Stylish south Dublin townhouse with Italian design touches

Live in the heart of Dublin 6 in this recently refurbished duplex.

RIGHT OPPOSITE PALMERSTON Park in Dartry, Dublin 6, sits 59 Balnagowan.

Three three-bedroom duplex is part of a secluded, gated development that was built in the late eighties on the grounds of the old Victorian priory.

The first thing that may strike onlookers are the terracotta steps that lead up to the front door, but that considered style continues inside too. Number 59 recently underwent a complete refurbishment, and every corner of the 1300 sq ft home has been transformed and upgraded.

Enter to the hallway and you’re greeted by polished Italian marble floors and a sleek carpeted staircase. A mix of greys and white set the relaxed tone for the rest of the home.

A marble fireplace with a coal effect gas fire is the focal point in the spacious lounge. Solid beechwood floors extend to the twin double doors that lead to the south facing balcony. Period coving and a centre rose are elegant nods to Georgian Dublin.

Storage is far from short supply in the kitchen. Contemporary grey fitted wall and floor units keep the space clear and easy to keep clean. Integrated Bosch appliances should suit any keen cooks. Porcelain floor tiles extend from the dining room to the kitchen for an aesthetic that creates a natural flow.

The first floor is home to a large master bedroom along with an en suite bathroom. Two more double bedrooms also benefit from fitted wardrobes. Pristine solid wood flooring covers each space.

On the top floor, you’ll find a fresh and light drenched attic with a large velux window. Perfect as a study or an extra bedroom, it’s accessed by an electronic folded staircase.

For some real community spirit, the new home owners can take advantage of the communal gardens, and the Victorian walled rose garden, that sits within.

Parking is often a problem with townhouses, but that doesn’t apply here. Each home has designated spots to the front of the property.

Both the Cowper and Miltown LUAS stops are just short strolls away, as are the villages of Ranelagh, Rathmines and Rathgar, making Balnagowan’s location an ideal one for families and young professionals alike.
