Rusheen is a charming detached residence situated on beautifully maintained grounds of approx. 0.62 acres with the benefit of a tennis court, discreetly located on Westminster Road just a stone’s throw from Foxrock Village. Offering significant scope as a family home, Rusheen benefits from full planning permission to be substantially re-built / extended to a state of the art, A-Rated, luxurious family home of approx. 521 sq. m / 5,600 sq. ft. (planning ref: D21A/0908) as required. A feasibility study by NODE Architects for a smaller project (approx. 390 sq. m / 4,197 sq. ft.) is also available by request.
Presently, the well-proportioned accommodation extends to approx. 319 sq. m / 3,433 sq. ft. and comprises an entrance hall opening to the left into a study, which in turn opens through to the formal dining room overlooking the back garden. Adjacent is the kitchen / breakfast room fitted with wall and floor mounted pine units, marble worktop and terracotta floor. Off the kitchen is a well-appointed Norman Pratt cedar wood conservatory opening onto the southerly facing garden. The newer wing of the house provides for a spacious inner hallway, a formal drawing room with bow window overlooking the garden and a living / TV room. There are two separate bedroom wings on the first floor. One accessed from the original part of the house and the second from the newer wing. The original side has two double bedrooms with a separate shower room and WC. The newer wing has three double bedrooms with a family bathroom. The main bedroom is dual aspect with an en-suite bathroom.
The gardens are a very special feature of this delightful property extending to approximately .62 acres / .25 ha. They provide shade and privacy with a distinctive Arbutus tree to the front carefully screening the house from the main road. Electric gates open to a gravelled driveway with double detached garage and parking for several cars. The rear garden opens out to a magnificent informal, private country style garden. An irregular gravelled path meanders purposefully to reveal the tennis court discreetly tucked away to the back of the garden.
