15 Jamesmount has just hit the market with Jeremy Murphy of Jeremy Murphy and Associates and carries a €890,000 price tag.
That’s a low enough pitch considering the selling points — house size, site size and location.
There’s a very intelligent use of space by architect Richard Rainey, with a good layout in the living rooms. This is a house of 2,500 square feet and yet it feels like more.
The property is in superb condition and it’s tastefully finished with some top-quality fittings, like the chestnut kitchen and solid maple floors on the ground level.
The main living room has a sun room extension, with apex-high ceilings and the centrepiece is a modern, but minimal slate and limestone fireplace.
A door connects through to the kitchen area, which combines three living areas. Again, there is a sunroom extension with a drop in floor level. The kitchen is wrapped around one side of the room and comes with black granite worktop and a huge island. It also has an attached utility. There are French doors from the sunroom end of the kitchen/dining/ living areas. The floor in this area is tiled and there is underfloor heating on the ground floor.
There’s a zoned radiator system upstairs and the extra floor at roof level makes for large bedrooms. Floor 1 has a generous master suite, with power shower and walk-in wardrobes and there are two other double rooms at this level, with a main bathroom.
The half landing is big enough to function as a study, or library and bedrooms four and five share a very large bathroom with free-standing Victorian bath. Two of the double bedrooms come with good-quality built-ins and a walk-in hot press is also included on the top floor.
Garden-wise, the hard work is done with a patio at the back and a cobble-lock driveway in front.
