Quillsen is delighted to present to the market, No 586 South Circular Road, a warm and most inviting Edwardian home that is enviably situated on the door steps of all that the city centre has to offer.

Built in 1903 by Charles Archer, a renowned builder of that period, this is a beautiful, elegant home that has been carefully maintained and preserved throughout its many years. It's host of attractive period features that include a variety of striking period fireplaces together with the exquisite brickwork, plasterwork, joinery, and stained glass of its time, present in excellent condition throughout.

Beyond its attractive red brick, bay windowed façade, this fine 3 / 4 bed home extends to approximately 175 Sqm / 1,880 sqft (including attic room). Presented in excellent condition throughout, the gracious accommodation briefly comprises, at entrance level, two beautiful interconnecting reception rooms, a kitchen / breakfast room with conservatory off and an understairs WC.

Upstairs, there is a magnificent bay windowed bedroom that spans the width of the house, 2 further double bedrooms and family bathroom. In addition, there is the very valuable addition of a spacious attic room with extensive eves storage off. This room is currently configured as a spacious 4th double bedroom.

A concrete built double shed to the rear provides valuable storage space and pedestrian access to the rear. The rear garden is private, paved for ease of maintenance and features a sun trapped seating area together with an array of attractive mature hedging and shrubbery. As a valuable optional extra, a rearrangement of the rear would provide vehicular access from the rear laneway.

To the front, there is a sun trapped garden with tiled walkway, attractive iron railing and a variety of mature trees and shrubbery.

The convenience of the location speaks for itself. In addition to easy access to the city centre itself, this beautiful tree lined stretch of the South Circular Road offers a fine selection of local cafés, restaurants, and shops. The Irish Museum of Modern Art at the Royal Hospital, The Phoenix Park, War Memorial Gardens and Heuston Station are within strolling distance.

The city centre is easily accessible on foot, by bicycle and the area is well served by both bus and the LUAS. To complete the picture and underscore the convenience of the location, the nearby M50 Motorway provides easy access to the airport and all national routes.

In addition to a convenient address, what is on offer at No 586 is the opportunity to live in a stylish contemporary family home that's fused with the charm and classic elegance of a by-gone era – a viewing comes highly recommended.
