within a stroll of Cowper and Beechwood Luas, in a location second to none with Rathmines, Rathgar, Ranelagh and Dartry on its doorstep and close to great local shopping at Upper Rathmines Road and Dunville Avenue. Some of Dublin's best schools are nearby. Trinity college and UCD are within a gentle cycle. The renaissance of Ranelagh and Rathmines gives a choice of trendy restaurants social and shopping amenities.

About the Area

Rathmines is a vibrant suburb on the southside of Dublin, about 3 kilometres south of the city centre. It effectively begins at the south side of the Grand Canal and stretches along the Rathmines Road as far as Rathgar to the south, Ranelagh to the east and Harold's Cross to the west. Rathmines has thriving commercial and civil activity and is well-known across Ireland as part of a traditionally known "flatland" - providing rented accommodation to newly arrived junior civil servants and third level students coming from outside the city since the 1930s.
