It’s one of the city’s coolest neighbourhoods.
And if you’re looking for a hipster home in St Luke’s, No. 2 Magnolia Terrace might be your ticket into the community, with a not-unreasonable asking price of €295,000.
With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the property on Mahony’s Avenue looks neat and unassuming from the street.
Inside, however, its owners have fully refurbished every square inch, adding bold tiles, tropical wallpaper and solid timber flooring to a series of bright white rooms and turning this house into a cosy and trendy family home.
“Making your way into No. 2 you are greeted at the entrance hallway with lovely Victorian style tiled threshold and solid timber floor, with high corniced ceilings and a beautiful original staircase leading to the first floor.” says the agent, Lawrence Sweeney of Savills.
“Just inside the hall is the sitting room which is a spacious warm sunny room, well-proportioned and very stylish.”
Beyond this, the dining room overlooks the private patio at the back of the property – a real sun trap for summer dinners al fresco and fun spot for enjoying a drink with friends.
In the kitchen, you’ll find fully fitted ground and eye level units including a super selection of appliances, with a spacious guest loo, storage room and hot-press also on this level.
Upstairs a double room overlooks the back of the property and two additional good-sized bedrooms face the front of the house. There’s a lovely master bathroom on this level too.
“To the front of No.2 is an ornate railed fence and gate and a selection of shrubs adding a dash of colour,” adds Mr Sweeney.
“This location is ideal with the property being only 150 metres from the very popular St. Luke’s Cross and less than 1km walk or bus trip to the city centre.
“There is a wide range of local services and amenities close by to include a local creche, schools, sports clubs, restaurants, hotels, shops, and a variety of businesses all within easy walking distance of the property. In addition, there are two bus stops within 250m of the house.”
