Pied-a-terre with design flare for €395,000
Three-bedroom terraced house off Mespil Road with private rear parking
Just off Mespil Road, by the canal and about 10m from Leeson Street, the location of Sussex Terrace is hard to beat.
Number 5 is a three-bed asking €395,000 through Savills. A 10-minute walk from the city centre and three minutes from Baggot Street, it is centrally located without the pitfalls of heavy traffic and late-night footfall.
For what is a relatively small property, number 5 makes good use of its 103sq m (1,108sq ft). An entrance hall opens into a small front study to the left. Behind it, a small bathroom has been renovated with a Scandinavian-style wooden step leading up to a corner bath.
To the right is the front livingroom with sash window, original shuttering and a stove. It opens on to the rear kitchen, which is bright and airy, with Shaker-style maple units and built-in bench seating.
French doors from the kitchen open on to a shared rear gravel driveway, with space for one car.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, two with walk-in wardrobes. Though all three are potential double rooms, the bedroom to the front suffers as a result of the house’s design – an angled wall resulting in some wasted space.
