MOVEHOME Estate Agents ... are honoured to offer an exquisite 5 bedroom semi-detached property which spans over 206 m / 2217 ft of luxury on three separate levels with truly gorgeous proportions, Number 19 was beautifully refurbished throughout, sensitively restored and wonderfully extended by the current owner. A perfect balance of elegant accommodation by the renowned master builder Alexander Strain, who from the outset was determined to build spacious and high-quality family dwellings when he first started construction in the area on nearby Iona Road in 1904 and who constructed this prominent dwelling in 1912, This particular stretch of beautifully maintained period houses are set on elevated gardens and rarely come to the market. Number 19 has a captivating and stylishly presented interior that one would expect to see in an interior magazine. The light colours and intelligent furnishings provide a vibrant and contemporary feel to create an exceptional home of distinction, which combines enormous character with the classic style and all the comforts and conveniences one could wish for.

The accommodation comprises a large welcoming hallway with guest WC, original stain glass hall door and ceiling covings. There are two generously proportioned interconnecting reception rooms, the living room to the front has a beautiful walnut fireplace as the main focal point with a bay window flooding the room with light throughout the day. Discreet double doors lead to the family room also with an impressive original fireplace, high ceilings and modern French doors that lead to the private rear garden. Both rooms have polished original wooden floors and are beautifully decorated. The kitchen and breakfast room to the rear are fitted with a range of modern floor and wall units with plenty of room for the family dining area, which overlook the private beautifully landscaped rear garden. An office room off the kitchen is a hidden secret and leads onto the utility room and garage to the side.

On the first floor there are four generous sized double bedrooms, two of which have their original flooring and period fireplaces. Two family bathrooms are located down the landing, one of which is beside the rear double room and can easily become an ensuite. The winding stairs from the landing flows onto the second floor where a 5th double bedroom is located in the attic. This double room is generous in size and also has an original cast iron fireplace and window with a westerly orientation. Storage is also available in the attic and the access points are original and discreet.

The gardens are a particular feature in this fully refurbished period home, the front garden is partly laid in lawn with a sunken driveway designed to the front offering plenty of off-street parking, while not spoiling views of the garden from the house. There is an abundance of mature trees and shrubbery that create a wonderful setting. Garage access leads to the rear garden approx. 15m which has been professionally landscaped with no expense spared in creating a stunning contemporary garden with mature planting and lawn area. The westerly orientation ensures plenty of sunshine and the gardens are very private.

Old Ballymun Road has long been regarded as one of the most prestigious locations in Glasnevin, just a short stroll from both Drumcondra and Phibsborough villages and within a gentle stroll of the city centre. A well serviced public transport system is available close by with a Luas stop in Phibsborough. There are many amenities such as Griffith Park, the Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin Tennis Club and Na Fianna GAA club on the doorstep.
