This is undoubtedly one of the most exciting and inspirational refurbished Victorian homes in Dublin. Extending to 602 sqm / 6,480 sq.ft. approx. (including pool area) this is a truly unique residence. 10 Sydenham Road is the epitome of elegant and contemporary living, having been refurbished, extended and remodelled to exacting standards in 2008 and renovated further in 2017/2018. Sydenham Road is recognised as one of the most sought after and prestigious roads in Dundrum, located just off Taney Road within a few moments stroll of Balally and Dundrum Luas and only 20 minutes from St Stephens Green.
Brentwood is tucked away in a secluded, secure setting surrounded by landscaped gardens. The hidden charm to this exceptional home is the juxtaposition of the mature Victorian exterior and the ultra-modern and luxurious interior. This is a stunning Victorian home with a contemporary 21st Century feel, a home of great style and character with cutting edge technology. The brief was to provide secure generous and flexible accommodation that can be adapted to suit changing family needs.
The architecture is breath-taking with a stunning reception hall, formal drawing room, dining room and family room/library creating a real wow factor.
Brentwood enjoys exceptional reception and recreational rooms including a Home Cinema that would rival the Stella cinema and an Indoor Swimming pool and Gym. A terrific open plan living/dining/ kitchen with triple height ceiling is at the heart of the home opening out onto the sheltered gardens. At first floor level, the impressive bedroom one with luxurious bathroom is a haven of peace complimented by 5 further well-proportioned bedrooms. A Rotunda Tower Reception room has terrific panoramic views over the city and to the Dublin Mountains. Bathrooms throughout the house are luxurious with state of the art fittings.
The location is superb - Dundrum is just a gentle stroll away it is within easy reach of the much sought after local junior, senior schools and universities, Dundrum Town centre, local shops, restaurants and local parks.
