Longwood Avenue is one of Portobello’s most popular addresses and is a wonderful representation of Victorian Dublin. Number 32 is an elegant two storey, mid terraced, red-brick family home. Upon entering the spacious hall-way, one is immediately struck by the high ceilings, ornate arch and the intricate cornicing. There are many other original features throughout the house from the reclaimed tongue and groove wooden floors to the stained-glass window overlooking the landing. The old-world atmosphere is nicely contrasted by the stylish, bright and modern extension to the rear of the house.
Extending to approximately 176m² the accommodation briefly consists of the hallway off which are two well-proportioned, interconnecting reception rooms. The hallway leads through to the back of the house, past the guest W.C., under stairs storage and inner courtyard to the open plan, extended kitchen, breakfast room and living room. On the first-floor return is the family bathroom and the fourth bedroom while the other three bedrooms including the master bedroom, which has an en-suite shower room, are on the first floor.
To the front of the house there is off street parking for two cars. The west facing and extremely private rear garden is laid out in a patio which then steps up to a lawn area surrounded by mature shrubbery. At the back of the garden there is a wooden garden shed. There is also an inner courtyard accessed off the kitchen.
Portobello is a classic city neighbourhood. Largely developed during the latter half of the 19th century, the attractive streets are lined with red-brick Victorian houses and dotted with independent restaurants and coffee shops that cater to Portobello’s diverse community. Living in Portobello, the entire city is on your doorstep. Longwood Avenue is just 1.4km from St Stephens Green and 800m from the LUAS Green Line. The Grand Canal at the end of the street provides a great amenity for walking and running. As well as long time residents and urban professionals, the area is home to many young families and neighbourhood primary schools include Griffith Barracks MDS and St. Catherine’s NS.
Travelling out the South Circular Road from South Richmond Street continue for approximately 550m and Longwood avenue is the 6th turn to the left, just before you get to Leonards Corner. Number 32 is 100m up the avenue on the right-hand side.
