Property Description

*Suitable for cash purchaser*
Danny Byrne of Castle Estate Agents powered by Keller Williams is pleased to present to the market this unique red brick period home – ‘The Skinny House’ – has become famous over the years as one of the narrowest houses in Dublin.
Located just off Heytesbury Street and a short walk to Camden Street, St Stephen’s Green,and the Grafton Street area, the Skinny House is a unique part of Dublin’s built heritage. The house was reputedly created by accident after the builder of the terrace started construction at either end and the houses failed to meet in the middle. 19A was originally used as a laneway between the houses but was subsequently roofed and turned into a house. The pillars from the original laneway can be seen outside the house. The Skinny House has very high vaulted ceilings, which are cleverly used as storage space by the current owners, and at 34 sq.m, the Skinny House is comparable in size to typical one bedroom apartments in the area.
The house is flooded with natural light thanks to the installation of modern velux windows, which are fitted with remote control blinds. The walls are decorated with graphic murals painted by the artist Paul Monaghan. The home has a warm welcoming feeling and briefly comprises of an entrance porch that leads into the main living room with a vaulted ceiling and velux windows, a bedroom area with a useful mezzanine level, a spacious family bathroom, and a bright well-appointed kitchen completing the accommodation. There is a generous walled garden to the rear offering a wonderful space for ‘al fresco’ dining and entertaining. A small, plumbed shed at the end of garden was previously used to house a washing machine and dryer, and also contains an outside toilet, but is not used by the current owners. This quiet and friendly street has plenty of on- street parking (permit), while there is a vast array of local amenities right on your doorstep including shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. 19A is a short walk from Trinity College, RCSI,and DIT.
