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.

The kitchen has polished granite worktops, integrated appliances, a pull-out larder cupboard and built-in bench seating. There is also a separate sun room with great views of the garden, while a utility room houses the washing machine, dryer, dishwasher and fridge.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, with the main bedroom having an ensuite. The attic has been converted, giving an additional bedroom, as well as a large space that the current owners use as a cinema room.

Outside, the front garden is gravelled, providing off-street parking, bordered by flower beds and box hedging. The walled back garden has a large lawn area surrounded by wide beds, full of mature shrubs, trees and flowering plants.

There is a patio providing an area for seating, next to a small pond. A detached garage also provides the opportunity for an additional family space such as a gym or games room.

This home is just a 40 minute walk from St Stephen’s Green, while bus routes and Milltown Luas stop nearby also provide easy access to the city centre. The shops and restaurants of Ranelagh are also close by. Click through our gallery for the full tour of this house, which is on sale through Sherry Fitzgerald.
