Ganly Walters is excited to present No. 42 Merlyn Road to the market. This substantial 1940’s family home has been lovingly maintained and upgraded over the years by its current owners and is presented in turn key condition, yet offers discerning purchasers excellent scope to expand the original foot print and further enhance to one’s own personal style and taste.

Enjoying a premier address in this mature enclave of desirable homes and ideally positioned just off the Merrion Road, this impressive property stands 167 sq.m / 1797 sq.ft (approx.) of generous room proportions while providing a perfectly flowing light filled accommodation throughout.

Encompassing family living at its best, this magnificent four bedroom property briefly comprises a storm porch, entrance hall with guest w/c, lounge with open fireplace and arched double doors, interconnecting dining room which opens out to a beautifully landscaped rear garden, study, living room which leads through to a modern kitchen/breakfast room complete with a shaker style kitchen while providing access to the rear of the property. A utility room located off the kitchen can be independently accessed from the front of the property and completes the ground floor accommodation.

Upstairs, a feature stained glass window illuminates the landing and provides access to the four bedrooms, family bathroom and separate w/c completing the upstairs accommodation. Additionally, a Stira pull down ladder goes up to the attic space, which would easily convert to accommodate an additional bedroom due to the nature of its cut timber roof construction with increased head height, as adopted by many of the neighbouring properties.

Outside, the rear sunny walled garden has been landscaped and cleverly designed incorporating a flagstone path, potting shed and manicured lawn full of mature trees and shrubs providing a real sense of peace and tranquillity. To the front of the property, a landscaped garden borders the drive and provides off street parking for two cars. The new owners of this charming home will be inheriting truly magnificent gardens with an array of choice specimens including wonderful wisteria, magnificent magnolia and marvellous midsummer beauty that have taken many years to mature.

No. 42 Merlyn Road enjoys a superior cul de sac setting and is located in one of Dublin’s premier residential areas within easy reach of a host of local amenities including the picturesque village of Sandymount with its coastal walks, Merrion Shopping Centre, The R.D.S., Elm Park Golf and Sports Club, St. Vincent’s Hospital.
