56 Beaumont Road, Whitehall, Dublin 9 €525,000
When this 1930’s red brick semi-trailer hit the market 12 years ago, it was, in line with the old industry euphemism, “in need of modernization”. In 2011, the current owners took it into their own hands, restoring it to its former glory and incorporating modern retrofit technology. The result is a warm home with bay windows and an expanded floor area of 1,163 square feet and a C1 BER.
With an attached garage to the side, planning permission is pending for another architect-designed addition of a generous 753 square feet, which would double the size of the average three bed semi detached home.
To the left of the entrance hall with original varnished wooden floorboards is a living room with bay window, decorative fireplace, cornice ceiling and wooden floor. This leads to a dining room which in turn connects to an extended kitchen/family room that runs the full width of the home with center island, recessed lighting, skylights, porcelain tile flooring and floor to ceiling glass doors to the back garden.
At the end of the 90 foot lawned garden is a Loghouse Eco garden room with full electrics and wifi, currently used as a home office/playroom.
Back inside there is a utility room and guest toilet downstairs and three bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs. The house has gas central heating with zoned thermostat control.
Beaumont Road is a 20 minute walk from DCU, Beaumont Hospital, schools and facilities such as Ellenfield and Albert College Parks and the Omni and Artane Shopping Centres. It is a 10 minute drive from Dublin Airport and 20 minutes from the city centre.
No56 is for sale at Sherry FitzGerald Killester (01) 833 6555 for €525,000.
