No. 5 is at the end of a charming terrace of five Victorian houses built by Samuel Le Bas in the 1870’s. The terrace was tastefully extended in 2016 with the development of four new houses on the site of the former Denmark Hill nursing home on the corner of Leinster Road West and Effra Road.
This recently refurbished, beautifully presented, brick fronted, Victorian residence is ideally located on a quiet road in a much sought-after residential area adjacent to Rathgar and Rathmines in the heart of Dublin 6.
Deceptively spacious, No. 5 is two-storey to the front and three-storey to the rear.
Offering a wonderful combination of period charm and contemporary design with bright, gracious accommodation extending to approximately 1,972 sq.ft. No. 5 is an appealing home with two large reception rooms, kitchen / dining room, utility and guest WC on the ground floor and three large double bedrooms with two bathrooms upstairs. The larger bathroom was originally a fourth bedroom and could easily be returned to that use.
Original features include coving and ornate plasterwork, original plaster arch in the hall, original timber floors, original sliding slash front windows which have been sensitively refurbished and upgraded with double glazed panels, original stairs, shutters and doors.
Thoughtful, modern additions include new Alu-clad, double-glazed rear windows and doors, Stovax inset wood burning stove in the front reception room, low-maintenance rear garden fully paved with Indian sandstone, PhoneWatch monitored fire and intruder alarm system.
Extensively refurbished in 2014 (new roof, heating system, wiring etc.), the house has been tastefully upgraded since then with cast iron radiators, new bathrooms, all timber floors sanded and lacquered, and recent full redecoration.
