Every now and again a very special property is presented to the market that is sure to cause a stir for those with a taste for the finer things in life and this distinctive property is no exception.
KELLY BRADSHAW DALTON are truly excited to introduce you to No.3 St Peters Avenue, Phibsborough, Dublin 7. Nestled into a beautiful private, gated and cobbled enclave of just five wonderful period homes, sits this stunning mid-1800s Victorian property. Originally a two up, two down, the current owners have extended and completely renovated from top to bottom and the results are nothing short of stunning.
On arrival to the enchanting lane, you are greeted by a very handsome facade. The exterior is rendered and finished in Downpipe by Farrow & Ball. Above the inviting solid wood hall door with brass detail, sits a replica of the original teardrop fanlight, lovingly mirroring next door. The six above six panel sash windows give us just a hint of what lies behind the exterior.
On crossing the threshold, you are warmly greeted by 9 inch wide, oiled solid pine hardwood flooring that effortlessly flow from one room to the next, creating a seamless finish. Light fills the space that peeks in through the fanlight and the fresh muted tones of indulgent Farrow & Ball Clutch, adorn the stunning woodwork and panelling. The high ceilings give a great sense of space and the underfloor heating system ensures a warm welcome home.
To the left of the hallway is the formal living room, truly a sumptuous 'grown up' space, where one could get lost in the flicker of the open fire while enjoying a glass of wine or gathering with family in the evening. Painted in Mere Green, again by Farrow & Ball, the room is striking yet comfortable while retaining the original details one would expect from a property of this era.
Working shutters frame the Scottish pine, hand crafted windows and Pilkington Spacia glass has been installed, ensuring a warm, comfortable and quiet home for years to come. To note Pilkington Spacia is a unique Insulating Glass Unit which provides similar energy efficiency performance as double-glazing, but in a much thinner profile, used in slim frames they are perfect when maintaining an older property's original appearance, with the comforts of modern day living.
When renovating this home, the current owners married the old with the new perfectly. To the rear of the stylish property, we find a more modern layout. The exposed brick from the original house packs a punch and gives a nod to the past, all while resulting in a stunning backdrop to the fully fitted Mobalpa kitchen. The kitchen, painted predominately in Farrow & Ball Charlotte's Locks, features ten-foot-high ceilings allowing for a bright and airy feel and the clever shards of natural light from the new extension is something everyone will enjoy.
The integrated Miele appliances include a self-cleaning fan oven and a combined fanmicrowave oven. For the coffee lovers, there is a built-in Miele Nespresso machine. Above the DeDietrich induction hob, there is a Miele extractor. While the cooking appliances are currently electrically powered, the kitchen is piped for gas.
No attention to detail has been spared, for example, the composite stone kitchen countertop is extra deep to accommodate the Miele washing machine. The countertop is complimented by a full-length Colour Glass backsplash.
The kitchen units are equipped with both up and down lighting which creates a cosy ambiance in the evenings.
The ground floor extension focuses on family and friends, a fantastic space for entertaining, or simply to enjoy, it sweeps out into the city garden and lets the outdoors in. Currently dressed as a less formal family/dining room, the under floor heating continues through here and is finished in Farrow & Ball Drawing Room Blue. This room benefits from excellent light from the large overhead skylight and over-sized back door by German manufacturer Schein. Custom units provide additional storage space and house the gas-fired energy efficient boiler. This boiler helped achieve the C2 BER rating which is considered very well for a property of this period.
Matching paint draws the eye to the outside space where clever use has been made of the available area. Out of sight storage and a large bamboo plant provide great privacy with ample room for a table and chairs. In this business we say west is best, one can sit and enjoy the sunshine from lunchtime into the late evening in the summer months. Paved in black Indian limestone, the sun trapped city garden is the most ideal location to sit and unwind.
Not to be outdone, upstairs is equally impressive. On the first-floor return is the wet room, modern and filled with an abundance of natural light which floods the space through the skylight and ceiling level light panels, glazed with Bauhaus style glass bricks. Equipped with Grohe fixtures, including the oversized rain shower fixed to the 9-foot-high ceiling. The walls are tiled, top to bottom, with Porcelanosa Dolomiti Italian white polished stone. This room also benefits from underfloor heating and ample built-in storage. A real gem in this room is the aquarium, currently not in use, it's a very quirky feature that just adds to the character and charm within this stunning room.
On the first floor there are two exceptional double bedrooms, each enjoying beautiful working fireplaces and underfloor heating, individually zoned. The larger bedroom, spanning the width of the house, benefits from two large hand-crafted windows, framed by Helen Turkington velvet curtains. The period panelling is continued in this room and compliments the Brocade wallpaper by Farrow & Ball. On the Eileen Gray inspired bedside tables sits Poul Henningsen style lamps and there is ample floor space for additional storage should you need it.
The rear bedroom, painted in Chinese Blue, easily holds a queen-size bed, wardrobe, and locker. Working shutters finish this room.
The storage space in the attic, currently used by the owners as a home office, is accessed via a staircase on the first-floor landing. Painted in Hague Blue and combined with the wood panelling, it gives this space a New England style feel. Double-glazed dormer windows with plantation style shutters overlook mature trees to the rear. Hand-crafted shelving cleverly conceals additional storage space.
The location of No.3 is second to none. Situated right next to the LUAS GREEN LINE, it provides extremely easy access to the city and surrounding areas, although one could take a comfortable fifteen-minute stroll into the city centre too! Dublin bus links are well provided for with numerous bus routes right on your doorstep and nationwide travel provided by Busaras with pick-ups from St Peters Church. The transport links are set to be further improved with the proposed Mater Hospital Metro North stop giving easy access to the airport and beyond, less than 10 minutes' walk from No.3.
For those driving, the M50 is easily accessible by car with residents permit parking available. The ever-trendy Phibsborough Village with its many shops, bustling restaurants and cozy cafes dot the streets close by. The Phoenix Park, The Botanic Gardens and Smithfield Village are all easily within walking distance.
No.3 St Peters Avenue truly is stunning and early viewing comes highly recommended to really appreciate all that it has to offer.
