DescriptionDNG are delighted to present this stunning, imaginatively designed, contemporary cottage to the market. This characterful cottage is a real gem tucked away at the end of a quiet street with a sun trap garden, in this highly desirable area beside the city.
The current architect owners re-built the property in 2006, opening up the space with clever design including 4.2m (14 ft) high ceilings in the kitchen and dining area, 2.7m high Iroko sliding doors linking the indoors to the private, sunny garden, including a bespoke oak staircase leading to an exceptionally bright first floor - creating an exceptionally well-designed home offering a great balance of living and bedroom space. Careful attention was paid to the materials and craftsmanship throughout the house and its current owners have created the perfect combination of style and functionality in this wonderful family home.
From the moment you step over the threshold, features such as the half door, open fireplace, bespoke built in study spaces and flow from the south-facing living to kitchen/ dining space catch the eye. Roof lights to the front flood the spaces with natural light. This cottage is twice the width of others in the area and has the unusual feature of a 15 m long (49 ft) side garden with gated side access. The downstairs accommodation also boasts 2 bedrooms, one of which opens onto the garden. A bathroom, utility and storage space complete the picture on this level. Adding warmth and texture, oak flooring is used throughout the entire house.
Upstairs is equally as impressive. The spacious master bedroom enjoys the benefit of a suntrap balcony, floor to ceiling iroko windows, ample storage and a large skylight. There is also a spacious home office/bedroom on this level, a designer shower room and the landing has been fitted out as a study space, with large roof lights.
No 94 is superbly positioned at the end of a quite cul de sac enjoying a great sense of tranquillity and privacy. There is ample on street parking. Harolds Cross Cottages is a quiet enclave located close to Dublin's city-centre; the property enjoys an ideal setting in close proximity to St Stephen's Green yet remains a remarkably quiet area. Residents of the locality enjoy the pleasure of leisurely strolls by the canal with a number of renowned restaurants and cafes within a 5 minute walk. The property is also a mere 20 minute stroll to the city centre.
All in all, No. 94 presents a rare opportunity to acquire such a sizeable, well-designed property, quiet setting and secluded garden on the verge of the city.
