Semi-Detached House for sale

Description

A most impressive listed Victorian House built c.1850, Lammermoor is approached through bespoke electric security gates while the extensive driveway is laid with fan shaped Portuguese granite cobble and can accommodate off street parking for up to four cars. There is a manicured front lawn framed in steel edging trim with a gravel border and shaded by a beautiful silver birch tree.

The entrance hall features a cast iron open fireplace, an over door decorative panel and timber wainscoting which carries through to the staircase hall, linked by a 12ft high arch providing a wonderful `through view` to the contemporary living space to the rear and garden beyond. The interconnecting drawing and dining room benefit from a tall bay window to the front offering wonderful natural daylight. The ornate chimney pieces, one open and one with a gas insert, provide a distinctive theme which together with the circular ceiling roses and chandeliers makes for a most pleasant living space. These two rooms can be separated by double swing back doors and feature Brazilian Wenge wooden flooring which continues through to the hallway. The staircase hall features at 24ft central atrium and acts as the entrance to the modern three storey rear by means of 10ft high double pocket doors. The pitch pine staircase has beautiful circular star carved motifs and ascends to the upper deck and stained glass ceiling light above. The guest WC is located off the hallway as is the cloakroom.

There is an incredible juxtaposition between the original part of Lammermoor and the contemporary living space to the rear comprising a fully fitted kitchen breakfast room with maple and cherry wood flooring which in turn opens into the `pavilion`, a spectacular structure with vaulted ceilings and full width sliding folding glass doors which when fully open tie in with the teak external deck and garden pool and planting. The pavilion is a perfect everyday living space featuring a Portuguese granite block fireplace with gas insert. Along with a dining area, there is also a separate bar area with counter and sink while sliding accordion type doors to both the kitchen and bar cater for flexibility, particularly when entertaining. Further ground floor accommodation includes a utility room and a large playroom/studio with an abundance of storage. There is substantial accommodation on the upper floors to include five double bedrooms all with built in wardrobes and three with their own en-suites. A particular highlight is the triple aspect second floor bedroom with its pitched ceiling and bank of windows, including a large porthole window, overlooking the gardens below. Further accommodation includes a luxurious family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and separate shower; and back on the main landing a raised relaxation/reading area known as `the deck`.

The back garden is a real surprise. With a Japanese theme it is a relaxing paradise seamlessly opening directly from the Pavilion on to beautiful teak decking hanging over a lily pond with fountain and water cascade. The planting is rich and dramatic with robust palms, ferns, acers and holly. Of note is a beautiful plum tree dating back to the 1850`s. To the rear of the garden is a
sizeable patio area with Indian sandstone paving, an ideal spot for alfresco dining and to capture the best of the evening sun.

Lammermoor is superbly located between the desirable villages of Ballsbridge and Sandymount. It is highly accessible, first class transport links include Sandymount DART Station (2 minute walk) while numerous bus routes service Sandymount village and the Merrion Road. Dublin City Centre is approx. 4km / 40 minute walk while the RDS, The Intercontinental Hotel and the new Facebook HQ are within a 10 minute walk. Many of Dublin` s premier secondary and primary schools including St. Michael`s College, Blackrock College, St. Andrew`s,
Muckross Park College, St. Conleth`s College and Star of the Sea National School are nearby.

This calculator is for illustrative and guidance purposes only and is not an offer of a loan. The amount you can borrow will depend on your individual circumstances and is subject to lending criteria, terms and conditions. Your mortgage may be subject to loan to value or loan to income limits and these limits may vary. Fixed rates roll to the corresponding new business variable rate at the end of the fixed period.

APRC calculations are based on the cost per month on a €100,000 mortgage over 20 years. APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. For Buy to Let, APRC includes a fee for the Banks solicitor of €950 plus VAT at 23% plus outlay of up to €350.

Principal Dwelling Homes: The lender is Bank of Ireland Mortgages. Lending criteria and terms and conditions apply. Over 18s only. Mortgage approval is subject to assessment of suitability and affordability. You mortgage your property to secure the loan. We require property and life insurance. Maximum loan is generally 3.5 times gross annual income and 80% of the property value (90% of the property value for first time buyers, 70% of the full property value for Buy to Let) but these limits may vary. A typical mortgage of €100,000 over 20 years with 240 monthly instalments costs €615.79 per month at 4.2% variable (Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (APRC) 4.3%). The total amount you pay is €148,114.60. APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. A 1% interest rate rise would increase monthly repayments by €54.02 per month. [The cost of your monthly repayments may increase – if you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home].

WARNING: IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP YOUR REPAYMENTS YOU MAY LOSE YOUR HOME.

WARNING: IF YOU DO NOT MEET THE REPAYMENTS ON YOUR LOAN, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL GO INTO ARREARS. THIS MAY AFFECT YOUR CREDIT RATING, WHICH MAY LIMIT YOUR ABILITY TO ACCESS CREDIT IN THE FUTURE.
