Description

Landore Hall is arguably the most dramatic and exciting property to come to the market in south Dublin for some considerable amount of time. Nestled to the rear of Landore, a small enclave of houses off Orwell Road, this imposing 5,000 sq.ft. (approx.) villa style property complete with coach house has been painstakingly and lovingly refurbished to an exacting standard. The superb city location is complemented by stunning privacy to ensure the discerning purchaser can enjoy peace and tranquility whilst being within a stone’s throw to any amenity conceivable. This outstanding home was completely renovated and upgraded by the current owners to exacting standards and it is evident that no stone has been left unturned in what was a truly exceptional restoration.

The Villa provides 5,000sq.ft. (approx) of stunningly elegant light filled accommodation. A flight of granite steps leads to an elegant hallway, which has striking proportions and sets the tone of what is to follow. To the left of the entrance hall are two magnificent interconnecting reception rooms with original sash windows and working shutters, ornate ceiling coving and centre roses. To the right of the entrance hall is a double bedroom currently used as a dressing room and the master bedroom suite. Towards the end of the hall to the right is a bathroom and wc while the left comprises a striking Clive Christian kitchen based on the film ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ and a sunken snooker/games room. There are three further bedrooms at garden level (two ensuite), with one currently in use as an office. Completing the garden floor is a stunning Clive Christian country style kitchen, bathroom, wc and interconnecting living and dining rooms.

The appeal of this truly unique property is further enhanced by the stunningly private, landscaped gardens which include a magnificent detached stone ‘coach house’ ideal as staff/au pair accommodation. The garden is laid mostly in lawn with a paved area perfect for those long summer evenings. The property itself, is accessed through electronic security gates, has a sweeping paved driveway providing an abundance of secure parking. It is boarded by colourful raised flowerbeds and enclosed by the original stone cut wall.

Landore Hall is undoubtedly a genuinely special and immensely stylish home which successfully combines period detail and enormous character with classical style and all the comforts and conveniences one could ever wish for.
