SITUATED IN THE heart of Dublin 8, 6 Longwood Avenue is a city home with a charming, country-inspired interior.

A terraced property, No 6 is just a stone’s throw from the Grand Canal, while Dublin’s south city centre is just a short stroll away, meaning residents will have some of the capital’s best offerings on their doorstep.

A pale pink front door opens to the entrance hall, with the drawing room to the right. This space strikes the balance of being both cosy and bright, with a large marble fireplace, stained timber floors and a picture window overlooking the front garden.

Straight down the hallway is the dining room and study, which are separated by a wall with a fireplace on each side. The dining room features an impressive red-brick fireplace and antique multi-fuel stove, with room for a large table to suit family dinners or larger parties. 

To the right is the study, with a cast-iron fireplace and plenty of space for bookshelves, making it an ideal home office space. French doors lead from here to the rear garden, however, meaning you might get distracted on sunny summer days.

Moving from the dining room through to the extended kitchen, this area is flooded with natural light thanks to its south facing-aspect, and Velux and picture windows. The kitchen boasts a vaulted ceiling and maple Shaker-style units, with plenty of space for a dining table here, too.

As for somewhere to relax after a bite to eat, the sun room is accessed from the kitchen and also enjoys a south-facing aspect. French doors open to the south-facing garden and patio, which can be a rarity to find in the city centre. 

Out here, there’s a decking area, which is ideal for dining al fresco, and an impressive stretch of garden. A mature apple tree, located to the rear, and shrubbery on either side provide a sense of privacy, and could easily lead you to forget that you’re still in the city.

On the first floor, there are three bedrooms and one bathroom. The master bedroom is located to the front of the property and features built-in wardrobes, a cast iron fireplace and a picture window, while the remaining two bedrooms overlook the rear garden.

The family bathroom features sleek white tiles to the walls and wood effect tiles to the floors, while there’s a guest bathroom and shower located on the ground floor.

No 6 comes to the market with a permit for on-street parking, although you might not need a car with numerous public transport options on your door step  – not to mention being within walking distance of Rathmines, Camden St and Ranelagh. 

6 Longwood Avenue, Portobello, Dublin 8, South Dublin City is on the market for €1,100,000 through Sherry FitzGerald via Daft.ie.
