St Alban’s villa an entertaining place for €525,000
Three-bedroom terraced redbrick house in Dublin 8 for with a bright kitchen and some period features
Number 19 is a mid-terrace, split-level, villa-style redbrick just off the South Circular Road in Dublin 8. Situated through the Clanbrassil Street intersection, the road connects to Blackpitts and The Tenters and is asking €525,000 through agents Sherry FitzGerald.
At hall level, there is a lovely square-shaped sittingroom with high ceilings, simple coving and an open fire.
The stairs split, descending down to an office area with a cast-iron open fire and leading on through to the large and bright L-shaped vanilla-gloss kitchen.
The cooking part of the kitchen is a galley-style set-up, running along the length of the boundary wall with roof lights and a wall of glazing helping to illuminate the space. Double doors open out on to a small courtyard that is east-facing.
At the end of the galley is a good-sized eat-in area with room for a table that can accommodate six to eight. Double doors lead outside and there is lots of built-in storage, helping this family home to feel streamlined.
A double bedroom, the one used by the parents, is also at this level. It has banks of storage that fill two walls. Double doors open directly out to the courtyard. The family bathroom is adjacent.
The parents moved their bedroom downstairs so they could entertain without waking the kids. This part of the house is ideal for having people over.
The landscaped courtyard is set out in pebbles with a sunny patio area. It is completely private and ideal for occasional al-fresco dining but more so provides a smoking area for dinner guests and allows them to move and mingle through the house.
Upstairs on the first floor there are two bedrooms, a sizeable double with a cast-iron fireplace and a single. They share a shower en suite with a door leading from either bedroom into the bathroom.
To the front is a neat railed garden with pebbles. There is also pedestrian access to the rear. Parking is on-street.
