Period cottage close to the Phoenix Park

Dublin 20

This two-bedroom cottage comes onto the market requiring a good deal of modernisation and restoration, but at an asking price of €299,000 and coming in at 75sqm in size, 26 St Laurence Road is a good choice for anyone looking to put their own stamp on their home. The house has retained its old-world, exterior look, and inside comprises an entrance hall, living room, kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor.

There are two double bedrooms on the first floor. Outside, the garden has a south-westerly facing aspect, and also has potential to be landscaped and designed.

Key to 26 St Laurence Road's attraction is its location in Chapelizod, an increasingly popular location less than four miles outside Dublin city centre.

The area has a real village feel to it, with all the amenities you'd need such as shops, grocery stores, pubs and a pharmacy.

Chapelizod is well served by public transport too: there are lots of bus routes, and it's just five minutes to the Luas, Heuston Station and the M50, with the Liffey Valley shopping centre 10 minutes away.

Meanwhile, the area offers some great riverside walks and nearby access to the Phoenix Park, which is a real boon at this time of year as the weather improves.
