Located in the heart of Dublin 8, No 8 Watkins Buildings is being offered for sale for the first time in its history, having been in the same family since Watkins Buildings and the adjacent Watkins Square were built - according to history - in the late 1800's / early 1900's. These lovely brown / red brick artisan cottages were constructed by the owners of the original Watkins Brewery which was based on Ardee Street, for its valued brewery workers. Described by Casey as "rows of attractive artisan dwellings in brown and red brick of c. 1880." Apparently this brewery dated from the early 18th century and was producing beer long before their near neighbour in the same trade at James Gate. They amalgamated with Jameson Pim & Co in 1904, and continued to operate until 1937 when, it is said, the company went into voluntary liquidation. These homes are no less attractive today to anyone who wishes to live close to the city centre but within a vibrant local community. Steeped in history, with its handsome brick façade and still with its original boot scraper and ornate anchor plates, this 2 bedroomed terraced home which will benefit from some modernisation, heating etc enjoys an extremely convenient location, with many trendy bars and restaurants as well as numerous specialist shops in the immediate vicinity. Within walking distance of St Stephens Green and the city centre, numerous bus routes traverse the area and the LUAS Green and Red Lines are both available locally. Close to a huge number of attractions, Christchurch Cathedral, St Patricks Cathedral, Guinness Storehouse, St Patricks Park, the NCAD, the Camden Quarter and Dublin Castle are all within easy distance. Ready for a new owner to place their own individual stamp and upgrades, laid out over two levels, the property comprises entrance hall, kitchen to the front still with the lovely original fireplace, good sized living/ dining room, lobby with access to the rear yard and shower room. On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms with the main bedroom to the front. DISCLAIMER The information provided constitutes a general guideline only.
