Sherry FitzGerald takes great pleasure in presenting this handsome late Victorian family home, on 0.25 acre approx of south facing gardens superbly positioned on this prestigious tree lined road between Dartry and Rathgar. Built c.1885, Number 56 is a superb example of late Victorian architecture having been sensitively maintained over the years to exacting standards without compromising the integrity and feel of the Victorian era.
Extending to approx. 280 sq. m (3,013 sq. ft.) the residence is graced by a wealth of original period detail such as high ceilings with ornate cornice work and ceiling roses, sash windows and fine mantelpieces, all of which have been enhanced by a sympathetic, classical colour scheme throughout.
Upstairs there are 7 bedrooms in total, one of which is currently is use as a study with plenty of potential. A family bathroom completes the accommodation on the top floor.
The gardens on 0.25 acre are a real feature to the home lovingly cared for and nourished over the years. The width of the site may offer further potential to develop subject to planning permission. Generous off street parking is provided with extra space if required behind the double gates.
It is within easy reach of UCD and Trinity and some of Dublin’s best schools including Sandford National, Sandford Park, Alexandra College, Gonzaga College, Kildare Place, Zion National and Stratford College. Luas stops at Cowper Road and Milltown are close to the property affording easy access to St. Stephens Green, & Dundrum. Sports clubs nearby include Milltown Golf Club, David Lloyd Riverview, Brookfield Tennis Club and Dartry Fitness. This truly is a genuinely special family home with the perfect balance of generous reception and bedroom accommodation.
