Henry Wiltshire is honoured to present Villa Maria, 18 Saint Mary’s Road to the open market. This splendid Victorian red brick residence is an exceptional property situated in one of the exclusive addresses in the city. Everything it offers gives the discerning purchaser a chance to have a much sought-after urban lifestyle. The property is within walking distance to St. Stephen’s Green. Herbert Park, the RDS and the Aviva Stadium. A number of prestigious Embassies are also located close by. Some of the finest schools in the country are also in very close proximity including St Andrews, Blackrock and Gonzaga Colleges , Alexandra College, St. Michael’s College and Mount Anville, to name a few.
The property itself is a beautiful example of a lovingly maintained and welcoming family home. It boasts many original features including a splendid staircase, preserved wood floors alongside simply stunning cornices and coving with ornate fireplaces. The high ceilings enhance the generous proportions of each room whilst the superb sash windows allow light to flood in and frame the perfect views beyond. There are two large reception rooms and four beautifully appointed bedrooms. The fourth bedroom is currently being used as a study. The very large open plan kitchen and living area is bright and full of light, providing uninterrupted views of the secluded landscaped gardens beyond.
There are too many qualities to mention in this fine home which currently spans over approx. 218sq m t (2,346 sq ft). There is also an adjoining self-contained one bedroomed apartment with own entrance and private courtyard approx.37sq m (398sq ft).
Planning approval has been granted to extend the existing property at first floor level and construct a new one bedroom self contained apartment at ground floor level.
Additional planning permission has been granted to construct a new two storey three bedroom house adjoining the existing property and two bedroom house at the extreme rear of the garden.
We have no doubt No.18 will speak for itself and offers a unique opportunity to acquire one of the finest residences within this sought after area of Dublin.
