38 Adelaide Road boasts beautiful views over the canal.


WITH VIEWS OF the Grand Canal to its rear and St Stephen’s Green just a 10-minute stroll away, 38 Adelaide Road boasts a highly coveted Dublin city centre location.

The three-bed end-of-terrace home features a unique interior and layout, and was refurbished and redesigned with a high level of attention to detail. So much so, the property won at the Opus Architecture and Construction Awards when it was completed.


The most impressive element of this house is the glass extension to the rear, which looks right out onto the leafy banks of the canal and fills the space with natural light.


Stepping through the red front door, the double height sunroom is at the end of the hallway. With room to seat at least six, this is the perfect spot to entertain. There’s an exposed brick wall here, while glass doors open to a patio area with access to the canal walkway.

There’s plenty of space to dine al fresco on the patio, which also features a detached home office. 


The master bedroom is adjacent to the sunroom, with wall-to-wall bookshelves, built-in furniture, a feature gas fire and underfloor heating in here. A door leads through to the extensive walk-in wardrobe, and through to the en suite bathroom with a beautiful bay window which overlooks the front garden. 

There’s a spacious utility room off the sunroom, as well as access to the second bedroom.


Moving to the first floor via the open polished timber staircase, the open-plan living, kitchen and dining area is here. This double height space is bright and airy, while the glass extension allows for views over the canal.

A polished timber floor runs throughout this area and through to the kitchen, which is fitted with sleek cabinets and modern appliances. Allowing for even more natural light, a bay window in the kitchen looks out onto Adelaide Road.


At mezzanine level, ample built-in storage space means this room could easily function as a study or library.


Offering more than meets the eye, 38 Adelaide Road is an ideal city centre pad for buyers who are looking for something different.
