The single-storey cottages of Kinahan Street are within a few minutes’ walk of the North Circular Road entrance of the Phoenix Park, Dublin’s largest green space. Indeed its Wellington monument looms large as you walk down Aberdeen Street to Infirmary Road.

Extending to more than 7sq km it is home to a herd of deer, all the wildlife at Dublin Zoo, numerous cycle paths, walking trails and the delicious home cooking of the Phoenix Park cafe, which uses produce grown in the adjoining walled garden for its soups and stews. Farmleigh House and Estate, the official State guest house, with its gardens and curvilinear glasshouses, is another amenity where there are free concerts and a farmers’ market at weekends, outside of Covid-19 restrictions.   

While relatively small, the artisan homes of Kinahan Street are mainly double-fronted, which helps flood the properties with light.

Set up as a two-bedroom property number 10 is mid-terrace and situated on the sunny side of the street. It has a decent-sized yard to its rear, at least by the standards of many of its neighbours in this corner of Dublin 7. Completely private, it has a south-east aspect and is big enough for a decent sized garden sofa plus barbecue and bins. You will get morning and afternoon sun here.

The front door opens into a small hall with the main bedroom to the left.

The open-plan kitchen/livingroom is set in an L-shape to the right. The lounge is to the front where its sofa faces an original open fireplace.

A rooflight to the back makes this a dual aspect space that is further illuminated by a glass back door off the kitchen. A small breakfast bar links the sitting area to the kitchen where there are oak-look units and laminate countertops. Underfoot is a walnut-look laminate floor.

Out back there’s a windowed shower room and another room in use as a nursery; with about 5.5sq m, it would also make a great home office. The current owners bought the house in November 2018 for €250,000, according to the Property Price Register.

The 39sq m (420sq ft) house, which has a Ber of E2, is asking €350,000 through SherryFitzGerald. Parking is on street.
