TUCKED AWAY OFF Portobello Road in Dublin 8, 23 Martin Street is among a row of redbrick terraced houses.

Inside, the house measures a neat 807 sq ft, but immense thought and care has been given to the interior and layout, meaning this is a home that packs a lot in.

The two-bed property has been extended to the rear to include a lounge and utility room, with a kitchen/diner and a separate living room also on the ground floor.

The living room is a warm and welcoming space, with a feature fireplace making it the ideal spot to curl up in on cold winter days.

Moving through to the kitchen/dining room, a wrought iron spiral staircase immediately catches the eye. This space benefits from a west-facing aspect, while a skylight above the stairwell brightens the room even more.

The kitchen features a mix of closed and open shelving, with room for a dining table in here or in the lounge. A wood-burning stove in the kitchen adds a cosy feel.

Sliding glass doors in the lounge open to a quaint rear garden with a solid wood timber deck. The utility room is to the side of the lounge, while there’s also a storage room in the garden.

On the first floor, the master bedroom spans the width of the front of the house. White floorboards, walls and the ceiling make this space hugely bright and inviting, and provide the option to add extra storage or maintain its minimalist design.

A single bedroom is to the rear of the house, with the current layout allowing it to double as a home office space. The main bathroom features a bath/shower, with this room being the one that would benefit most from some modernisation.
