Decorative delights hidden in a Victorian terrace…

…in an enviable location

-

The extraordin­ary decorative features that you find behind the hall doors of so many seemingly plain-looking Victorian terraced homes never ceases to amaze. This five-bed 224sq.m/ 2,415 sq.ft end of terrace, bay windowed home is no exception. Cross the threshold and the quality of the ornate ceiling cornices and plasterwor­k are immediatel­y apparent, as are the architrave­s surroundin­g the large panelled internal doors – particular­ly in the interconne­cting high-ceilinged living rooms. The staircase and original marble fireplaces are also lovely period features.

The house is currently laid out with two kitchens, the main one where you’d expect it, downstairs off the hall, and the second fitted into an upstairs bedroom. This could easily be removed to return the property to the fine family home it is.

Accommodat­ion includes the hall, large interconne­cting living rooms and the kitchen downstairs, which also has a sunroom extension with a freestandi­ng stove for family living and dining. Upstairs, a large double bedroom and a fine bathroom are located on the first floor return, and there are three more bedrooms further upstairs, one with a very stylish tiled en suite with a large glassdoore­d power shower.

The studio at the back has a separate entrance and is suitable for medical use. There is plenty of off-street parking in the gravelled front garden, while at the back is a paved patio garden.

New owners will very likely want to change one or two of the elements, such as the upstairs kitchen, but the enviable location on this mature, leafy residentia­l road is close to St Stephen’s Green.
