DNG is very pleased to introduce 68 Upper Drumcondra Road to the open market - a very charming and attractive late Victorian period family home with a lovely private rear garden with rear access. Beyond the distinctive red brick façade lies a warm and inviting home, which has been lovingly maintained and upgraded by the current owners. High ceilings, generous room proportions, elegant reception rooms and well-proportioned bedrooms are further complemented by the private east facing garden. The home has been decorated with flair and taste resulting in an exceptional interior rich in period detail, creating a warm inviting and welcoming family home.
Reception rooms of elegant proportions are flooded with natural light perfect for entertaining yet cosy for everyday living. A wonderful kitchen/dining room, connects through to an adjoining and generous utility room. There are four well-proportioned bedrooms upstairs, a large attic room and four bathrooms.

It enjoys an east facing orientation and includes two block-built sheds and a self-contained studio which incorporates home office, gym and shower room. There is also on street parking available.
