***VICTORIAN PERIOD PROPERTY / ORIGINAL FEATURES / REAR ACCESS / EXCEPTIONAL LOCATION***

KELLY BRADSHAW DALTON are delighted to bring to the market No. 34 Carlingford Road, Drumcondra, Dublin 9.

Built in the Victorian era circa.1850/1885, Carlingford Road is one of the streets on Dublins Northside that is truly a hidden gem. Tucked away from the trendy leafy village of Drumcondra, it allows us to step back in time, with a glimpse into the wonderful past when gentrification began to happen in the area. These homes are truly something special and number 34 is no exception.

Although in need of refurbishment, this property offers the purchaser the opportunity to create a truly spectacular home with an abundance of character from the moment you arrive at the front door. Beyond the attractive red brick faade with arch over door and pretty brick detailing, original ironmongery railings and city garden to the front, you are greeted by a home that has retained many original features. For those who have an eye for the finer details and want to retain those special features, this is sure to excite.

On entering you are greeted by an entrance porch and large bright hallway with high ceilings. To the right of the hallway is the formal living room. This room features coving, wood flooring and the most beautiful original fireplace and doors. This would make the most ideal spot to gather around the fire with family on those cosy winter evenings.

The second reception room is the formal dining room, again with wood flooring and fireplace although this would have housed the back boiler, gas heating has since been installed. To the rear is the kitchen, again this room is in need of modernising, but with some love and attention it really could be a spectacular space that would be ideal for entertaining as it provides access to the rear garden. The garden is paved and benefits from rear access, ideal for busy families.

Completing the downstairs accommodation is the family bathroom with shower, hand basin and separate W.C.

Winding our way upstairs, we are greeted by two exceptional double bedrooms. Each of the double rooms retains their ornate original cast iron fireplace with fern design insert, a special touch and a rarity to have. No.34 offers any potential purchaser the opportunity to acquire a truly unique home with an abundance of character and old world charm in a wonderful tranquil setting.

The location of Carlingford Road cannot be understated. Within walking distance of the City Centre and convenient to the numerous shops, cafes, bars and restaurants Drumcondra has to offer. Two of the most renowned coffee shops, Andersons and The Lovely Food Company are both on your doorstep.

The area is very well serviced by a great public transport system, and enjoys easy access to the IFSC, East Point Business Park, Dublin Airport, Mater, Temple Street & Beaumont Hospitals, DCU and Trinity and the M1 & M50 motorways.

Several of Irelands most prestigious educational institutions are within walking distance, including St Patricks College of Education, Mater Del Institute of Education and All Hallows College and All Hallows Educate Together. The area is also home to some great schools and creches such as Little Learners as well as Drumcondra National School, Lindsay Road National School and Corpus Christi G.N.S.

The green open spaces nearby and its close proximity to the city makes it a unique location. Drumcondra Station is minutes away and you can walk to the LUAS cross city line. There are also numerous bus routes servicing Drumcondra.

Early viewing of this property is very highly recommended to appreciate all its potential.
