DescriptionBloomfield Avenue is a wonderful tree-lined avenue of handsome Victorian homes in the heart of Portobello. No.11 is ideally positioned on the west side of the road benefiting from a sunny southerly and westerly rear garden and rear vehicular access. Behind the classic red brick exterior belies a warm interior where many original period details have been retained, in need of modernisation.
At ground floor there is a welcoming entrance hall with a neatly concealed guest wc located to the rear under the stairs. Two generous interconnecting reception rooms have an abundance of character and offer picturesque views over the mature front and rear gardens. A large picture window to the rear of the kitchen and breakfast room provides a wonderful backdrop and brings the outside in. The lovely rear garden is an idyllic oasis in the heart of Portobello - a central path leads through the mature trees and shrubbery towards the rear garage that provides off-street parking and excellent storage space. There is further potential to convert the garage into a home office/garden room/extra living accommodation (subject to planning permission).
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and a main family bathroom. The impressive main bedroom is to the front and spans the width of the house with two large sash windows overlooking Bloomfield Avenue, while the second and third bedrooms overlook the rear garden.
Superbly located within the historic limits of the city and long since regarded as one of Dublin 8's premier roads, Bloomfield Avenue enjoys a very high level of amenity. The trees planted by the City Council in the early nineties give the avenue a uniquely formal air. The Grand Canal at the top of the road has a pedestrian path and a cycle path, which run from Portobello to Shelbourne Road and the Grand Canal Basin. The Grafton Street area is less than 2km away on foot, there are several Dublin Bike stations nearby, as is the Luas at Charlemont & Harcourt Street making travel around the city and further afield an ease.
