IF YOU’RE LOOKING for a property with plenty of character close to Dublin city centre, this two-bed bungalow could be the one for you.
Located in Stoneybatter, Dublin 7, 43 Ben Edair Road is an attractive property of 645 sq ft.
Built in 1910, the bungalow has had several updates and refurbishments over the years, as well as an extension to the rear. It also boasts a large private back garden, something that’s not easy to find so close to the city centre.
Stepping inside, the hallway leads straight through to the living room, which in turn gives access to the kitchen and dining room extension. The living room is a warm and welcoming space, with the navy walls and ceiling creating a cosy and modern feel. There’s built-in storage in here and an integrated stove for cold winter nights.
In contrast, the kitchen and dining room is a bright and airy space. The kitchen enjoys a rustic feel, with timber counter tops and storage, while the Belfast sink and hanging storage on one wall add a stylish touch.
A table to seat six could easily fit in the dining space, where double doors open to a large decking area. This is the ideal spot to dine al fresco or to enjoy sunny summer evenings, while steps lead to a spacious lawn area which is rich in mature trees and shrubs. To the end of the garden, there’s a utility area and greenhouse.
The single bedroom is located to the front of the house, and would make for a comfortable home office or child’s bedroom. The second bedroom is much larger, and features fitted wardrobes and sash-style windows.
The family bathroom completes the accommodation, with a bath and pressure shower here.
There’s on-street parking to the front of No 43, although a car might not be necessary given the convenience of the location. There’s a wealth of amenities within walking distance, including schools, shops, restaurants and bars. The heart of Stoneybatter is but a stone’s throw away, while the walk to Smithfield is just 15 minutes. The Phoenix Park is also a convenient 10 minute walk away.
If you’re travelling further afield, there’s no shortage of public transport links nearby, including the Luas, Dublin Bus and train services at Heuston Station.
With a stellar location and a charming, attractive interior, 43 Ben Edair Road is sure to appeal to any house-hunter who prioritises being close to the city centre and all it has to offer.
