A handsome property in Dublin 4,124 Strand Road is a detached family home on the seafront in Sandymount. 

The accommodation comprises an enclosed porch entrance, reception hall, two interconnecting reception rooms (a drawing room with double doors opens through to a dining room), family room/home office with an ensuite shower room. To the rear, there is a living room, separate kitchen and utility room with a door leading out to the side passageway. From the living room, there are sliding patio doors connecting this space out to a large patio and the extensive southwest-facing rear garden. Upstairs there are five bedrooms and two generous bathrooms.

Polished timber flooring and stained glass windows greet you in the enclosed porch which opens onto the reception hall. The drawing room is located on the left, with a bay window and original fireplace with mahogany surround marble and brass inset amongst the standout features. 

Further inside the home is the dining room, which also has its own attractive fireplace. Period features include ceiling coving and a centre rose. A sliding patio door connects this room out to the rear garden. 

The family room/home office, ensuite shower room, breakfast room, living/sun room and kitchen can be found to the front of the house. The kitchen has been fitted with a good range of shaker-style cabinets along with a one and a half bowl stainless teel sink unit, a four-ring De Dietrich electric hob with extractor over, a dishwasher, a Miele oven with Belling microwave above and an integrated fridge/freezer.

The utility room – which has been plumbed for a washing machine and vented for a dryer – is located just off the kitchen. 

All five bedrooms can be found upstairs along with a shower room and the main family bathroom. 

Outside, the property is surrounded by superb gardens and grounds, standing on approximately 0.2 acres of land which has been extended to both the side and rear. To the front, there is a landscaped walled and hedged garden with a gravel driveway providing ample off-street parking. The sale also includes a garage and gated side access, on either side of the house, leading to the rear garden.

Enjoying an enviable seafront location on Sandmount Strand, the property is privy to unobstructed views of Dublin Bay, the promenade and the Martello Tower. The rear of the property backs onto Railway Union Sports Club where there are a number of activities on offer ranging from tennis to hockey, rugby, cricket, bowls and football. 

Benefitting from one of Dublin’s most popular and convenient locations, the property is within walking distance of Sandymount Village and is well set up with any number of amenities nearby including highly-rated cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. Merrion Shopping Centre is less than a 10-minute walk away and public transport is also extremely accessible with Sydney Parade DART station just up the road. 

Dublin City Centre and the popular shopping district of Grafton Street is a short 15-minute car journey and can also be accessed by the number 2 bus, a mere 200m from the property gates. The property also benefits from being within a 15-minute drive of Dublin Airport via the Port Tunnel.

For parents, some of Dublin’s finest primary and secondary schools can be found in the area along with several creche and Montessori options locally. 

Currently on the market for €2,500,000, viewing of this most impressive, detached period residence is highly recommended and can be arranged through Lisney Sotheby’s International Realty Leeson Street. In the meantime, take a tour of this wonderful family home in our gallery below.
