14 Highfield Grove, Rathgar, Dublin 6
Two-bedroom cottage in quiet cul-de-sac
This well-maintained cottage is located in a triangle of houses off Highfield Road. Refurbished to maximise its 66sqm, the house consists of an entrance porch with window, large living-room with pine ceiling, multi-fuel stove and double doors leading into the kitchen/dining room. It has one en suite double bedroom with fitted wardrobe, a smaller single bedroom with fitted presses and access to the attic, a small study/home office, and a family bathroom.
There are stripped pine floors throughout, two Velux windows in the kitchen, and one in the study.
The house is cosy with GFCH, a Baxi back boiler, double-glazed teak windows and five-point locked solid teak front and back doors.
At the rear of the house is a small paved, private rear courtyard with access to a pedestrian laneway. In front is a communal grass area.
What makes the cottage particularly attractive is its location. Just a few minutes walk from Rathgar village, it is also close to Rathmines and Terenure, and the Luas green line into St Stephen's Green. Palmerston Park is just down the road.
Pros: There is a nice community spirit in the area with communal picnics on the grass area.
Cons: There's an awful lot of stripped pine and pine effect features.
