Top let: grand designs on the property market
Published 18/11/2016 | 02:30
On Nutley Park, which is adjacent both to the RTE campus and St Vincent’s hospital in a cul-de-sac, Number 37, a five-bedroom residence, is being let unfurnished from this month.
Although these houses were built in the middle of the last century, this one has been refurbished to very modern standards, starting from the gate.
A gravel driveway, with room for three or four vehicles at least, leads to the pebble-dash cream façade.
There are bay windows upstairs and down, with plenty of shrubbery and some trees in the garden. A smart, black front door in a portico leads to the entrance hall/lobby, which has a study off it to the left.
A living/dining room is on the other side of this double-fronted home, with polished wooden floors, large glass doors, picture rails and marble fireplaces.
This used to be two rooms — built at a time when the open-plan living most of us prefer now was not to taste. Today, there is no divider so the light from the double French doors in the dining room flood the entire space.There is a bathroom and ‘den’ off the kitchen at this level too. The kitchen itself is modern, finished in oak, with a stone-topped island breakfast unit and plenty of storage. There is a full range of appliances fitted and double doors lead out to the garden and large paved patio area.
This has a south-westerly aspect and so much care has been given to this ‘outside room’.
There are mature trees bordering to the back, so it is not over-looked, with lawn and shrubbery accounting for the remainder of the space. There is a side gate to the front. There are four
double bedrooms and a master suite upstairs.
Other local amenities include the Merrion Shopping Centre, Elm Park Golf and Tennis Club, and UCD. There is a range of good schools locally, while the QBC and Dart are within walking distance.
