Magnificent Main Section of Period Property with Sensational Sea Views over Dublin Bay
Savills proudly presents to the market this stunning period property with sensational sea views. One of the original four sea facing flagship houses built in the mid-1800s and named Idrone Sur Mer', the sale of these houses funded the construction of the 23 smaller houses on Idrone Terrace.
15 Idrone Terrace is a truly elegant home. Although it requires refurbishment, the unique grace and original features of the house have been beautifully preserved.
Since the early 1960's the house served as an elegant home for one large family. The proportions of the four houses in the middle of the terrace are such that number 15 would easily convert to two or more spacious, well appointed period homes over the privately owned basement.
When you step into the porch through the double doors, you will notice the natural light coming through the side lights. From the porch, step into the high-ceilinged, corniced entrance hall where chandelier-style lighting hangs gracefully from an original ceiling rose before an ornate arch.
The front reception room - originally used as the dining room - enjoys a beautiful view of sea and sky through a large sash window, which still has the original wooden shutters, in working order. The original fireplace promises ambience and warmth on cold winter evenings.
The rear reception room is currently used as a kitchen and enjoys a garden view beyond another original open fireplace.
To the rear of the walk in level, after a cloakroom and an abundance of under stairs storage, a further reception room is lit naturally through a glass panel door, leading to the conservatory which houses an old, fruit-bearing grapevine. The lawned garden is home to apple, pear, bay and lilac trees and a young cherry tree.
The rear of the garden offers potential private off street parking.
Stairs rising to the first floor return are delicately lit by a stained glass window. The "conservatory bedroom" on this floor return enjoys a pleasant garden outlook and a charming original fireplace.
The first floor at the front of the house offers a spectacular drawing room which is the width of the whole house. There are two large sash windows with wooden shutters overlooking Dublin Bay. The ceilings are high, there is beautiful cornicing and another beautiful marble fireplace. A sizeable rear bedroom on the first floor enjoys tranquil garden views.
On the second floor return, another bedroom enjoys a peaceful garden view from a sash window. There is a shower room and separate WC on this floor.
The top floor of 15 Idrone Terrace offers another spacious bedroom, well lit from a sash window, looking onto the garden and the Dublin mountains. Beside this top bedroom is a storage room, ideal for conversion to an ensuite.
Idrone Terrace is a highly sought after address. Aside from the sunrise and sunset sea views over the beautiful bay, the boutique village of Blackrock provides a wide array of amenities and every imaginable convenience. Two minutes walk will bring you to the bus terminus and to the railway station where you can catch a bus, DART or Intercity service. The Aircoach also stops in Blackrock.
Many reputable schools are in, or close to, Blackrock and there are many good quality recreational activities and facilities in the area.
