We are delighted to bring No 157 to the market. This would make a wonderful venture for those looking for a building project/ investment. Currently the property is laid out in three units and is in need of complete refurbishment. It comes to the market with the benefit of planning permission, ref: 2026/16, to convert it into a spacious two bedroomed apartment c. 67.5m2 on the ground floor and a sizeable 1 bedroomed apartment c. 57m2 on the first floor.
At the moment going through the front door there is a studio apartment with an open plan living cum bedroom with a kitchenette and shower room off it. Going around the side of the building onto Maxwell Lane there are two small courtyards. The first leads to the two bedroomed apartment. This has a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor with a living room, kitchen and bedroom on the first floor. The second leads to a one bedroomed apartment with a study.
157 is located on the corner of Maxwell Lane and Rathmines Road Upper just north of Frankfort Avenue. There are a range of great shops literally on your doorstep. It lies within easy walking distance of the villages of Rathmines, Rathgar and Ranelagh which offer a host of top schools, choice shops, restaurants and delis and excellent transport facilities. The LUAS green line at Cowper Road is just a few minutes’ walk away while St Stephen’s Green and Grafton Street are within 3 kilometres.
Exceptional location close to a Rathmines, Ranelagh and Rathgar Villages.
