Grand Canal views for €600k in this totally revamped period property

It’s not just the exterior that’s had a modern facelift.

IF YOU’VE WALKED or driven along the Grand Canal in the past year or so, you’ll probably have spotted 75 Grove Road.

The property’s dark exterior stands out on the southside’s canal banks, and that paint job is just one element of a full-on renovation from the inside out.

Dating back to the 1920s, the home is spread over 818 sq ft. Inside are three bedrooms and a large open plan ground floor that soaks up every bit of natural light.

It’s the well-considered revamp that makes this canalside home a great find – though you can’t fault the location either. If you’re house-hunting on a central Dublin budget, you’ll probably find the €600k price tag fairly standard too.

Although essentially open plan, the ground floor is wonderfully zoned through the use of a partition that tucks the kitchen away from the main living area without stealing the natural light that floods in. A tri-fold door leads to the rear terrace and stretches along one entire side of the space.

Two of this home’s bedrooms overlook the canal, while a third bedroom peers down to the back garden. Floorboards and fireplaces, original to the house, rev up the cosy factor.

A spacious ground floor is covered in reclaimed maple wood, giving the whole space is warm, welcoming feel. The home’s canalside location means there’s water to the front and outdoor access to a south-facing terrace at the back.

Rathmines and Harold’s Cross were once considered student hangouts, but they’re growing massively in popularity among family buyers too.

The city centre is a skip away, yet almost everything you’d need in the form of entertainment and shopping can be found in Rathmines – a cinema, swimming pool, gyms, shops, bars and more.

For outdoor pursuits, a short stroll will bring you to Harold’s Cross Park, and you’ll find the Charlemont LUAS stop nearby.
