***PRESTIGIOUS ADDRESS / SEMI-DETACHED / SOUTH FACING / CONVERTED ATTIC*** KELLY BRADSHAW DALTON have the pleasure of presenting No.394 Griffith Avenue, Drumcondra, Dublin 9 to the market. Located on the prestigious Griffith Avenue, this magnificent five bedroom, semi-detached (plus attic converted) family home, comes to the market in pristine condition having been lovingly upgraded and modernised in 2007 to create a wonderfully warm, spacious, and very welcoming family home. Originally built in c.1930, this stunning renovated property is one of the finest examples of a home that reflects the grandeur of the art deco era. Combining today's modern amenities, and many of the original features immaculately cared for and maintained, it showcases a property that mixes the classical with the contemporary exquisitely, resulting in a home of comfortable opulence and beautifully proportioned rooms that have been designed to stand the test of time. Add to this one of the finest addresses and you have certainly one of the most desirable homes in North Dublin. On arrival along the picturesque and mature leafy tree lined Griffith Avenue, you are greeted with an impressive sweeping driveway capable of accommodating two/three vehicles. The property boasts a low maintenance private front garden with cobble drive and easy to maintain shrubbery. The exterior is very attractive, double frontage with partial red brick facade and large box bay windows allow a hint of what lies behind the front door! On crossing the threshold through the beautiful stained glass and panel door, one will find an imposing and impressive home which enjoys a modern floor plan, generous proportions, 9ft height ceilings and interconnecting rooms, all overflowing with bright and natural light. Hardwood flooring effortlessly sweeps from one room to the next creating a seamless finish. To your right of the beautiful entrance hallways is the living room, the first of three reception rooms. The formal living room is a wonderful sumptuous "grown up" space decorated in fresh muted tones, featuring the original open fireplace and boasts a stunning box bay window with original architravings that frame the views overlooking mature leafy trees along Griffith Avenue. Through the original wooden sliding double doors, you are led into the formal dining room or second family living room again with a beautiful feature fireplace, original hardwood flooring and double doors that invite you into the stunning open plan kitchen cum dining room. Extended in 2007, the kitchen is a showstopper that will simply impress all who see it. Vaulted ceilings with recessed lighting and skylight set the tone, a space that would be ideal for entertaining or dining with family and friends. Stunning Hand-crafted solid oak units were meticulously designed and fitted by Wynns of Woodpark, complete with envious black granite worktops and stunning marble floors. The kitchen Island creates a welcome divide to the space and is a fantastic addition for any busy family. French doors open out onto the rear garden, and what a beautiful garden with granite terrace it is. A South facing sun trap, private and not overlooked it is the most idyllic setting where the whole family can gather and enjoy. Framed by a beautiful cherry blossom and lilac tree, one can sit back and enjoy the bloom in spring on the granite patio, which was fitted by Ocean Stone in 2017 to allow for outdoor entertaining and dining. There is also a wonderful, manicured lawn area and garden shed (with electricity) for further storage. Thinking of every convenience, when upgrading the property, the current owners installed electricity sockets (3pin) both in front and at the rear of the house as well as garden taps. Back inside off the kitchen is the separate fully plumbed utility room, creating ample additional space and fitted with cream shaker style units, wooden work tops and hardwood flooring. There is also access to the rear garden. To right of the hallway is the converted garage, which is the fifth bedroom, but currently used as a playroom/study, that has been fitted with bespoke built-in cupboards, creating a neat seamless storage solution for clothes, toys or office equipment. This is the ideal solution for those working from home, or families looking for an extra double bedroom or separate playroom for the little ones to comfortably enjoy. The current owner rewired the property and installed under floor heating in the kitchen, utility room and playroom/study in 2007, as well as a new gas heating system and a brand-new boiler installed in 2018. The property has also been fully rewired. Not to be outdone and equally impressive is the upstairs accommodation. Accessed by a spectacular split-level staircase with original 1930s feature bannisters and carpet flooring, guide us to the second floor, consisting of three large double bedrooms, a single bedroom and family bathroom. The master bedroom has been fitted with hand crafted bespoke built-in wardrobes, as well as box bay window with original architrave. There are three further double bedrooms, one with built in storage. Completing this level is the fully marble tiled family bathroom with bath, separate shower, hand basin, w.c and heated towel rack. Just when you thought there was no more to see, this stunning home continues to surprise us. The current owners renovated the attic space to create a fantastic additional room complete with storage front and back, views of the Dublin mountains and all accessed by a fully installed sweeping staircase to match the original stairs. Location is of real importance when it comes to No.394 Griffith Avenue. Only a stone's throw from a wealth of amenities such as shops, restaurants, and public transport links providing easy access to the City Centre. Further amenities in the locality include All Hallows College, Maryfield Secondary School, Ard Scoil Ris and DCU. For the sports enthusiast Na Fianna Club is right on your doorstep, as well as Croke Park are only a short distance away. Griffith Avenue is famous for its tree lined wide footpaths, ideal for a leisurely stroll or for the more athletic joggers, and you also have the stunning Botanical gardens just a short distance away. The City Centre is a short bus ride away and commuters are very well catered for in the area with several bus routes serving the locale in addition to close proximity to the M1 & M50 making this the ideal setting for a family home.
