Medina Villa ticks so many boxes it is hard to know where to start. Original period home dating from 1860’s, tick. Fantastic location right in the heart of Terenure, tick. Renovated and decorated to a fantastic standard, tick. Spacious rooms and high ceilings, tick. Many period features still intact, tick. The list goes on and on.
And, for the buyer with literary aspirations, the house even gets a mention in one of Ireland’s most celebrated and iconic works of fiction, which, we imagine, will offer serious dinner party bragging rights: “First night when first I saw her at Mat Dillon’s in Terenure”, Medina Villa is celebrated in the works of James Joyce’s Ulysses where Leopold Bloom met his future wife Marion Tweedy, in the “lilac garden of Matthew Dillon’s house, Medina Villa, Kimmage Road, Roundtown in 1887.” (Roundtown was the name Terenure was known by until the late 1800’s)
Step up the elegant granite steps and through the classic Victorian front door, noticing the beautiful proportions of the hall, with the stairs sweeping upwards. The drawing room and dining room are spacious rooms, combining modern touches with original period features. Steps at the end of the hall bring you past a study nook down to the attractive kitchen. It has been fully modernised and is very well equipped, including built in appliances, an induction hob and a waste disposal. To the rear of the kitchen there is a utility area, a guest w.c. and a further reception room, perfect as a family or playroom. Four spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the picture upstairs. The master bedroom is ensuite and has dual aspect. This home is truly in walk-in condition, if this was to be your first period home the only headache you might encounter is choosing the furniture that will show it off to its full potential.
The side entrance to the property on Terenure Park is ideal for mucky children and bicycles to come and go, there is also ample bike storage and workshop space to the rear. The sunny back garden is private and low maintenance. Parking is often a real issue in older areas of Dublin but this property comes with an entitlement to on-street resident’s permits and has ample off-street parking front and rear. Terenure is one of Dublin’s many urban villages that has dramatically rejuvenated in the last decade or so. It was always a good location but now it has been improved by the arrival of trendy food outlets and coffee shops, and some larger supermarkets which were lacking for many years. There is ample public transport in many directions, including City Centre, UCD, Blackrock and the Airport.
