In beautiful condition throughout and with attention to detail in every finish, this Victorian Rathgar home would make an excellent family home


Rathgar village is a desirable area to live, thanks to its cafés, restaurants, boutique shops as well as food stores, as well as its proximity to the city centre, and several parks, making it ideal for families. Clarendon is situated on Terenure Road close to the village centre.

It is an impressive home from the moment you approach it, with a stone staircase leading up to the front door, which is complete with columns and a fan light, typical of similar period homes. The front garden provides ample space to park cars, with large gravelled areas. These are bordered by mature laurel hedging, box planting and magnolia trees which flower beautifully in the spring.

Inside, the house continues to make an impression. New oak flooring has been laid throughout, creating a modern, clean, and cohesive feel that continues through the entire space. High ceilings and large windows ensure each room feels bright and airy.

With three storeys, there is also a generosity to the house, meaning there is plenty of space for a family to spread out and enjoy their own activities. On the main level, the drawing room and kitchen/dining room are particularly special rooms with ceilings over 11 feet high, detailed cornicing and marble mantlepieces, while dual aspect windows look out to both the front and rear gardens, and ensure light at all times of the day.

There are multiple living rooms, four bathrooms and six bedrooms, so this house will easily accommodate a growing family. The large rear garden is also perfect for everyone from young children to adults who want to barbecue on summer evenings.

Located close to several Luas stops, as well as schools including Alexandra College, St. Mary’s College, Rathgar Junior, Rathgar National, Zion College and High School, ensures this home is perfectly positioned for busy families. Bus routes also provide easy access to the city centre, which is just 2.5 miles away. Clarendon is on the market for €3.25 million.
