DNG are delighted to present to the market Number 8 St Joseph’s Cottages. Meticulously restored, extended and redesigned this beautiful three-bedroom period cottage (built circa.1905) is ideally positioned on the boundary wall of the Phoenix Park.

The convenience of the location is second to none with the renowned "Hole in the Wall pub", the M50 motorway, the City Centre and the Phoenix Park are all but a mere stone’s throw away.
Behind the brick façade lies a modern home that has been well cared for by the current owners. Upon entering, you are met with a long inviting hallway that provides access to the main living room, of which offers a number of standout features such as the raised ceiling height, complete with a Velux window and an immaculately restored fireplace at the heart of the space. The first of three double bedrooms sits adjacent to the living room and features bespoke sliding wardrobes. The family room and fully fitted contemporary kitchen/ dining room are located in the double height extension to the rear, due to the position of the property, the entire cottage is flooded with an abundance of natural light throughout. Completing the downstairs accommodation is a fully tiled family bathroom.

Ideal for hosting guests the rear garden is both lawned and paved and further provides a raised platform that captures the last of the evening sun.
