IT’S NOT NEWS that the area of Foxrock is where you’ll find some of the most expensive family homes on the market. This leafy suburb of Dublin 18 is often dripping in luxury when it comes to houses that enjoy the proportions of stately homes without the draughts and BER exemptions.
Waverley is a huge home on Westminster Road that was built in 1999. However, it was extensively upgraded in 2006 and enjoys a healthy BER of B1 making it cosy even if the floor area is a whopping 698 m². It seems like no cost has been spared, so the next owners will have very little to do when it comes to renovating. This is bound to be music to their ears especially because Waverley is now on the market for €6,750,000.
A seven-bed home with just as many bathrooms, it stands on one acre that is well landscaped and home to many beautiful outdoor features.
The luxury continues behind the bay-fronted red brick facade. This is evident as soon as you set foot inside the entrance hall with its elegant staircase, limestone fireplace and solid oak flooring.
From this large hall, a drawing room connects to a dining room through double doors. The east and south facing bay windows fill the spaces up with natural light, emphasising the wall panelling and Barovier et Toso chandeliers with matching wall sconces.
The kitchen is also a sight to behold. Designed Mark Wilkinson, this hand painted kitchen is home to a 3.88m long island, a ceramic Belfast sink and appliances by Gaggenau. Off this space is the utility room, which has another Belfast sink and plenty more storage.
