A wonderful opportunity to acquire a very fine period property which is in walk-in condition throughout. Dating from c.1835, No. 34 Pleasants Street offers elegant classical proportions with superb floor to ceiling height and retains all of the original character. It was refurbished and extended by architect Roland Bosbach in 2000 and won an AAI (Architectural Association of Ireland) Award. The glass box design has stood the test of time and the contemporary and traditional designs complement each other.
You enter the house via a set of granite steps. There are original timber floors throughout. The hall has wonderful decorative plasterwork and solid wood floors. To the left are two interconnecting reception rooms that run the length of the house and offer views up Synge Street. The sitting room is to the front of the house and the dining room is to the rear. The rooms have matching fireplaces and solid wood floors.
The monochromatic kitchen to the rear is very simple. White floor-to-ceiling units hide the dishwasher and washing machine as well as tall pull-out larder units. Huge floor-to-ceiling glazing in the kitchen makes this a fantastic space to spend time in. A door opens onto a steel walkway and a set of steps that lead down to the south-facing garden. It has an artificial lawn and pedestrian access onto Synge Street. There is a garden room that would make a very roomy home office or workshop, especially if you added additional light sources.
Downstairs there are three double bedrooms accessed via a solid oak balustrade leading down an open-tread staircase. A shower room is to the front. A door leading off it conceals another storage shed hidden under the granite steps. The main bedroom to the rear has an ensuite bathroom with storage set into the walls and large picture windows overlooking the rear garden. The small internal courtyard off the main bedroom makes the room light-filled.
The location is quiet yet highly convenient to St Stephen’s Green and Grafton Street which are just a 10 minute stroll away. The immediate area has wonderful local shops, delis and restaurants while the local street vendors on neighbouring Camden Street offer daily fresh fruit, veg and flowers. Harcourt Street Luas stop is but a 3 minute walk away while prime bus routes run along South Circular Rd and Camden Street.
Refurbished and extended by architect Roland Bosbach in 2000 and winner of an AAI (Architectural Association of Ireland) Award
