Built by renowned Irish builder Alexander Strain at the turn of the 20th century, this five-bedroom home in Glasnevin’s quiet Iona Cresent has all of the raw materials for a beautiful family home. Currently on the market for €1.1 million, it is still in need of a bit of work.

Entering through the redbrick arch of the stained-glass porch, the hall has the dining room to the left and the front reception room to the right. The dining room has pocket doors leading into a smaller rear living room, where the original shape of the rear windows and door have been maintained but a small sunroom extension has been added on, maintaining light levels.

Behind the stairs is a bathroom. The kitchen is in need of a complete overhaul, but it’s nonetheless a large space that has also been extended into the back garden’s redbrick original outhouses. 

Upstairs, there is another WC located over the return and five bedrooms and a family bathroom located on the first floor. There are three very large double bedrooms, and two single rooms, all with plenty of light thanks to the large sash windows overlooking the quiet street or sun-soaked back garden.

Undoubtedly, despite the million euro price tag, this house still requires a bit of work. The kitchen is the back in an awkward, L-shaped lean-to, those tired carpets are asking to be torn up and the entire house could use some TLC.

However, there are some magnificent bones in the structure of this building. As well the Edwardian brick facade and ornate cast-iron fence, inside there’s intricate stained glass surrounding the original front door, a beautiful stone fireplace in the front reception room, plenty of ceiling height, what looks like a vaulted ceiling and cornicing in one of the bedrooms and beautiful sash windows that have been recently replaced for double-glazed versions.

To the rear there is also has a large, south-facing garden with a greenhouse, perfect for a busy family. It’s also just a short walk from the National Botanical Gardens and Griffith Park.
