A charming 2-bedroom cottage and also a semi-derelict house all on about 2 acres
The cottage was built in about 1933 and designed by the Dublin architect Frank Gibney, an influential figure in the history of Irish architecture and in particular renowned for his post-war housing schemes.
Occupying a south facing position off the Portrane Road, a gated entrance leads up a gravelled driveway to Beechcroft where there is ample parking around the cottage. Steps lead up to the porch and an internal hallway which offers access to the sitting room and features an open fireplace. A kitchen is fully fitted with a shower room/wc off this. Both bedrooms are accessed off the internal hallway. The cottage would benefit from modernisation and refurbishment and extends to about 59 sq m / 635 sq ft as shown on the accompanying floorplans.
To the rear of the cottage is a separate single-storey house of traditional construction. The house has been vacant for some time and is in a semi-derelict state of repair.
There is a range of outbuildings comprising useful stores located to the rear of the property.
Gardens & Grounds
