Full Description

20 Crawford Avenue is a wonderful Strain built residence in the heart of Glasnevin close to Drumcondra village. The property has beautiful railed garden to the front and an impressive and handsome imposing façade with a full brick finish with granite lintels and sills and an impressive bay window at both ground and first floor level. To the rear is a generous garden that extends to 15 metres 50ft approx. from the rear elevation. A rear laneway provides invaluable off street parking in a generous domestic garage which measures 20sqm (223sqft) and there is also additional pedestrian access from the rear laneway. The rear garden is laid in lawn and has domestic stores to the side. Internally many of the original features and period proportions indicative of the era which this property was built remain intact. Though the property is in need of modernisation, this most impressive home is certainly worthy of its return to the glory of yesteryear.

On entering the property there is a storm porch leading to the recessed hall door and entrance hallway. The hallway retains the original coving and centre roses and the high ceilings, indicative of the proportions one will enjoy throughout this property. The two main reception rooms are accessed to the right of the hallway and interconnect via sliding doors. A beautiful bay window to the front provides invaluable source of light and also a second large window in the second reception room ensuring that these are beautifully bright, light filled rooms. Both rooms have retained the original fireplaces with tiled insets and timber surrounds. The ground floor return leads to a third reception area and in turn a galley kitchen and the rear garden. This third reception room also has an impressive original fire place. At first floor return level there is a bedroom, bathroom and separate WC. While on first floor level, there are three bedrooms this was originally a three bed house but now subdivided to provide four bedrooms amply. The structural integrity of the property has been maintained over the years but this fine house will now benefit from decorative upgrading throughout to provide a beautiful family home in one of the most sought after locations in North Dublin.

Crawford Avenue is situated just minutes’ walk from the National Botanic Gardens, the Bons Secours Hospital and a host of local amenities including shops, schools and churches. There are also numerous sporting and recreational amenities within the immediate area.
