Islington Cottage at Islington Avenue in Sandycove, Co Dublin, is not what you'd expect from a home in this part of the capital.
Hidden away in a little courtyard scheme, the house has been reworked and expanded in recent years to give it a contemporary yet cosy style and extra dimensions which bring it to a very impressive 1,400 sq ft for a cottage terrace.
The downstairs is divided into two open plan spaces – the sittingroom/diningroom, a kitchen/breakfastroom.
Home workers will appreciate an upstairs office in addition to three bedrooms, the master en suite and a family bathroom. The garden is stepped and the house is within reach of two DART stations and the 40ft swimming area.
