DescriptionSurrounded by an idyllic rural setting yet just 5km from Rathfarnham village and approximately 11 km to the south of the city centre, stands this magnificent single storey cottage with granite façade offering enormous potential to the discerning purchaser the opportunity to create the home of their dreams.
Built in the early 1900's this charming property stands on approximately 0.33 of an acre enjoying a picturesque setting nestling on the lower slopes of the Dublin mountains, positioned close to the junction with Mount Venus Road and Mutton Lane. Outstanding and picturesque views across the adjoining countryside. Sea views across Dublin Bay looking north to Howth and beyond on a clear day from the front accommodation and front door of the cottage. Whilst full refurbishment of this home is required, enormous potential is on offer to extend extensively, subject to planning permission, given the magnitude of the gardens and grounds to the front, side and rear.
