Carefully restored 61 Eglinton Road, Donnybrook, Dublin 4, is a double fronted, red brick, period residence with a floor area of 363sqm.
Its refurbishment was designed to blend modern luxurious facilities with classic period features, and the sale includes quality fixtures and fittings. For instance the house is equipped with smart home technology, including a video intercom system while also retaining cornicing and ceiling roses in most of the rooms.
Located close to the embassy belt on Ailesbury Road, its reception rooms are capable of catering for high class hospitality and diplomatic occasions. A relatively unusual modern feature is the family room/kitchen where there is a double height ceiling and under-floor heating. Its kitchen is bespoke in the attractive Clive Christian style and connects to the dining room and drawing room, which both enhance and also supplement the hospitality area. In the summer this can be further enhanced by opening doors to the south facing rear gardens.
All five bedrooms are en suite and the bathrooms are in the Duravit/Philippe Starck style with marble tiling and under-floor heating.
To the front of the house landscaped gardens and a spacious parking area are set behind automatic security gates. To the rear a walled landscaped garden combines a patio and lawn with herbaceous borders. A brick storage shed and double rear entrance gates and large car garage is also located to the rear with access off Eglinton Road via a private lane.
It is only minutes walk from Donnybrook Village with lots of amenities nearby, including restaurants in Donnybrook and Ballsbridge. The RDS, Aviva Stadium, Riverview and Brookfield tennis clubs as well as a selection of the city's best educational establishments, such as St Michael's College, The Teresians, Muckross Park, Gonzaga and UCD, are within walking distance.
