Mullery O’Gara are delighted to present 16 Arbutus Avenue to the open market.  This stylish 1920s brick fronted mid terrace period house c. 142 SqM / 1,528 SqFt oozes character and benefits from an excellent B2 energy rating. Situated in a triangle of land forming part of Harold’s Cross situated within Dublin 12, Arbutus Avenue is a  highly convenient, quiet, mature and neighbourly cul de sac immediately off leafy green banks of the Grand Canal.  

The property has been completely upgraded, remodelled and extended by its present owners with no expense spared to provide all the comforts required for modern day living. Features include a magnificent open plan kitchen/dining/family area with glazed sliding doors to low maintenance gardens.  

Tastefully presented throughout the property benefits from a south-west facing rear garden and a garage which leads to a secure, private vehicular laneway.  The garage provides ample additional storage for bikes, firewood, gardening equipment etc and could easily be converted into a convenient home office / summer house.

Set back behind wrought iron railings to the front and approached via a low maintenance front garden laid with a reclaimed red tile path, a porch entrance (flagged by granite cap stones either side) leads to a bright and welcoming entrance hall.  All front facing windowsills benefit from granite windowsills.

The hall presents with picture and dado rails with access to two bright interconnecting reception rooms, large open plan and light infused kitchen/dining/family room with w.c and whb off. Clever understairs storage in the hall opens to reveal a compact laundry facility.  The bespoke, hand painted solid ash kitchen features fully integrated appliances, including two Neff ovens, Neff gas hob and Neff extractor fan.

On the return is a double bedroom and bathroom with bath, w.c, whb. On the first floor are two further double bedrooms – the main with fitted wardrobes and ensuite shower room. There is a stairs from landing to a spacious attic room with built in mirrored, eaves storage.  The attic is currently used as a guest / au pair bedroom and amply fits a double bed.

Outside are low maintenance front and rear gardens with bedding, plants and garage.  The sunny rear garden benefits from glorious day round sun and is complimented by a modern, low maintenance raised planter which runs nearly the entire length of the garden adding to the character and charm of this truly delightful property.

Arbutus Avenue is a highly convenient, easily accessible and well established cul de sac.  It is a three-minute walk from Harold’s Cross bridge with Portobello (O.25km), Rathmines (1km) and Dublin city centre (2.5kms) all within walking distance.
