Old meets new in D6W

One of the most de­sir­able lo­ca­tions in Harold’s Cross is that of Casimir Road and the clus­ter of roads around it. Prices on the prop­erty price reg­is­ter show how sale prices have been steadily in­creas­ing here since 2011, but are still way off the boom heights where prop­er­ties were reg­u­larly selling for more than ¤1.25 mil­lion.

The highest price recorded since the Prop­erty Price Reg­is­ter be­gan is that of 54 Casimir Road, a su­perb four bed, which sold for ¤980,000 last year.

A cul-de-sac, Casimir Av­enue is one of the qui­etest streets in the area. Number 8, a mid-ter­race three-bed Ed­war­dian was pur­chased by its cur­rent own­ers in 2011 for ¤560,000.

The two re­cep­tion rooms re­tain their pe­riod fea­tures and are light-filled thanks to a box bay win­dow in the draw­ing room, and a door which opens to the rear pa­tio from the din­ing room.

‘‘ Up a fur­ther set of stairs lies a bright at­tic which has been con­verted

A gal­ley-style kitchen with Neff ap­pli­ances, runs to a break­fast area which has had the ad­di­tion of a set of doors open­ing out on to the rear pa­tio. Their clever de­sign – in an L-shape and the fact that they roll on a run­ner, al­lows the pa­tio – with a south east­erly as­pect – to be­come an in­te­gral part of the kitchen space in good weather.

On the return lies a bed­room and the fam­ily bath­room; there is a fur­ther bath­room plus sep­a­rate util­ity on the ground floor. The prin­ci­pal bed­room is im­pres­sive and runs the en­tire width of the house – with an ad­ja­cent bed­room – which is also a fine-sized double next door.

Up a fur­ther set of stairs lies a bright at­tic which has been con­verted. Mea­sur­ing 18sq m (200sq ft) it is cur­rently used as a guest bed­room and has the ben­e­fit of an en-suite.

Sherry FitzGerald is seek­ing ¤795,000 for the 141sq m (1,518)sq ft prop­erty in turnkey con­di­tion.
