CITY LIVING OFFERS many advantages: you’ll have endless entertainment, cultural and practical amenities to choose from, you’ll be within walking distance of almost everything you need, and if you do have to travel a bit, you’ll be well placed to access public transport.
One thing it doesn’t tend to offer a lot of though, is space. Buyers who have their heart set on a back garden or room for a young family to grow generally end up house-hunting further out – or they get lucky enough to snap up a rare gem like one of these new builds in Rathmines.
The three terraced homes at Grosvenor Lane each have three bedrooms, walled rear gardens and private parking spaces. The clever rectangular layout of these homes means that every square foot is used wisely – from the front you’d never guess the properties contained light-filled open-plan living areas, generous bedrooms and walk-in attics for extra storage.
High-quality wall, floor and roof insulation and solar panelling contribute to the A-rating of these homes, and other features include underfloor heating and triple glazed windows.
Residents of 70, 71 and 71A Grosvenor Lane will be within strolling distance of Rathmines, Harold’s Cross and Rathgar, with the city centre a 25 minute walk away too. For quicker access, there are frequent bus routes along Rathmines Rd and Harold’s Cross Rd.
For families, there’s a wide selection of schools, creches and sports facilities nearby, with UCD, TCD and Griffith College easily accessible also.
