There was a time when Percy Lane was only used as a shortcut for bicycle couriers traversing Dublin 4 and Dublin 2. Linking Haddington Road to Percy Place, on the banks of the Grand Canal, the cross-shaped throughway is home to a range of mews house styles, many of which were built in the 1970s and 1980s.

The landmark buildings there now are at One Percy Place, a blackened zinc-clad terrace of three three-storey houses designed by Odos Architects and brought to market in 2015 with prices from €1.295million. These A-rated homes were sizeable for the area, too, measuring from 174sq m/1,873sq ft.

Across the street stands another modern house, less eye-catching but substantially altered since it was first built in 1977.

Last August it was purchased by two builders for €995,000, according to the property price register. They extended its footprint to 119sq m/1,284sq ft, adding 16sq m of space and turning the three-bed property into an A-rated home.

The house now has underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, beneath an overlay of engineered timber. The kitchen, set to the front, is a good size and has smart Siematic walnut-stained below-counter units and a bank of floor-to-ceiling presses to house the fridge freezer and ovens. It includes a long island with industrial-style pendant lighting overhead. The glacier-white countertops are made of Corian.

Pocket sliding doors lead from the kitchen into the dining area and on through to the lounge, where folding glass doors open out to a west-facing patio, where there is also pedestrian rear access. This is a wide room, lit naturally from above by skylights.

Upstairs are three bedrooms. The main bedroom has a shower en suite and a light well to bring in natural light. The other two are doubles and all have internally lit wardrobes. The family bathroom is huge, with a separate shower and bath.

The property is seeking €1.695 million through agent O’Mahony Property Team.

Two years ago, when No 58, a 133sq m A-rated property came to market, it was seeking €925,000 and sold for that price in April 2016, according to the property price register.

There is off-street parking for up to two cars to the front.
