** MEWS POTENTIAL TO REAR (S.P.P.), ON ESTABLISHED MEWS LANEWAY SPIRE VIEW LANE **
Finnegan Menton are delighted to bring 59 Grosvenor Road to the market, a truly impressive Gothic style Victorian residence constructed in the 19th century and designed by the architect Alfred Gresham Jones (the designer of the French Embassy, Ailesbury Road, The Davenport Hotel and Wesley College).
Behind the elegant red brick facade of this stunning bay-windowed 3 storey over garden home, lies approx. 304 sq. m. of well-proportioned and versatile accommodation, with living spaces that are bathed in natural light, ensuring a warm and welcoming atmosphere is felt throughout. Accessed at hall level via a flight of granite steps, the sense of space and light, as well as the impeccable finish and immaculate nature of this home, are immediately evident. Decorated, designed, and maintained with an abundance of good taste, it has been refurbished and finished to a very high specification with a keen eye for detail. No. 59 retains many original fine ornate period features, which fit seamlessly with contemporary design and all the conveniences of modern living, resulting in an exquisitely presented period property of immense character, perfectly configured to accommodate modern family life. No. 59 is sure to please even the most discerning of buyers.
The accommodation comprises two stunning interconnecting reception rooms of grand proportions off the main hall. At garden level, a superb kitchen with bespoke units and a large granite island leads into an open plan family room opening into the rear garden. An additional, office/study, utility room and guest w.c. complete this wonderful family space. Upstairs there are 5 large bedrooms laid out over two floors with the master suite benefiting from a full bathroom en-suite and dressing room. Outside, a private, landscaped south-east facing rear garden, is laid out in artificial grass and mature shrubs, and benefits from a large sandstone patio that provides an ideal setting for ‘al fresco’ dining, where the tranquil nature of this leafy neighbourhood can really be appreciated. A large garage (L8.6m x W.6.8m) is located at the bottom of the garden and provides parking for 2 cars comfortably in addition to ample storage. This area offers obvious mews potential (subject to planning permission), with access to an established mews laneway, Spireview Lane, accessed off Rathgar Road. A beautiful, railed garden, laid out in lawn, with mature trees, shrubs and box hedging, sits to the front of the property, accessed via a granite pathway, and a discrete sunken patio offers an alternative vantage point to enjoy the mature surroundings in wonderful privacy and seclusion.
No. 59 enjoys an enviable location, tucked away from the hustle and bustle while still enjoying every conceivable amenity within close proximity. The location is second to none in terms of convenience, nestled between the villages of Rathgar and Rathmines, with excellent local shopping, a choice of fine restaurants as well as a superb selection of local junior and senior schools within an easy walk. The city centre and many of Dublin’s principal places of business are within easy commuting distance.
All in all, this is undoubtedly a genuinely special, truly stylish, and unique family home situated in a highly desirable location.
