For sale by Paul Tobin Estate Agents via the iamsold Bidding Platform Set in the tranquil northern bank of the river Liffey bordering the villages of Chapelizod and Lucan, the area was named on account of the fruits once grown and sold there along the side of the road. This cottage style period property is a real Strawberry Beds gem and looks idyllic in its countryside setting with a gleaming traditional whitewash faé§ade. The deceptive faé§ade tells a very different story once you step inside the front door as every inch of available space has been maximised to its fullest. An impressive loft inspired first floor opens up onto a private decked terrace which attracts a glorious south facing sun. Built around the 1850s, the characterful home with its cottage half door was built as part of a row of three farmworkers dwellings and later additions have utilised the entire footprint of the property. The property offers enormous potential for a new owner to be creative allowing them to put their own stamp on it. On entering through the front door, you will arrive in the open plan kitchen and living room which is separated by a breakfast bar. Evidence of the era is a feature wall with exposed original stone and a traditional open fireplace with brick surround. The vaulted ceiling with wood paneling gives a sense of airiness to the room and a Velux window over the kitchen beams in the natural light. Beyond the living area is an internal hallway which leads to a spacious study that was once used as an informal bedroom due to having only an overhead Velux window. On the opposite side of the hallway is a smaller yet useful room fitted out with a range of floor to ceiling storage cupboards. The main bathroom is fully tiled with a full size bath and a feature stained glass lead window adding yet more character to this distinctive home. The internal hallway then opens out to a further reception where the stairs to the first floor is positioned. This room has enormous potential, a wonderful space presented as a blank canvass with a wall to wall fitted display unit. At the foot of the stairs to the left is an enclosed internal boiler room where the Firebird oil burner is positioned, not unusual for properties of this age. A carpeted stairway leads to the first floor where you will immediately get a sense of the additional space this rare home has to offer. The propertys doubled pitch roof provides countryside views through the first floor Velux windows and a birds eye view over the rooftops can be achieved at the top of the three tier sun terrace which some might prefer to call a roof terrace. The outdoor space is accessed via a timber framed glass panel sliding door with overhead bespoke glass panes forming a unique architectural feature to the outdoor setting. The roomy landing area that was once a second bedroom, is currently laid out as a home office with a built in desk and lounging area. The master bedroom comes with a fully tiled ensuite bathroom with a shower enclosure and electric shower. There is also a Velux window and a framed overhead window for added light to include a toilet, sink and radiator. Once a popular honeymoon destination for Dubliners; it was also James Joyce's favourite spot, the property is positioned on the Lower Road of Strawberry Beds while the river Liffey flows beyond the field directly across the road from the property.
