Mullery O'Gara are proud to present Sleepy Hollow to the market, a stunning and unique converted coach house of immense style and character enjoying a tranquil and most private setting nestled away on the edge of Palmerston Park, one of Irelands premier addresses.

This beautifully renovated redbrick started as coach house but has had modern makeover with superb attention to detail throughout. This property benefits from a great flow to the downstairs layout, a perfect home for entertaining.

Internally, the rooms are exceptionally well proportioned and flooded with natural light throughout. From the moment you cross the threshold one cannot be but impressed by the double height ceiling and bespoke curving staircase in the reception hall. To the left of which sits an spacious yet cosy timber-floored dining room, with views over the front garden and French windows to the side garden, with its granite walls characteristic of the area. Internal bevelled glass doors connect to the lounge, which has its own French windows to the side garden and a gas fire set in a rather grand, grey and white marble fire surround. This room connects the inside with out perfectly, a lovely spot for morning coffee or entertaining.

The ground floor also offers an elegant open plan kitchen - dining room, providing a sophisticated entertainment space complete with French doors opening onto a suntrap courtyard. A pantry off the kitchen provides excellent extra storage. A family bathroom and office space neatly tucked away in the reception hallway completes the picture on the ground floor.

Upstairs is equally as impressive boasting three double bedrooms, the master bedroom is an impressive space and incorporates a beautifully appointed en-suite bathroom as well as a luxury walk in wardrobe. There are a further two spacious bedrooms along with the main bathroom on this level.

Externally the property is surrounded by well planted, mature gardens with a high redbrick wall, breached by electric gates for car access and a separate one for pedestrian access providing privacy from Palmerston Road. A suntrap patio area is surrounded by an abundance of mature planting as is a very charming courtyard off the kitchen.

The location is second to none - an area with a real sense of community, within walking distance of two Luas stops at Beechwood and Cowper. There is an extensive choice of amenities including excellent local shopping including independent, artisan food shops, educational and recreational facilities at Ranelagh and Rathmines. Some of Dublin's best schools are within easy reach including Gonzaga and Muckross Colleges, Alexandra College and St Mary's College. Excellent national schools include Kildare Place, Scoil Bhride, Ranelagh Multi-Denominational and Sandford National schools. The city centre is approximately 2 miles from the property. Palmerston Park is a wonderful local amenity and the sports facilities of Milltown Golf club, David Lloyd Fitness, and Brookfield Tennis club to name just a few are within very easy reach.

Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the setting and standard of finish on offer.
