Nice moves | An urban cottage in Rathmines revamp

Dublin 6, €380,000

The current owner of No 53 Gulistan Cottages in Rathmines has transformed the small, dark two-bedroom Victorian cottage into an altogether brighter space. She extended the bathroom, putting in a roof window, and opened up the eaves in the main living/kitchen space, further brightening up the place with two more skylights.

She installed a wood-burning stove in the living room, and then worked off a white palette to create bright and airy rooms. A french door opens from the main bedroom to a tiny back yard.

Life has changed drastically in the past three years and she and her partner have recently had twins, so are moving on to something more substantial.


They say: Were an investor to buy No 53 Gulistan Cottages, they would rent it for €1,750 per month

We say: Two’s company, four’s a crowd.
