Ramleh Park, Milltown, Dublin 6, Rent €3,950 per month
If you have ever wondered what it might be like to step into the Tardis than this house in Ramleh Park may well give you that Dr Who feeling.
On the outside, it's a fairly ordinary, double-fronted 1950s semi-d, with red brick and pebble-dash finish, bay windows and a nicely landscaped lawn. You imagine a comfortable, if slightly faded interior with a swirly patterned carpet and Belfast sink in the kitchen. Well, tighten that scarf doctor, because you're zooming straight into the future.
Re-modelled and re-designed by award-winning Odos Architects in 2012 this ultra contemporary property opens up into a highly polished granite and fully oak-lined panelled hall into a huge living space.
On the left is a study/recreation room which has remained relatively untouched, passing by the full-tiled wet room and WC and stepping toward the back of the house with its angular floor to ceiling frameless five-partitioned glass wall which opens into 50m of south facing back garden overlooking the Dodder valley.
In this enormous space is the ultra-modern long steel kitchen, with island unit, full-wall shelving, a range of integrated Siemens appliances and a dining and separate seating area in the short section of this L-shape. On the roof is a huge round skylight from which this space can be viewed from the master bedroom above it. The floor is polished concrete and wood.
There is a pull-back dividing oak wall, which can be used to separate the room into different areas, or left whole as the family requires. Off this is a storage area with utility functions.
There is a separate sitting room, almost like a director's studio, with dark walls and low lighting. An open-riser staircase leads to the four double bedrooms, the master has a roll-top bath right in the room at the end of the bed, but also an ensuite with a dividing wall between the wc and shower, and a walk-in wardrobe. There is a separate family shower room also.
There is underfloor heating throughout. Ramleh Park is in Milltown, 4km from Dundrum Town Centre and 3km from the UCD campus at Belfield. The nearest Luas stop is 2km. The property is being let, from July, unfurnished.
Lease: Minimum one year.
