Apartment 49, Block E, Smithfield, Dublin 7€450,000
The legacy of Herbert Simms architect can be witnessed in all its glory at no.106 Saint Jarlath Road in Cabra, Dublin 7. The traditional looking facade of this two bedroom heritage home still retains the original character which was designed by Simms in his tenure (1932 – 1948) as Dublin Corporation’s first city architect.
On the inside a more contemporary vibe and presentation awaits as you walk through its deceptively spacious interior which extends to 975 sqft/91 sqm. A modern single storey extension has been added to the rear to provide a large open plan kitchen/dining/living space with feature sliding glazed doors that open out to the garden. A downstairs guest wc and utility room were also created as part of the extension and are positioned off the inner hall which links through to the original front facing living room. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The master room to front features generous dimensions and an original cast iron fireplace.
The trendy environs of Phibsborough village highlighted by Time Out magazine as being one of the “coolest neighbourhoods” is a mere 2km away from Saint Jarlath Road and within comfortable walking distance. Trendy cafes, well-regarded public houses, restaurants, eclectic shopping and a thriving arts and community scene are all on your doorstep. Cabra itself enjoys excellent transport links with multiple bus routes serving the area in addition to the Luas Cross City Line. A city commute is super convenient with a ten minute Luas ride to Parnell Street and a twenty minute ride to St. Stephens Green. The Phoenix Park and Botanic Gardens are also within easy reach of this well-established residential location.
