Portobello is a vibrant and unique city centre neighborhood; it is distinctly popular due to it's proximity to the city centre coupled with an excellent array of local amenities, yet it still manages to retain a real sense of community. Martin Street is situated between the South Circular Road and Portobello Road close to the banks of the Grand Canal. At one end of Martin Street is the leafy canal, a picturesque amenity, bustling with activity. At the other end is a host of cafes including First Draft Coffee & Wine, the newly opened No.31 restaurant, Wayward Saloon hair salon and the Bretzel bakery. Locks, Alma, Bastible, Sister Sadie and Grove Road Cafe are a further 2 minutes walk away as is the hustle and bustle of Camden Street with all it has to offer.
No 36 Martin Street which extends to 73sqm / 785sqft is simply stunning throughout with a tasteful blend of the old and the new. From the moment you enter the property through the hall door the standard of finish and attention to detail is immediately apparent. The living room features original cast iron fireplace, beautifully restored sash windows and old world radiators, complimented by the painted wooden flooring and contemporary colour scheme.
The kitchen / dining room is pristine with high gloss shaker style kitchen units fitted around a stainless steel gas cooker and extractor hood with a white subway tiled splash back and a feature wall. The white kitchen is offset by black marble worktops and luxurious grey marble floor tiles. The kitchen opens directly to the rear courtyard.
To the rear is a magnificent, double height bathroom featuring two sash windows, roof lights, a standalone shower unit with curved glass door fully tiled surround and separate ceramic bath, wc and whb. The bathroom is luxurious and exceptionally spacious and would not be out of place in a five star hotel suite.
Upstairs there are two well proportioned double bedrooms again featuring high ceilings and back to back cast iron fireplaces. The master bedroom spans the front of the house and has a view of the bustling canal banks. The house is wired for a surround sound system throughout, another modern feature in this period classic.
To the rear is a secluded low maintenance courtyard, laid out in AstroTurf surrounded by Indian sandstone tiles; at the bottom of the courtyard is a a fully plumbed shed, which houses the boiler and provides some additional storage space.
Easily accessible and close to a host of transport facilities including the LUAS-the Charlemont and Harcourt Street stops are equidistant from Martin Street and just 1.3km to St Stephens Green (about 15 minutes on foot). The Grand Canal features a cycle lane and footpath from Portobello bridge. There is a Dublin bike station at the top of Martin Street and another on the square at Portobello bridge.
This two bedroom period property is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet within walking distance of Dublin's central business district and the IT Hub on Barrow St home to Google, Facebook and Twitters European Headquarters and Amazon's new offices on Charlemont Street by 2022.
