We are delighted to present this stunning property to the market - a perfect example of an exceptionally well cared for and tastefully enhanced period residence which has been meticulously upgraded to exacting standards. Literally a new house in an old shell, No 26 was completely upgraded in recent years and boasts a sun trap south facing garden to the rear, generous parking and a garage to the rear. Seamlessly blending the old with the new the property boasts original and reclaimed items combined with the finest quality materials. High Ceilings with ornate coving create a sense of space and elegance and the attention to detail ensures it really is a home of distinction on one of Dublin 6's premier roads.
From the moment you step through the inviting front door into the elegant entrance hallway, one cannot but be impressed. There are three stunning well-proportioned reception rooms found on this level. To the right there are two large inter-connecting reception rooms with high ceilings, with ornate coving and cornicing, but the gem on this level is the formal drawing room spanning the full length of the house to the left of the property. All reception rooms on the hall level have wide plank wooden floors and period open fireplaces. Perhaps the biggest transformation however is the contemporary return that has been added to the rear of the house which gives a floating affect over the garden and patio area. A glass walled staircase brings you down to a stunning large open plan modern kitchen/dining/living room with floor to ceiling sliding doors opening up onto a sunny patio. From the basement level door is a hall with a generous sized bathroom and utility space and bedroom 4 (would make an ideal room for a nanny or indeed a home office) Moving up, on the first return there is a state of the art bathroom, with frosted glass wall. .At first floor level there are three bedrooms, and a spacious family bathroom with bath. Two of the bedrooms have period fireplaces and the master bedroom also benefits from an en-suite. On the second return, there is an open space with vast window. This space has been fitted out as a walk in wardrobe and reading nook with a picture frame window overlooking the garden.
