Top Let: Grand designs on the property market
Published 29/05/2015 | 02:30
This little house on Cherryfield Avenue is tucked at the end of a cul-de-sac which is just off Sandford Road in the busy village of Ranelagh.
On the outside it has a white pebble-dash exterior, sash windows, brightly painted yellow front door and iron railings dividing off the low maintenance small front garden. So far, so cute.
On the inside however is a modern, fully refurbished property suitable for an executive or small family.
The entrance hall is a dramatic dark blue with chequer-board floor tiles leading under a corniced arch to the staircase.
There is a glass chandelier both here and in the living room where the high ceilings allow for this touch of decadence.
There are two inter-connecting rooms, currently furnished as living rooms, but one could be a dining or play room if preferred.
These have open cast-iron fireplaces, picture rails and large pvc sash windows.
The kitchen is sleek in grey matt colours with integrated appliances and the floor is tiled. The rooms are furnished throughout. Upstairs are two double bedrooms, both with fireplaces, harking back to the house's original era when such things were the only method of heating (and, presumably one had a maid to look after things).
A third single bedroom is currently configured as office space. There is a family bathroom also with Edwardian style fittings.
The interior decoration was recently completed by Fitout Interiors with attention to the original period.
Agent Alan McMurray says it would ideally suit a young professional couple working or living in the area or indeed in Dublin City Centre. "It's been completely refurbished and is just ready to walk in to."
Ranelagh must have the highest concentration of pubs and restaurants in the country while also being in close proximity to the city centre (2km), with a Luas stop and a myriad of bus routes.
