DescriptionSituated on an elevated position amongst a row of beautifully maintained Edwardian homes, no. 94 Old Cabra Road is a prime example of the type. The property has been very well maintained, extended and decorated with great style. The current owners have been careful to retain all the original features such as fireplaces, polished wooden floors and ceiling covings which combine very well with the ultra modern kitchen extension to the rear. The property also benefits from plenty of off street parking to the front, a large garage and a very large and private rear garden which extends to over 100ft approx.
The accommodation comprises a porch with 9ft high, bespoke arched steel door leading to a lovely entrance hallway with polished wooden floor and useful guest w.c. The reception rooms are interconnecting with the living room retaining the original fireplace with polished wooden floor and a bay window with stain glass inset. Sliding doors lead to the dining room, also with polished wooden floor, original fireplace and fitted bookcases. French doors lead to the garden and a door leads to the kitchen which is an incredibly bright space designed in 2007 by architects Lawrence & Long Architects. The Schmidt kitchen features a great range of floor and wall units with a Corian island and integrated appliances. There is plenty of room for a dining table and seating area with fantastic views of the large patio area and garden beyond. Upstairs there are four bedrooms - three doubles and a single room currently used as a home office. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.
Well set back from the road, the front garden has a gravel drive which allows parking for a number of cars with garage and side pedestrian access. The rear garden is fabulous, extends to over 100ft and is extremely private with a very large patio area laid in granite with steps down to a mature lawn area with mature hedging, trees and flower beds.
The location is superb close to the bustling village of Stoneybatter, a couple of minutes' walk away. The area is renowned for its many artisan shops, supermarkets, delis, bakeries, cafes and restaurants. One of the main attractions of the area is the fabulous Phoenix Park which is a mere 15 minutes' walk away. For those working in the city centre it is a pleasant stroll, with public transport also available at Heuston Station, the LUAS stops at Phibsborough, Broadstone and Grangegorman and numerous bus routes while the M50 allows easy access to the Airport. An exciting development in the area is the new Technological University Dublin (TUD) campus at Grangorman with lovely green open spaces, including playground accessible to the public.
