A late Victorian terraced redbrick near the Portobello end of South Circular Road, renovated more than a decade ago, combines period details upstairs – deep coving, sash windows with original shutters, cast-iron fireplaces, original wooden floors – with contemporary comforts, such as the large kitchen/diningroom downstairs.

Number 28 Curzon Street, a 132sq m (1,420sq ft) three-bed, is for sale through the Felicity Fox agency with an asking price of €750,000. The house, a rental for the past 10 years, has been refreshed and repainted for sale, and is in good condition.

The kitchen at 28 Curzon Street, Dublin 8 has grey-painted kitchen units, wooden countertops and a Smeg cooker with a five-ring gas hob

Five granite steps lead up to the front door, topped with a fanlight, opening into a hallway with a wooden floor and a centre rose. Accommodation upstairs includes a livingroom on the left and two double bedrooms; the smaller could could be used as a home office. The livingroom has a cast-iron fireplace, centre rose, polished wooden floor and shutters on the sash window.

Downstairs, an extension has created a large, open-plan kitchen/diningroom, made bright by a large box picture window with a deep window seat looking into the back garden.

There’s good storage underneath the seat, as well as in the island unit. Grey-painted kitchen units are a nice contrast to the wooden countertops. A Smeg cooker has a five-ring gas hob.

The owner who renovated the house was a musician, and the large timber-floored bedroom downstairs is wired for surround sound; a large walk-in wardrobe has fitted shelves. The family bathroom is also wired for sound, and there’s a separate shower room with toilet.

The back garden has a cobblelocked patio and raised beds with mature plants. There’s residents’ disc parking on the street outside.
