DescriptionExtended three bedroom / two reception Edwardian residence for sale on the borders of Glasnevin & Drumcondra.
Boasting a coveted location on the North of the City Centre is this spacious redbrick semi-detached family home, which benefits from an extension to the rear, attic conversion and rear vehicular access.
The location of this property will be extremely appealing. Although it is surrounded by a host of amenities, activity and located within a very short distance of the City Centre, Crawford Avenue is a quiet & leafy residential street and offers a wonderful fusion of suburban & city living mixed with the unique stature and features only found in a period property.
No. 14 is set over 4 floors and is fronted by a neat lawned garden with original wrought iron railings. The property is entered via an enclosed entrance porch where the original ornate floor tiling is still intact. The main reception / living room is positioned off the hallway to the front of the house and boasts the original fireplace, bay window with original stained glass insets and double doors, which lead through to a further reception / living room. This room also features the original fireplace and window which looks out to a courtyard area in the rear garden. The spacious kitchen with breakfast dining area and underfloor heating is located to the rear of the house and an extension has been added to the end, which is separated by sliding doors, but could be utilised as an open plan dining area or a Den / Family living area. The extended area also benefits from underfloor heating. A utility room and wet room have also been added to the side of the property off the kitchen, making this an extremely functional property for the busy modern day lifestyle.
At the top of the main stairs is the return level of the original house, which is where the bathroom, WC and one of the bedrooms are located. A small flight of steps lead up from the return landing to the first floor where the further two bedrooms are positioned. Each bedroom includes an original fireplace. Stairs lead from the first floor to the attic level which is currently used as a further bedroom and gaming room.
As well as the array of charming period features and upgrades that the current owner has carried out, one of the appealing highlights of this property will be the vehicular access to the rear, which is accessed via a communal gated laneway for residents. There is a garage at the back of the garden, which leads out to this laneway providing private and secure off street parking. There is also pedestrian access to the side of the property from the front and to the laneway via the garden. The rear garden boasts a South-East facing aspect with cobblelock paving, lawn and mature trees & plants.
One of the main attractions of this impressive address is that you are located so close to both local amenities and the City Centre. The property is close to Glasnevin, Drumcondra & Phibsborough, which as of 6th October 2020 has been hailed “one of the coolest neighbourhood’s in the World”. The Mater and Temple Street Hospitals are within walking distance and the famous Botanic Gardens, Griffith Park and Croke Park are other well-known nearby landmarks.
