Digital shower and bath-filler on hand
La Bas Mews, Effra Road, Dublin 6
This development of four mews homes has been awaited since the launch of its sister project on Effra Road last November from Golden Horde Developments.
These properties are two-bed town houses but have a study on the first floor which could convert to another bedroom if required.
The master bedroom is ensuite and there is a bathroom also. All rooms have oak flooring while the bathrooms are tiled and come with a digital shower and bath-filler, for which one trusts a degree in electronics isn't required to operate!
Downstairs the hall runs right through to the rear so light comes via the kitchen which is fully equipped with integrated appliances and solid oak worktops.
There is clever storage hidden behind the lacquered cabinets and open shelving adds to the modern look. There is ceramic flooring in the kitchen portion while the dining/living area in the open-plan ground floor has oak flooring fitted.
The living area has a gas fire and there is a WC and understairs storage also. The lighting within the house takes advantage of the 9ft ceilings, double-height hall window and a roof light.
The units are south-west facing and French doors provide access to the landscaped terrace to the rear. Up front there is a pebbled strip way and paving behind stone walls and planters have been added also. There is a carport concealed within each unit, underneath the property. Exteriors are a pale brown brick all round with grey contrast on the windows and doors making it a contemporary look.
Those concerned about security will like the video intercom to the gated development which is in a secure lane in the heart of Rathmines. The mews' measure 1,076 sq ft and will be priced at €595,000. The builder is Kilkieran and the energy rating is A3.
Rathmines is 2.3km from St. Stephen's Green and residents are well served with 23 restaurants and 14 pubs in the village. Effra Road is located between Leinster Road West and Grosvener Place.
