Millmount is a warren of redbrick terraced houses just over the Frank Flood bridge in Drumcondra at one of the entrances to Griffith Park, a gorgeous green space that straddles the Tolka river.
Number 13 Millmount Place is a mid-terrace three-bed in the cul de sac. The house was owned and refurbished by architects who maximised the floor space by creating an open-plan downstairs layout before putting the house up for sale in 2004 seeking €445,000.
The current owners bought the 78sq m/840sq ft property in 2014 for €400,000 according to the property price register.
Since then the F Ber-rated property has only changed very slightly and now it’s back on the market seeking €475,0000 through agent SherryFitzGerald.
The property opens into a panelled hall painted a deep marine blue, with a hatch into the kitchen that provides a place to put down keys before entering the open plan area.
The ground floor is a nicely appointed dual-aspect space with the kitchen set to the front with a wall of below-counter units and a marble countertop. The eat-in room is big enough to accommodate a table and its original fireplace has a smart slate surround and hearth.
The living area is roomy enough for two sofas set at right angles to each other and the open fireplace has a slate surround that picks out its original outline. It’s a very simple yet smart way to contemporise one of the property’s remaining original features.
Double doors of iroko hardwood open out to the east-facing rear garden where there is a mature silver birch and a fake back wall to conceal the bins and bikes from view thanks to pedestrian rear access.
On the return is a small room, the property’s third bedroom, that could be a nursery, a very small box room, a home office or an upstairs bathroom.
There are two good doubles on the first floor with the main bedroom spanning the width of the property.
