Full description:

Hunters Estate Agent are truly honoured to present to the market this very fine 19th century Georgian residence discreetly positioned in the very heart of Ballsbridge and very much representative of its' era.

86 Pembroke Road presents a very fine opportunity for a discerning purchaser to acquire a home of distinction and elegance, extending to c. 418 sq m/4,500 sq ft, that has been meticulously maintained, modified and decorated. Refurbishment work has been carried out with planning permission, where required, and under the guidance of a conservation architect. Throughout the property the proportions and quality of light together create a wonderful atmosphere redolent of a bygone era of gentility. Marrying perfectly old and new this elegant property contains a wealth of period features including original doors, window shutters, decorative plasterwork and period fireplaces, whilst at the same time providing for all modern comforts and requirements.

The very fine period detail is enjoyed throughout the 4 reception rooms and 5 bedrooms, in the main house. It is very evident from the layout and presentation of each of these rooms that they are very much used, and enjoyed, and the flow of the house was given great consideration by the owners and the architect, resulting in a very pleasant space, further enhanced by the views across the city, to the Dublin Mountains and down the tree lined neighbouring roads.

The present owners very much wanted to provide for visiting friends and family to have their own discreet resting place, resulting in a charming space at garden level which is laid out with a very fine reception room, kitchen/breakfast room and master suite. The apartment is separately piped and metered for gas, electricity and water.

The exacting standards of the interiors have been carried through to the terraces and gardens, of which there are 3 distinctive spaces. French doors lead from the morning room to an extremely private garden which is laid out with the original 19th century pink sandstone slabs, bordered by feature raised flowerbeds planted with a colourful array of specimen shrubs and flowering plants. From the first floor there is access to a generous deck, bordered by railing and providing a very pleasant space for al fresco dining. And finally, at garden level, the Guest apartment enjoys a pri-vate courtyard bordered by flowering beds.

Pembroke Road connects Ballsbridge to Fitzwilliam Square. In 1816 the 7th Viscount FitzWilliam died, and bequeathed his estate to his cousin, the 11th Earl of Pembroke. The FitzWilliam estate, henceforth known as the Pembroke Estate, began to develop the lands in Ballsbridge along the lines of fashionable and profitable London districts such as Belgravia and Mayfair. It was to be an inner city suburb to accommodate the local gentry, professionals and merchants.

In 1806 Trinity College took a lease from the FitzWilliam estate to establish the Botanic Gardens for the use of staff and students. The Gardens, boarded by the roads of Pembroke, Lansdowne and Shelbourne, survived for nearly 160 years; an oasis of green, in what was to become a busy, cosmopolitan area.

86 Pembroke Road exemplifies distinctive and admirable restoration of a very fine city dwelling.

Viewing is highly recommended.
