LOCATED RIGHT BY the River Liffey on Pigeon House Road, Seaflower Cottage can only be described as a Dublin city gem.

The two-bed property offers views right across to Dublin Port, with Ringsend Park sitting just behind it.

Redesigned and rebuilt in 2019, the cottage comes to the market ready for its new owners to settle in immediately. 

The accommodation, which measures 657 sq ft over two floors, is packed with impressive features including solid oak herringbone flooring throughout the open-plan living, kitchen and dining area.

This space is striking in its design, with sliding glass doors to the patio ensuring it is filled with ample natural light. The kitchen is fitted with sleek white units, while the extendable kitchen island seats two to five people and comes complete with a built-in wine cooler. Dinner party, anyone? 

There’s a utility room off the kitchen, with further built-in cabinets, a washing machine and a dryer here.

For sunny summer evenings, the south-facing patio with built-in seating is the perfect spot to unwind or entertain.  

The living room is an equally bright and airy space, with custom-made cabinets with pull-out piano storage, a satin black granite fireplace and a drinks cabinet with lighting.

Moving to the first floor, there’s eye-catching custom shelving along the stairway. Again, built-in wardrobes and cabinets in the main bedroom make the most of every bit of space. The second bedroom, which features a built-in fold-out bed, is currently in use as a home office.
