  • Price: € 3,000,000
  • Agent: Finnegan Menton
 

Across the leaf-strewn street, agent Finnegan Menton is bringing another period redbrick, number 4 Raglan Road, to the market.

This property is similar in look but smaller in size to number 1, which is also on the market. It has four to five -bedrooms and was refurbished in 2012, the year it is also listed as having sold for €1.85million, according to the property price register.  

One of a pair of semi-detached redbricks, it is set well back from the road, has a similar amount of space to the side of the building as number 1 has, and plenty of off-street parking.

The main entrance is via wide granite steps that lead to a columned and porticoed front door.

The rooms here are light filled with discreet period features such as ceiling cornicing and centre-roses. The drawing room is to the front, off a wide hall where there is a guest toilet and has a narrow set of interconnecting doors leading through to the dining room. Here the ceiling heights extend to 3.3 metres and when the interconnecting doors are open the space is dual aspect. Its big, open grate, will look especially welcoming in the winter months.

The property has been partially staged in a smart contemporary fashion by Upstage Properties. On the return there is a door that takes you down into the garden via a set of granite steps. 

The kitchen is down a level and is set to the rear. It has smart polished granite countertops on its units, which run the length of both walls and match its island.

It opens through to a living room of the same proportions to the drawing room above.  Its key feature is a wood-burning stove set into the exposed granite chimney surround. Ceiling heights at this level are 2.7 metres. There is a separate front entrance with side access available through a large utility room, which adjoins another guest toilet.

A set of steps leads down to another room to the rear that has been staged as the house’s fifth bedroom. French doors lead out to a sunken garden that is paved with a lawn surround. It extends to 60 foot, is east-facing and private thanks to the surrounding mature trees.

But if this room is to be used as a bedroom, it means its occupant will have to traipse up the stairs to the top of the property to make use of the shower room facilities, unless the next owner looks at hiving off some of the generous utility room space to accommodate an ensuite bathroom. 

There are three bedrooms on the top floor, two doubles and a single, with another on the return below.

Extending to 260sq m / 2,798sq ft the Ber exempt property is asking €3million, which amounts to a cost per sq metre of €11,538.
