'Ianthe', Ballinacurra Road, is one of the finest family homes currently available inside Limericks city limits. Carefully constructed and meticulously maintained by the same family since the 1950's, Ianthe's condition is striking, consisting of two superbly maintained storeys over a potential third at garden/basement level. Positioned opposite the Victorian red-brick terraces of the Ballinacurra Road, Ianthe is likely to tempt buyers at all corners of the market; offering mid-century character, proportions and external space not found in new build homes.
The historic Ballinacurra Road is set adjacent to Limerick's South Circular Road, connecting the suburb of Dooradoyle with O'Connell Avenue. Centrally positioned between the city and county, Ballinacurra Road offers an idyllic setting in which to establish your family home. Within walking distance of the wealth of residential amenities afforded by the City Centre, the area offers immediate transport links to the wider Limerick region, Crescent Shopping Centre and University Hospital Limerick. A handful of Limerick's most renowned educational institutions are set within minutes by car or on foot, namely Mary Immaculate College, The Model School, St Clements College and Laurel Hill Secondary School.
Ianthe's gated grounds extend from the Ballinacurra Road toward the greenery of Portland Park at the property's rear boundary wall. A sweeping driveway leads past a manicured front lawn to a private courtyard and carpark, with private vehicular access also available via a secure, residents only laneway to the rear of the site.
Internally, a porch entranceway leads through to the main hall, complete with an under-stair guest bathroom. To the right is the family room, the first of two grand reception spaces on this level; complete with an open feature fire and large bay window set toward the front lawn. To the rear, the property's principle reception room has been superbly extended - now a double-length drawing room suited to dining and entertaining in large numbers.
The open-plan kitchen/breakfast room has been upgraded in recent years, refitted with granite worktops and fully fitted wood units. Features include sliding pantry cabinets and fully integrated appliances, designed around an original cream AGA at the heart of the kitchen (complimented by a modern AFG electric hob).
On the first floor there are four excellent bedrooms, in addition to a completely refitted contemporary bathroom. The main bedroom is set to the property's front, its bay window framing the neighbouring Victorian terraces, while the rear bedrooms offer an elevated viewpoint over the private gardens and parkland beyond.
