As dream homes go, it’s hard to beat a beautifully restored period property, with modern decor and plenty of outside space in one of the most sought after locations in the country.

Hermitage, which is located in the exclusive suburb of Foxrock ticks a lot of boxes in terms of desirability and style while still managing to retain the look and feel of a family home.

The five-bed house stretches to an impressive 435sq.m. (4,700sq.ft.) and is ideal for entertaining, or cosy nights in thanks to an abundance of reception rooms, dining spaces, a high-end kitchen, but also the addition of a wine room no less.

What makes the Hermitage unique is that the original Edwardian property has been carefully restored and extended and sits on half an acre of land.

The house is set well back from the road behind electric gates.

Once you enter the Hermitage you find yourself in an inviting and spacious hallway which comes with an electric fire ideal for warming you up as you come in from the cold on winter evenings.

Leading off the hallway is the first of two main reception rooms.

One is tastefully decorated in muted cream tones and features a bespoke fireplace surround which dominates the room. Just across from that is the large grey TV room which is perfect for family nights at home.

Walking along the corridor you find yourself in the open plan kitchen/dining space which has been laid out to maximise the light.

The dining area has space to accommodate eight but can easily be extended out for special occasions.

Behind that sits the family reception room which overlooks the garden and is ideal for informal get-togethers.

The kitchen has been laid out with super stylish, Woodale units while the large island is topped with marble.

Just off the kitchen is one of the Hermitage’s most impressive features, the state of the art wine fridge which has space to store and chill dozens of bottles of vino.

The ground floor also features a large utility room and a study that looks out onto the garden and the first of the five bedrooms and is en-suite.

Moving upstairs, you come across the four double bedrooms.

Each one is ensuite and comes with hand-fitted wardrobes. One of the top-selling points is the garden space which wraps around the house.

To the front is the gravel driveway which is boarded by carefully manicured lawns and flower beds. Running along the side of the property is another spacious lawn that is planted with trees for extra privacy.

To the rear of the house are more lawns that have been offset with a variety of fountains and water features and a patio space for barbecues and garden parties.

The Hermitage is just 12km from St. Stephen’s Green and a short stroll from Foxrock village and is on the market with Lisney for €3,795,000.
