9 Oxford Road, Ranelagh
Just a short walk from both Ranelagh and Rathmines (and within walking distance of Grafton Street and Stephen's Green), this house at 9 Oxford Road oozes rustic character and charm. Presented to the market by Sherry Fitzgerald, it’s described as an "attractive, old-world period cottage", with romantic interiors resembling a country-home.

The spacious sitting room boasts original granite-stone walls, as well as a parquet timber floor and 12-pane picture window. There is also recessed ceiling lights and an open fireplace with an electric stove insert.
The current owners have styled the room with earthy colours, such as cream and brown, to complement these rustic features.
Elsewhere, the country-style kitchen-cum-dining room is the true heart of the home. It comes with green-painted wall and floor units; a timber worktop with part-tiled splashback; an open fireplace and tiled floors.
Other features of the kitchen include a Belling fridge-freezer; a ceramic hob and oven; a Smeg sink with mixer tap; integrated dishwasher and Vokera boiler.
Double-glazed French doors, which open out to the rear garden (more on this later), allow for lots of natural light to stream into the dining area. What's more, ceiling spotlights create a warm atmosphere at night.
There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms in this quaint Ranelagh home. The family bathroom features a tiled floor and part-tiled walls; a bath with mixer tap, as well as an electric shower. There's also a WC, hand basin, heated towel rail, picture window, and hatch-access to the attic.
Not only that, there is a separate shower room with a corner shower unit (including a Triton electric shower); plus a WC, wash hand basin, and tiled floor.
There are three double bedrooms and one single bedroom (which could double as a home office or study). The master bedroom features a rustic brick wall, as well as a picture window overlooking the rear garden and a skylight.
A second bedroom boasts lots of natural light, courtesy of a bay window with bay seating; as well as timber flooring and built-in wardrobes.
From the kitchen, double doors open out to a private walled garden, which Sherry Fitzgerald says is set with flagstones and planting beds. The current owners currently use the space as for al-fresco dining, which new owners may like to do too, particularly during the summer months.
There is also a valuable side passageway which leads to Rugby Road, ideal for bicycle and rubbish bin storage.
Estate agents at Sherry Fitzgerald say this property offers an opportunity to create a unique home of incredible charm and character; at €775,000 and a BER of D2, could it be the home for you?
