This large executive family home comes to the letting market next week. Located on Dublin’s fashionable Ailesbury Road, the rent which is being sought reflects, in part, its positioning.  It puts it in the heart of the embassy belt, so invariably, it could have a diplomatic tenant.

The detached property has four large bedrooms (two of which are ensuite), two additional bathrooms and a huge, beautifully-maintained garden. It

measures 3,131 sq ft in interior floor space. Although these houses were built some decades ago, No72 has been renovated and upgraded, so it’s in great condition. A family will be free to kit it out as they see fit as it comes to market unfurnished.

The tiled entrance porch leads into the hall, which features some nice stained glass on the doors, coving and solid wood floors.

There are five reception rooms on the ground floor in addition to the kitchen/breakfast room, which is fully fitted with appliances and has a utility room off it.

The formal drawing room has a sandstone fireplace with a gas inset fire and bay window. The dining room, likewise, and this leads into a conservatory-style sunroom (although it has a pitched roof with recessed lighting rather than glass). This, in turn, leads out to the back garden. Additional rooms include a study and a family room. The back garden is a key selling point, measuring around 100ft by 60ft, which you simply don’t see these days in newer houses, especially not in Dublin. 

It is walled and in lawn, with plenty of flowerbeds, plants, mature trees and a paved patio for al fresco dining. There is a brick shed for additional storage. 

The front garden is also large, given the house is set back from the road, and is, again, in lawn and shrubbery with a paved driveway offering parking for a number of vehicles. The location gives the tenants walking access to Donnybrook, Ballsbridge, the RDS and some of Dublin’s top schools are nearby, including St Michael’s and Gonzaga. 

UCD and Trinity College are the nearest universities, both within a couple of kilometres. The house is triangulated between Bective Rangers Football Club, Old Belvedere and the RTE campus.

LEASE:  One year
