A wonderful opportunity to acquire a very fine 3 bed residence extending to c. 1765sqft / 164sqm of character-filled, classical proportions. Dating from 1829 the property was bought by the current owners having just been refurbished in 2003. It was then extended in 2014 with an open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room.
This impressive property has many of the attributes that discerning purchasers look for when creating that home of distinction. Primarily No. 53 has elegant light-filled proportions keeping some of the traditional features in the front of the property and more contemporary to the rear. It has a large, private rear garden c. 80 ft in length and off street parking to the front for up to two cars.
Entering the property you are greeted with a long hallway with a lovely mosaic tiled floor and you can see right through to the garden. To the left is the third bedroom or sturdy with original features such as the fireplace, cornicing and window shutters. The next room along the hall is the living room. Again there is the original cornicing and window shutters. It is a spacious room and looks into the central courtyard. At the end of the hall there is a tiled lobby area with a downstairs WC, utility cupboard and a door leading to the courtyard.
To the back of the house is a spacious, open plan kitchen/ sitting/ dining room with multiple skylights which mean the room is constantly bathed in natural light. The kitchen is bespoke, made by Victorian Salvage. Part of the kitchen overlooks out to the central courtyard while the living area leads out to the sun-drenched, sunken patio area. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has its original windows shutters and is a large room spanning the front of the house. The second bedroom also has original shutters and an original wooden fireplace.
Outside, to the front, there is off street parking for up to two cars. The rear garden has three tiers and extends to c.80ft/24m with a beautiful patio area and a mature lawn and trees.
Located just off the main South Circular Road, adjacent to Leonard’s Corner and within 15 minutes walking distance of Christchurch and St Stephen’s Green. The area is host to a vast array of amenities including The Grand Canal, choice restaurants and coffee houses, the LUAS line and prime bus routes ensuring efficient access to the city centre and surrounding areas
