If you're on the lookout for a luxurious property in Dublin 4, this period house in Donnybrook could be yours for a whopping €1.9 million
Located at 82 Marlborough Road, this house in Donnybrook is one of the area's finest period residences. According to estate agents at Sherry Fitzgerald, the property has been extensively renovated and extended in recent years, with exceptional flair and taste.
Its light-filled accommodation spans approximately 3,000 square feet or 279 square metres, including five bedrooms and five bathrooms. What's more, as it's situated on the south side of Marlborough Road, the property enjoys one of Dublin’s most convenient locations.
Just a short stroll away, you'll find many restaurants, cafes and boutiques in the villages of Donnybrook and Ranelagh. Not only that, but the property is also in close proximity to local schools, as well as many of the city’s corporate headquarters in Ballsbridge, Stephen’s Green and the Docklands.
Returning to number 82, the semi-detached house is nestled behind electronic security gates. The well-proportioned front garden also boasts secure, private car parking.
Climbing the external steps to the front door, you will notice a period-style fan window overhead. This then leads to a bright entrance hallway.
From there, turn right into a spacious reception room which is filled with natural light. The room includes many of its original period features, including sash windows with working shutters, as well as a centre ceiling rose and cornicing. Current owners have blended these period details with modern art and furniture.
Through an open archway, to the rear of the home, there is a dining area with open fireplace. While the current owners have a six-seating dining table, there is enough space for additional furniture if needed.
Elsewhere, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Not only does it have a large centre island (which doubles as a breakfast bar), but it also has a double oven, built-in wine rack and plenty of storage units. This open-plan kitchen merges with a second living area and additional dining space, allowing all the family to come together in the one room.
Upstairs, there are five bedrooms and five bathrooms, with notable features including ceiling spotlights, timber floors and wardrobes.
Meanwhile, outside to the rear of the property, there is an exquisitely landscaped rear garden. In addition to its many plants and shrubs, there is a patio area for al fresco dining and a charming footbridge.
This house in Donnybrook is on the market with Sherry Fitzgerald for €1,950,000.
