Churches Estate Agents are delighted to present a wonderful Victorian-era cottage in a prestigious location in the heart of Sandymount. Gilford Terrace is a quiet cul-de-sac of attractive red-brick cottages, built in 1894 for workers at the adjacent tram depot, set just off Gilford Road and a stone’s throw from the stunning coastline at the Sandymount Strand.
16 Gilford Terrace is a well-presented two bedroom cottage extending to 50 sq m (540 sq ft), featuring cosy living room, bright open-plan kitchen, full bathroom and two good-sized double bedrooms plus a secluded courtyard garden to rear.
The location could not be better. The property faces to the West over the grounds of Lakelands Scoil Mhuire, catching the evening sun, completely private and not overlooked. To the rear a high stone wall ensures complete privacy and safety, the property backing onto the former tram depot, now a trendy office building in a converted Victorian warehouse.
Gilford Road and the adjoining addresses feature a range of substantial houses and attractive streets, leading you up to the Sandymount Strand (200 metres) or down into the bustling Sandymount Village (600 metres). Sandymount DART station is less than 1km walk.
Local amenities include:
SCHOOLS – The exceptional Lakelands Scoil Mhuire (girls primary school) and Gilford Montessori immediately adjacent to the property. Alternatively there is Star of the Sea (boys primary) or Shellybanks Educate Together off Merrion Road, plus many excellent secondary schools in the Dublin 4 and South Dublin area.
LEISURE – In addition to the stunning Sandymount Strand, there are many Leisure facilities nearby including the West Wood Club on St. John’s Road and a number of sports clubs. The Aviva Stadium is less than 1.5km walk, as is the Royal Dublin Showground (RDS).
AMENITIES – Although only a short trip to Dublin City Centre, you may need to look no further than Sandymount Village, which includes dozens of excellent cafes, restaurants, pubs and small shops. The area is also well catered for medical facilities including local doctors and less than 10 minutes to both St. Vincent’s Hospital and the Blackrock Clinic.
