Built in 1911 by renowned master builder Alexander Strain, this sale represents only the third time the property has changed ownership since it was built. This stretch of beautifully maintained period houses set on elevated gardens are much sought after and rarely come to the market. For those seeking period features the property has them in abundance such as marble fireplaces, stain glass insets, polished original wooden floors and ornate ceiling covings and has been very well maintained over the years. This sale also presents a new family with the rare opportunity to bring their own style to this spacious and light-filled property.

The accommodation comprises an entrance porch leading to a large hallway with guest w.c, original stain glass hall door and ceiling covings. There are two well-proportioned interconnecting reception rooms, the living room to the front has a beautiful marble fireplace as the main focal point with a bay window flooding the room with light. Double doors lead to the dining room also with an impressive original fireplace. French doors lead to the garden. Both rooms have polished original wooden floors. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern floor and wall units with plenty of room for a dining table. A utility room off the kitchen has floor and wall units and a sink. Upstairs there are four generous sized bedrooms, three large doubles with original fireplaces and a single room. A family bathroom completes the accommodation

The gardens are a particular feature, the front garden is laid in lawn with a driveway offering plenty of off-street parking. Side pedestrian access leads to the rear garden approx. 24m which has been professionally landscaped with no expense spared in creating a stunning contemporary garden with mature planting, lawn area, decking areas and built in seating. The westerly orientation ensures plenty of sunshine and the gardens are very private.

Ballymun Road has long been regarded as one of the most prestigious locations in Glasnevin, just a short stroll from both Drumcondra and Phibsborough villages and within a gentle stroll of the city centre. A well serviced public transport system is available close by with a Luas stop in Phibsborough. There are many amenities such as Griffith Park, the Botanic Gardens and Na Fianna GAA club on the doorstep. The area has an abundance of national and secondary schools and Dublin City University, convenient to the Four Courts, Law Library, Beaumont Hospital and The Mater Hospital. This fantastic property will appeal to those seeking a stylish family home in a superb location.
