“South facing period home in Dublin 6”

Young’s Estate Agents are pleased to offer 11 Belgrave Road, Rathmines, Dublin 6 to the market. This fine three storey Victorian property with lots of period features and a rich history is set on one of Dublin’s most attractive roads which has links to the 1916 Rising. Even the fact that the terraced redbrick is for sale for the first time since it was built is a rare thing these days. It was built in the 1860s by Patrick Plunkett, who also developed nearby Palmerston Road and several other redbrick roads in Dublin 6. When his son, George, married in 1884, this house and the rest of the terrace was part of his marriage settlement, while his bride, Josephine Cranny, daughter of another major property developer, brought a terrace of houses on Marlborough Road in Donnybrook as part of her dowry. The well-heeled couple headed off to America on a honeymoon that lasted two years and let out their houses to mostly professional or higher level civil servants who at the time were happy to rent. Their son, Joseph Mary Plunkett, was a leader in the 1916 Rising. He never lived in Belgrave Road but nearby in the neighbourhood of Upper Fitzwilliam Street.

It’s a wonderfully flexible house that is sure to appeal to a wide array of purchasers.

This splendid Victorian home offers generous accommodation of approximately 238.9 m² / 2571 ft² over its three levels. The property is currently occupied by a family but historically was laid out in 3 self-contained units, which remains as an option today. Rarely does a property offer both residential and investment opportunities. The ground floor own door entrance unit consists of entrance/hallway, large under stairs storage, two bedrooms, one bathroom, living room with door leading to kitchen. From the kitchen there is access to patio and the large south facing garden. The upper two floors are accessed on the 1st floor and consist of entrance/hallway, large open plan kitchen/dining room, one double bedroom, a shower room and a utility room with access down to the garden. On the first floor return is a bathroom. On the next floor there are 3 bedrooms (one currently used as a living room) and a 4th bedroom/study on the 2nd return. To the front, the traditional railed garden is laid in lawn with granite steps up to hall level and down to garden level. Also of significant merit is the sizeable, private and wonderfully mature south facing rear garden which offers the keen gardener a treasure trove of options with its abundance of plants, shrubs and flowers and the mature trees offer excellent privacy. Parking is on street disc parking for circa 2 to 3 cars and is plentiful.

• The property has been modernised and maintained over the years with some major works carried out in 1992 and further work carried out in 2005, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Belgrave Road is ideally located mid-way betwen Ranelagh and Rathmines, within walking distance of Dunville Avenue and the host of shops and eateries it has to offer. Beechwood Luas stop is within five minutes' walk which allows further ease of access to the city centre and further afield. Some of Dublin's best schools including Ranelagh Multi-Denominational School, Gael Scoil Lios na Nog, Scoil Bhride, Kildare Place School, Gonzaga College, Sandford Park College, Alexandra College, St Mary's College, Muckross Park College and St. Louis High School are also within easy walking distance. We look forward to showing you around this wonderful property that offers plenty of options for both the owner occupier and investor.
