Portobello house for sale

If you fancy living near Dublin’s city centre, with canal views and plentiful amenities on your doorstep, have a look at this recently-refurbished house in Portobello

Behind the beautiful façade are bright, spacious rooms; all of which are presented in turn-key condition; as the current owners rewired the house, refurbished a bathroom, added a new bathroom, partly re-roofed and completely redecorated the property in 2016.

Windsor Terrace is a hugely sought after address, not just because it’s adjacent to the canal in Portobello, but also because a host of amenities are on its doorstep. These include some of Dublin’s top restaurants, hip cafes, bars, antique shops and boutiques. What’s more, St Stephen’s Green and Grafton Street are within easy walking distance.

The inviting hallway (which features a ceiling rose, solid timber floor and security alarm), leads onto two interconnecting reception rooms.

The first of these two rooms boasts an original cast-iron fireplace; as well as a solid timber floor, panelled walls, picture rail and decorative arch.

Measuring 4.99 metres x 5.02 metres, the recently-refurbished kitchen-cum-dining room is the true heart of the home.

The attractive, open-plan space has ample bespoke wall and floor units; a breakfast counter, a separate storage cupboard with pull-out shelving, a Butler-style sink; Bosch gas hob, Zanussi oven with extractor fan; integrated Siemens dishwasher, a fridge/freezer, Indesit washing machine, a solid timber floor, down-lighters and double doors to the rear garden.

Upstairs

Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a master en-suite and a recently-refurbished bathroom. There’s also a guest WC downstairs for convenience. The landing is bright with white walls, solid timber flooring, two skylights and down-lighters.

The master bedroom, which spans the full width of the house, overlooks Grand Canal. This light-filled bedroom also boasts wall-to-wall, bespoke, built-in wardrobes and a solid timber floor.

The two additional bedrooms come with built-in wardrobes for storage.

Elsewhere, the main family bathroom is beautifully decorated with a Burlington wash-hand basin supported by wrought iron stand, a WC, a free-standing clawed bath with Burlington shower attachment, a shower cubicle with rainwater shower head down-lighters, skylight and a tiled floor.

Meanwhile, the master ensuite has a wash-hand basin with storage cabinet, Duravit WC, a shower cubicle with rainwater shower-head, a heated towel rail, tiled floor, skylight and down-lighters.

Outside

To the front of this Portobello home, there is a gated garden providing off-street parking with mature shrubs. To the rear, there is a very attractive, low maintenance garden with flagstone paving (perfect for al fresco dining).

There is also a raised lawn area with mature flowers and bamboo, with the greenery providing great privacy.

Priced at €800,000, estate agents at Owen Reilly say this home “combines period elegance with modern convenience. Must be viewed to be appreciated.”
