No 44 is a unique home, truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a distinguished and most elegant red brick period residence situated on this stylish street where almost all the property has been refurbished in recent years. Situated off Berkeley Road and within walking distance to the LUAS and to the city centre, it is convenient to shops, schools and hospitals. There will be a Metro North station on Berkeley Road, providing direct access to the airport.
The two large reception rooms with 4 metre high ceilings and period shutters create the solid core of this 1870s red brick house. The property’s delightful and most charming accommodation is complimented by a substantial private rear space of 15 metres offering plenty of potential to extend, with rear pedestrian access to a lane. Blessington Basin is within minutes’ walk.
The late owner, Mary Henry, an artist and novelist, who lived through two pandemics to the grand old age of 105 spent many happy years working from home. With the reception rooms having large windows and the back reception room having north facing light suitable for painting, she happily painted and penned novels for nearly thirty years. Her best known novel ‘Death on the Circuit’, a racy thriller, was written under a pseudonym Hilary Claire. She also photographed, curating extensive output into one of her last books ‘The River Shannon’ while publishing under her own label, ‘Conna Press’.
Over the decades, Geraldine Street has matured into a cosmopolitan street, with the literary and arty set complimented by a very engaged residents association. The generous existing space of three reception rooms with a double bedroom on the return allows a purchaser to use the front reception room as a double bedroom making two reception rooms and two double bedrooms, with an upstairs WC accessible for the double on the return. Subject to some modernisation and decoration, and with the new owners personal stamp, the 85 sqm / 915 sqft will be ready for living in and working from home. Some may wish to undertake a more extensive refurbishment project, similar to many on the Street. Indeed, there is no lack of inspiration to draw from in the neighbours' homes and gardens.
