The sale of Rockville House affords the discerning purchaser an exciting opportunity to acquire one of Dublin's landmark homes in this sought after and exceptionally convenient location at the Sydney Parade Avenue end of Ailesbury Road.

The property, which provides over 300 sq. m./3,228 sq. ft. (approx.) of bright elegant and well-maintained accommodation and is being sold with the benefit of full planning for a very impressive and spacious kitchen/living/dining room extension to the rear.

This most attractive detached residence stands on an impressive site extending to 0.3 acre, which with some clever landscaping could create lovely private, secluded and generous gardens in the heart of Ballsbridge.

In brief, the elegant, light-filled accommodation which is laid out over 2 floors (with the exception of the 3 storey turret) comprises:

Gracious entrance hall with large guest cloakroom off. Also off the hallway there are 4 fine reception rooms including the lovely light-filled interconnecting drawing room and dining room, in addition to a good sized living room and cosy study. Also on the ground floor is the original kitchen, large laundry and spacious conservatory. There is full planning permission to replace the conservatory with a very impressive 31.5 sq. m./340 sq. ft. (approx.) kitchen/breakfast/dining room.

On the return, you will find the large family bathroom, walk-in linen press and hotpress.

On the first floor, there are 5 good sized bedrooms, and bathroom. The main bedroom has an impressive bathroom ensuite in the turret.

From the spacious landing, a stair leads to the top floor of the turret where you will find bedroom 6, or lovely quiet study.

Having been well-maintained by its current owners over the last 40 years, Rockville House offers tremendous potential to further enhance its appeal by creating a sizeable light-filled kitchen/breakfast/living room to the rear, for which planning permission has been obtained.

Enjoying extensive frontage onto Ailesbury Road and Sydney Parade Avenue on this pivotal site, within a few hundred yards of Sydney Parade DART station, the property enjoys one of Dublin's most sought-after and convenient locations, with a host of amenities within easy walking distance.

Just some of these amenities include Merrion Shopping Centre, St. Vincent's public and private hospitals and the excellent recreational amenities of Ballsbridge and Sandymount including Herbert Park, numerous sports clubs, the Aviva Stadium, Sandymount Strand and village.

All the family's educational needs are also very well catered for with many of the city's principal primary and secondary schools located within easy reach such as Lakelands, St. Mary's and Star of the Sea primary schools and St. Michael's College, The Teresians, Muckross Park, Blackrock College and St. Andrew's secondary schools. Third level education is also very accessible at UCD Belfield and Trinity College via the DART.

All in all, this is a very special opportunity to acquire a truly unique residence on Ailesbury Road in the heart of Dublin's embassy belt.
