We love a property with a history and this home has a genuine ‘Rare Oul Times’ feel to its story. In the mid 1930’s one of the major employers in the area was Player Wills, the cigarette company on the South Circular Road. When the factory was set up the company brought workers over from its Bristol operation to help get it off the ground and because the housing situation in Dublin was dire, they built homes to house these workers. When, after the 2nd World War, these workers went home, the company offered the homes to their Irish employees. The current owner’s father was one such and it has stayed in the family since then, moving into private ownership in the 1950’s.
The small porch leads to the hallway with two reception rooms and a kitchen off. There is some decent storage in the hall, as well as an understairs cupboard reached from the kitchen. There would definitely be some opportunity to reimagine the layout of the ground floor as the available space is generous. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The garden is private and well maintained and could be that very desirable ‘room outside’ without too much effort. Parking is on-street, although a number of the neighbouring homes have installed driveways. The wider area has lots of shopping, schools, parks and clubs. Both Crumlin and Sundrive shopping centres can be reached on foot in less than 20 minutes. Town is a short bus ride away, and there are lots of routes running nearby.
THE BOTTOM LINE
Although in need of a decor upgrade and some modernisation, this absolute gem impresses in so many ways that we are expecting lots of interest.
