Price reduced for period prospect in Dun Laoghaire
THE asking price for a period Dun Laoghaire property with multiple options has been reduced from €850,000 to €750,000. Located at 2 Northumberland Avenue, off George's Street, the property could suit an owner-occupier or investor for either office or residential uses or both.
It comprises a two-storey-over-garden-level terraced house extending to 2,368sq ft, together with a two-storey mews to the rear extending to 646sq ft. Joint agents are Maguire Chartered Surveyors and DNG.
Last used as offices, many of its period features are intact and it has planning permission for change of use from commercial to residential. Such conversion could be easily accomplished as it retains a kitchen at ground floor level, two toilets and a shower room.
Alternatively there may be potential for an owner occupier to generate either office or residential income from the mews and/or the garden level as the latter has its own separate entrance.
Among the features of the main house are the relatively large rooms, cornicing, ceiling roses and high ceilings. It also has a bay window on the top storey.
An archway under part of the mews provides access to rear off-street parking.
Eamonn Maguire says a number of period commercial properties in the area have been converted to residential use during the last 18 months.
These properties include two on Mulgrave Street, one on Clarinda Park North and one on Crofton Avenue. One of the recent sales retained its commercial use.
