This refurbished house off Grand Canal Street will set you back €850K

Albert Place, Dublin 2

Whether you’re searching for your dream home or snooping out interior design inspiration, have a look at this three-bed house off Grand Canal Street, Dublin 2


Located on a quiet cul-de-sac just off Grand Canal Street, Dublin 2, this Victorian home is on the market for a whopping €850,000. 17 Albert Place has been recently refurbished to an impressive standard and its current owners are selling in turn-key condition.

Estate agents at Owen Reilly say this three-bedroom house comes, “with an unrivalled social infrastructure on its doorstep,” adding that, “Albert Place East is a quiet residential road of Victorian townhouses – with Beggars Bush, Grand Canal Dock and Merrion Square all within a five-minute walk.”

The two-paned front door, with its arched, overhead fan window, fills the entrance hall with natural light. This then leads down to an open-plan living room and kitchen.

With this space measuring 8.84 metres x 4.02 metres, it’s large enough to fit a comfortable L-shaped sofa and TV unit. It also boasts oak laminate flooring, ceiling spotlights, and a modern, vertical radiator. Current owners have added warmth to the white walls through artwork and soft furnishings.

Towards the rear, you’ll find a fully-equipped kitchen, with features including a centre island, marble countertops and a marble splashback. There is also a washer/dryer, double oven, hob and extractor fan. Glass sliding doors, which lead out to the garden, add lots of natural light, as does the skylight overhead.

Also on this level is a stylish family bathroom. This comes with tiled flooring, a large walk-in glass shower cubicle, radiator and mirror above sink. There is also a twin bedroom on the ground floor, with a sash window and oak laminate flooring. This could easily be transformed into a second living room if needed.

Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, a master en-suite and a study. The spacious master measures 3.98 x 3.40 metres and comes with built-in wardrobes and newly laid carpets. It also boasts an ensuite bathroom, with a large shower and tiled flooring.

The second double bedroom is located to the rear of the property with views over the garden area. As with the master, this bedroom has built-in wardrobes and newly laid carpet.

Other features in this South Dublin home include ample on-street resident’s parking to the front and a west-facing garden to the rear. This garden also comes with a patio area, perfect for al-fresco dining during the summer months.

At €850,000, 17 Albert Place is far from cheap (but we’re taking renovation inspiration all the same).
