Description

Hunters Estate Agent is truly honoured to present ‘Hermitage’ to the market. A magnificent 5 bed detached family home, sitting on c. 0.45 acre of manicured gardens, nestled neatly on the corner of Westminster and Hainault Road in the heart of Foxrock.

This superbly appointed family home, originally constructed in c.1906 retains many features of the Edwardian era including high ceilings, ornate cornicing, porthole windows and fireplaces, to name but a few and has been meticulously maintained by its present owners over the years. ‘Hermitage’ extends to a very generous 342sq.m/ 3,681 sq.ft and exudes charm and elegance both inside and out while providing generous and comfortable family accommodation.

The property is approached via a private gated entrance. An entrance porch with period tiled flooring leads to a large reception hall which provides a warm welcome and enjoys period features aplenty. A gracious drawing room, dining room and family room are located off the hallway, all boasting period fireplaces and ornate cornice work. There is a large light filled kitchen / breakfast room which offers plenty of storage space, all modern conveniences and a central island. There is a utility room off the kitchen area. A back hall provides access to a guest suite, incorporating a double bedroom with bay window and ensuite bathroom.

A sweeping staircase leads up to the first floor. Four bedrooms and the family bathroom radiate from a large bright and airy landing. The master suite incorporates two walk-in wardrobes and an impressive ensuite bathroom. Bedroom two also enjoys an ensuite shower room.

‘Hermitage’ sits proudly on c. 0.45 acres of landscaped gardens, superbly maintained and a true garden lovers’ paradise.
