If it’s a home you can develop into the future rather than straight away then 19 Griffith Avenue in Dublin 9 might be just what you’re after.
This 3 bed semi-detached home comes to the market in superb condition and could be lived in as is. However, if you want to expand be it now or down the line then it also ticks those boxes too.
The property comes complete with a garage and attic that are ripe for converting allowing the potential for an extension or an enlargement should the need arise. This gives an element of future proofing meaning that the growing family may never need to move again.
Behind the handsome façade of the property lies a home that has been cherished and well cared for over the years.
Built in the 1930s as part of the renowned Marino initiative to create ‘a garden suburb’, the houses in this area remain as popular and as sought after as ever with their attractive architecture, high quality materials and practical design standing the test of time.
The traditional layout has the reception room to the front and a kitchen/dining room to the rear. The hall is spacious, bright and inviting and leads to the south-facing open plan kitchen/dining room that spans the full width of the house.
The charm and character of this house can be fully appreciated in the front facing reception room, which has a large bay window overlooking the leafy tree-lined avenue, an open fire and original polished floorboards. All rooms have generous dimensions and feature high ceilings.
Upstairs, there are three good sized bedrooms. The main bedroom has a bright modern ensuite while the main bathroom has been modernised and includes the original restored cast iron bath.
The attic height lends itself to conversion subject to planning and further enhances the possibilities of this home. Currently it has storage and a folding stairs for ease of access.
Outside to the rear lies a private south facing mature garden. An idyllic space with a pretty patio and lawn surrounded by mature plants and hedging, it is ideal for gardeners, children, dogs and sun seekers alike.
Number 19 has a particularly nice location on Griffith Avenue and lies near the junction of the Malahide Road. Residents can enjoy a wealth of amenities on their doorstep including a choice of well-regarded primary and secondary schools across the road and along Griffith Avenue itself. There are also numerous cafés, restaurants and bars in the surrounding environs alongside a selection of supermarkets and other retail shopping.
Fairview village and neighbourhood hosts a vibrant mix of shops, restaurants and delicatessens. Active outdoor enthusiasts can also enjoy leafy Fairview Park and Clontarf's seafront promenade within minutes. In addition, excellent transport links include numerous bus routes in and out of the city, Clontarf Road Dart Station, Connolly Station and LUAS Stop. Rail services at Clontarf Road Station are only minutes away and St Patrick's College, TUD Grangegorman and Trinity College can all be reached within comfortable walking or cycling distance.
This is a warm and inviting home, presented in great condition ready for immediate occupation.
