23 Oaklands Drive, Rathgar,

  • Ber



    Nestled away in a quiet mature cul de sac off Highfield Road is this most impressive four bed semi-detached family home in need of complete refurbishment.
    This very fine residence offers exceptionally bright, well proportioned accommodation which is presented in its original condition and lends to extension and development like many of the neighbours before.
    The property boasts plenty of off-street parking to front with the bonus of a garage, generous side access and a stunning rear garden with a south-westerly aspect which extends to c. 82ft/ 25m.
    Once over the threshold you are greeted by a large airy entrance hall with a cloakroom that could easily covert to a downstairs wc while there is excellent storage under the stairs. Into the left are two very fine interconnecting reception rooms with original wood flooring, tiled fireplaces and a set of French doors leading out to the rear garden. To the rear of the house lies a breakfastroom with tiled fireplace and has the kitchen adjacent – ideal to knock through and create a large kitchen/diningroom. A rear hall leading to the garage has exceptional storage and even retains the original servant bells.
    Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, three with tiled fireplaces, and a large newly fitted bathroom designed for an older person.
    A quiet serene cul de sac setting in a mature prime Dublin 6 location adjacent to both of the thriving villages of Rathgar and Rathmines which are home to choice delis, coffee houses and restaurants along with excellent local shopping. The area is also home to many leisure centres and gyms and numerous parks. Many of south Dublin’s finest schools are also within the locality including Alexandra College, St Marys, Stratford College, St Louis, Presentation, Rathgar Junior and High School to name but a few.
    There are also excellent transport links where the Luas Green line can be caught on neighbouring Cowper and Milltown stops while there are numerous prime bus routes also accessing the city centre and its environs.
