This five-bed Edwardian house sits on the sought-after Zion Road, and its large conservatory looks out onto the lush and tranquil back garden.

Sitting amongst a beautiful row of Edwardian homes, 28 Zion Road is a large period house in a particularly sought-after location next to the High School and just a short walk from the centre of Rathgar.

Its many period features have been well-preserved, including decorative cornicing, stained-glass windows, mantelpieces, and its entrance porch and veranda.

You enter the home through the veranda, which has granite steps, and through the stained-glass porch. The entrance hall leads to the main reception rooms, including the dining room and drawing room. 

Both are large, with the dining room featuring a bay window and marble mantlepiece. The drawing room leads to the conservatory, which is over 23 square metres, particularly large for this kind of room. It is double glazed and finished to a high standard, while the lush greenery of the garden visible through its windows makes it feel like a lush oasis. 

Zion Road

A cosy family room sits beside this space, while the kitchen and utility room are on the other side of the house. The kitchen has granite worktops and a gas-fired range, while the breakfast room with built in bookshelves has French doors that lead out to the garden. Upstairs there are five bedrooms, four of which have fireplaces.

The gardens come to a total of 0.39 acres, making them particularly large for a home this close to the city centre. The rear garden has a sandstone patio that wraps around the house, as well as a large lawn area and well-considered planting including a mix of trees, flowering shrubs and spring bulbs.

The front garden has a gravel parking area for several cars, while trees provide privacy from the road. There is also a garage to the side of the house.
