The three-bedroom house is close to Beechwood Luas, as well as the many shops and restaurants of Ranelagh.
Located in one of Dublin’s most sought-after villages, 54 Beechwood Avenue Upper is a period home that has had some illustrious owners, including Jim Larkin and Douglas Gageby, an editor of the Irish Times.
Today, it has been beautifully refurbished, while retaining all its period charm, and the current owners have combined the old and new with deft.
You enter into the main hallway, where the door features an original fanlight. The hall itself has stained original wood flooring, as well as decorative coving and a centre rose, and leads to the living room on the left.
With high ceilings and a sash window, the living room has all the elegance one would expect of a period home. It has been decorated in soft neutral tones, helping it to feel welcoming and relaxing. This style is continued through to the interconnecting dining room.
To the rear of the house is the kitchen, which features minimal, contemporary units in white, with a teal feature wall. Herringbone tiles add a touch of interest, while there is also space for another dining table, for more casual meals.
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, two of which have fitted wardrobes and cast-iron fireplaces. There is also a large family bathroom, with both bath and shower.
The garden to the rear is walled, making it very safe for children and pets. There is a large lawn as well as a patio area, perfect for outdoor dining in the summer. Located close to Ranelagh and its many amenities, this home is also just a three minute walk to the Beechwood Luas stop, giving you easy access to the city centre.
From mats that look like gorgeous patterned tiles to removable wallpaper, there are plenty of commitment-free ways to refresh your home.
