MOVEHOME ESTATE AGENTS ... are honoured to offer a truly delightful 3 bedroom period residence that sits with pride and grace, on an elevated stretch of one of the most desireable roads in this established area. No. 115 Griffith Avenue is a spacious family home of 135 m² / 1453 ft² with handsome proportions and many elegant features throughout, and this property also benefits from one of the largest and most private rear gardens on this popular road. The garden is approx 160ft long and 35ft wide, which gives the new owners ample room to extend the original structure in style or even build an outhouse/studio/playroom to the very rear of the garden. This is without doubt one of the most wonderfully presented homes to come to the market this year and the care by the current owners results in the creation of a captivating and exemplary interior, that one would expect to see in an interior magazine. The immensely stylish interior greatly compliments the original design and viewing is the only way to appreciate what this home has to offer.
The accommodation comprises a welcoming entrance hallway with ample storage facilities and a seperate cloakroom, which in the original design of the early 1930's was to be a modern internal phone booth! Two large interconnecting reception rooms are located off the main hall, with high ceilings, period fireplaces and the original quality wooden flooring. The front living room has a prominent bay window that enjoys sweeping views of the avenue and discreet double doors lead to the rear dining room. This spacious room enjoys all its original features and has glass double doors that lead out to the mature and private garden. The kitchen to the rear still has the original cast iron tiled fireplace and enjoys access to the rear garden which it overlooks. Upstairs, there is a wonderful landing area which is flooded with natural light and has views of Griffith Avenue. There are four generous sized bedrooms, two doubles and a single room. The main bathroom has a large separate shower corner shower, spacious bath and is fully tiled with an abundace of natural light. Attic access is enjoyed from the landing and the Stira stairs welcomes one to a very spacious attic that is fully floored and could be a 4th or 5th bedroom for the growing family.
To the side of the prominent property is a converted garage that is currently an office area, boasting high ceilings, glass front and ample room for storage. The gardens are a particular feature of the property with plenty of off street parking to the front and a stunning 160ft rear garden which is very private and planted with mature trees and shrubs. Standing in the rear garden it is hard to imagine you are within easy reach of Dublin city centre as the garden has a truly tranquil feel. There is also a purpose built storage shed and outside WC.
Griffith Avenue runs through Glasnevin, Drumcondra and down to Marino. The avenue spans three electoral constituencies, and is the longest double tree-lined Avenue in the Northern Hemisphere with no retail outlets. It was named after Arthur Griffith who was the President of Dáil Éireann. The location of the property could not be more convenient situated just minutes from local shops and schools and a host of recreational and sporting facilities.
The location is simply superb within walking distance of the city centre and convenient to the numerous shops, cafes, bars and restaurants Drumcondra Village has to offer. Dublin City University is within easy walking distance and with a variety of good sports clubs, Botanic Gardens, a great selection of national and secondary schools, Churches, Hospitals and Medical Centres locally. Commuting further afield is made very easy with the M50, M1 Motorways and Dublin Airport within a few minutes' drive. The area is very well serviced by public transport, through many bus routes which pass close by. Drumcondra Rail Station and Clontarf DART station are within easy reach.
