Our home

** We are looking for an exchange in France this summer 2019.
Renovated terraced house with a bright airy open plan living space. The galley kitchen has a breakfast area with lovely views of the garden. Double doors connect to a decking area. The attic has been converted and may be used as additional accommodation on request.

Located in the leafy suburb of Milltown, 1 min walk from Windy Arbour luas stop, 15 mins to St Stephens Green and 5 mins to Dundrum shopping centre. Perfect for families and couples alike. Free on-street parking.

The space

Our house is a renovated terraced house consisting of a bright and airy open plan living room and dining room. The living room contains a television, two couches and a novel little reading nook carved out under the stairs. The dining room has a large dining table that seats seven (a high chair may also be provided on request). There is also a small children’s play area.

There is a long galley kitchen at the back of the house with a breakfast area at the end that has lovely views of the surrounding garden. In the kitchen there is a kettle, Nutribullet, microwave, coffee machine, oven and hob, fridge and freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

There are double doors from both the dining area and the kitchen onto a beautiful decking area which gets the sun for most of the day (and all evening). There is a table and 4 chairs which is perfect for dining al fresco and two sun loungers for lazing in this suntrap. The rest of the garden consists of mature flower beds and a small grassy lawn.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms and one bathroom. There is one double bedroom. The other bedroom has a single bed (that may also be converted into a double on request, however note that this will restrict the space in this room) and a child’s cot bed. A second child’s travel cot is also available if required. The bathroom has a powerful, hot shower complete with a baby bath if required.

The attic has been converted into a small study with a day bed that may be used as additional accommodation on request (note this is not suitable for a small child given the steep stairs up to it). The room benefits from two large velux windows letting in light and sunshine with views to the mountains beyond.
