An immaculate, contemporary extended home, in one of the area’s finest neighborhoods, a short stroll from Terenure village and within quick and easy reach of the city center. A hidden gem, this stunning home also boasts a most private, sun-trap garden.
"No.5" is a deceptively spacious townhouse; the original design was to create a home that was low maintenance but one that did not compromise on luxury and contemporary details and it delivers on all fronts. With its charming façade and wonderful garden this home ticks all the boxes, once over the threshold you are greeted by a hall with clever storage, living room with bespoke built in bookcases and bi-fold doors through to the really wonderful open plan kitchen/dining/living space. An excellent space for entertaining as it leads out on to the garden, upstairs there are 2 bedrooms and a modern bathroom.
Larkfield was designed by Higginbotham & Stafford architects (who also designed the original Stella Cinema in Rathmines). These characterful homes in Larkfield were built in the 1930’s for ex servicemen and their families, they are characterised by long back gardens that allowed food to be grown and chickens to be kept.
Community is the biggest 'hidden' selling point. This charming spot offers a real neighbourhood feel and the green is a focal point for everyone to get together - from summer parties street festivals to Santa's grotto for the kids at Christmas.
The previous owners built the extension in 2013, they paid careful attention to the finer details, fairco windows and doors and munster joinery sliding door leading to the garden. The build quality and overall finish is excellent. Further upgrades were carried out in 2019, internally new floors were added downstairs, new carpet on the stairs and bedrooms, a bifold door to separate the front room, upgrading of kitchen and house was re-painted throughout.
In all, the most impeccable townhouse, low maintenance and designed to the highest standard throughout.
