No. 23 is a mid-terrace red brick Victorian house spread over four floors extending to approximately 302 sq. m / 3,250 sq. ft. Well set back from York Road behind wrought iron railings the attractive front door is approached via a flag stone pathway and granite steps. The welcoming entrance hall opens to the left into a superbly proportioned drawing room with double doors through to the interconnecting dining room to the rear. Both rooms feature marble fireplaces, intricate cornicing with ceiling roses and working shutters while sunlight floods through the original sash windows. The hall level return comprises a large utility room (giving access to the garden) opening in to a home office wired for CAT 6 cabling.
There is substantial living accommodation at garden level to include a stunning open plan living room, kitchen and dining area. The bespoke kitchen features painted wooden units, a centre island with raised walnut adorned breakfast bar, granite worktops and high quality built in appliances. The dining area opens on to the back patio and can accommodate a large table. The comfortable living space also provides external access to the front of the house. Further garden level accommodation includes an under stairs WC, a back hall also giving garden access and a small playroom.
There are five double bedrooms spread over the first and second floors. The master bedroom is on the first floor to the rear of the house and features an abundance of built in wardrobes and a large sash window with far reaching rooftop views. To the front of the house is another large double bedroom and a luxurious master bathroom with a free standing roll top bath and separate shower. The second floor benefits from three double bedrooms (all with built in cupboards), a family bathroom, hot press and access to the fully insulated attic via a pull down ladder. There are also superb views across Dublin Bay.
23 Cambridge Terrace has been completely restored and renovated in recent years and can be found in turnkey condition. There are two gas fired combi-boilers and under floor heating throughout the lower ground floor.
The front garden is low maintenance mostly gravelled with some strategic planting of shrubs and potted plants. Off the kitchen is a West facing Indian Sandstone paved patio area with steps leading up to an expanse of lawn bordered by mature shrubbery and an old Bay tree. A gravelled path provides access to the rear of the garden and another patio area featuring a traditional brick built pizza oven – ideal of al fresco dining. There is an extremely useful three-car garage behind the garden with an electric roller door on to Knapton Lane.
