Forster's Avenue, Co Dublin; Rent: €4,500 per month
Annville is a large executive home which extends to 3,000 sq ft. With four double bedrooms, it's suited for private suburban family living and its location on Foster's Avenue means it is on the way towards the N11, near Deerpark and Stillorgan.
The well known Mount Anville girls' school is the nearest educational facility, but there are myriad others to suit in the vicinity, including the French and German schools on Roebuck Road and Our Lady's Grove primary and secondary schools, Newpark and the Teresian School.
UCD is a short walk away from Foster's Avenue and those heading into town will be there in 20 minutes on the QBC.
The owner is offering this home furnished, in full or part, or unfurnished if preferred. For a year's lease, a corporate family may well want to have their own comforts around them, especially if coming from abroad, so it's nice to have a choice.
The accommodation is a modern cream detached house with wood panelling on the front, set behind electric gates with parking for three cars on the cobbled driveway.
There is a tiled hall with cloakroom and WC off this, leading down steps to a large open-plan kitchen. This comes stocked with Miele appliances including an induction hob, electric oven and microwave and a fridge/freezer. Units are white with black counter-tops and there is a utility room from this and a dining area also.
The formal dining room is accessed via double doors and it leads into the living room. This has a gas fire and overlooks the very heavily landscaped garden.
There is a separate reception room also - a drawing room, with a wall-mounted gas fire. These are finished in a contemporary manner with polished wooden floor and clean white walls. Existing furnishings are comfortable and in neutral shades.
Upstairs are four bedrooms - the master has a corner bath in the ensuite and a separate shower. Two of the other bedrooms have ensuite facilities.
The garden will delight the green-fingered tenant. West facing, it has a large patio area with furniture, a raised lawn and a water feature. It's fairly low maintenance, however, with paved areas and mature trees on boundaries.
Lease: One year
