Welcome to 6 Garville Road. Without doubt one of the finest period homes to come to the market this year. A singularly attractive mid-terrace 4 bedroom Victorian residence, a truly beautiful family home located on this prestigious Dublin 6 road. A very special property, it has been tirelessly refurbished and modernised from top to toe, to exacting standards by its design-focused current owner resulting, in opulent and luxurious interiors, and well-appointed versatile accommodation over two levels.

The drawing room off the hall runs the length of the property and is rich in period detail. A superbly designed open plan kitchen/breakfast room, which is ideal for entertaining, is a fantastic addition to this fine home. With plenty of space to cook, dine and relax in. The accommodation is extremely versatile with a mix of reception rooms and bedrooms and there is a great symmetry to the design, given the property is double-fronted.

At garden level the lounge opens up on to the stunning south-facing rear garden, a secluded and private outdoor living space. Similarly the master bedroom, a large double room with two walk-in wardrobes and en suite opens up into this beautiful space. There are three further bedrooms at this level, one with en suite.
