Hopkins Ward have the pleasure in presenting 60, The Coombe, Dublin 8 to the residential sales market. Rarely do such amazing properties come to the sales market. This property reflects everything that is quintessentially Dublin 8 and what makes this area one of the most sought-after locations in Dublin City. This house is an absolute must see!
The property was originally built by The Quakers in the late 1890’s. The house has an amazing history. The house was originally constructed for families of the linen weavers in Dublin 8. In a move to depopulate the tenements in St Stephens Green, The Coombe was the ideal destination. The property has undergone a number of roles since this. It was a local laundrette up until the 1960’s, a local political party constituency office and up to the late 90’s and early 2000’s a film production office.
The home is in its current ownership since 2013. One of the many unique selling points, and there are many, is the flexibility that the house allows for the potential working from home, post covid world. The current layout has the second bedroom at ground floor. This could easily be used as a home office with its own door entrance for any potential clients attending.
The home has an abundance of period features. Red brick, High Ceilings, Cast Iron Radiators, 2 x fireplaces on 1st Floor, Original floorboards at 1st Floor level and a stunning Belfast Sink in the main kitchen area. All of these features have been carefully protected over the years and some modern additions include GFCH and new Double-Glazed windows throughout in 2021.
The house measures 65sq.m and is laid out over a traditional 2 floors. On entering the property at ground floor level, one is immediately entering a bright open plan kitchen/diner with a stunning open stairwell to floor 1. The high ceilings and soft colours throughout make for a warm and inviting space. The use of an open stairway allows light to bounce up and downstairs and is an amazing feature in the house.
Also located at ground floor level is a utility room and master bathroom. The bathroom has been tastefully tiled and benefits from all modern sanitary wear. The Gas boiler is located in the utility space and was upgraded in recent years.
Ascending the stairs to 1st floor level, natural light continues to bounce around the 1st floor. On the first floor is a very ‘cool’ and cost den/living room. This space has the benefit of an open fire and direct access to the roof garden. The Roof Garden in Dublin City living is a huge bonus when a property has the benefit of one.
The master bedroom is an amazing space. Benefitting from an original fireplace, restored original floorboards and an abundance of natural light from 2 x window openings.
Location is second to none. St Stephens Green is within a 15-minute walk, the LUAS redline stop at Fatima within a 14 minute walk and every conceivable amenity on ones doorstep. Dublin 8 continues to take over in terms of local food markets, craft brewers, coffee roasters and some amazing new and old restaurants.
