Built in 1853, 49 South Circular Road is a handsome and well-appointed 3 bedroomed terraced residence with a private, south-facing rear garden. This fine Victorian property extending to 222 sqm / 2390 sq. ft (approx.) has been lovingly restored into a family home and offers truly warm and inviting interior, seamlessly blending the original period features synonymous with the Victorian era such as high ceilings, sash windows, ornate ceiling cornicing, original fireplaces and floorboards with stylish, modernised décor, fixtures, and fittings of modern living. This exceptional property has been transformed by its current owners with the assistance of Pallas Architects and presents to the market in superb condition.
The property boasts versatile and spacious interior, offering a perfect balance of reception rooms and generous bedroom accommodation.
At garden level the layout comprises a welcoming entrance hall, two generous living spaces, a guest w.c, a cleverly converted study, and a contemporary open plan kitchen/living/dining area designed with the help of Noel Dempsey Kitchens, with particularly impressive floor to ceiling picture windows, a bay window as well as a glass sliding door providing access to the private rear garden.
The first floor comprises a family bathroom, three double bedrooms with original fireplaces, two benefiting from a southerly aspect whilst the third contains an ensuite and walk in wardrobe with significant effort being made to preserve the original cornicing. The front garden is traditional with wrought iron railings and a Victorian tiled path whilst the town garden to the rear offers a delightful private space ideal for entertaining with a southerly facing aspect receiving sun from sunrise to sunset.
Significant effort has been made to not only modernise the property but also restore and maintain its original features. Conservation specialists were commissioned to restore the original stained-glass light wells and restore and double glaze the original sash windows. As well as this, a complete re-wiring of the property has been carried out including ethernet cabling throughout all rooms. Other features include a raised roof line, a fire-resistant wall at the boundary in the attic, an intruder alarm and ample storage as well as insulation laid in the attic space.
Conveniently located in the heart of this vibrant and popular neighbourhood, all social and essential amenities are close by to include some of the south city centre's trendiest eateries and coffee houses. A 5-minute stroll will take you into the city's business district and the shopping/nightlife at St Stephen's Green/Grafton Street and immediate environs. Public transport is also well catered for with two Dublin Bike stations on your doorstep situated on Portobello Road and Grantham Street, whilst the LUAS at Harcourt will take you further afield if needed.
