A proper garden is a luxury these days.
While many city homes come with small yards (little more than an area to store the bins, if we’re honest), a good-sized green space is one of the first things you’ll likely forego when you start househunting these days.
Over on Douglas Street, however, there’s a four-bedroom home that offers all the convenience of city living with a bucolic little treat out the back.
Fresh to the market at €355,000, 24 Douglas Street is a fully refurbished 1850s terraced property split into two self-contained two-bedroom apartments.
“Accommodation is generously proportioned and is spread over two floors.” explains estate agent John Moynihan of Sherry Fitzgerald.
“The ground floor apartment comprises of an open plan kitchen/dining/living area, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, utility, and a shower room. The first-floor apartment boasts a large living space, kitchen, two bedrooms, and a bathroom.”
The setup could be ideal if you fancy living in one apartment and renting the other or transforming the two apartments into one spacious family home, smack bang in the middle of town.
Outside, you can grow veggies, barbecue, and kick back in the evening sun with wild abandon in your own private city oasis:
“The rear of the property benefits from a fully enclosed walled-in courtyard that offers maximum privacy. The back garden has a stepped area from the courtyard which is private to the ground floor apartment and continues onto a low maintenance lawn and patio area that is south facing,” adds John.
“The first-floor apartment enjoys a large south-facing balcony area accessed from the living room which is ideal for sitting out on sunny days!”
