Walk-in by Croke Park
Description: Refurbished three-bedroom period home adjacent to Croke Park. Agent: Move Home Situated just off Clonliffe Road and within shouting distance of Croke Park, St James’s Avenue is a quaint street of single storey redbrick cottages that are two-storey to the rear. When there isn’t a match or a concert at the stadium, this area is blissfully quiet.
Number 21 is a mid-terrace that was extensively renovated in 2010 when architects Kevin J Hamell & Associates almost doubled its ground floor space, adding a substantial 43 sq m (463 sq ft) of kitchen, dining, living room to the rear and creating a light-filled breakfast room. This space opens out to a garden, laid out in lawn to a circular design with a patio area to the rear that gets the evening sun.
It is a lovely space to spend time in, with the sound of birdsong interrupted occasional by the commuter train from Connolly to Maynooth whooshing past on the nearby railway bridge. There’s a stop at the top of Clonliffe Road, about a seven-minute walk away.
The property is in walk-in condition with dark wenge-coloured laminate f l ooring throughout the ground floor. To the front is a formal sitting room with decent ceiling heights. Its focal point is a cast-iron fireplace with open fire and it has room enough for an L-shaped sofa.
Next to it is the first of the property’s three bedrooms. Though set up as a kid’s room with a single bed, there is plenty of space here to install a double.
The family bathroom also has a cast-iron fireplace, and is big enough to fit a bath and separate shower with another double bedroom to its rear. It opens out to a small, west-facing courtyard, a lovely feature if you’re sharing the house.
The main bedroom is situated upstairs and comprises about 19 sq m (205 sq ft) including a walk-through wardrobe area and shower en suite.
The house is in walk-in condition with every square inch of space maximised. They’re now looking for a larger space for their growing family.
The property is seeking ¤475,000 through agent MoveHome.
