* A PERIOD 5 BEDROOM PROPERTY CIRCA.1928
MOVEHOME ESTATE AGENTS ... are honoured to offer a truly delightful 5 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. 159 Griffith Avenue is a spacious family home, with the same family for over 50 years, spanning 200 m / 2153 ft with handsome proportions and many elegant features throughout. This property also benefits from one of the largest rear gardens on this popular road and the garden is approx 110ft long and 35ft wide, which gives the new owners ample room to extend the original structure or even build an outhouse/studio/playroom to the very rear of the long garden. The immensely spacious interior greatly compliments the original design and viewing is the only way to appreciate all this home has to offer.
The accommodation comprises a welcoming entrance hallway with ample storage facilities and a seperate downstairs WC, which in the original design of the late 1920's was to be a modern internal phone booth! Two interconnecting reception rooms are located off the main hall to the front overlooking the Avenue, with high ceilings, period fireplaces and the original quality wooden flooring under the carpeted floor. The front living room has a prominent bay window that enjoys sweeping views of the avenue and discreet double doors lead to the dining room. The kitchen & breakfast room to the rear was extended and now enjoys access to the rear garden which it overlooks, and the kitchen has direct access a large utility room and a seperate rear office, with seperate garden access. There is also a large side garage with vehicle access, on both sides out to the rear garden which also hosts a purpose built seperate workroom.
Upstairs, there is a wonderful landing area which is flooded with natural light and has views of the rear garden. There are five generous sized bedrooms, all doubles with the master bedroom ensuite to the front. The rear extension hosts two double rooms and a playroom or additional living area. The main bathroom has a separate shower & WHB, and is fully tiled with an abundace of natural light. There is a seperate WC adjacent. Attic access is enjoyed from the landing and welcomes one to a very spacious attic that is partly floored and could be converted for the growing family.
To the side of the prominent property is a garage that is currently a storage area, boasting high ceilings 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 110ft rear garden which is quite 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 mature trees and hedges.
Griffith Avenue runs through Glasnevin, Drumcondra and down to Marino, spanning three electoral constituencies, and is the longest double tree-lined Avenue in the Northern Hemisphere with no retail outlets. The Avenue was named after Arthur Griffith who was the President of Dail Eireann in the early 1920's and it was developed in the mid 1920's completing towards Glasnevin in the early 1930's. 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 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.
