This Victorian Rathmines home with sleek extension is on the market for €3.1 million

The new buyers of this beautiful period home will have the added bonus of being able to count Brian O’Driscoll and Amy Huberman as neighbours.

Palmerston road is well known as one of Dublin’s particularly beautiful residential streets. Wide, long, and leafy, its large Victorian homes only add to its grandeur, while it’s also close to both Rathmines and Ranelagh and their many shops and restaurants.

Number 37 has recently come onto the market, a four-bed home with a rear extension that combines period details with modern comforts.

The entrance level, comprising of the hallway, drawing room and dining room, shows off some of the home’s elegant period features, including decorative cornicing and marble fireplaces, as well as exceptionally high ceilings. These rooms have been digitally staged, as the house is currently empty.

On the garden level are the most functional rooms of the house, with a cosy living room, as well as the large open-plan kitchen, breakfast room and family room, a space where the whole family would spend plenty of time. 

Sleek finishes throughout this space create a clean look, while a skylight and bifolding doors that open out to a rear patio ensure it is bright throughout the day.

Upstairs, the bedrooms also display the character of the original home. The main bedroom features built-in wardrobes and an ensuite, while the remaining rooms are all well-sized.

The walled south-west facing back garden has a large sandstone patio area. An artificial lawn will be easy to maintain, and is bordered by shrubs. To the front, there is a driveway for off-street parking.

As well as its proximity to Rathmines and Ranelagh, this home is also just a five minute walk to Cowper Luas stop, providing easy access to the city centre.

You might even spot Brian O’Driscoll and Amy Huberman from time to time, as they live just down the road. Click through our gallery for the full tour of this house.
