This large Victorian home has the benefit of a second building at the end of its long garden, complete with two bedrooms, a kitchen and living room.
Situated on Templeogue Road, Glencar is an impressive Victorian home with period details, a modern extension, and a large garden to the rear which houses additional accommodation. The door with traditional fan window greets you as you enter the house, and the entrance hall, with its high ceilings, arches and decorative cornicing, sets the tone for what is to be found in the rest of this home.
A large reception room boasts all these features, in addition to two large sash windows and a marble fireplace. This continues into the equally elegant dining room, which would be a great space for entertaining. While the decor is currently quite traditional, it would be easy for any new buyers to add their own taste to the space.
To the back of the house, there is a modern extension at garden level with the kitchen and a more casual dining space. Large sliding doors open out directly to the garden, while a skylight provides light from above. White walls and units ensure the space feels clean, and its simplicity contrasts with the older part of the house. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms.
The garden has a large patio beside the house, as well as a long lawn area lined with mature shrubs and trees. At the end of the garden sits the coach house, separated by a stone wall so it is not overlooked by the main house. It has a stone facade and its own patio area, and would be suitable for self-contained living for an older family member, or could be adapted as an office or studio space.
The house is well located, just outside of Terenure village with the popular Bushy Park just a few minutes walk away. There are also a number of schools in the area, as well as several direct bus routes to the city centre. For the full tour of this house, click through our gallery above.
