6 Greenfield Place
Built at the turn of the 20th century, 6 Greenfield Place in Harold’s Cross has been beautifully restored to merge old features with the new. Described by estate agents DNG as "an exceptional artisan property", the house has been lovingly upgraded by its current owners; with newly fitted insulation, wiring, heating, as well as a new kitchen and bathroom.
Enter via the turquoise door to a bright entrance hallway, which boasts original timber flooring and high ceilings. Currently painted in a neutral, pale grey, the owners have brightened the room further by adding a row of modern artworks to the wall.
From the hall, pass through to the double reception room; which features a cast-iron fireplace and a multi-fuel stove. Again, there is timber flooring and high ceilings, as well as built-in shelving and sash windows.
By painting the room in a bright, neutral grey, the current owners have made the space feel bigger than it is. They’ve also added in splashes of colour by way of yellow armchairs, artwork, plants and cushions.
This open-plan space doubles as a dining area, with room for a four-to-six seater dining table. There's also room for a narrow piano, as you can see from the photo above.
The kitchen, though small and narrow, is in excellent condition. It comes with chequered tiling, the original sash window, and double doors which lead out to the beautiful south-facing courtyard. It’s also fitted with a washing machine, dishwasher, Zanussi cooker and built-in storage.
The upper level of this Harold’s Cross home has two large double bedrooms; both of which have feature fireplaces, and one of which has built-in wardrobes. The bedrooms are filled with natural light, courtesy of the original sash windows which come with working shutters.
The main bathroom, which measures 2.05m X 2.66m, has been tastefully redecorated. It’s painted a stylish teal-blue and has a bath/shower and heated towel rack.
What’s more, the attic space (with skylight) is fully floored and offers ample storage. It also houses the boiler and can be easily accessed by a Staighre staircase.
To the rear of the house, there is a low-maintenance courtyard which is perfect for al fresco dining. It also has rear lane access which new owners may find useful.
If this Harold's Cross house sounds like 'the one' for you, it's currently on the market for €545,000.
