Located between Gonzaga College at the Cowper LUAS line, this large Edwardian home is on the market for €1,899,500. Leafy and quiet, Park Drive is just a short walk to Ranelagh village, and this imposing home, named Lauriston and built by William Pickering in 1907, is brimming with period features and bright interiors.

Split over three floors, an ornate glass porch leads you to the main reception hall, airily lit by the round turret at the front, it has its own fireplace and magnificent staircase. Off this hallway are a well-proportioned dining room and drawing room, as well as the large kitchen and breakfast room, and a small washroom. To the side is covered garage, with its own entryway into the house and a bright and sunny family room to the rear, with doors opening onto the back garden.

The kitchen, painted in a happy yellow and including an Aga, leads into a cosy breakfast corner that also opens onto the rear garden through double doors. To the side is another bathroom and the back door.

Upstairs are the first three of five bedrooms, along with two spacious bathrooms, one a shower room with adjacent WC and the other flowing into the turret on the first floor. The master bedroom, located next to this large bathroom, also has access to a wisteria-clad, verandah-style balcony that’s tucked into the front of the house.

On the top floor are the final two bedrooms and another large bathroom, as well as a storage room that could easily be converted into a sixth bedroom.

Outside, a railed garden, off-street parking and access to the garage are available from the front, while to the rear is a large garden, quiet and backing directly onto the leafy grounds of Gonzaga College.

The level of craftsmanship and maintenance of this house is exceptional, with original stain-glass windows, ornate cornicing, and hand-carved woodwork evident throughout.
