DescriptionSet on this pretty tree lined street which runs between Lower Drumcondra Road and Jones' Road, no. 73 Fitzroy Avenue is a deceptively spacious red brick residence which has been lovingly cared for over the years by its current owner. The property retains many of the original period features such as polished wooden floors, ceiling covings and fireplaces. The décor is modern with the added benefit of a two storey extension to the rear. There is a very private rear garden offering plenty of space for a dining table.
The accommodation comprises a porch leading to the entrance hall with polished wooden floor, the dining room is to the front and has a beautiful original fireplace as the main focal point, there are fitted bookcases either side of the fireplace. The living room to the rear has a tiled fireplace and a door leading to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of floor and wall units.

Upstairs on the return there is a bathroom and separate shower room while on the first floor both of the double bedrooms have cast iron fireplaces and fitted wardrobes while a third room with fitted wardrobes would make an ideal nursery or home office.
