Period redbrick with its own jacuzzi for €2.7m in Sandymount

The Edwardian redbrick is packed with high-end touches.

 THE LEAFY DUBLIN suburb of Sandymount has always been a highly sought-after area – and for good reason, too.

Minutes from the seashore and within walking distance of the city centre, rows of beautiful period properties exude the style and grandeur of years gone by. And their upkeep is often something to be marvelled at as well.

One such property sits on Claremont Road: a gorgeous Edwardian redbrick with Sandymount Green and all of the village’s amenities on its doorstep.

Number 26 has no shortage of parking to the front and a spacious back garden landscaped by well-known designer, Rachel Lamb. Now on the market for €2.7 million, this refurbished four-bed is in walk-in condition.

The entrance hall instantly proves that this home has worked hard to embrace modern touches with losing its integrity.

Underfloor heating brings things up to date, while original period detailing doesn’t let Number 26 forget its heritage.

Timber cabinets were made bespoke by the kitchen designer Chalon, and a large island that’s home to a breakfast bar, adds a more casual dining option. A mix of timber and granite work surfaces provide contrast while a cream AGA adds a countryside vibe.

Surrounded by large windows, the dining room is bright and spacious, overlooking the garden. The tall vaulted ceiling with its painted timber panelling matches the kitchen’s aesthetic for a brilliant sense of flow from room to room.

A bay window floods the drawing room with light, bringing attention to the marble fireplace and cornicing in both of these reception rooms.

The four bedrooms, on the upper floors, each have their own unique features yet share timber floors and recessed lighting that sets a cosy tone. The master bedroom, with its timber wall panelling and large walk-in dressing room, sits on the first floor.

Down the hall from the master bedroom is a luxurious bathroom. Fully tiled, it’s home to a jacuzzi bath tub, his-and-hers wash hand basins and a separate shower with side jets creating a tranquil space to relax in.

Designed by landscaper, Rachel Lamb, the gardens surrounding the property benefit from high hedging for extra privacy, a gravelled off-street parking forecourt and lawned areas with box hedging and hydrangeas.

And, for those who host regularly, a separate granny flat with a bedroom, kitchen and living area makes sure guests will have plenty of space.

The property’s Dublin 4 location means it’s close to Dublin city by bus or car, and Sandymount, Ballsbridge and Donnybrook are all accessible on foot.

26 Claremont Road, Sandymount, Dublin 4 is on the market for €2,700,000 through Sherry Fitzgerald (Sandymount) via Daft.ie.
