Appearances can certainly be deceiving, especially when you consider this home for sale in Portobello, on the aptly named Pleasants Street. 

While its bijou exterior appearance may look like this is a tiny one-up-one-downer, it’s actually got 140 square metres to play with inside. This includes a living room, dining room, bathroom, spacious kitchen, utility, two courtyard gardens and three substantial bedrooms, one with an ensuite. 

Up for sale for €850,000, the three double-bed bedrooms can be found on the entrance level, ensuring that the privacy of the busy living spaces are maintained at the garden level below. All accessible through a bright front hallway, the south-facing master bedroom has its own en suite that includes a free-standing bath.

Downstairs, a spacious living room faces onto the front courtyard garden with mature planting offering plenty of privacy. The living room also boasts a beautiful sash window and an ornate original fireplace.

Off this is the dining room, with plenty of storage and direct access to the kitchen and private back courtyard. The kitchen includes a large gas range and a double Belfast sink. To the rear is a tucked-away utility room.

The back courtyard is south-facing and brings plenty of light into the kitchen and dining area and is not overlooked in any way, ensuring total privacy.

Pleasants Street, though right in the heart of Portobello, has resident-only parking discs, ensuring it’s a quiet residential spot within walking distance of Dublin city.
