KELLY BRADSHAW DALTON are truly honoured to introduce you to 18 St. Columbas Road Lower, Drumcondra, Dublin 9.
Simply stunning is the word that springs to mind when inviting you to explore this beautiful Edwardian home. This gem will impress all who visit and with plenty to see, a viewing is a must to appreciate what lies behind the front door!
On arrival to the quiet, mature street, one will note the wonderful redbrick faade and original iron mongered gates that frame the property perfectly. Crossing the threshold, we step into a renovated home where an abundance of love has been poured into the interior and exquisite taste in dcor and finishes have resulted in a home where old world charm meets modern day comfort and shrouded in opulence. High ceilings and wonderful original fireplaces and features adorn each room and deliver the wow factor at every turn.
To the left of the hallway is the impressive formal living room with original working feature fireplace, coving, window shutters and interconnected with the formal dining room. New floors have been laid creating a seamless finish and the fresh muted tones give you a sense of luxury. The dining room features French doors that sweep out into the sun drenched patio area and a glimpse of the beautiful garden. This is a fantastic entertaining space, where you can be the perfect host to your family and friends very comfortably and with garden access, it wont matter the time of year in which you entertain.
To the rear of the property is the kitchen. When you walk into the room, the first thing you notice is the large picture frame window that captures the most mesmerising garden. Fully fitted, the kitchen features ample floor and eye level units and access to the rear garden and finished with natural stone carpet. The current owner has a real flare for gardening and the results are simply stunning. Mature, well stocked and exceptionally beautiful, the sun trapped garden provides you with a colourful oasis where one would forget just how close to the city you are. The limestone paved patio with limestone and granite brick landscaped garden with mature planting, will truly impress. There is rear access for bikes and bins and a parking area used by residents.
Not to be outdone, as we wind our way upstairs, where the stunning original bannisters guide us to the first floor return boasting double height ceilings, is the family bathroom and W.C. Fully tiled, there is a bath hand basin and separate W.C.
To the first floor there are three fantastic bedrooms. Each room features the most beautiful original cast iron fireplaces, each of them as beautiful as the next. The Master bedroom is overlooking the rear and boasts custom built in storage. The second bedroom features a built in Murphy bed, allowing the space to be used to suit your needs. The third bedroom is a single room, currently fitted out as a wonderful walk in wardrobe.
Just when you thought there was no more to be enjoyed, the current owners have converted the attic (2011) and the results are beautifully finished. The ceilings on the first floor were lowered by 12 inches to allow for excellent head room and there is ample built in storage, insulation and velux window. The views from the attic room are a real surprise and unobstructed, overlooking St George's Churchyard, which was established in 1793, it really is a wonderful private and quiet location.
