DescriptionNumber 20 Windsor Terrace is a most handsome Victorian mid-terrace family home, nicely positioned on this popular and well-regarded residential road with impressive views over the Grand Canal. Arranged over two levels, the property retains many original period features to include ceiling coving, window shutters and original fireplaces. This warm and inviting home has been in the same ownership for over 70 years and has been lovingly cared for and maintained throughout this time. Although now in need of modernisation, there is wonderful potential to the discerning buyer to create a beautiful home of distinction.
Internally, the accommodation extends to approximately 149 sq.m. / 1,603 sq.ft approx. and provides a good balance of both living and bedroom space. The ground floor comprises a spacious (6ft wide approx.) entrance hallway with feature high ceilings, an elegant drawing room with double doors to dining room, both with feature original fireplaces, a kitchen with utility area and a shower room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, the main spanning the width of the property with two windows overlooking the Grand Canal. The property is further enhanced by its walled rear garden, offering potential to extend, if so desired (subject to planning permission).
To the front, the railed garden is laid out mainly in lawn and is bordered by shrubbery with pedestrian access to front. To the rear, the low maintenance walled garden is laid out mainly in concrete with a shed providing additional storage.
The location is second to none, ideally positioned in the heart of fashionable Portobello with an enviable outlook over the banks of Grand Canal. Easy access is afforded to all local amenities to include cafes, restaurants and food stores, to name but a few. St Stephens Green and the Camden Quarter is within a gentle stroll. The Luas green line at Charlemont and Harcourt is also closeby as is the Dublin bike stations at Grantham Street and Portobello, making the car a luxury as opposed to a necessity. Residents of the locality benefit from on street residential disc parking.
Viewing of this wonderful home is highly recommended.
