Built in the 1840’s as an Estate cottage for the Longford De Vesci estate, 2 Lower Eden Road is a spacious, welcoming and flexible home comprehensively restored by the current owner. The unique setting has a quiet country cottage feel, yet it is only a stone's throw from Glasthule Village with its vast offerings, both social and essential. This presents a rare opportunity to acquire a truly wonderful home in a location which is beyond compare – early viewing is essential!
One of the first houses in Glasthule, Number 2 was tenanted by the same family from 1911 until 2002 when the current owner bought and restored it. A spacious and light-filled extension, added in 2005, contrasts with the coziness of the original house. The accommodation comprises; porch, living room with original fireplace, three bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, another with a working open fire, kitchen opening to a dining room, and a family bathroom with Victorian clawfoot bath. The rear courtyard is an incredibly private space fully enclosed by original white washed walls.
The property is located five minutes’ walk from the picturesque Sandycove beach, seafront walks including Dun Laoghaire harbours’ pier walks and Newtownsmith Promenade, while Glasthule village with its array of specialty shops, boutiques, coffee shops pubs and restaurants is just around the corner. Nearby transport links include Glenageary and Glasthule DART stations and the No. 7 bus route which offers great ease of access to the city centre. The No. 59 bus is also convenient for swift access to Dun Laoghaire and Dalkey.
