Property Description:

Beautiful four bedroom split level villa style house which enjoys an enviable situation beside the Camac River and Kilmainham Gaol.

To the front there is a landscaped garden with steps up to the front door and steps down to the garden level entrance. An attractive archway frames the main entrance where there is a storm porch and glass panelled front door. On entering there is a welcoming hallway with the main reception rooms situated on the left hand side. The rooms are connected through double doors, above which is a stained glass window creating a unique light between the two rooms. The sunny front reception room features a large bay window. The second reception room is lit through a sash window that has uninterrupted views of Kilmainham Gaol and mature trees along the river bank. Both rooms feature ornate fireplaces, the original wooden floors and attractive coving around the ceilings.

From the hallway, steps lead up to the attic which has been converted into a stylish bedroom. This room features exposed brickwork walls and ceiling joists. Velux windows look out to Kilmainham Gaol and the Camac River valley.

Downstairs there are three bedrooms and a return that accommodates the bathroom and the kitchen. The bathroom is a stylish space with a cast iron fireplace, painted wooden floors and a free standing bath. The bedrooms are comfortable rooms with plenty of charm. The original fireplaces and wooden floors are featured in two of the rooms and large sash windows allow light into all three. Steps lead down to the kitchen, which is punctuated by an under stairs seating area. The kitchen is traditional in style and features wood panelling and a Belfast sink. The room is large enough to accommodate a dining space that looks out to the back garden.

Glass panelled double doors access the back garden, where there is a decked terrace that is an ideal place to relax and entertain alike. The garden itself is a wonderful oasis with a pedestrian gate that leads down to the river bank. There is lane access to the rear with off street parking available.

The house is well situated in one of Dublin most popular city centre suburbs. Local amenities include The Royal Hospital Kilmainham, which is home to the Irish Museum of Modern Art and stunning walled gardens. The Memorial Gardens are a short walk away.
