53 Harold Road is a must see for anyone looking to buy in the Stoneybatter area. This exceptionally bright 2 bedroom house has undergone a complete Architecturally designed renovation. Every effort has been made to maximise the sense of space and light in this early 20th century terrace property. The upgraded house boasts an impressive B3 BER Rating, having been fully insulated and fitted with a high efficiency gas boiler while retaining the open fireplaces and original floor boards.
The accommodation comprises of entrance lobby (which can be opened and incorporated into the main living room, or left closed for privacy), large living room with ample living space and additional under stairs storage. As you walk through to the kitchen / dining area you cannot but be impressed with the architect’s use of space, with tall white kitchen units and the floor to ceiling aluminium framed doors to the garden. The garden is floored with granite slabs and has a mirrored wall at the back which gives the illusion of additional space.
Also in the kitchen your eye cannot but be drawn to the orange wall/door which leads you to the bathroom/wetroom. The architect eschewed the convention of defining the door in a separate colour so it just reads as a large wall. On to the first floor you are led by a stairs painted in white and yellow which provides another fun feature within the property. On the landing you are met with two double bedrooms both with excellent storage. There is stira access to the attic storage.
The house has been refurbished to a high standard of modern design and finish and offers a tremendous walk in opportunity in this highly regarded residential location. This property really is a real gem and we have no doubt will generate lots of interest.
The location is superb, combining the peace and quiet with the bustling village atmosphere of Stoneybatter, only a couple of minutes’ walk away. The area is renowned for its many specialist shops, delis, bakeries, cafes and restaurants. There are plenty of supermarkets locally. One of the main attractions of the area is the fabulous Phoenix Park which is only a 10 minute walk away.
For those working in the city centre, it is a pleasant stroll, with public transport also available at Heuston Station, the LUAS stop at Smithfield and proposed stops at Broadstone and Grangegorman. On-street permit parking is available on Harold Road. There are three bus routes with stops on the North Circular Road and Manor Street while the M50 allows easy access to the Airport. An exciting development in the area is the new DIT campus at Grangegorman due to be completed in 2017.
