Set behind the original wrought iron railings and gate, Number 2 Hollybank Avenue Lower is a most welcoming early Edwardian period home, ideally tucked away in this mature and sought- after residential enclave, located just off Sandford Road. This tastefully presented red brick, bay windowed property has been upgraded and enhanced from the original footprint, resulting in the perfect fusion of period elegance with modern conveniences. The property enjoys many period features synonymous with the era, including decorative lead panelled front door, high ceilings, period coving and ornate centre roses.
Internally the accommodation extends to 120 sq.m. / 1291 sq.ft. (including the attic space) and comprises at ground floor level a drawing room with attractive bay window interlinking with a separate dining room, both displaying many original features including the ornate fireplaces, centre roses and sliding pocket doors with brass features. Off the hall, there is a guest w.c. and a fully equipped kitchen with dining space which overlooks the glorious west facing rear garden. Upstairs there are two spacious double bedrooms and a single bedroom, the main bedroom spans the width of the property and all recently fitted with excellent wardrobe space from master joiners Moore O'Gorman. The light filled family bathroom completes the accommodation at this level. The property is further enhanced by its attic conversion, currently in use as a valuable work from home office /study. The private rear garden is a real feature of this stunning home, and its enviable orientation, East to the front and West to the rear ensures all day natural sunlight from sunrise to sunset. The property holds approved planning permission to further extend the floor plate with a double height extension to rear which would provide an additional 25sq.m of additional accommodation.
The location of this superb residence is ideal. It is within a short stroll of the shops, bars and restaurants of both Ranelagh and Donnybrook Villages not to mention being a short distance from the city centre. The local Luas at Ranelagh is a short stroll, and the bus stop to the city centre is immediately as you exit the cul-de-sac on Sandford Road. It benefits from all of the many conveniences whilst being removed from the hustle and bustle of village life.
