DescriptionAn exceptionally attractive detached cottage residence that is set in an oasis of tranquillity hidden away behind high walls and approached via secure vehicular gates, Sherrington Cottage is positioned in the heart of Shankill Village within the short stroll of the superb local conveniences whilst having public transport on the doorstep via the bus and DART.
Constructed originally in 1781 this quaint cottage retains the period nuances and wonderful features of the era. During the 70's and again in the 80's the cottage was extended double storey to the rear. The entire property now extends to approximately 170 sqm (1,830 sqft). Briefly the accommodation comprises of an atrium entrance hall with a bathroom and utility to the rear. Next in the original cottage is a breakfast room, a well fitted kitchen including a Stanley gas cooker/boiler and finally there is a stunning sitting room.
A particular feature in the cottage is the high vaulted ceilings giving a greater sense of proportion. The more modern part of the property has a large dining room that opens into a TV room/study and the master bedroom with excellent storage completes the accommodation at this level. Upstairs two double bedrooms share an en suite shower room and off the landing is very good eaves storage. The property has been very well maintained throughout, however, would now require some upgrading and modernisation to bring it up to present modern day standards.
The garden is a particularly nice feature of the property. It is set out in a suntrap patio bordered by wonderfully planted raised flower beds, shrubbery and trees. It has a
sought after sunny south westerly orientation. There is a covered fuel store and gravelled off street parking for a number of cars.
The location of Sherrington Cottage is that of unparalleled convenience being within seconds' walk of the superb conveniences in Shankill Village with its excellent range of facilities and amenities including shops such as Tesco Express, restaurants, Brady's pub as well as the newly opened Lidl supermarket and Costa Café. The area is very well served by public transport links including the local DART at Shankill and numerous bus routes as well as the LUAS at Cherrywood. The N11 and M50 interchange are both within easy reach of the property and provide ease of access to and from the city centre and nationwide. There is also a wide selection of recreational amenities close by including golf, rugby and football clubs as well as pleasant walks along Shankill Beach, over Killiney and Dalkey hills and Shanganagh Park with its fields and playground.
