St Mary’s Avenue is a quiet Edwardian cul-de-sac tucked in just behind the historic Yellow House pub / restaurant. Number fourteen is a fantastic example of how a home can be reinvented to suit the tastes and style of every new generation, while still preserving its original Edwardian charm. It’s an own-door home full of character at a price point that, in Rathfarnham, would usually mean apartment living.
When families first moved into St. Mary’s Avenue, almost 100 years ago, Rathfarnham was ‘out in the country’. The area was a favourite location for the gentry of Dublin to maintain their country estates and much of this grandeur is still in evidence. Rathfarnham Castle, Loreto Abbey, St. Enda’s and Marley House all began their lives as homes for wealthy Dubliners. Happily, most of these grand estates have now become part of the fantastic local community infrastructure, with parks, schools and other facilities right on the doorstep for local residents.
Sitting room, dining room and kitchen are all decorated in a modern palette. A custom-built storage unit in the dining room makes great use of space and offers fantastic storage and display opportunities. The kitchen, which includes a small extended area, has been updated within the last few years with smart new worktops and a modern painted finish. The bathroom, located on the ground floor, is spacious and well fitted. Upstairs there are two good size bedrooms, both beautifully decorated.
The sunny backyard is well set up for summer barbecues and lazy evenings outdoors with built in seating for visiting pals. Roaming more widely, the village of Rathfarnham is literally around the corner, you could nip out to Centra for milk and be back almost before the kettle boiled. Rathfarnham Castle, including playground, tearoom and public park, is just across the road. Further afield, St. Enda’s, Bushy Park and Marley Park are all easily reached. Terenure village, with a great selection of restaurants and coffee stops, is a 20 minute walk away across the Dodder. There is a good selection of creches and schools in the area, both junior and secondary, and great transport links to the city and elsewhere.
The Bottom Line
Don’t hang around. If the location isn’t enough (and it absolutely should be!) the house itself will seal this deal quickly for sure.
