DNG is very pleased to introduce 24 Oaklands Drive to the open market - a very charming and attractive detached four-bedroom family home with lovely mature sunny gardens set on 0.2 acres (approx.). This property is well situated, in this quiet enclave in the highly desirable residential area, just off Highfield Road, in the heart of Rathgar.
Beyond the distinctive render and brick facade lies a warm and inviting home, which has been lovingly maintained over the years and a happy home for 60 years to the current owners. Generous room proportions, light filled elegant reception rooms and well-proportioned bedrooms are further complemented by two attic rooms and a private west facing garden with access to a charming laneway giving direct access to Rathgar Village. The home has been extended with flair and taste resulting in an exceptional interior rich in detail, creating a warm inviting and welcoming family home, best expressed by a family member as:
"Oaklands Drive was a wonderful home to grow up in - full of light and cosy rooms with so many outside places to explore and run around in."
There is tremendous potential to extend to the rear and/or side with the extra wide side garden (subject to planning permission). The generous landscaped gardens with an abundance of mature planting for all seasons are a real feature of this family home.
This is an unrivalled location in a mature prime Dublin 6 location, with the thriving villages of Rathgar and Rathmines at hand with their fine selection of specialty shops, delis, coffee shops and restaurants along with excellent local shopping. The area is home to many leisure amenities, gyms as well as parks. There is an enviable selection of both junior and secondary schools close by and excellent transport links with the LUAS at the neighbouring Cowper and Milltown stops. St. Stephen's Green is just 3 km away and there are several bus routes accessing the city centre and its environs.
