A truly outstanding Victorian residence superbly positioned on one of Dublin’s most prestigious and sought after residential roads. No. 25 Raglan Road is without doubt one of Dublin’s finest private homes. Internally this wonderful family home is a fine example of creative flair and taste in both architectural layout and interior design which is used to maximum effect to create a home of great warmth.
A fine example of Victorian craftsmanship; the property is approached via a flight of granite steps leading to an attractive Victorian hall door with feature fanlight over flanked by ionic columns. A welcoming reception hall with feature Yorkshire flagstone floor and a warm atmospheric palette immediately sets the tone for what is to follow in this special family home. Off the reception hall there is a fabulous hand crafted French style family kitchen complete with AGA ensuring a warm relaxed atmosphere. To the front there is a comfortable living room which adjoins the kitchen ideal for day to day family living. To the rear of the reception hall there is a generous open plan study with fabulous panelled walls and an array of bespoke built in cupboards providing ample storage and double doors overlooking the rear garden.
An elegant staircase leads to the hall floor return off which there is a lavish bathroom. On the first floor there is a magnificent reception room running the full width of the property. This room enjoys an abundance of period features to include decorative cornice work, a fine marble mantelpiece, large sliding sash windows overlooking the front of the property and imposing double doors with feature ironmongery leading to a luxurious lounge with atmospheric décor creating a comfortable living space.
On the first floor return there is a feature guest bedroom which again is beautifully decorated with corner cabinet comprising a wash hand basin. On the second floor there are two large bedrooms, the master bedroom suite to front enjoys views over Raglan Road with a large well-appointed en-suite. There is a second double bedroom also with en suite. At garden level there is a fourth bedroom to the front, a versatile room to the rear currently used as a reading room/library, however, would easily lend itself as a gym, media room or additional bedroom. At the rear of the garden level there is an additional shower room and a cleverly designed serving kitchen complete with oven & hob, ideal for entertaining, both within the home and with easy access to the garden to rear.
To the front of the property there is ample car parking on a gravelled forecourt approached via wrought iron gates which are wired and ready to be set up for electronic use. The rear garden is a particular feature of the property. It is beautifully landscaped in a classical fashion with box hedging borders, gravel, patio and terrace.
This home is wonderful example of Victorian craftsmanship where the finest of materials and best quality fittings and fixtures have been used throughout the entire property. Houses of this calibre offering such beautifully appointed accommodation rarely comes to the market.
Raglan Road is a location of enviable convenience, exceptionally well located between Donnybrook and Ballsbridge and adjacent to a wide selection of amenities in the immediate area including specialist shops, bars, restaurants on Pembroke Road, various schools, the RDS and Herbert Park. The property is within walking distance of The Aviva Stadium and Dublin’s primary business, shopping and financial district. The DART at Lansdowne Road is also a short stroll away.
