Sherry FitzGerald are delighted to introduce to the market 10 Royal Canal Terrace.
Number 10 provides a rare opportunity to purchase a unique double fronted family home set off the Phibsborough Road. Behind the façade of this magnificent two storey over basement, the property has been well maintained by its current owners with an impressive architect designed ground floor extension providing picturesque views overlooking the rear garden. It is clearly evident this is a much loved home and light is something this house has in abundance as natural light floods the accommodation all day long.
Upon entering this fine home, there is a dual aspect living room to the right and a second reception room to the left, currently in use as a bedroom. Steps lead into an inner hallway with garden access and modern bathroom. The kitchen / dining room has picturesque views of the rear garden with a pitched roof providing a two dimensional design and draws your eye to the garden. The kitchen has an extensive range of units, kitchen island and underfloor heating. At basement level, there is ample understairs storage, a pantry/utility room and double bedroom with ensuite. On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, both dual aspect with built in wardrobes.
A description of this fine home would not be complete without mentioning the superb 125 ft long landscaped west facing rear garden. Standing in the rear garden it is hard to imagine you are within easy reach of Dublin city centre as both the house and gardens have a truly tranquil feel. Year round beauty and privacy are afforded by mature foliage, fruit trees, plants and shrubs. There is a patio area perfect for al fresco dining and a large vegetable plot. At the end of the garden there is a concrete shed ideal for additional storage. A gravelled car parking area is also provided here with access from a rear laneway. To the front, there is a pedestrian path to the front door bordered by wrought iron railings and a neat lawn.
Local facilities are in abundance whilst only a stones throw from Phibsborough & Stoneybatter and all that they have to offer with restaurants and leisure amenities to include the sports grounds in Mt. Bernard Park, Blessington Basin and the Royal Canal Walk. It is located adjacent to the magnificent new entrance for TUD, Grangegorman across from Kings Inns, while the Mater Hospital, Botanic gardens and Phoenix Park are a short walk away. Commuting in the city centre is a leisurely stroll, transport links include the Broadstone LUAS stop which is less than a five minute walk, an excellent bus service and a Dublin Bikes station closeby allowing easy access for all commuters. The planned Dublin Metro will have its nearest stop at the Mater Hospital which is less than a 5 minute walk. There is easy access to the N2, N3, M50 and Dublin Airport approximately a 20 minute drive.
All in all a fantastic family home of immense character and charm!
