Mullery O'Gara are delighted to present this hidden gem to the market. Exceptionally well presented and maintained and superbly positioned in this quiet, gated development with a wide range of amenities within walking distance.
The interior is bright, spacious and exceptionally well-maintained with a turn-key finish. A unique feature of this house is the large windows and higher ceilings which provide light filled rooms with a great sense of space throughout. The living room looks onto a lovely private rear garden and offers a great sense of seclusion whilst the kitchen overlooks the communal garden to the front.
Newtown Grove is set back off the road in a quiet, secure gated development surrounded by mature trees and landscaped lawn. It comprises 9 houses build circa 1994 and is adjacent to Synge House, a period building of historic significance as the birthplace of Irish playwright John Millington Synge. There is designated parking to the front of each house along with ample visitor parking.
The rear garden is laid out mainly in lawn and flowerbeds and has two patio areas. It enjoys a private aspect thanks to a selection of mature trees and shrubs, and is not overlooked from the rear. The patio area at the end of the lawn provides an ideal suntrap for catching the sun throughout the day. The granite stone wall at the end of the garden dates from the time of the original Newtown Villas estate established in the 1800s.
This lovely property offers excellent potential - the large attic of 10.5ft x 18ft, which includes a roof height of 7ft to 10.5ft, offers fantastic potential for conversion with sufficient room for a fourth bedroom and bathroom. There is also opportunity to extend into the garden from the ground floor.
Newtown Grove is a much sought-after development at a highly convenient and incredibly central location in one of Dublin’s most popular and mature residential areas between Rathgar, Terenure, Churchtown and Dundrum. Every conceivable amenity is within a short stroll. It is a 3-minute walk to the local grocery store, pharmacy, medical practice, salons and other neighbourhood shops. The same distance in the other direction brings you to the entrance of Orwell Park which connects into Darty and Bushy parks. The Dodder Walk also links into the new Dodder Greenway development for pedestrians and cyclists, which on full completion, will connect into the city centre.
SuperValu, Meadows & Byrne, Robbie’s Greengrocers, Howards Way, Churchtown Stores, Elephant & Castle, The Cosy Bean Café, The Bottle Tower and many other local cafés, restaurants and shops are within a 10-minute walk. St Enda’s and Marlay parks are also close by providing further opportunity for local walking/running routes, cycling, woodland trails and a weekly farmer’s market.
The Castle Golf Club and Milltown Golf Club are both located within a 1-kilometre radius of Newtown Grove. Sport clubs nearby include Rathgar and Brookfield Tennis Clubs, Swan Leisure Centre and Swimming Pool, Nutgrove Gym and Pool, Terenure Sports Club, and Leinster Cricket Club.
Dundrum Town Centre is a few minutes’ drive away with its many boutique shops, restaurants and cinema. It is just a 15-minute walk to Rathgar Village and Dublin City Centre is approx. 4.8 km away.
