A VICTORIAN RESIDENCE located in Terenure, Dublin 6, Glencar oozes luxury from the outset.

Set back from a tree-lined road beside Terenure village, the four-bedroom property spans an impressive 3,282 sq ft and sits on 0.3 acres of gardens. Still not enough room? The two-bedroom coach house to the rear should do the trick.

Inside, Glencar boasts much of its original charm, with Victorian period details throughout including high ceilings, fireplaces, cornicing and tall sash windows. The open-plan dining room and drawing room to the left of the hallway is perfect for entertaining, but it’s the kitchen at garden level that is the heart of the house.

An extension to the original property, this area is filled with natural light thanks to roof windows, floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors. Sleek cabinets provide plenty of storage space, while the breakfast bar at the centre island is ideal for informal meals.

Glencar’s beautiful landscaped gardens can be accessed from three separate points in the kitchen, with plenty of space to dine al fresco as the little ones run around. 

For further space to unwind, there’s also a family room on this floor, as well as a study, utility room, bedroom and en-suite bathroom. On the top floor, there are three spacious bedrooms and stylish family bathroom with chequered tiles.

At the very end of the garden is the two-bedroom coach house, which boasts its own level of privacy from the main residence thanks to a stone wall. This property measures 926 sq ft and features the original stone facade, while the interior was refurbished in recent times. 

Accommodation comprises a bright and airy kitchen, a spacious living room, a bathroom and two bedrooms.

Outside, a large patio area is perfect for entertaining or unwinding after a long day. The gardens enjoy a high level of seclusion as they back onto the playing grounds of VEC Football Club.
