Stylish family home on the market for €1.75m
2 Stirling Park, Orwell Road, Rathgar, Dublin 14
Five-bedroom remodelled detached house
From the outside picture this home at 2 Stirling Park, in Rathgar, Dublin 14, appears relatively modest but inside the combination of modern architectural design, roof lights and open-plan designs, create a light-filled home with an inspirational sense of spaciousness.
The detached contemporary home was extended and totally refurbished in 2003 by Ross Cahill O'Brien Architect who transformed the house and complemented the designs with state of the art fittings throughout.
Its 428sqm (4,607 sq ft) of accommodation includes five bedrooms as well as three reception rooms in addition to the kitchen/breakfast room and family room with the latter at the heart of the house.
A stunning vaulted entrance hall greets the visitor and from it a modern, translucent glass and steel staircase leads upwards to the first floor and downwards to garden-level accommodation.
Also at entrance level are the three reception rooms including the drawing room, living room and TV room with timber panelled walls, windows – two of which overlook the garden – as well as glazed doors which connect each of them. The TV room also has French doors to the garden and patio thus facilitating garden parties or guests seeking an after dinner smoke.
The kitchen/break- fast/family room also has French doors to the garden, and eight roof lights which highlight the curved ceiling. Its fittings include an American style fridge/freezer, stainless steel seven-ring stove, double oven and a large breakfast island.
Its work space is supplemented by a laundry/utility room.
At the lower garden level is the master bedroom suite with two dressing rooms, a luxurious bathroom and a study.
Upstairs at first-floor level, the other four bedrooms include two en suites.
One of these also has a dressing room as well as a bathroom with both an oval bath and stand-in shower. Three of them also have doors which open onto to either a patio or the garden.
The master bathroom at this level is fitted with twin wash hand basins, bidet, large shower house and double jacuzzi bath.
To the front the garden is set in lawn with mature trees while a gravelled parking area provides parking for several cars.
To the rear the walled garden has an extensive lawn bordered by mature trees and a large patio sheltered for "al fresco" dining.
It has a C3 BER energy rating.
Tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac just off Orwell Road, in Dublin 14, it is south of the River Dodder, close to Milltown Golf Club and Mount Carmel Hospital. It is also convenient to Rathgar Village, Nutgrove and Dundrum shopping centres.
The Luas stop at Windy Arbour connects the area to the city centre.
