THE WORD ‘OPULENT’ is bandied around a lot when it comes to the description of properties. In many cases, it’s just hyperbole, but that’s not the case with Serena – an extravagant 435m² home that sits back from the Brighton Road in Foxrock, Dublin 18.

Built in the ’90s, Serena is a luxury two-storey red brick where no expense has been spared. And it has the price tag to prove it – it’s now on the market for €3,250,000.

As you approach this majestic property, the turreted elevation grabs your attention, setting the tone for what lies inside. The landscaped grounds, adorned with double limestone-covered carports, create a warm welcome.

Upon entering the home, you’re greeted by a two-story galleried reception area adorned with a double-drop crystal chandelier and a marble fireplace. The main reception room has triple aspect picture windows, a stunning marble fireplace and a bay window, making it the perfect place to entertain in.

Sitting on a generous .3 of an acre plot, Serena offers spacious, light-filled rooms with impressive features throughout. No surprise that the social spaces (six reception rooms in total) are meticulously presented and decorated to perfection.

One of the highlights of Serena is the spacious kitchen that’s open plan and incorporates a dining room and sitting area. Measuring an impressive 10 x 7 metres, the high vaulted ceiling, lantern roof light, in-frame kitchen, AGA cooker and large breakfast island create a fantastic space for both cooking and entertaining.

Multiple patio doors open to the back garden, blurring the line between indoors and outdoors.

The first floor of Serena is as impressive as the ground floor. Four large double bedrooms, including a master suite with a walk-in wardrobe, luxury en suite bathroom along with a balcony, offer ultimate comfort. Three more well-proportioned bedrooms, two of which have their own bathrooms, ensure plenty of space for family members and guests. The self-contained top floor with its own kitchen adds even more versatility to the property.

Special features include electric curtains and blinds, a piped hoover system, a laundry chute and even a top-end music system by Bang & Olufsen.
