This Rathgar home with a stylish garden studio is on the market for €1.85 million
A Victorian end-of-terrace, it has undergone a recent renovation to make it an energy-efficient and stylish home.
Sitting conveniently between Rathgar and Rathmines villages, 18 Garville Road is an end-of-terrace Victorian home with four bedrooms. Thanks to a recent renovation, it feels clean and modern inside, while still retaining some hallmarks of its history. Features such as underfloor heating help make it an energy-efficient home.
You enter the home up stone steps and through the ornately decorated original front door, complete with fanlight. The entrance hallway has an oak floor, and a painted exposed brick wall, one of several in the property that have been given this treatment.
To the left of this space are the interconnected living and dining rooms, currently used by the owners as one large living space. They would have originally been two rooms – the dividing doors have been removed to open up the space, which has a sash window with bespoke shutters, a panelled wall and two gas insert fires.
To the back of the house, the kitchen and living area sits in a modern extension. Large windows to the side make a feature of the granite garden wall, while large sliding doors and tiles that continue out to the patio ensure that the indoor and outdoor spaces flow.
A large single slab stone island creates a focal point for the space, while there are also concealed utility and cloak rooms just off this space.
Upstairs, the main bedroom is the full width of the house, with two sash windows letting in plenty of light, while a former fireplace has been turned into a feature, adding texture to the room. It also has an ensuite bathroom.
Also on this level is a family bathroom and the three remaining bedrooms.
Outside, in the walled back garden the patio area leads to a raised lawn. A wall conceals the garden room, which sits to the back. Architecturally-designed, it is a flexible space, suitable for an office, gym, or a number of other uses.
It totals 25 square metres, with panelled walls, attic storage, triple glazed windows and a sliding door. It has been thermally wrapped, making it easy to heat throughout the year.
