44 Gulistan Cottages
An utterly charming artisan dwelling, which was designed by the noted architect and watercolour artist Frederick G Hicks in 1895 for the Rathmines and Rathgar Urban District Council.
The current owner refurbished the cottage in 2009 with Ranelagh based CPA architects, resulting in a stunning home.
Once through the entrance hallway you enter a light -filled living room with original high ceilings, cleverly designed skylights and ornate cast iron fireplace. This room is L-shaped and incorporates the kitchen yet gives a feeling they are separate rooms. The kitchen has generous storage units and work counters. A smart, concealed utility press is hidden off the kitchen.
The cottage offers two double bedrooms with high ceilings and fitted slide robes providing ample storage. Completing the accommodation is a fine size bathroom which is well appointed. A large attic offers opportunity for dormer extension subject to planning permission.
The courtyard to rear, landscaped in 2017 by abgc architects & design, boasts feature planting, a small outdoor storage closet and barbecue area. Black granite paving is edged in white cobble with a corten steel raised bed and mahogany bench. The lower bed, also framed by corten steel, is planted with a variety of sedum, the upper bed is planted with bruxus semp, bay laurel trees and festuca glauca.
Situated in a quiet cul de sac, just off Mountpleasant Avenue, a stones throw from the hub of Rathmines & Ranelagh and all the amenities they have to offer. Within walking distance to the City Centre the location is second to none.
