A most impressive family home constructed c. 1930 enjoying an enviable setting discretely positioned off Orwell Road along arguably one of the most sought-after mature addresses in Rathgar. Number 6 Thorncliffe Park is approached via a tarmacadam drive providing ample off-street parking with a lawned garden surrounded by well-defined boundaries. To the rear there is a magnificent lawned garden of approximately 21m (69ft) incorporating a patio area with this property further benefitting from a garage to the side which could easily be converted, subject to planning permission, in order to increase the living accommodation if so desired.

Internally this wonderful family home enjoys elegant well-proportioned accommodation retaining many original features of its era laid out over two floors. At the ground floor an entrance porch leads to the welcoming reception hall with a large understairs cloak cupboard, two very fine interconnecting reception rooms both of which enjoy a lovely private outlook both to the front and rear. Standing in the lounge to the front looking out through the bay window it is hard to imagine you are only 6.5km from St. Stephen’s Green. To the rear there is a kitchen/breakfast room which leads through to the living room which is well proportioned with a utility room connecting through to a shower room. On the first floor there are four particularly large double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

This is without doubt a highly sought after family orientated location serviced with an excellent selection of local shops, a superb offering of delis and boutique eateries in both Rathgar village and Churchtown not to mention a wide selection of primary and secondary schools that include Rathgar Junior School, Rathgar National School and Zion Parish School, The High School, Stratford College, St Mary’s College, Terenure College and Alexandra College.
