DescriptionSherry FitzGerald is delighted to present to the market 81 New Cabra Road.
This truly exquisite period property provides a rare opportunity to purchase a unique family home located in the heart of Dublin 7. Behind the façade of this magnificent Victorian red brick residence lies a home of exceptional quality, charm and character. There is a wonderful, homely feel about this special house, utilising every inch of available space with emphasis placed on presentation, design and tasteful décor. This property has been refurbished extensively and sensitively since 2015. Many of the original features have been retained and restored, and blend seamlessly with renovations ensuring modern standards and comfort. Internally, the gracious accommodation starts with an impressive and welcoming entrance hallway with guest bathroom. Off the hall, there are two well-portioned interconnecting reception rooms with the original fireplaces providing a focal point. Steps lead to a kitchen/breakfast room with an extensive array of units, polished granite worktops, and a solid fuel stove with access to a large utility/pantry room. Upstairs on the return, where an elevated stained-glass window throws light into the stairwell and landings areas, is a double bedroom and family bathroom. There is a large landing for additional storage and three double bedrooms on the first floor.
The rear garden is extremely private and beautifully landscaped creating a tranquil feel. It is a lovely area for al fresco dining, young families or simply relaxing. There is a large garage with access to a vehicular rear laneway and a separate home office with guest wc. To the front, there is a pedestrian path to the front door bordered by wrought iron railings, and a garden with established planting and mature trees.
New Cabra Road is a couple of minutes' walk from Phibsborough Village and Stoneybatter, with an abundance of cafes, bars, shops and amenities. There are several national and secondary schools within easy reach as well as Grangegorman DIT campus. Commuting to the city centre is a leisurely stroll, there are many bus routes passing through Phibsborough including the 46A, with the Phibsborough green-line LUAS stop only a 2 minute walk away. Only 20 minutes' walk to both the Phoenix Park and the Botanic Gardens, and a gentle stroll into town.
All in all - an enviable purchase! This elegant property is the perfect choice for those seeking a mature residence in what is undoubtedly one of Dublin's most central locations.
