Welcome to 'Beal Inse', 29 Rathgar Road, a beautiful semi-detached Victorian home, located in the heart of Dublin 6, close to Rathgar village and Rathmines town centre. An attractive and handsome residence superbly positioned on the sunny westerly side of this popular road, with a low maintenance front garden leading to the imposing flight of granite steps. Beyond the hall door the well-appointed accommodation is laid out over three levels and is rich in period detail and has many of its original features including high ceilings, ornate cornicing and original fireplaces throughout.
Currently extending to 259sq.m / 2,788 sq. ft (approx.) the property offers a superb mix of accommodation comprising: at hall level, a gracious entrance hall and two beautifully elegant interconnecting reception rooms, resplendent in period features with a bathroom located on the hall return. Stairs lead to the garden level, which has its own entrance down granite steps from the front and comprises a guest w.c., spacious hallway, interconnecting kitchen/dining room and a welcoming family room, enjoying pleasing views over the mature, west-facing rear garden. On the first floor are three generous double bedrooms, a single bedroom, with a family shower room on the second-floor return.
The gardens both front and rear are a real feature of this wonderful home. Set well back from the road, with a large driveway offering excellent off-street parking, number 29 is further enhanced by a south-westerly facing, mature rear garden with gated side access.
The location of the property is second to none in terms of convenience - just a gentle stroll away from Rathgar and Ranelagh villages, with Rathmines town centre nearby. It is also within easy reach of local junior and senior schools, specialist shops, restaurants and fine delicatessens. This fine property is also within 2.5 miles approx. of St. Stephen's Green and many of Dublin's principal places of business.
A very happy home to the current owners for the last 30 years or so, 29 Rathgar Road offers a wonderful opportunity for a range of purchasers - viewing comes highly recommended!
