Straide House, ideally situated on Ailesbury Drive which links Ailesbury Road with Anglesea Road, benefits from one of Dublin’s most popular and sought after residential locations in the heart of Dublin 4’s Embassy belt.
One of the property’s outstanding features is the magnificent double height atrium style hallway with its feature gallery landing at first floor level. Off the very impressive hall at ground floor level is the elegant light filled drawing room with pillared arch leading to the dining area. Both these rooms overlook the sun drenched south/west facing back garden.
To the front of the property is a good-sized living room. On the other side of the hall running the full depth of the house is the impressive hand crafted fully fitted kitchen with access through to the breakfast room which in turn provides access to a cosy TV/family room. This area is cleverly designed so that each of the 3 areas can be separated or made open plan. Off the kitchen is a good-sized back kitchen/utility room with access to the back garden. Also on the ground floor is a guest wc and separate cloakroom.
Another unique feature of the property is the large wine cellar with stair access from under the stairs in the hall.
