Boasting a coveted location on the leafy suburbs of upper Drumcondra, North of the City Centre is this Pre’63 investment property and a wonderful home opportunity. Built in 1920’s the Victorian inspired property has all the external features of neighbouring Alexandra Strain built homes with a characterful red brick facade. The front of the property is bordered by the original wrought iron railings and pedestrian gate which boasts the original ornate floor tiles leading to an arched porch area.

The property has been in the ownership of the same family for the past 100 years and prior to reconfiguration works, it was once a family home. Behind the traditional exterior, the current layout is four very neat one bedroom apartments and the latest refurbishment works were carried out in 2007 adding a double extension to the rear, creating a duplex apartment.

All certificates of compliance relating to building works are available and all rents have been registered with the RTB.
