Bringing the comfort and quaintness of a countryside retreat to the capital, these three Dublin cottages are nothing short of stunning.
Ranging in price from €345,000 to €625,000, here are three two-bedroom cottages currently on the market throughout county Dublin.
Woodburn Cottage, Ballinclea Road, Killiney, Dublin, €625,000
Currently on the market through Lynam Auctioneers, this well-presented two-bedroom cottage was originally built in the early 1800s in a secluded setting close to Killiney Golf Club. This property will appeal to many, boasting some stunning features including the Star of Jasmine covered lattice framed entrance, and the monochrome bathroom with underfloor heating.
Designed with excellent taste and practicality making use of every available space, Woodburn Cottage comprises a hallway leading to a deceptively spacious kitchen/dining room, a living room and separate sitting room. The monochrome bathroom with underfloor heating completes this floor. On the first floor, there are two spacious bedrooms with the master ensuite.
The eaves are well-utilised with easy access to storage for everything from suitcases to Christmas decorations. Outside there is a composite decking with a hot tub, which the present owners may leave should you wish. There are a selection of oriental trees and shrubs finishing off the relaxed ambiance of this beautiful home.
28c Stable Lane Mews, Monkstown, County Dublin, €595,000
This charming two-bedroom property, built circa 1850, maintains many of its original features while also benefiting from modernisation by the current owners. Recessed back from the bustle of the Monkstown Road, this cottage gives a real feel of country living in the heart of one of the best neighbourhoods in south county Dublin. This property would ideally suit a down-sizer or a couple looking to set down roots in this wonderful location.
Located at the rear of this small private community, the house is nestled away from the other properties and is ensured privacy with the original granite wall opposite the front door. There is parking at the front for two cars and this area also provides room from a good-sized shed, ideal for bike storage, or wood for the fire.
Inside, the accommodation comprises a cloakroom in the hallway with plenty of storage and a small utility under the stairs, a large open-plan living/dining room with dark wooden floors, low cottage windows and an open fire. Adjacent to this is the bright new modern kitchen with double-glazed windows and doors. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, the master has three aspects with a view of the sea, and has the original cast iron fireplace. The bathroom has been finished with beautiful Victorian sanitary ware and also has a hot press with good storage. This Dublin cottage is on the market through Mason Estates Dundrum.
3 Gilford Terrace, Sandymount, Dublin 4, €345,000
On the market through Bennetts Sandymount, this charming mid terrace cottage is ideally situated in a quiet cul de sac off Gilford Road. A bright and spacious home with accommodation briefly consisting of an entrance hall, living room, large kitchen, and shower room, this Dublin cottage features gas fired central heating, double glazing, and sunny south facing rear yard.
The carpeted living room boasts a beautiful marble fireplace, and the fully kitted kitchen is tiled and plumbed for washing machine and dishwasher. Ideally located adjacent to the center of Sandymount Village, with its shops, schools, restaurants, and transport links, this cottage has been extended, but in need of modernisation.
