This Edwardian home has a converted attic, a detached garage and a large carefully tended garden to the rear.

Just a short walk from the popular village of Rathgar, 65 Highfield road is a large five-bed home with ample space for family life. Its period features add charm, while it has been well-maintained over the years, and modern touches added.

The double hall door with stained glass panels opens up to the entrance hallway, which has high ceilings and a tiled floor, as well as period details including decorative cornicing, and both a picture and dado rail.

This leads to the interconnected drawing room and dining room on the right. These spaces also retain their period features, and a large bay window overlooks the front garden, ensuring it is a bright space. The dining room has French doors with working shutters, that lead to the sunroom.

On the left of the main hallway is the living room, also overlooking the front garden. It has a box bay window and panelled walls, while a stove adds cosiness in the colder months.
