  • 2 Bed Period House - 147 m² / 1582 ft²


This handsome period bay-windowed red brick is ideally positioned at the bottom of a sleepy cul de sac off the South Circular Road in Kilmainham and enjoys a very private outlook from the front living room. The property, which dates back to 1904, was bought by the current owner in 2004 who then completed a top-to-toe renovation, extension and refurbishment project which has resulted in a real gem of a home in this highly sought after location. The attention to detail of the refurbishment is exemplary with many original features sympathetically restored and some have been put to a completely new use. For example, the granite window sill of the old pantry kitchen is now incorporated as a lovely step detail from the dining area to the new kitchen/breakfast room extension. The exposed brick wall detail to the new extension was specially sourced at the time of build to ensure a strikingly good match to the original brick within the property. The façade is immediately inviting, complemented by a beautiful creeping rose bush, with the accommodation of c. 147 sqm presented in walk-in condition and briefly comprising; entrance hallway, open plan bay-windowed living/dining room, large kitchen/breakfastroom, two double bedrooms, a large bathroom, a walk-in dressing room and a wonderfully large attic room.

The location is excellent, just a five minute walk to the local Luas red line stops at James’s or Rialto, with regular local 68 and 123 bus routes on the South Circular Road and easy access to Heuston Rail Station. The M50 is also convenient offering easy access to Liffey Valley S.C. Grafton Street is within a 30 minute leisurely walk or there is a Dublinbikes station just three minutes away. Other nearby amenities include Kilmainham Memorial Gardens, The Royal Hospital Gardens, Kilmainham Gaol, IMMA and a large selection of exciting new restaurants and cafes. The nearby St. James’s hospital, now the site for the new childrens’ hospital, is a big boost to the area with the proposed renovation of the Guiness Brewery site another development that is hotly anticipated for the locale.
