YOU’LL FIND GARVILLE Avenue in one of Dublin’s prettiest southside suburbs, Rathgar. Number 12 is an attractive red brick, end-of-terrace house, just one of several such redbricks on the leafy street.

Despite being built circa 1900, the property is far from dated. The four-bed home has been extended, re-designed and modernised in recent years, creating a beautiful family residence that retains its original charm and character.

Spanning 3,057 sq ft and two floors over a basement, No 12 also benefits from a 38m-long rear garden. It would be hard to resist even the faintest hint of sun with this attractive outdoor space, which includes a large outdoor entertainment section with an extensive barbecue area and raised gas fireplace.

There’s a manicured lawn beyond this, plus a sunken trampoline and play area. Mature shrubs and trees provide a sense of privacy.

Moving to the front of the property, a paved driveway offers off-street parking. Granite steps lead to the striking entrance hall with emerald green walls. To the left of the hallway is the bright and spacious drawing room which interconnects with the study. A bedroom is located to the rear of the hall, as well as an en-suite bathroom.

Steps to the lower ground floor lead to the light-filled kitchen, dining and living area. The country-style kitchen is sure to appeal to any keen home cook, with plenty of storage and preparation space, an AGA and a large centre island.

The dining area is well-proportioned for dinner parties, while the family room offers the perfect space to relax. Here, a full-length, curved feature window (which was designed and imported from Denmark) overlooks the garden. A playroom, bathroom, utility room and storage room complete the accommodation on this floor.

As for public transport, the area is incredibly well serviced by Dublin Bus, with the 15, 15a, 15b among the various regular routes taking you to the city and beyond.
