Old and new side by side in D8
94 Emmet Road €550k
Inchicore was an area that became very popular with young professionals during the boom times. Affordable houses close to town saw eager buyers flock to viewings in an attempt to settle in the new hotspot. The houses in the area benefited from this surge of interest, as the new residents poured money into renovations and refurbishments.
The results can be seen in houses like the one at 94 Emmet Road, which has been upgraded and extended to create a living space of 1,539 sq ft. Period features, like cast iron fireplaces and detailed plasterwork, have been restored and placed side by side with new elements, such as engineered wood flooring, glossy units and mosaic tiles.
The living room is open-plan with a bay window and marble fireplace. This leads into the kitchen and dining area with floor-to-ceiling windows and cerise pink units. There is also a guest bathroom on the ground floor with black and white mosaic tiles.
Upstairs are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The main bedroom has an en-suite, cast iron fireplace and built-in wardrobes. The attic has been converted and is currently being used as an additional bedroom, but could be turned into a home office. There is another en-suite bathroom in the attic, with mosaic tiling and a heated towel rail.
The front garden is laid in lawn with steps leading up to the hall door. The rear garden is south-facing with a paved patio and long lawn. At the end of the garden is a block-built shed with pedestrian and car access.
There is solar panel-fed underfloor heating on the ground and first floors, an alarm and double glazing throughout.
Inchicore and Kilmainham villages are within walking distance, and the Goldenbridge Luas stop is close by.
