Located on a quiet cul de sac off the North Circular Road, no 7 Marlborough Road is one of only 13 houses on the street which were built for the officers of the British Army stationed in the neighboring Marlborough Barracks, later renamed McKee Barracks. Meenmore is one of a terrace of beautifully maintained properties built in 1900 using the finest of materials and expert craftmanship.
In 2018 it was given a thoroughly modern makeover which included a full refurbishment and extension to the rear of the house. The result is a beautiful Victorian home with numerous period features which combine beautifully with all the modern comforts and stylish on trend décor. The extension was architecturally designed with the brief from the client to allow the maximum amount of light into the space. Storage was also a priority and as a result this is a large but comfortable home which will fulfill every wish a family may have.
The accommodation comprises a porch with tiled floor leading to the hallway with many original features, an impressive staircase and wc off. The sophisticated reception rooms are interconnecting but can be closed off by pocket doors. Both rooms have beautiful features including fireplaces, covings, roses and picture rails, the living room to the front has a bay window while the dining room has an opening to the kitchen. This is a fabulous space full of light with high ceiling and two light wells allowing light to flood into the room. The kitchen is fitted with hand painted solid timber units by Dillon Kitchens and the units and spectacular island are topped with quartzite. A very useful addition is a number of discrete utility cupboards. There is a generous seating area which overlooks the garden which is accessed via a large sliding door.
Upstairs there are four large double rooms with two having en suite shower rooms, the main bedroom also has a dressing room while a luxuriously appointed family bathroom completes the accommodation. The finishes and décor were all advised by an interior designer and give a warm, luxurious feel to the house enhanced by lavish, high spec fixtures and fittings.
The gardens have been professionally landscaped, the front garden has a tiled path to the front door with ornate railing, low maintenance chippings and a beautiful Wisteria trailing over the porch door. The rear garden is also very low maintenance with a patio complete with a built-in barbeque area closer to the house and granite steps leading to a spacious area laid with AstroTurf with herbaceous borders offering a riot of colour and interest. A storage shed has a children's playhouse on the roof and slide. A rear gate leads to a gated laneway.
Marlborough Road enjoys a superb location just a short stroll from Stoneybatter Village with its many shops, restaurants and cafes and is within comfortable walking distance of the city centre. The gates of the Phoenix Park are 500m away with ready access to a playground and Dublin Zoo. Grangegorman grounds, Phibsborough & Smithfield Villages' are also easily accessible. There are many popular schools locally with a great public transport system including bus routes passing along the North Circular Road as well as the nearby LUAS. The property is within minutes of The Four Courts, Law Library, King's Inns, Blackhall Place, The Mater Hospital and DIT Grangegorman.
