Sale Agreed




115 sq.m.



Janet Carroll Estate Agents are delighted to offer this most magnificent two bedroom period apartment for sale by private treaty. Marlfield House built in 1752 was sensitively restored to incorporate 13 luxurious apartments in 2001 by Shannon Homes. Finished to the highest specifications, the developer did a beautiful job dividing it carefully and tastefully to maintain many of its original period features. This has done both the apartment and the setting justice in preserving its history. A country house built for John Dwyer, one-time secretary to Lord Chancellor John Fitzgibbon, the listed building is noted as an important component of the domestic build heritage of South County Dublin. It was the home of the Right Honourable William Kenny (1846-1921), Judge of the Supreme Court of Ireland, 1911. Entering the building you are greeted by the original semi-circular porch with curved sliding doors and Doric granite pillars, leading to the spacious lobby with high ceiling and ornate cornicing. Number 2 is an impressive c.115sqm /1237sq. ft. located at garden level and is easily accessible by returning stairs or internal lift. It enjoys one of the nicest features of the house, six elegant bay sash windows which bring in lots of natural light. The living room alone has three sash windows that frame this space beautifully. From the moment one enters this apartment it is clear that the current owner takes great pride in their abode and this is reflected in the house itself. The residents have a great sense of pride in their property and this is evident in the immaculately furnished common areas within the building. They simply do not make them like this any more and this is one not to miss.
