DescriptionDiscerning house-hunters are in for a treat with the arrival of no.51 Griffith Avenue, Drumcondra to the market. This handsome double fronted terrace residence has been fully renovated and refurbished (2009) from top to bottom inside and out. Attention to detail sympathetic to the period character of the property is evident throughout with quality finishes and fittings including bespoke custom-made joinery and windows in addition to the restoration of original cast-iron fireplaces.
A spacious south-facing open plan kitchen/dining room that spans the full width of the house was created as a result of a modern extension to the original house. The refurbishment of downstairs included a generous well-appointed guest toilet and a dedicated utility cupboard just off the inner hall. Upstairs, bedroom no.3 has been repurposed into a home office/study and has also provided room for a staircase set off the main landing into a converted attic. This enchanting space extends to c.17.3 m2/184 sqft and features a dormer window that enjoys views of the capital's skyline, Dublin mountains and Sugar Loaf in Wicklow. An ensuite shower room was also incorporated into the converted attic.
Overall, the living accommodation extends to c.116m2 /1,249 sqft (not including the attic space of 17.3m2 / 184 sqft) at ground and first floor level. The front facing reception rooms overlook the leafy tree-lined avenue and sit either side of an inviting entrance hall. Both reception rooms have generous dimensions and feature high ceilings and varnished floorboards. An inner hall with guest toilet off leads to the extended kitchen/dining room which features a modern fitted kitchen with island unit and granite counter. Upstairs, the front facing master bedroom and bedroom no. 2 occupy the first floor along with a well-appointed family bathroom and home office/study (original 3rd bedroom).
Residents can enjoy a wealth of amenities on their doorstep including a choice of well-regarded primary and secondary schools across the road and along Griffith Avenue itself.
