Property descriptionGracious Victorian Double fronted residence positioned at the head of this Period Terrace overlooking Crosthwaite Park.
This truly elegant home is very spacious (Approx 415 SQ.M.) and has been lovingly restored and upgraded over the last 35 years by the current owners. Crosthwaite Park house remains true to its period. The magnificent and perfectly proportioned reception rooms come with highly ornate original ceiling coving, central roses, original shutters and stunning period fireplaces. The elegant entrance hall, ground floor and first floor levels over three returns offer a wonderful blend of bedroom and reception accommodation. The Garden level not only offers practical space for a growing family but has been substantially upgraded and transformed through the addition of a large almost fully glazed Architect designed custom built garden room off the kitchen creating in the process a truly dramatic interaction between the garden and the kitchen.
Situated in upper Dun laoghaire - Rathdown, above the town, Crosthwaite Park has long been regarded as one of the most salubrious addresses in the area and from construction in the early 1860's has been much sought after. Lauded as one of the premium squares in the locality with previous famous residents including John Millingon Synge , Crosthwaite house is, as the name suggests, the trophy home on the park and comes with the advantage of easy access to a vast array of amenities, both social and essential. These include shopping facilities at nearby Glasthule, Dun Laoghaire, Monkstown and excellent transport links through popular bus routes, the DART and Aircoach together with convenient access to some of county Dublin's most prestigious schools.
Located on the south east coast of Dublin Bay, leisure facilities abound. For sailing enthusiasts the Royal harbour on Marine road is home to four Yacht clubs, including the National, Royal Irish and Royal St George. The piers and the many parks, including the now famous Peoples park, offer a choice of opportunity to walk, stroll or just sit to take in the atmosphere. Bathing in nearby Sandycove is soon to be augmented by new facilities currently under construction on the site of the Edwardian baths near the East pier.
A great sense of space strikes you as soon as you cross the threshold into the elegant entrance hall and sets the tone of what to expect throughout. Laid out over three floors, the accommodation offers great flexibility. The hall level features three superb receptions including an elegant morning / sitting room with bay window overlooking the park, a dramatic dining room with lovely rear garden aspect and a large Study with park facing window. All of these beautifully appointed rooms have original features including white marble fireplaces and highly ornate cornice work.
On the garden level return we find one of the large double bedrooms and a Victorian bathroom. The hall in the garden level has a superb Italian hand crafted terracotta floor in the hall with a large enamel log/ turf burning stove. There is a separate access to the front here and under the main hall entrance there is excellent storage currently used for storing wine and solid fuels. Leading off from the hall is a large utility room. The bespoke kitchen made of solid Canadian Ash free standing units features original Victorian porcelain and brass door handles painstakingly sourced over time by the current owners. This superb kitchen opens out on to the wonderful spacious garden room with underfloor heating and two sets of double doors to the gardens which include a thatched 8 person Gazebo and a Rockery water feature. Also at this level we have a family room or sixth bedroom, a double guest bedroom and a large bathroom.
At first floor level including the returns we have another three bedrooms, a bathroom and a truly stunning drawing room. This main reception is magnificent and epitomises gracious Victorian / Edwardian elegance. The drawing room offers a dual aspect through a large 3 window bay and two other windows with principle views out to the park.
Outside the property features elegant ornate stone inlaid pathways leading to the imposing entrance steps. There are well planted front and side gardens featuring an abundance of flowering plants, shrubs and specimen trees. There is a side access to the rear garden which is a lovely private space. The rear garden again is mature with a wide variety of flowering plants and shrubs and a large rolling lawn ending with a recently re- thatched and heated Gazebo beside a rockery waterfall. The property comes with rear access.
All in all this is a truly unique home and viewing is highly recommended
