MOVEHOME ESTATE AGENTS ... are honoured to offer a truly delightful 3-bedroom period residence that sits with pride and grace, on a quiet stretch of one of the most desirable roads in this established Dublin 9 area. No. 144 Griffith Avenue is a spacious family home spanning 133 m / 1,432 ft with handsome proportions and many elegant features throughout. This property also benefits from a large south facing private rear garden, which is not overlooked at the back and enjoys sweeping views of the Wicklow mountains. The private garden itself is approx. 60ft long and 35ft wide and gives the new owners ample room to extend the original structure in style or even build another outhouse/studio/playroom to the very rear of the garden, as there is ample space to enjoy. This is without doubt one of the best opportunities to come to the market this year on the Avenue and gives the new owners a wonderful blank canvas to modernise and extend (subject to P.P). This elegant home has been with the same family for nearly sixty years and was originally constructed in the early 1930's. The care by the current owners results in the creation of a captivating light filled interior, that compliments the original design and viewing is the only way to appreciate all this wonderful home has to offer.

The accommodation comprises of a welcoming entrance hallway with two large interconnecting reception rooms located off the main hall, with high ceilings, prominent fireplaces and the original quality wooden flooring. The front living room has a large bay window that enjoys sweeping views of the avenue and discreet double doors lead to the dining room. This spacious room enjoys all its original features and overlooks the rear private garden. The ground floor also enjoys an easy access to the kitchen with a seperate breakfast room, enjoying access to the rear garden and side utility area. There is a spacious garage to the front and access to the garage is off the side utility area, which has the rear access blocked and entry is enjoyed from the breakfast room.

Upstairs, there is a spacious landing area which is flooded with natural light and gives access to all three generous sized bedrooms, two doubles and a single room. The main double rooms are large and all enjoy original wooden flooring with the front double room hosting a bay feature window overlooking the Avenue. The bathroom is tiled, with an original bath in the corner with separate access to an original WC. Attic access is from the landing and hosts a spacious attic 16ft x 9ft that is partly floored and spacious area could be converted to a 4th bedroom or playroom which would be ideal for the growing family.

The gardens are a particular feature of the property with ample off-street parking to the front in a stone driveway enjoying mature shrubbery and trees. The rear garden had originally side pedestrian access and is a beautifully maintained 60ft rear south facing garden which is lawned and planted with a selection of mature trees & shrubs. The garden enjoys an abundance of recreational areas, ideal for al fresco entertainment and the bottom of the garden hosts another hidden area surrounded by mature trees.

Griffith Avenue runs through Glasnevin, Drumcondra and down to Marino and was named after Arthur Griffith who was once the President of Dail Eireann. The location is simply superb within walking distance of the city centre and convenient to the numerous shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants Drumcondra & Fairview Villages have to offer. Dublin City University is within easy walking distance and with a variety of good sports clubs, The Botanic Gardens and a fantastic 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 relatively short drive. The area is very well serviced by public transport, through many bus routes which pass close by and Drumcondra Rail Station and Clontarf DART station are within easy reach.
