This refurbished Portobello home could be yours for €995,000

This refurbished Portobello home could be yours for €995,000

Portobello is one of Dublin’s most popular urban neighbourhoods. With the city centre just a 10-minute walk away; and with a great selection of cafés, bars and restaurants on your doorstep (not to mention numerous schools); it’s a sought-after place to live for young families and professionals.

If you’d like to make Portobello your home, have a look at this refurbished property available to buy on Pleasants Street now.

23 Pleasants Street

From the outside, you wouldn’t think this period Portobello home was bright and spacious inside. But it is. Refurbished by its current owners just two years ago, 23 Pleasants Street benefits from large, light-filled rooms and a south-facing aspect to the rear.

Enter the property via the original flight of steps to the front door. The long and welcoming hallway is well-lit from the fan window above the door, and it grants access to two large interconnecting reception rooms (one of which, estate agents DNG say, could be used as an additional bedroom).

The reception room to the front of the house has high ceilings and a feature fireplace, as well as dark, wooden floors. The current owners have tastefully styled it with colourful throws, curtains, flowers and rugs; all of which make the space feel warm and inviting.

The second reception area offers additional seating, rear-garden views and personalised artwork.

Also on this level is a spacious double bedroom (not the master, which is located downstairs). As it’s positioned to the rear of the house, it is filled with natural light and also benefits from an ensuite.

Downstairs

According to DNG, the lower level of this Portobello property is the heart of the home. It boasts a very large kitchen-cum-dining room which doubles as a living area.

The modern, tiled kitchen is fitted with an oven, hob and American-style fridge-freezer with an ice machine. There is ample storage beneath the white countertops and elegant spotlights in the ceiling.

Elsewhere, DNG says, “The downstairs hallway is equipped with stylish lighting and is lined with cabinets that offer excellent storage space”.

This hallway leads to the master bedroom, which features a walk-in dressing room and a large ensuite bathroom. Not only that, but this bedroom also offers direct access to the courtyard out back. A fully tiled WC is also located on this level for guests.

Outside

The courtyard to the back of the house is perfect for al fresco dining, and it’s spacious enough for family barbecues in the summer.

What’s more, the garden is south-facing and has access from St Kevin’s Cottages; providing the potential for off street parking. Pleasants Street itself, to the front of the house, benefits from on-street residents disc parking.
