Stunningly elegant two storey over garden level period home, ideally situated on this attractive terrace on Pembroke Road, close to the junction with Waterloo Road and Baggot Street.
The property has been beautifully refurbished throughout offering well-appointed accommodation laid out over three floors (excluding the attic room) and encompasses the elegance and charm of old with the conveniences of new. It retains many of the original period details including ornate ceiling cornicing and sash windows with shutters which blend perfectly with a modern tastefully styled interior.
The hall level is entered through the original hall door with fanlight and provides a gracious hall which in turn leads to the interconnecting drawing room and dining room / study. On the hall floor return, there is an entrance to the garden via the rear hall which has a guest wc and generous hotpress/storage. At garden level, there is a modern well fitted kitchen which leads to a cosy living room. There is a separate entrance to the front garden and a large storeroom completes the accommodation at this level. Upstairs, a luxuriously appointed bathroom is on the return. On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms including the very generous main bedroom which spans the full width of the house and features a 'Jack & Jill' style ensuite. There is also a large attic room.
Full planning permission is also in place (Ref: 3127/19) which will consist of the change of use from a single dwelling to two dwellings, a lower ground floor dwelling and a maisonette dwelling at ground, first and second floor levels. The development will include a new two storey extension to the rear of the house at ground and lower ground floor levels, enlarged flat roof dormer to attic level, enlarged terrace to the front of the house at lower ground floor level, lower the existing front garden, relocate existing steps to lower ground floor, remove existing concrete garden steps at rear, enlarge existing sunken garden at rear and new garden steps in a new location at the rear.
The property enjoys an extremely convenient location, close to the junction of Waterloo Road and Baggot Street where local shops are within a stone's throw. A choice of recreational amenities are within a short stroll including Herbert Park, the Aviva Stadium and leisurely walks on the Grand Canal. Many of the city's principal places of business are within walking distance including Merrion Square, Fitzwilliam Square and St Stephens Green. There is an excellent choice of Dublin's principal schools located close by.
