Property description
A magnificent late-Victorian detached villa in the leafy heart of Dublin 6. Hatherton was built in 1860.Throughout its history, it has played host to a wealth of fascinating occupants, and witnessed a changing Ireland, through the emergence of an independent Republic and the ebb and flow of the country's fortunes. Now beautifully restored, Hatherton is a private oasis ready to welcome the next generation.

On just under an acre of grounds, set back from the road and secluded by mature trees, Hatherton has six bedrooms over approx. 696 sq.m. (7,491 sq.ft.), and a separate two bedroomed garden mews. The house includes magnificent formal rooms, exceptionally comfortable family spaces, and a self-contained staff suite.

Your own spacious, elegant retreat in the heart of leafy Dublin 6.

Fully refurbished, sensitively restored, and wonderfully maintained, Hatherton is a perfect example of how to celebrate the period charms of such a house, while providing ample space for relaxed family life. The meticulous nature of the restoration has emphasised the beauty of the building, while the exacting attention to detail of the owners, their architect and craftspeople is breath-taking.

Pedimented doors, Corinthian columns, ceiling coving and centre roses are grounded by solid wood, and polished limestone floors as the hallway leads to a quartet of exceptionally elegant reception rooms, where the formality of their grand aspect is offset by the pervasive and welcoming atmosphere of the house. From the dual aspect drawing room, dining room and sitting room, each with its own marble fireplace, to the joy of the bar, where you'll find the wonderful feel of a favourite club, this is a house where entertaining is a delight.

Tall windows give views to the gardens, or to the mature trees that screen the facade, while high ceilings let in all that wonderful light. At garden level, family living comes to the fore, with a large and bright kitchen. Here you have both an Aga and a separate top of the range oven and hob, and all the prep space and surfaces a chef could desire. Beyond this a family room and breakfast room each open to the gardens, while a separate entertainment room makes a very worthy and wonderful den.

Upstairs, the four bedrooms are all large ensuite doubles, with gorgeous views of the tree tops. They have ample storage solutions and a deliciously serene feeling. There is also an office at the bedroom return, along with a toilet located beside it, convenient if another bedroom should ever be required. Although, this is unlikely, as there are two further double bedrooms at garden level, one including a bathroom and kitchen, which serves as ideal accommodation for an au pair, nanny or housekeeper or convenient accommodation for someone elderly, who might prefer to avoid the stairs and another generous double with ensuite currently used by one of the owners sons.

Should a home office be required, there is no shortage of space for an entire suite of offices, a gym, games room, store, or indeed a swimming pool in the extensive 1,752 square feet provided by the contemporary mews accommodation currently laid out as a two bedroom apartment and a separate gym and store.
