The garden benefits from outdoor lighting carefully placed to bring the outdoors to life after dark. There are two tumbled limestone cobble patio areas offering excellent scope for outdoor entertaining and dining.

Edenvale Road is an attractive tree lined road of well-appointed red brick family homes tucked away in the heart of Ranelagh. Situated just over 2 miles (approx.) from St. Stephen's Green in this well established and mature residential location, this fine property enjoys an almost unparalleled sense of convenience with Ranelagh and Rathmines on its doorstep. As well as being surrounded by a wealth of amenities, to include local shopping at Dunville Avenue, some of Dublin's premier schools are within walking distance. It is also just a gentle stroll to the Beechwood and Cowper Luas stops, each less than five minutes walk away. This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a truly unique refurbished period family home on what is widely regarded as one of Ranelagh’s premier roads.
