Catch up with friends in Dublin's best cafes, restaurants and bars at the drop of a hat. Enjoy an impromptu shopping spree in Brown Thomas. Or soak up the atmosphere at one of the many festivals held in town.
Even if you've had enough of Dublin, Lismorna is only a mere 25-minute drive from the airport. Did somebody say last-minute trips to Paris? Yes please. You know life is good when your biggest stress is determining how you'll fit half your wardrobe into your cabin bag.
There’s also a host of other attractive amenities surrounding you. UCD and Elm Park Golf Club are all basically on your doorstep.
Built in the 1930's, Lismorna oozes with period charm. You won't find your grandmothers style here though. Renowned architects Boyd Cody have given it an exclusive modern make-over. It’s jaw-droppingly beautiful.
Throughout the house, the focus on sleek, contemporary design draws you in. It feels extremely classy. Light flows freely, permeating each room, dancing perfectly with the architect’s re-vamp. Even on dull winter days, the house feels bright and airy.
To the front of the house, there's a welcoming gravel driveway, with ample space to park two cars. Inside, you find an amazing entrance hall complete with elegant timber flooring. If first impressions are as important as they say, then Lismorna really nails it here.
There’re three remarkable reception rooms, each with their own character and charm which are perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine after a long day. The chic kitchen/dining room offers ample room to rustle up family feasts and host dinner parties with friends.
Upstairs there's four luxurious bedrooms offering personal space, so each family member can get a good night’s sleep. The master bedroom has an ensuite, and there is also a large family bathroom. There's an additional bathroom downstairs, so there is no need to panic on busy mornings.
The mature garden to the rear is a blissful oasis of calm. We're talking garden goals personified here. It features a large patio with a view over the lush lawn, with enough foliage to ensure privacy. Ideal for basking in the sun, perusing the newspapers or sipping your cup of morning coffee. On summer evenings, it's time to spark up the grill and invite the gang around for a special barbecue feast. Heaven.
Lismorna is a beautiful four bed detached family home with a gorgeous mature garden and a location that’s hard to beat. There’s no mistaking that Lismorna offers buyers a serious slice of the good life.
Because of its extreme desirability, there’s no doubt that this property will be attracting a lot of attention from buyers. So if you’re interested, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Hunter’s Estate Agents to organise a viewing before it’s snapped up.
