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.

The west facing rear garden is laid out as lawn bordered with mature flowerbeds and the large patio area, situated a few steps below the lawn level, is perfect for dining ‘al fresco’ and enjoying the evening sun. The large building at the end of the garden is suitable for use as storage room, studio or garage for up to three cars. Vehicular access is along a secure gated back lane. The front garden, also laid out with lawn and mature flowerbeds, enhances the imposing granite steps to the front door.

The location is just 5 minutes’ walk from the popular bathing spot at Seapoint, the DART and the charming village of Monkstown with its array of boutiques, restaurants and bars. Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire are close by with a superb range of shops, supermarkets and eateries. The area is also well served by premier schools, sports clubs and is just a short walk from Dun Laoghaire harbour with its many marine and leisure facilities. Dublin City Centre is only 7 miles away and transport needs are well catered for with Salthill & Monkstown DART station just a short walk away while numerous bus routes are available on the doorstep and the Aircoach provides a regular service directly to the airport.
