Period terrace close to Botanic Gardens
72 Whitworth Road, Drumcondra, Dublin 9
Four-bedroom period terrace with many original features
THIS 144sqm brick house requires some modernisation, but has the potential to make a beautiful period home, as it still has many of its original features, including doors, architraves, high ceilings, coving, dado rails, fireplaces and floorboards.
Accommodation on the ground floor comprises a porch and entrance hall with understairs storage; two large reception rooms with interconnecting double doors. Both rooms have marble/tile fireplaces, while the room at the front has a large bay window; a galley kitchen extension with some fitted units; breakfast room; utility area with sliding double doors into the back garden; and a guest bathroom.
The four bedrooms and small family bathroom are upstairs. Three of the bedrooms are doubles and have fireplaces, while the fourth is a single room.
To the rear is a partly concreted garden with rear access for a car..
The house overlooks the Royal Canal and is close to the city centre and the Botanic Gardens.
Pros: Walls are painted in neutral colours throughout.
Cons: It needs imaginative decor and landscaping.
