Mount Carmel, at 12 Calderwood Road in Drumcondra, Dublin 9, is a classically handsome period red-brick house with bay windows.

In 2007 it was refurbished and significantly extended, adding a large and impressive kitchen at the back of the house and taking the total floor space up to 2,618 sq ft.

There’s a porthole window next to the front door, shedding light on the hallway, which has travertine marble floor tiles and a replacement staircase, though still open-string.

To the left are two reception rooms retaining original features. There’s a sitting room to the front, where the bay window is. This room has a marble fireplace and sliding doors opening to the second reception room behind it.

Double glass doors in this room and at the end of the entrance hall open to the kitchen extension, which measures over 33ft x 27ft. That’s a total of almost 900 sq ft in one room alone, which makes it bigger than many apartments on the market.

The kitchen area has white cabinets with black marble countertops and a centre island, and in the living area there’s a wall of windows overlooking the garden, and a gas-fitted fireplace.

The former garage adjoining the house has been converted to a utility room, guest toilet and store room off the kitchen.

The three bedrooms are on the first floor. The master bedroom has an ensuite with a power shower and the second bedroom has two walk-in wardrobes, no less, as well as an ensuite. Another room at attic level might be used as an extra bedroom or study.

There’s a lawn and parking at the front, while out the back is an 80ft garden that has a garage with laneway access.

The agent is Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500 and the asking price is €850,000.
