A typical two-up, two-down house in Harold’s Cross is new to the market through Sherry FitzGerald. Number 4 Darley Street is for sale for €385,000. With 62sq m (670sq ft), the owners have opened up the terraced house to create as much space as they could so the front door opens directly from the street into the living room and from there the layout of the house is clear. There are two pine doors at the far end of the room – one opens into the kitchen, the other into the shower room.

The open staircase at the rear of the room leads up to two bedrooms, a good double to the front and a large single – or small double – to the back. The hot press is in this second bedroom.

Plenty of storage

The kitchen has been fitted relatively recently with new units – as many as might be found in a larger kitchen but it means there is plenty of storage, a good feature in a small house. A roof window is a smart addition for the sunlight it throws into the room and the back door is partially glazed. There is a small yard to the rear.

Updating the small shower room included installing underfloor heating.

For buyers, a key attraction is going to be the location. Just off Harold’s Cross Road and in a small warren of similar Victorian artisan dwellings, Darley Street is a walk or a short cycle to the city centre. The house is in move-in condition, another aspect that appeals to many buyers. A walk in the other direction – away from the canal – leads to the continually improving selection of shops and cafes on Harold’s Cross Road and a well-kept railinged public park, now the location of a vibrant annual local festival.
