4 Grosvenor Terrace, Monkstown, Co. Dublin, A94 AD65

€1,595,000 - Asking Price|4 Bedrooms, 272 sqm approx

A most attractive two-storey over basement residence, no.4 occupies an imposing position in this terrace of eight, handsome red brick Victorian homes. Boasting elegantly proportioned rooms which are complimented by an abundance of very fine original features, the property has incredible potential to be transformed into a wonderful family home (subject to p.p.) with a west facing rear garden and secure gated vehicular rear access into a garage. Positioned just around the corner from Monkstown village, this fine home has a wealth of popular amenities and transport facilities on its doorstep and is sure to appeal to a wide audience.

It is most fortunate that this house has almost all of its original features, for example: Carrara marble fireplaces, enriched plaster cornices and acanthus ceiling rose, mahogany staircase banister rail ending with a finely carved volute, entrance hall and first floor hall arches and detailed double doors and interconnecting the principle reception rooms. The presence of such features is of great benefit to the discerning purchaser, rather than having to reinstate them. Partitions between levels have been installed very sensitively and can be easily undone.

Currently laid out as three separate units, the accommodation is over three floors. At garden level the apartment comprises; porch with store room, living room overlooking the front garden and opening to the dining room, separate study, kitchen with large pantry area, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. At entrance hall level, a wide hallway offers access to the two further apartments. On this level there are two large interconnecting reception rooms with a guest w.c. A door towards the end of the hall leads to the kitchen and shower room which gives access to the rear garden. On the first floor there is a spacious two bedroom apartment with a separate kitchen, bathroom and large living room with views over the garden, rooftops and church steeple.
