DNG are delighted to present 85 Lower Churchtown Road, this handsome red brick semi- detached home combines 1950s elegance with 21st century craftsmanship and a floor space of approx. 1,534 sq. ft/ 142.5 sq. m, laid out over two levels, with a further 173 sq.ft. / 16 sq.m. in the garage and the potential for an attic conversion (subject to p.p.).
Number 85 is approached by wrought iron gates with a gravel driveway offering off street parking for four/ five cars and side access leading to the mature private garden. Upon entering, it is quite apparent that the standard and quality of finish of this family home is exceptional. The main door opens into the porch, leading into the reception hallway with ceiling coving and a generous guest wc. There are two impressive interconnecting receptions rooms, with one enjoying views over the landscaped gardens to the rear. These rooms have high ceilings (2.8 m), ceiling coving and open fireplaces. For entertaining guests, there is a well-equipped kitchen and a light filled breakfast room with double doors leading onto the South/ East facing 64 ft. (approx.) mature garden.

(approx.) garage / workshop with double doors leading to the front.
Number 85 is situated on beautifully manicured mature gardens which have been extremely well screened from Lower Churchtown Road and neighbouring properties. The gardens provide complete privacy thanks to a selection of mature laurel hedging, silver birch trees, apple and cherry trees and shrubs. The rear garden is South /East facing with beautiful borders and a patio area located off the sitting room and breakfast room.
Lower Churchtown Road has an enviable range of facilities at hand; excellent shopping at Rathgar, Churchtown and Dundrum, with a selection of restaurants, coffee shops and specialty shops. Milltown Golf Club is literally just across the road with the Castle Golf Club nearby, as well as a selection of walks and leisure facilities at nearby Orwell, Dartry and Bushy Parks. The M50 is easily accessible while the nearby LUAS brings you into Stephens Green in 12 minutes.
