IF YOU’RE LOOKING for a property that has plenty of character, and is within easy access of Dublin city centre and the coast, The Cottage could be the one for you.
Located a short walk from the heart of Blackrock village, The Cottage (44 Brookfield Place) boasts a beautiful boho-style interior.
The property has been completely refurbished, modernised and extended, and comes to the market ready for its new owners to enjoy right away.
The porch opens directly into the living room, where high ceilings and picture windows create a bright and airy feel. A wood-burning stove adds a cosy feel, while a skylight overhead allows in even more natural light. The staircase to the first floor is in here, with muted tones that blend in seamlessly with the rest of the decor, carrying the eye upward and helping the room to feel like an even larger space.
Two stone steps lead through to the kitchen and dining room, designed in a timeless neutral colour palette. The cupboards are white with solid wood work tops, while the splashback is grey. There’s underfloor heating in here, which is sure to be appreciated on cold winter mornings. A large utility room off the kitchen provides extra storage space.
A floor-to-ceiling window in the dining area overlooks the back garden, which has a gravel and patio area. A stream runs beyond the garden, with Rockfield Park on the other side.
One of the two double bedrooms, complete with built-in wardrobes and a fully tiled en suite bathroom with a double shower, is on the ground floor.
The master bedroom is upstairs with its own en suite bathroom. A glass door and picture window overlook the park and stream, with high ceilings and a skylight making this a wonderfully well-lit space.
The Cottage is conveniently located just a 15-minute walk from Blackrock DART station, and there is a great selection of schools, sports clubs and shops in the area too. For commuters, the train journey to the city centre should take about 20 minutes.
Walkers and swimmers will love the easy access to the coast – Seapoint Beach is a 25-minute walk, or five-minute drive, away.
The Cottage comes to the market in turn-key condition, meaning more time to enjoy all that Blackrock and the south Dublin coast have to offer.
