With a large manicured, easy-to-maintain garden to the front with wrought iron railings and a gated entrance front the path, this stunning Victorian redbrick home spans 253 square metres of accommodation over three floors.

On the market for €1.55 million, an arched exterior porch welcomes you into an ornate front hall with plaster cornicing, a detailed plaster arch and chandelier. Off the hall on the entrance floor is an interconnecting drawing room and dining room that stretches the entire depth of the original building. These rooms contain all the period features you might expect, including the original marble fireplaces. Ceilings in the original house are of period proportions and draw in plenty of light with the large Georgian sash windows

Steps take you down to the garden level, where a contemporary extension includes a modern kitchen and casual eating and living spaces, which as double doors onto the garden. The kitchen has marble countertops, Miele dishwasher, wine fridge, and gas hob, as well as a double Siemens oven and integrated Liebherr double fridge and double freezer.

There’s also a private double bedroom looking on to the garden with its own entrance as well as a sizable home office. In the original footprint of the house are another bedroom and a front entrance, located under the stone steps.

On the top floor are a further three double bedrooms. The main bedroom has views over the back garden as well as a large ensuite and bespoke built-in wardrobes. The other two bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom located in the return, with a Velux window and marble floor tiles.

The westerly-facing walled rear garden has an artificial lawn, perfect for smallies who want to kick a ball through every season, and private pedestrian access.
