Located on this very popular residential street of pretty red brick houses, no. 58 Carlingford Road has been extended and refurbished to an extremely high standard by the current owner. The level of finish is incredible along with the use of high quality materials throughout. The brief from the client was to allow light to flood through the property and this has been achieved by the use of skylights, a large wall of bi-folding doors and clever pocket doors in the reception room to the front which when opened allows light through the entire house from front to rear.
Many original features have been retained and blend seamlessly with the on-trend modern décor. The peaceful location off Drumcondra Road Lower will appeal to those seeking a friendly local community with every possible amenity close to hand.
The accommodation comprises a hallway with polished wooden floor. The front living room has the original cast iron fireplace with fitted shelving and storage in the alcoves at either side. Pocket doors allow this room to be separate when required and this room doubles as an occasional guest bedroom. The kitchen/ living/ dining room is a spectacular space with lots of light flooding through the bi-folding doors and large skylight. The high quality kitchen units are topped with Italian marble with a range of integrated appliances. The dining area is located beneath the skylight with the living area closer to the garden with a flame effect electric fire providing a lovely focal point. The same floor tiles have been used in this space and the garden which allow a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living. There is a lobby with access to the downstairs shower room. The bespoke oak staircase leads to the upstairs where there are two generous bedrooms, the main room spans the width of the house with two windows with a second double room to the rear. Both rooms have an extensive range of wardrobes. There is a second shower room at this level.
The garden to the front is railed and laid in low maintenance chippings while the rear garden is laid in tiles similar to those used in the ground floor extension. The garden measures approx. 6m x 5m and offers great privacy with raised flower beds and fitted seating. There is a useful storage shed with plumbing for a washing machine and pedestrian access to a laneway.
The location is very convenient being within walking distance of the city centre and convenient to the numerous shops, cafes, bars and restaurants Drumcondra Village has to offer. Griffith Park and the Botanic Gardens are close by and provide beautiful open green areas. Dublin City University is within easy reach with a variety of good sports clubs, national and secondary schools locally. The Four Courts, King's Inns, Beaumont Hospital and the Mater Hospital are all easily accessible. Commuting further afield is made very easy with the M50 Motorway, The M1 and Dublin Airport within a few minutes' drive. The area is very well serviced by public transport, through the many bus routes which pass close by and Drumcondra Rail station nearby.
