    Description

    Nestled away on one of the city centre’s most prestigious roads lies this truly exceptional, newly refurbished period residence, extending to c.190sqm/2,045sqft of beautifully proportioned, light-filled accommodation with high ceilings and many original features intact. This is a very stylish family home which has been tastefully extended and comprehensively refurbished with great taste and sensitivity and where the high-end finish is evident throughout.
    Harcourt Terrace enjoys a premier address with a mature leafy setting along the banks of the Grand Canal, adjacent to Earlsfort Terrace, Leeson Street Bridge and Fitzwilliam Square and a short stroll to St Stephen’s Green – there are few better locations!
    Once over the threshold you are greeted by a large yet welcoming entrance hall with French oak flooring and original ceiling cornicing and architrave intact. It has a generous cloakroom and a beautifully appointed wetroom finished in porcelain tiling. Into the right and to the front of the house lies a very fine reception room with large bay window and a feature Victorian cast iron fireplace. The second reception room is used as a formal diningroom with original cast iron fireplace and a set of French doors leading out to the kitchen. To the rear of the house lies a magnificent, open plan, living/kitchen/diningroom with a wall of glazing and French doors opening onto the rear garden. It is home to a stylish Nolan kitchen with matching island unit, quartz counter tops and French oak flooring. Adjacent lies a well equipped utility room with fitted units and a ceiling pulley.
    Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, two ensuite and the main bathroom. The master bedroom enjoys a large bay window, an open fire, a stunning ensuite shower room and a dressing room. Up on top is a clever converted attic with four sash windows and eaves storage which would make an ideal study/office or den.
    Outside there are fine lawned gardens to front and rear providing privacy and seclusion. The rear garden has an easterly aspect with pedestrian access and has a slate patio area that lends to al fresco dining.
    With its prime city centre location, the area is home to high street shopping and a vast array of top restaurants, theatres, galleries and garden squares. There are excellent local schools including Loreto on the Green, Catholic University and the C.B.S. while public transport facilities abound with all major bus routes and the green Luas line closeby.
