Fairytale living for €2.25m in Dublin 6 with the city on your doorstep

Tawnabeg sits right between Rathmines and Rathgar.

LIVING IN THE countryside while being just minutes away from the city is a dream-turned-reality thanks to Tawnabeg. Well, you’re not quite in the countryside, but a look outside the window could convince you otherwise.

Spanning 1,775 sq ft, this detached bungalow sits on the edge of Palmerston Park in the heart of leafy Dublin 6. Stephen’s Green is just a 15-minute drive away (or a 45-minute walk, if that’s your cup of tea).

Sitting on a neat 0.29 acre site, this three-bedroom home is accessed by a private driveway bounded by stone cut walls and a selection of plants, including roses, hydrangea, ferns and fuchsia.

Tawnabeg was totally refurbished and extended in 2016 so is in turnkey condition for its new owners.

Two large full-length windows and Velux windows flood the entrance hall with natural light and offer a smooth flow into the open plan dining room and kitchen.


In the country-style kitchen, double-height ceilings further add to the feeling of spaciousness that prevails throughout the property.

A cream three-oven Aga and an abundance of storage, as well as a centre island, make the kitchen a home cook’s dream.

French doors and side panels open from the dining room to the rear garden with a sandstone patio, a prime location for dining outdoors.

The southwest-facing garden, which backs onto Orchard Road, is 23m long, a fact that young families and dog owners will no doubt appreciate.

A bathroom with a tiled oak floor, rain shower and bath sits on the ground floor, as does a double bedroom with a large picture window and views over the front garden.

The master bedroom begins at the adjoining wall, with two large full length windows providing views out to the garden. A guest bathroom and third bedroom complete the ground floor.

Stairs in the hallway lead to the attic floor, with the landing area illuminated by four Velux windows. A seating area here, with a balcony overlooking the kitchen, provides further space for relaxation. 

The attic bedroom doesn’t compromise on size, with a shower room and walk-in hot press also on this floor.

Outside is a garage/shed, as well as a greenhouse for GIY fans.

Luas stops at Cowper Road and Milltown are within walking distance, while several schools (plus Trinity and UCD) are within easy reach. With Ranelagh, Rathmines and Dartry on its doorstep, as well as swift access to the city centre, Tawnabeg ticks all the boxes.
