Description'A wonderful fusion of period features, contemporary style, generous living and bedroom space; achieved through great attention to detail, clever design and skill.'
19 Stamer Street is unquestionably one of the most exciting and impressive properties to come to the market in Portobello this year. A distinctive and singularly attractive 4-bedroom Victorian residence of mellow-aged brick, dating from the late 1800s, it stands proud and handsome on its terrace connecting Harrington Street and South Circular Road with Lennox Street. Combining a striking collaboration of period features and detailing with a complementary contemporary specification, this beautiful city residence is sure to impress and captivate.
Reclaimed from 'bedsits', when purchased 16 years ago, this superb property has undergone a meticulous restoration and renovation. The tastefully and cleverly configured accommodation, which is arranged over four levels, now totals an impressive 2,852sq.ft. / 265sq.m. approx.. It offers the perfect balance of generous living and bedroom accommodation, where no room nor nook are left without purpose and function. The private rear garden, an oasis of calm and greenery is a veritable outside room.
The light-filled, generously proportioned accommodation flows incredibly well. Distinctive clean lines are evident through use of the same high quality materials throughout - Oak herringbone and wide plank flooring, polished concrete floors and marble tiling. All of these materials complement and enhance the high ceilings and original features to include fireplaces, cornicing etc., whilst highlighting the overall splendour of this wonderful home.
Family-centric in design and configuration over its 4 levels and 3-storey return, the heart of this home is very much the open plan kitchen/dining/family room - a practical day-to-day living space with contemporary kitchen, polished concrete floor, 2 wood-burning stoves and direct access to the landscaped front and rear gardens, not to mention utility room as well. At the piano nobile (hall level), two interconnecting reception rooms truly display the grandeur of this classical home and are used daily as a living room and music room. Whilst the return houses the much-needed home office/study. The first and second floors including returns are home to 4 double bedrooms (main ensuite), shower room and bathroom.
Home to a veritable mix of mainly Victorian residences - big and small - Portobello, one of the city's most sought-after districts, is popular with young and old, and families, residential and commercial tenants, artists and accountants! Local eateries, bakeries, coffee houses, places of worship, schools, gyms not to mention the picturesque walkways of the Grand Canal and the hustle and bustle of the Camden Quarter are all on your doorstep.
