DescriptionSituated just steps from both the waters edge and the seaside village of Glasthule, yet enjoying a great sense of privacy in this discreetly tucked away enclave of unique mews properties, Islington Cottage is an instantly appealing home where the generously appointed accommodation is complimented by an abundance of natural light and is stylishly presented throughout.
Upon entering the property, you arrive directly into the living/dining room, which spans the entire width of the property, with a feature wood burning stove and Junkers wood floors, which are present throughout the ground floor. Glass double doors, which ensure the flow of natural light, open into the kitchen / breakfast room. The Shaker style kitchen and island units with marble counter tops, provides an excellent amount of storage and it is fully equipped for enthusiastic cooks, while the separate utility room ensure that machine noises are kept away from living areas. There is also a guest w.c off the utility room. The first floor has been cleverly laid out and comprises a large principle bedroom with shower en-suite and walk in wardrobe, two further double bedrooms, a large family bathroom with a bath and a separate shower and the accommodation is completed by a large storage room and hot press.
To the rear of the house there is a lovely low maintenance garden with porcelain tiled patio area flanked by clever storage units, which in turn leads to an artificial lawn area bordered by granite walls and an attractive water feature. The garden also has pedestrian side access.
The prime location of the property cannot be overstated. Islington Avenue offers convenient access to breathtaking walks on the seafront and the countless maritime leisure facilities. Its location allows great ease of access to a wide variety of amenities including popular shops, bars, restaurants and specialist delicatessens which line the streets of Glasthule, Sandycove and Dún Laoghaire. The People's Park is just a short stroll away with Fallon & Byrne restaurant and one of Dublin's most popular weekly farmers markets. The area is very well served by transport amenities including the DART which is a five-minute walk and the Aircoach which provides direct and swift access to Dublin Airport. This is a beautiful home in a superb location and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
Islington Cottage offers the option of off-street parking and/or residents' and visitors' parking permits.
