2 St Anne’s Road, Drumcondra, Dublin 9
St Anne is said to be, among other things, the patron saint of women in labour. It’s entirely appropriate then that St Anne’s Road in Drumcondra is a mere 10-minute drive to the Rotunda Maternity Hospital at the top of O’Connell Street.
The saintly street is also a short walk from Croke Park. And with shops, cafés, bars and supermarkets around the corner on Lower Drumcondra Road and the Rotal Canal on the doorstep, No2 St Anne’s Road is blessed with one of the most convenient locations in the capital.
The terraced redbrick was reborn in 2018 when its current owners undertook comprehensive refurbishment works, which retained its period charm while adding modern bells and whistles. These include underfloor heating, spot lighting, a new combi boiler, automatic hall lighting, double-glazed windows and a toasty B3 BER.
Spanning 893 sq ft, accommodation includes a bright entrance hall with tiled flooring and recessed lights. Off this is a living room to the front and, to the rear, an open-plan kitchen with breakfast bar and dining area. Upstairs are two bedrooms (one with a walk-in wardrobe) and a main bathroom.
There’s on-street parking for residents and a courtyard at the back of the house with storage space for bicycles, useful since it’s a short cycle into town. St Patrick’s College, the Mater Hospital, Botanic Gardens and the grounds of Holy Cross College are all within walking distance.
Drumcondra village has come into its own in recent years regarding options for eating out. Le Petit Breton Artisan Crêperie, Restaurant 104, San Sab and The Lovely Food Company are among the popular eateries in the area. No2 St Anne’s Road is on the market for €495,000 with Sherry FitzGerald Drumcondra.
