Whitworth Terrace links Whitworth Avenue and St Patricks Avenue in Drumcondra, and number 4 is home to Dr Maria Farren and her family: “I bought here in 2008 at the age of 24, it was my first home so I will always have a fondness for it,” says Farren.

With a growing family they are now upsizing in the locality and have placed the cottage on the market through DNG with an asking price of €410,000.

The interiors are stunning and are a good example of what can be achieved with good design in a relatively small space – the property measures 70sq m.

Refurbished by previous owners in 2006, the property now has two double bedrooms and unusually both are en-suite, which will also make the house attractive to potential investors seeking a rental property. Two-bedroom units in the locality command rents of €1,850 per month.

There is also a guest bathroom, and quite a lot of storage throughout in addition to a spacious kitchen.

To the front of the property is a living room and bedroom which lead to an open plan kitchen and dining area – this space has the bonus of an open fire. The main bedroom sits to the rear overlooking the garden, which is a mixture of decking and grass and is sizeable – compared to most canal-side houses.

The location is a 25 minute walk to O’Connell Street and two minutes to the train station. In recent years many hipster cafes have opened in the locality and all are within walking distance.

The property would make an ideal first home or investment property, due to its proximity to the city and the fact that it is in turnkey condition.
