Charming Edwardian redbrick for €650,000
Four-bed end-of-terrace house with period features
Wilfrid Road is a quiet Edwardian redbricked street just off Kenilworth Park and minutes from its busy intersection with Kenilworth Square.
The end-of-terrace house has lovely period charm starting with the leaded glass panels in the front door. The ground floor has high ceilings with ceiling coving and architrave in the hall.
The owners rewired, replumbed and added a new kitchen in 2002 when they moved in.
Matching wooden fireplaces in the interconnecting reception rooms have been painted black, while slide-back doors link the bow-windowed sittingroom to the livingroom.
They added a door which leads directly from the sittingroom into the breakfastroom and the small working kitchen which is hidden from view behind the original chimney breast.
The kitchen overlooks a deceptively large paved rear garden which is 18m (61ft) long with vehicular rear access.
From the breakfastroom there’s access to a sheltered, sandstone paved patio.The floor space is 131sq m (1,410sq ft) and the property is asking €650,000 through agent Felicity Fox.
There are four bedrooms, three on the first floor and a fourth on the hall return. In 2006, the owners divided the original bedroom that was the width of the front of the house into two adequate-sized rooms and put a new roof on the property.
In the fourth bedroom, a single, currently used as an office, there is pull-down ladder access to a small and secret attic space that will delight a child or teenager.
The converted space has excellent floor-to-ceiling heights and an exposed brick chimney breast.
The house has an E1 BER rating.
To the rear is a large commercial building currently used by Dublin City council’s clampers. It would be worth investigating what the medium to longterm plans for this site are.
