Period homes can be undeniably beautiful, but they can be a lot to take on if not kept in good condition, with issues like poor insulation and outdated wiring. Renvyle, situated in the Rathmichael area of South County Dublin, manages to have all the charm of a period home, but without any of the issues an old house can have.

Built in a period style, its elegant rooms have a wonderful sense of proportion and include features such as open marble fireplaces, timber sash windows with working shutters and impressive ceiling heights of up to 3.24m.

The property is currently split between a four-bed family home and a self-contained wing with two additional bedrooms, however, if preferred, the home could easily be brought back to one complete house.

An impressive hallway greets you as you enter the front door, with a curved staircase and large marble fireplace. The living room’s high ceilings with cornicing, double doors and a tall sash window all have the feel of a distinguished period property.

The kitchen is generously sized. A large central island is the hub of this room, with an integrated sink and multiple storage options. A range cooker is also ideal for preparing family meals. French doors lead out to the garden, giving an indoor-outdoor connection that would be ideal for the summer months. There is space for a dining table at the end of this room.

The master bedroom features a walk-in wardrobe, en-suite and an impressive arched window. Most of the bedrooms are arranged on the ground floor, along a long, curved corridor, meaning they have a close connection to the garden.

The garden itself measures 0.8 acres and features an extensive lawn, bordered by mature planting and a patio area. Secure automatic gates at the front of the house provide security and privacy. At €2.95 million, Renvyle is certainly at the higher end of the market, but we’re sure it would make a pleasant family home. Click through the gallery above for the full tour.
