Four impressive cottages on the market in Dublin for less that €600k
Four cottages for sale in Dublin which come with charm and individuality.
4 Richmond Place, Rathmines, D6
€650k Sherry FitzGerald Rathmines, (01) 496 6066
The interior of 4 Richmond Place may not be to everyone's taste, as there's a profusion of wood on the floors, walls and ceilings. The exterior, though, is sure to please. It has a picture-postcard front garden, packed with rose bushes, and the back garden has herb and fruit beds and a lawn. The house was remodelled about 10 years ago under an architect's design, and is mainly open-plan now with an internal courtyard. It's 1,152 sq ft with two bedrooms on the ground floor (one en-suite), as well as a study or third bedroom in the attic. Otherwise the ground floor consists of an open-plan living room, dining room and kitchen with huge glass doors to the garden.
7 Beaumont Road, Beaumont, D9
€350k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
Number 7 Beaumont Road is part of a terrace of eight bungalows that used to be known as Puckstown Cottages back when they were first built in the late 19th century. They've all been extended since then, to a greater or lesser extent, but there may be scope to do more with Number 7, as it has gardens front and back (though no off-street parking at present). As it stands, it's 753 sq ft with three bedrooms as well as an eat-in kitchen, a living room and a bathroom. The back garden has a patio and a lawn, and the front garden is also lawned, which could make way for a driveway.
12 Dermot O’Hurley Ave, Irishtown, D4
€435k Bennetts, (01) 260 2520
Dermot O'Hurley Avenue is named after the 16th century Archbishop of Cashel who was tortured and hanged in 1584 for refusing to renounce Catholicism. It runs in a roughly east-west direction between the River Dodder and Irishtown Road, and Number 12 is at the end of a terrace. It's 721 sq ft, all on one floor, and has been well maintained and refurbished. There are two bedrooms, both with oak floors and cast-iron fireplaces, as well as a skylit living room at the front and an eat-in kitchen at the back, with sliding doors to a decked yard facing south. Lansdowne Road and Grand Canal Dock train stations are both about a kilometre away.
89 The Village, Bettyglen, Raheny, D5
€420k Hamill Estate Agents, (01) 833 2534
The Village opens off Watermill Road in Raheny, and is less than five minutes' walk from the causeway to Bull Island. Number 89 is a south-west-facing mid-terrace house, in very good decorative order, with a small but stylish back garden where there's a sandstone patio surrounded by copiously planted flowerbeds and creeper-clad walls. The house itself is 861 sq ft with two bedrooms on the first floor, along with a bathroom. The ground floor has a relatively big (26ft by 14ft) living and dining room running from the front of the house to the back, with a gas-fitted fireplace and double doors to the garden. Off this is a galley-style fitted kitchen.
