6 Mill Terrace enjoys an idyllic location with views over the Liffey and the Strawberry Beds built c. 1710. 6 Mill Terrace is one of four properties that date back to the age of early industrialists for whom the River Liffey was vitally important and a source of great economic strength. Mill Terrace is situated facing the Mill Race, a channel carrying a swift current of water that drove the mill wheels of old leading down to the former mills in this location. Each house has a small plot to the front beside the Mill Race. There is parking to the front of the terrace and to the rear are stepped south facing gardens extending to approximately 10m. As the property dates from 1710 it is an area of architectural interest and preservation of heritage and please note that the property is a protected structure.
Number 6 is a two-storey mid terrace house with an annex to the rear. The accommodation extends to 78sqm (840 sq. Ft) and comprises of an entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and annex at ground floor level with bathroom and fuel store. Upstairs there is a large double bedroom overlooking the rear garden and there is a sitting room that offers beautiful views towards the Liffey and Strawberry Beds to the front. This is truly a peaceful and tranquil leafy paradise. The property has been occupied until recently but would benefit from an extensive renovation. The heating is oil fired heating and the windows are the original sash windows. This is a truly unique corner of the world and a property rich in heritage one would expect to be in the heart of beautiful rural countryside and yet only minutes' walk from Palmerstown Village and providing easy access to the N4 and M50 road network from which the entire city can be reached conveniently. This truly is a rare opportunity to buy a most interesting and charming property in truly unique setting. Mill Lane is situated off the main street of Palmerstown village and runs down to the River Liffey opposite the Strawberry Beds. The convenience of the location speaks for itself being within striking distance of the city centre and surrounded by an abundance of local amenities including shops, restaurants, bars, schools, recreational and sporting facilities. Liffey Valley Shopping Centre is just a short drive away and the nearby M50/N4 interchange offers easy access to the airport and all national routes. In terms of public transport, the area is well serviced by the 25, 66 and 67 bus routes and the train at Park West & Cherry Orchard is less than a 10-minute drive away. For those that enjoy the great outdoors, the fabulous open spaces of Waterstown Park and the Phoenix Park are only minutes away.
