This is without doubt one of the most beautifully refurbished and presented period homes to come to the market this year in Dublin 6. No stone has been left unturned in refurbishing and presenting this stylish and tasteful residence, incorporating the wonderful features synonymous with its era and now making this home a showcase for Victorian Ireland while blending and mixing perfectly with the more modern confident and fashion conscious Ireland that we are all accustomed to today.

Magnificently transformed both inside and out by its current owner under the supervision of interior designer Kay Egginton of Eco Interiors, the result is the creation of a truly captivating and stylishly presented interior that one would expect to see in an interior design magazine. The immensely stylish and refurbished accommodation will not fail to impress and viewing is the only way to appreciate what this home has to offer. A true labour of love, no expense has been spared in creating this amazing home where the use of only the finest quality materials and attention to detail ensure that this really is a home of distinction in the heart of Dublin 6.

The convenience of this location speaks for itself and is only a short commute from the city centre and all of the amenities that this popular area has to offer including local shops at Dunville Avenue and Ranelagh Village, home to many fine specialist shops and restaurants. Some of Dublin's finest schools are also close by. While home to the Canadian Embassy and Scoil Bride, Oakley Road is a quiet residential road within 4 minutes walking distance of Ranelagh / Beechwood LUAS Stops and a short walk to Rathmines Village and the Swan Shopping Centre. There are also excellent Recreational Parks within easy access of Ranelagh Village.

This is, undoubtedly, a genuinely special and immensely stylish home with a spacious interior which successfully combines period detail and enormous character with a classic contemporary style and all the comforts and conveniences one could wish for.
