DNG is very pleased to introduce 183 Rathmines Road Upper, formerly 8 Fitzwilliam Terrace, to the open market - a very charming and attractive Edwardian five-bedroom period property with a lovely private sunny West facing rear garden. Superbly located on Rathmines Road Upper, one of Dublin 6s most sought-after residential roads.
Beyond the distinctive red brick façade lies a warm and inviting home, which has been lovingly maintained and upgraded over the years and a happy home for 50 years to the current owners. High ceilings, generous room proportions, elegant reception rooms and well-proportioned bedrooms are further complemented by the private West facing garden with vehicular access. Number 183 has been extended with flair and taste resulting in an exceptional interior rich in period detail, creating a warm inviting and welcoming family home.
Built in c. 1905, the bay windows to the front of this handsome family home flood the reception rooms with natural light, perfect for entertaining yet cosy for everyday living. A wonderful kitchen/living room, which features a separate study, connects to an adjoining family room which overlooks the rear garden. Upstairs there is a spacious landing with five well-proportioned bedrooms, two ensuites and a utility room / shower room.
Externally there are beautiful and fully matured gardens front and back with, in particular, a very secluded and private back garden, which has a sunny West facing orientation and includes a large mature magnolia tree. Ample and appropriate storage is available in an outside block built shed as well as an electronic roller shutter offering secure off-street parking.
