This charming villa on Pleasants Street, named after philanthropist Thomas Pleasants, is about 15 minutes walk from St Stephen's Green and five minutes from the Harcourt Luas line.

The 129sqm (1,389sq ft) house is selling for €650,000 through estate agent Lisney.

Set on two levels, the living accommodation is downstairs and the three bedrooms are upstairs.

The main bedroom, to the front of the property, has high ceilings with a black fireplace. The room is bright and airy thanks to full height sash windows.

Two further bedrooms complete this floor, the smaller of which comes with an en suite which is part of a recently built extension.

Downstairs in the extension, a warm timber kitchen with glass mosaic splash-backs, has free-standing units and access to a compact utility and French windows leading to a small patio that would welcome a few plants.

A concertina oak door cleverly closes access between the kitchen and dining areas saving much space in the narrow hallway. Adjacent is a mosaic tiled wet-room used as the family bathroom.

There is a Scandinavian feel to the decor downstairs; with lots of simple lines, pale woods and recessed lights.

The dining room and interconnecting living room are bright thanks to the use of glass internal doors which maximises the light flowing through the property.

A good-sized living room has an open fireplace, maple floors and original shutters on sash windows. A small porch on this level has outside access to a neat front garden.

No 2 Pleasants Street would suit a couple or small family who enjoy the proximity to the city and nearby bustling Camden Street, but who also treasure a sense of calm.
