Surrounded by an idyllic rural setting yet just 5km from Rathfarnham village and approximately 11 km to the south of the city centre, stands this magnificent single storey cottage with granite façade offering enormous potential to the discerning purchaser the opportunity to create the home of their dreams. Built in the early 1900’s this charming property stands on approximately 0.33 of an acre enjoying a picturesque setting nestling on the lower slopes of the Dublin mountains, positioned close to the junction with Mount Venus Road and Mutton Lane. Outstanding and picturesque views are across the adjoining countryside. Picturesque sea views across Dublin Bay looking north to Howth and beyond on a clear day from the front accommodation of the cottage.
Whilst full refurbishment of this home is required, enormous potential is on offer to extend extensively, subject to planning permission, given the magnitude of the gardens and grounds to the front, side and rear. The location benefits from many attractions of country living, yet is only a short drive from an array of facilities and amenities available at Rathfarnham, Knocklyon and Nutgrove. There are local and boutique shopping facilities close by together with numerous shopping centres at Dundrum and Nutgrove and a selection of restaurants and cafés, including Timbertrove Kelly’s Sawmills café and Hazel café.
