Gallagher Quigley are excited to bring ‘Elsinore‘ to the market. A substantial detached family home set back from the Howth Road in Clontarf, on a splendid south west facing site of approx. 1/25 of an acre. A subtle hint of what’s in store for the fortunate new owner can be gleaned from the pretty pink facade. Radiating with an abundance of natural Light throughout, a delightful colour palette and endless amounts of character and charm, this is a very special home offering the ultimate in convenience living. Originally a 1920’s home, "154" was transformed by the present owners only 12 years ago with great flair, taste and style. The seamless enhancement of its original period charm coupled with the skilfully designed extension across the rear is a genuine triumph creating the focal point from which this home casts its spell over all who visit. "Elsinore" is as endearing a home as anyone could wish for and must be viewed to be fully appreciated. At c247.4 sq m or 2662 sq ft, this is a large house with a significant amount of its floor area here, on the ground floor. Comprising a fine reception hall leading to an open plan kitchen/dining/living space, it features a double height A-shaped ceiling and large skylights on both sides flooding the large space with natural light. Expansive sliding doors lead to the west facing rear garden. The kitchen is a home chef's dream with bespoke curved hand painted cabinets and circular island designed by Hannaways of Co.Down. Integrated appliances, corian worktops with integrated sinks and polished floors that will all stand the test of time such is the sheer quality and style. A decent sized utility room with a cottage style stable door is plumbed and fitted appropriately. Off the kitchen is a large multipurpose room, currently used as a home office and studio, also with high ceilings and multiple skylights originally perceived as a granny flat. It has its own shower room, wc and whb. Also off the reception hall are two large reception rooms, a shower room and a bedroom. The large reception rooms both have bay windows, ornate plasterwork and original ornate fireplaces. Journey through the house and at every turn design details will impress, such as stained glass Art Deco style doors. Upstairs offers a comfortable landing off which lies three bedrooms, including a master bedroom with an ensuite and a family bathroom. Upstairs the dormer ceilings are tapered and panelled, creating a French styled ambience with a unique warmth of character. A west facing private back Garden complements this home beautifully. Well-tended gardens with neat borders, raised planters and bespoke features flow from inside to outdoors with an attractive variety of colourful plants, trees and shrubs. An original greenhouse adds rustic charm while a gazebo, a sunken BBQ, a large sandstone patio area and a meandering pathway are enveloped by peace, quiet and privacy. Perfectly convenient beside an array of shops, a Dart station and multiple bus routes, endless amenities are within easy reach. Clontarfs’ popularity is renowned and well deserved. Historical St Anne’s Park is just a stroll away and the seafront promenade with its extended cycle path just a short cycle away. A lot to appreciate when the city centre is within 3km! Elsinore is available by appointment with Gallagher Quigley at 01-8183000 (Negotiators Conor Gallagher & Deirdre Kervick).
