***Pre 63' with Site Potential***
KELLY BRADSHAW DALTON are delighted to present to the open market, 27 Howth Road, Clontarf, Dublin 3. This is an exceptional Pre '63 property with the opportunity to build to the rear, subject to planning permission.
Planning permission (ref 4421/07) was previously granted, and extended, for the construction of a three bed dwelling, 2 storey with attic accommodation, in the rear garden (access via Charlemont Lane) but has since lapsed. Precedent has been set more recently, when in 2021 permission was granted for a 2 storey (3-bed & study) detached dwelling, nearby on Charlemont Lane to the rear of 23 Howth Road (planning reference 2150/21).
No.27 is a charming red brick 2 storey over garden level period property (Pre '63) built in 1864. The property is currently divided into 8 flats (4 self contained studio flats and 4 one bedroom flats) and comprises of c.252 sqm of accommodation.
The property is currently laid out as follows. At the basement level there are two 1 bedroom flats. At the entrance level (first floor) there is a 1 bedroom flat and a studio. On the second floor return there is one studio. On the third floor there is a 1 bedroom flat and a studio and on the fourth floor there is a studio.
The property has the benefit of 3 phase electricity.
There is a very impressive large rear garden that boasts a south east aspect and the property has a very large garage to the rear. This can be accessed via Charlemont Lane, giving rise to mews potential.
Given the desirable location and the option to turn this into a prime residence, like neighbouring properties, with some imagination this would make a spectacular family home.
PRE '63 STATUS
The property has a pre '63 declaration for 6 flats. It has been in use as an 8-flat building since 1983 and as such it is statute barred (more than 7 years in current layout).
AS AN INVESTMENT
We have calculated that the open market rental value of the refurbished property could be 125,000 PA (1,100 for a studio flat and 1,500 for a 1 bed flat). It is the professional opinion of the selling agent that the quality of the location of this property justifies a yield of 8% as a finished product. At that yield, the refurbished property could be valued at 1,562,000. Therefore our AMV of 995,000 allows considerable room for refurbishment particularly since it includes the site to the rear.

ARCHITECTURAL ELEGANCE: 20TH CENTURY TERRACE RESIDENCE IN HISTORIC DUBLIN:
No. 27 is a testament to the exquisite residential design prevalent in early 20th-century Dublin. Its rich moulded brickwork, rustic stonework, and deep porch enhance the architectural cohesiveness of the streetscape, adding to the area's historic charm and character. The front of the house boasts a striking red brick wall in Flemish bond, resting on a robust granite plinth course and transitioning to rusticated granite basement walling. A moulded white brick eaves course and cast-iron rainwater goods further highlight its historical charm. Square-headed window openings with granite sills and a distinctive red brick surround at the basement window add to its allure. The entrance leads to a recessed porch featuring moulded brick pilasters and a cornice. The porch showcases a decorative plaster cornice and terracotta tiles. Approaching the entrance, a flight of eleven nosed granite steps with a half-landing awaits, bordered by ornate cast-iron railings and wrought-iron with decorative pineapple finials. A single granite step seamlessly connects the house to the footpath, framing this historic architectural gem.
