Tudor Road, one of Ranelagh’s more intimate and well-lived in roads, has some great gardens. Number 13’s sheltered garden certainly fits that mould.

The vendors have lived in Number 13 for 48 happy years, benefiting from ivy and trees, montbretia, lavender and a lawn. However, with the family grown, it’s time to move on.

The house has the rare advantage of having a Luas stop and a small park at just a 50m trot from its rear garage. Stepping out of that and almost on to the Luas has a surreal and delightful feel to it.

In walk-in condition, this is a bright, high-ceilinged house, mostly painted in shades of cream, its original features a distinctive and intact part of the décor.

The floor area covers 149sq m (1,604sq ft), and includes four bedrooms, a family shower room, interconnecting drawing- and dining-rooms and a kitchen/family-room. Agent Sherry FitzGerald is asking €950,000.

The bright kitchen is located at the rear and has hardwood worktops and a Belfast sink. It leads to a sunroom-style family-room, with walls of windows overlooking the garden and side-decking. 

Sliding doors

The pastel-coloured formal reception rooms, comfortably contemporary without the loss of original features or style, have sliding doors, ceiling coving, picture rails, a marble fireplace, a large front window and a glass-panelled rear door.

Pale tiles in the hall make the most of the light and there is a guest toilet and cloakroom in a lobby.

A one-time double bedroom has been divided to make two front bedrooms, both with windows, the larger a mellow space with polished floorboards. A third bedroom overlooks the rear garden and has fitted wardrobes.

The family shower room and a bedroom with a cast-iron fireplace are on the return.

There is off-street parking to the front of the house and vehicular access to the garage.
