    We take great delight in bringing this very handsome, character-filled Victorian residence to the market which extends to c.1259sqft (117sqm) of generous light-filled proportions with excellent floor to ceiling height. This fine residence retains many of the original features and all of the original charm and character while having undergone a clever transformation and extension to the rear which has created an airy light-filled living space downstairs and a generous bathroom upstairs.

    Once over the threshold you are greeted by a bright, generous entrance hall with solid oak floors, original ceiling cornices, a fanlight over the front door, bookcases, cloak room and a WC under the stairs. A very fine reception room opens to the left with open fire and original period cast iron surround, oak flooring, original window shutters and ceiling cornicing. Pocket doors lead through to the fully fitted kitchen. There are quartz worktops, integrated appliances and the same wooden floors running through it. In an extension to the rear is the dining room. It has the same wooden floors and a sliding door that spans the width of the house, showing off the garden beyond. The kitchen and the dining room have underfloor heating.

    Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two double bedrooms and a single. On the return is a generous well-appointed bathroom with underfloor electric heating. Outside there is a very private south facing patio garden to rear which was designed, by Howbert and Mays, for easy maintenance with granite paving and raised beds which house an abundance of mature shrubbery. To the front there is on street residents disc parking.

    St Kevins Road is located in the highly fashionable Portobello district at the city end of South Circular Road, close to the leafy banks of the Grand Canal with an array of top restaurants, cafes and delis all on the doorstep. The area also has excellent transport links. The Harcourt Street Luas stop just a few moments’ walk away and many prime bus routes pass along the adjacent South Circular Road. If it’s high street fashion and colourful nightlife you’re after then St Stephen’s Green, Grafton Street, Temple Bar and the National Concert Hall are but a 10 – 20 minutes walk away.
