WHILE MANY HOME design and architecture trends come and go, a redbrick exterior remains a timeless classic. Common in Victorian and Edwardian architecture, red brick is still widely used today, a testament to its appeal across generations.
This week we’re looking at four redbrick properties around the country – from a character-filled three-bed in Dublin 8 to a stylish five-bed in Glenageary.
A three-bed property, 30 Saran Wood is an attractive family home. It comes to the market in walk-in condition, with features including solid wood floors, a well-appointed kitchen and dining room, and a private rear garden which is not overlooked.
There are two double bedrooms and one single bedroom on the first floor, while the attic has been converted into a 355 sq ft spacious bedroom and en suite bathroom with a jacuzzi bath. There are a number of schools within walking distance, while the Bray seafront is a 10 minute drive away.
If you’re looking for a unique home in the heart of the capital, 7 Chaworth Terrace could be the one for you. Situated between Thomas Street and Meath Street, the three-bed property is a hidden gem. It benefits from a two-storey extension to the rear, allowing for a bright and spacious living, kitchen and dining area.
French doors open to the rear garden, which is south-facing and features a purpose-built home office/studio and a built-in BBQ. The interior includes modern finishes and period features throughout, including exposed brick, cast iron radiators and sash windows.
Measuring 1,493 sq ft, 89 Cherrywood is a bright and stylish five-bed home. The ground floor accommodation comprises a large reception room, a modern kitchen/dining room, a spacious utility room, a guest bathroom and a family room.
On the first floor, there are five bedrooms with luxurious carpets and built-in wardrobes, a family bathroom and an en suite bathroom. The property benefits from numerous updates, including new laminate floors, new blinds and new windows. To the rear, there’s a landscaped garden with two patio areas.
Located on a manicured site of one acre, Oak Lodge is an impressive property of 5,005 sq ft. The six-bed house is approached via a sweeping driveway. Also outside the main house are picture-perfect lawns, a BBQ area, a garage which has been converted into a home office, and a workshop.
The accommodation boasts multiple reception rooms, including a sun room and a living room with a bar, while each bedroom features an en suite bathroom.
