Set in a quiet cul de sac off the North Circular Road, 15 Ellesmere Avenue is a deceptively spacious period home built in the early 1900's which has been fully renovated with great flair and imagination to create a truly beautiful family home full of light and character. The current owner has installed many Velux windows and created vaulted ceilings in the rooms upstairs, the result is a home filled with light and dramatic high ceilings. Decorated with great style and taste, the property retains numerous original features and offers the ideal opportunity to acquire a property in an established family area with a great sense of community.
The accommodation comprises a large hallway with wooden floor and ceiling covings, two interconnecting reception rooms, both with wooden floors and ceiling covings, the living room to the front has a beautiful wooden fireplace while the dining room to the rear has a cast iron fireplace with solid fuel stove. The kitchen is fitted with a great range of solid oak units with integrated appliances, Belfast sink and granite counter tops. There is ample room for a dining table and seating area. Upstairs the main bedroom spans the width of the property with two windows, vaulted ceiling, skylights and fitted sliderobes. The second bedroom also has a vaulted ceiling, skylight and fitted sliderobes. The third bedroom is located on the return with the added bonus of a dressing room and en suite shower room. A family bathroom with modern suite completes the accommodation.
The south west facing rear garden is low maintenance with colourful flower beds, built-in BBQ and two storage sheds. There is pedestrian access to a gated laneway.
The location is superb, combining the peace and quiet of a cul de sac with the bustling village atmosphere of Stoneybatter, a couple of minutes' walk away. The area is renowned for its many specialist shops, delis, bakeries, cafes and restaurants. There are plenty of supermarkets locally. One of the main attractions of the area is the fabulous Phoenix Park which is a mere 10 minute-s' walk away. For those working in the city centre it is a pleasant stroll, with public transport also available at Heuston Station, the LUAS stops at Phibsborough, Broadstone and Grangegorman. Five bus routes have stops on the North Circular Road while the M50 allows easy access to the Airport. An exciting development in the area is the new Technological University Dublin (TUD) campus at Grangegorman with lovely green open spaces accessible to the public.
