Property descriptionCarlisle Terrace was constructed in 1859 by Baron Talbot de Malahide for officers returning from the Crimean War. There are only eight semi detached properties on this Victorian terrace which is steeped in history and situated in a most prestigious setting in the heart of Malahide village, just 200 metres from the very heart of the village, the Diamond. Thus, one can embrace the atmosphere of this unique and charming village with its many shops, boutiques and restaurants. The property enjoys an enviable position on the west side of Church Road, close to St Andrew's Church and opposite St Andrew's National School.
Set amid large mature and beautifully manicured Victorian gardens the property is bounded by its original stone walls and the private west facing rear garden extends to 176' approx. with the added benefit of full afternoon and evening sunshine. Rear access is provided with full sized gates to Stable Lane, which is undeveloped. The possibility of mews potential remains subject to future planning permission.
Upon arrival interested parties will instantly admire the vendors taste in decoration and presentation which is of the highest standard and will enjoy the warm welcoming atmosphere throughout.
Approached by wrought iron gates and gravel driveway the front garden provides excellent off street parking together with a mature lawn, colourful shrubbery and walls clad in Boston Ivy. A side entrance leads through to the magnificent rear garden bounded by its original stone walls and extending to 176' approx. The extensive lawn is complemented by an array of colourful shrubs, creepers, fruit trees, cherry blossom and a mature holly tree, which is covered in berries in the autumn. There is also a greenhouse and a large red cedar garden shed, barbecue area and extensive Liscannor stone patio. Rear vehicular access to the property is provided through full sized gates to Stable Lane which is gated providing excellent security.
In 2001, a substantial two storey extension was added to replace the existing small rear annexe, making No 7 one of the largest houses in the terrace. Simultaneously, the house was also fully rewired and replumbed, and a new heating system added with antique style radiators with underfloor heating in the kitchen and extension. New floors and joists were also laid.
Internally the property enjoys gracious well-proportioned accommodation which is complemented by many fine architectural embellishments of its era including high ceilings, coving and original internal window shutters. All external windows have Phonewatch sensor alarms.
The formal Drawing Room and Dining Room are located either side of the hallway and behind the Drawing Room there is a wonderful Conservatory built in 1990 by Norman Pratt with remote controlled electronic blinds to the roof and windows. The Kitchen which is the heart of the house was enlarged and superbly designed by John Daly in 2001 and features a new natural gas fired Aga together with Aga module.
From the Kitchen there is access to the new extension, which provides an additional rear staircase to the first floor. The ground floor provides for a large but elegant Family / TV Room which is currently home to a baby grand piano (not included) and feature Norwegian cast iron Jotul sold fuel stove. The pine staircase from here provides access to the fourth double ensuite bedroom, a walk-in hot press and a purpose built office with filing and shelving. From the reception hall, the elegant staircase leads to the first floor with WC on the return to spacious landing above. The first floor provides for three further double bedrooms, including a superb ensuite main bedroom, as well as a family bathroom. Access through the third bedroom leads back to the annexe with bedroom four, office and second staircase back down to the Family /TV Room.
