Explore this creatively designed corner home in Portobello using virtual reality

The strikingly modern split-level property is a fifteen-minute stroll from Stephen’s Green.

If you have Google Cardboard or another VR headset, you can enjoy a full 3D experience by tapping the ‘goggles’ icon.

SITTING PRETTY AT the intersection of Arnott Street and Heytesbury Street, 46 Arnott Street is an end-of-terrace beauty with a striking wooden facade.

The two-bedroom home is a corner building spread over three stories. Thanks to its mainly west-facing windows, there’s plenty of late afternoon sunlight filtering in.

On the ground floor, a small flight of stairs brings you down to the cosy living area, deceptively bright with pale wooden floors and an exposed brick wall.

Extended window ledges make for great storage space, just one of many examples of creative use of space in this unusual property.

The two bedrooms are on separate floors, ensuring privacy for the new occupants.

In contrast to the friendly living area, the kitchen is more minimal: a slick and bright space with recessed lighting and a sizeable stove oven. Despite the scaled-back design, there’s plenty of kitchen storage thanks to fitted presses.

With a B-rating for energy, 46 Arnott Street is efficient and warm. Solar panels are built into the roof, and gas-fired central heating keeps the different levels equally cosy.

Commuters can avail of a separate lockup for bikes or storage outside, as well as two roadside parking permits.

Perhaps the most exciting feature of this property sits on its top floor, just off the second bedroom. A comfortable wooden deck with views over Dublin 8 is a true haven away from the hustle and bustle of city life, perfect for relaxing, entertaining and catching all that early evening sunlight.

Portobello is one of Dublin’s most exciting neighbourhoods, with hipster restaurants, cafés and pubs galore, as well as a lovely stretch of canal to stroll along in the evenings.

The city centre is moments away on foot, though the area is also well-served by several Dublin Bus routes.
