Description

Sherry FitzGerald are very proud to introduce No. 45 Rathdown Drive to the market, without a doubt one of the finest family homes in Terenure to come to the market this year.

Built at the turn of the 19th Century, this stunning family home originally formed part of the Shaw estate and has been beautifully refurbished and extended by its current owners to maximise natural sunlight throughout the accommodation. Style, detail and impeccable workmanship have combined to create the perfect family home.

As soon as one steps beyond the threshold, the owner’s attention to detail is immediately evident throughout. A welcoming entrance hall leads to an elegant reception room, and light filled living room. At the heart of this stunning home lies a magnificent, open-plan, bespoke kitchen and dining/family area where it is clear to see the incredible vision of the owner and architect in creating a light filled masterpiece perfect for modern living and entertaining with double doors leading to the patio area and on to the landscaped sunny back garden. A generous utility room off the kitchen with ample storage space also serves as access to the back garden. The former garage has been converted to a games room which is spacious and bright due to high ceilings and velux windows. This room also leads onto a study to the front of the house. Upstairs on the first floor there are three large bedrooms, a stylish family bathroom and a study. The attic has been cleverly converted to accommodate the master bedroom with generous en-suite.

The gardens both front and rear are a wonderful asset to the property. The landscaped front offers generous off street parking. The glorious 50 ft approx. sun drenched rear garden is very private with a manicured lawn, while the patio area provides the perfect place for relaxation or entertaining ‘al fresco’.

The property enjoys an almost unparalleled sense of convenience being between the villages of Terenure and Templeogue and close to all possible amenities of the Dublin 6 area, with well-established local junior schools such as St. Pius X Junior School, St. Joseph's Boys School and Rathgar Junior close by.

The extensive recreational amenities and facilities of Bushy Park are a short stroll away as is excellent local shopping at Terenure, Templeogue and Rathfarnham.

Dunross, Barnhill Road, Dalkey, Co Dublin, A96 X2T7

€1,775,000 - Asking Price|4 Bedrooms, 335 sqm approx

Dunross is a very fine detached three storey family home set back off Barnhill Road behind old granite walls and electronic timber gates; enjoying the utmost in privacy, seclusion and sea views. An utterly charming exterior disguises the substantial and generously proportioned accommodation laid out over three levels. What was once a modest 1930’s house is now a tastefully extended home which enjoys a deceptively spacious floor area of 335 sq.m. that will appeal to any growing family.

When the current owner added the entertainment area 12 years ago he wanted something that was more dramatic than the traditional extension ideas being offered by Architects. He turned to Rob Jacob of JLS Design in Kinsale. Rob’s background is in design of super yachts, originally alongside Ron Holland and now with the JLS team. Rob designed the double height room to the front in an unusual vaulted shape which brings out the three dimensional thinking of a boat designer.

The accommodation briefly comprises of entrance hall, large double height entertainment room, interconnecting dining, drawing and library, super Pogenpohl kitchen, utility and guest w.c. at hall level. Upstairs there are four very large double bedrooms, three of which are en-suite, and a family bathroom. The two bedrooms to the rear have large picture windows and enjoy stunning sea views over Dublin Bay to Howth and beyond. At lower garden level there is a beautifully appointed family room and home gym. There are three very useful basement storage areas. An annexe to the side accommodates a comfortable home office.
