Galvin Property is delighted to present No. 42 Martin Street to the market. A deceptively large two bedroom period property which has been recently redesigned by an architect. The result is an extended and completely refurbished home finished to an exquisite standard. Stripped back to the bare brick and rebuilt, this property offers all the modern comforts of a new build with a graceful red brick façade in one of South Dublin’s most popular locations. The refurbishment was completed earlier this year and includes re-wiring, re-plumbing, new concrete slab foundation, underfloor insulation, altering the internal area on both floors, new bathroom installed, new insulation and new windows and doors by Munster Joinery. Given the convenient location by the canal in Portobello, the size of the property and in particular the finish, this trendy 'City Pad' will attract homeowners and investors in equal measures.
The accommodation which extends to 89sqm/958sqft has been designed to create a seamless, dual aspect, open plan living / kitchen / dining room downstairs. There is an obvious emphasis on light and space throughout, evident the moment you pass through the hall door. Once you set foot onto the white oak, herringbone, solid wood-flooring which runs throughout the ground floor the tone is set to class and comfort. Although open plan there is a clear distinction between each of the kitchen, living and dining areas. The kitchen is situated to the front of the property and is a real show stopper. The kitchen units are custom fit matte black and tastefully complement the white subway tile, Belfast sink and solid oak countertop. The kitchen is fitted with a range of high end Miele appliances to include integrated oven, induction hob, integrated dishwasher and washer dryer, microwave grill and freestanding fridge freezer. The dining area sits neatly between the kitchen and the living room in the modern extension to the rear. The living room in the extension, with its full length sliding door and exposed brick feature wall, has a New York loft feel and is a great space to chill out in the evenings. This space is connected seamlessly to both the dining area and the garden to the rear yet provides real comfort and privacy when required.
Outside is a west-facing garden that is a sun trap in the summer months. With its stylish louvered fencing and canal aspect it really is a private urban oasis to enjoy year round.
Upstairs the accommodation is bright and quirky with an additional 8/10sqm of floorspace built above an old neighbouring janitors hall allowing for a more generous layout than neighbouring properties on the street. Again the architect’s design cleverly uses light to create a sense of space with a picture window at the top of the stairs a particularly attractive feature. There are two well proportioned double bedrooms and the main bathroom. The canal views from the master bedroom are worth the viewing alone!
Portobello is distinctly popular due to its proximity to the city centre coupled with the local amenities and a real sense of community. Martin Street is situated between the South Circular Road and Portobello Road close to the banks of the Grand Canal. Easily accessible and close to a host of transport facilities including the LUAS, just 1km to St Stephens Green (less than 15 minutes on foot). This two bedroom period property is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet within walking distance of Dublin's central business district and the IT Hub on Barrow St home to Google, Facebook and Twitters European Headquarters.
