When the owners of 46 Edenvale Road bought the Ranelagh redbrick in 2009, it had already been renovated and extended. They were at the time viewing the property next door, number 44, a house which needed considerable work when, looking over the wall they spotted the smart extension in number 46 and that it was a house where the renovation work was all done.

It wasn’t openly on the market – an agent had it “quietly” for sale, which can happen when a seller is putting out feelers without committing to putting a sales board on the railings – and so, some negotiations later, the current owners moved in.

Whoever buys number 46 will also be attracted by the “all done” nature of the house. Recently the owners have redone the bathroom and en suite and updated the decor. Buyers will have nothing to do.

It is a typical semi-detached Victorian redbrick and its layout is much as it was originally. There are two interconnecting reception rooms – the owners have removed, but kept, the folding doors that divided the rooms which new owners might reinstate.

Underfloor heating

Where the kitchen extension is different from others in similar houses is that it is not built on to the back reception room – a smart move as that can make that room dark and corridor-like. Instead the kitchen is an appealing light-filled room with extensive glazing and with a sliver of an extension to the side bringing light in from all directions. With underfloor heating, it has a smart, modern Bulthaup kitchen – an indication of the money spent on the house – fitted with Siemens appliances.

Upstairs – clever storage has been built in under the stairs – there is a double bedroom with en suite in the return and on up again two more double bedrooms, the largest running the width of the front. The attic has been converted – a bespoke staircase is cleverly built on to the top landing – and it is a large bright room used as a home office.

The rear garden is small and patio-style and there is a small railinged front garden. Parking is on the street. Edenvale is a one-way street made narrow by the cars parking on either side – and number 46 is at the top of the road at the Albany Road end. Sherry FitzGerald is the agent and it is seeking €1.2 million for nattic storage.
