Hopkins Ward have the absolute pleasure to present 53 The Coombe to the sales market, a stunning red-brick artisan dwelling in Dublin 8, which combines the benefits of city-centre living with an ultra rare suntrap garden right in the heart of town.
The surrounding Liberties area is rich in history and this property is equally as charming. 53 The Coombe is a stunning 2-bedroom, mid-terraced property in one of the most sought-after areas in Dublin 8.
Just a short stroll from a number of vibrant cafes, restaurants, pubs, parks and a host of amenities, this property is within a 15-minute walk to Grafton Street, the Luas green line at St Stephen€TM Green and Trinity College. The Luas red line is also only a 15-minute walk away. 53 The Coombe is ideally located for public transport routes and within walking distance of two major hospitals.
While the property originally dates from the early 1900€TM when the area was home to local artisans, it was purchased by the current owners in 2014 and the house has undergone a number of improvement works and upgrades.
On entering the house, it becomes immediately obvious the attention to detail that the current owners have made in décor and space. Wooden floors in the living room, bright wall colours and natural light flooding from front to back make for an inviting warm space. The main living space benefits from a working open fireplace, which adds to the overall charm.
The kitchen is accessed directly from the living room and is a long galley style space. It is flooded in natural light as there is direct access to the rear garden, which is one of the many unique selling points of the home.
The garden is a proverbial sun trap with an artificial lawn and raised flower beds. A peaceful, sheltered space, rarely in this central part of the city is such a significant outdoor area available in an artisan dwelling. Beautifully-matured flowers and planting means this wonderful urban jungle provides a serene setting just minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
The main bathroom is also located at ground floor level. It is a tiled space with modern sanitary ware and a newly-installed electric shower.
Ascending to the first floor, the master bedroom spans the width of the house and overlooks the €old€TMCoombe, made famous in song and story of Dublin folklore. An original fireplace and a new sash window add to the appeal and charm of this room.
