Renovated redbrick with swish extension


DUBLIN 9: €596,000:NUMBER 190 Botanic Avenue, Glasnevin, Dublin 9 is a three-bed end-terrace house with a thorough renovation and extension.

The redbrick property has been made completely contemporary by Anello Architects, whose fine-tuned Italian styling has worked wonders on countering the grey Irish skyscape. Viewed on a wet and overcast day the house felt bright and warm in mood. It measures 115sq m (1,237sq ft) and has an asking price of €596,000 through agent Sherry FitzGerald.

The livingroom leads through original interconnecting doors into a swish and ultra-bright diningroom. Both spaces have original oak fireplaces with tiled inserts and built-in storage. The diningroom sits on one side of an internal glass courtyard making the space incredibly light-filled. French doors lead outside.

Another door takes you into the open-plan kitchen/dining/living room. A pale yellow galley kitchen by Italian outfit, Arrital Cucine, offers lots of counter space and storage. The lavastone worktops and splashbacks contrast well with the soft yellow. More courtyard glazing illuminates the dining area and the main living space has light from two sides.

There is a great sense of flow throughout and there are solid walnut floors underfoot.

The back garden is small but faces south and has rear pedestrian access.

The exterior areas, the back garden and courtyard are both gravelled. The next owner might like to put something more tactile underfoot.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The main bedroom is a good size and one of the other bedrooms is used as a large walk-in wardrobe.

Out front there is off-street parking, essential on this street.
