Built back in the 1880’s No. 8 was built for the royal Navy and Army and has a sense of superiority and grandeur which is enchanting. It really is a superb house in a superb setting with a really nice view of Monkstown. The house is bright, big, spacious and pretty and offers the most amazing original features such as Pitch pines floor boards and doors, fireplaces, spacious rooms, high ceilings, cornicing and loads of knooks and crannies.
No. 8 is located to the west end of the town, it is a 3 storey semi detached 3500sq.ft house with a detached 2 storey unit, landscaped garden leading down to the train station in Rushbrook – so convenient and when you walk down there it is like a wonderland so pretty. When you go through the gates leading to the path which bring you to the train station, you would also own the land outside the gate. Location wise you are within walking distance of the town itself, local schools, tennis club and all other sports.
You approach the house via steps to the rear of the house from the private road – you could convert the 2 storey unit into a carport as others have. When you walk down to the house, you have the porch, then in turn the original front door leading to the entrance hall which in turn leads to the utility room, downstairs WC & WHB, 2 reception rooms with double doors from the one to the other, bay window and a door to the patio area. Both reception rooms have original fireplaces ( one has a stove), one of the reception rooms leads into the kitchen which still has the original Stanley Aga, off the kitchen is a room which could be used as a playroom, office etc.
First floor – 3 bedrooms, bathroom and a shower room with a WC & WHB.
Second floor – 3 bedrooms and what could be a bathroom.
Features include – gas central heating, PVC double glazed windows, all the rooms have been drylined so insulated and the roof was replaced 20 years ago.
The one thing about Rushbrook Terrace is that you could work your imagination as it has oddles of potential, it does need upgrading but structurally it appears to be a fine solid house. You are facing south west so you have the sun all day at the right times.
Great house and well worth a visit. GUIDE PRICE – €525,000
