Pretty as a picture in a quiet, mature, leafy setting lies No. 10 Purser Gardens, overlooking a landmark Gothic style church in an idyllic yet highly convenient location between the villages of Rathmines and Ranelagh with every conceivable amenity within a short stroll.
This very stylish and beautifully appointed two storey over garden level Georgian style residence is just 30 years old and yet enjoys all the attributes of the Georgian period including classical proportions with wonderful floor to ceiling height and large double glazed sash windows in every room.
Once over the threshold you are greeted by an elegant, light-filled entrance hall with a stained glass fan light and a large storage closet under the stairs. Into the left lies a cosy family room which overlooks the pretty church to front. An opening leads through to an impressive reception room which spans the full width of the house with an open marble fireplace and has two sash windows overlooking the rear garden. Completing the hall level is a generous study which offers a highly versatile usage.
The Garden level has its own separate entrance which leads through to an entrance lobby with utility room under the front steps. A beautifully appointed kitchen lies to the front finished in a dark wood stain with contrasting cream upper units and houses a range of high-end integrated appliances. An inviting diningroom lies adjacent with an ornate cast iron open fire and a set of French doors leading out to the rear patio and garden. Bedroom 4 and a stylish shower room along with a large cloakroom complete the garden level.
Up on first floor there are three double bedrooms and a beautifully finished family bathroom. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room while bedroom 3 has fitted bunk beds - all bedrooms have fitted wardrobes. The landing provides access to attic storage along with a french door leading out onto a wonderful roof terrace. The rear garden enjoys the perfect southerly aspect and is designed for easy maintenance, planted with an abundance of rich, mature shrubbery and trees and has a secluded sandstone patio area ideal for al fresco dining. There is a mature well planted front garden with off-street parking.
The immediate area is home to excellent local shopping, fashionable eateries, Swan Leisure Centre and the green Luas line. Many of south Dublin’s top schools are also within the vicinity including Sandford Park, Gonzaga, High School, Alexandra College and St Marys to name but a few.
