Kitchen sink in the hallway, anyone?
As Dublin house prices continue to rise we’re rarely shocked by high price tags anymore, no matter how small or run-down the property may be.
However, every now and then a gaff comes along with the ability to render even the most jaded home hunters speechless.
One such property is 6 Gulistan Cottages, Rathmines, an oddly-shaped, 1-bedroom bungalow with an oven in the hallway and a layout that defies gravity.
Currently on the market for €350k, the minuscule home covers just 28 sqm. As the popular Twitter account, Crazy House Prices points out – “that’s a lovely €12,500/sqm”.
The accommodation consists of an entrance porch, 1 bedroom, kitchenette, living room, shower room, and a rear courtyard. Many Twitter users have jokingly expressed concerns about the “kitchenette” – a generous name for a lone oven plonked on its own in a corridor.
The myhome.ie description for the property reads:
“McGuirk Beggan Property is thrilled to bring 6 Gulistan Cottages to the market offering a wonderful opportunity to acquire and modernise this terraced cottage that is full of character and charm situated in this quiet enclave just minutes from the Ranelagh & Rathmines villages and the city centre”.
The listing also reveals that the cottage used to be a 2-bedroom, but the second bedroom was converted into a shower room.
The full listing is available to view HERE.
