21 Trafalgar Terrace
enjoying breath taking views and a spectacular vista across Dublin Bay to Howth which are equally dramatic by both day and night.
Take an early morning swim at Seapoint or cycle along the wonderful dedicated cycle path followed by a coffee in one of the many coffee shops in the picturesque Monkstown village which is bustling with cafes, bistros and boutiques and has a distinctly Continental atmosphere. Enjoy the relaxed lifestyle and amenities that this very special area has to offer including , sea swimming, coastal walks, cycling, yachting and fishing to name but a few.
This splendid family home offers very generous and flexible accommodation and plenty of space to work from home together with all the original period features every modern comfort and a glorious totally private south facing garden, a beautiful oasis of peace and quiet by the sea.
Number 21 is a stunning period residence of immense character and charm situated along this popular terrace off Seapoint Avenue. Rarely do houses of this age, 1840, come to the market displaying so many original architectural features which have been sensitively refurbished. Dramatic in appearance number 21 occupies a prominent position on this popular terrace and benefits from wonderful sea views over Dublin bay towards Howth.
The extent of the substantial and superbly proportioned accommodation only becomes evident as you walk through the house. What is particularly unusual is the 4 storey return, which helps define an astonishing 5,500sq.ft. of accommodation.
The dramatic entrance hall sets the tone for the accommodation to follow. Not only are there inter communicating reception on the hall floor but the entire first floor provides for two exceptional connecting reception rooms which, like all the rooms to the front of the house, take full advantage of the wonderful views.
The extensive accommodation provides for a versatile layout of choice. Decide yourself on what the balance of accommodation should be. The current layout has a greater emphasis on reception rather than bedroom accommodation, however the property could easily provide for 5 or 6 bedrooms.
Finally, it is easy to understand why the location is so popular. Situated opposite the Martello Tower at Seapoint, Trafalgar Terrace is half way between Blackrock and Monkstown and close to the host of amenities they offer with excellent shopping and schools and enjoying easy access to the DART.
The property is situated towards the end of a small terrace of varying house types in a small enclave off Seapoint Avenue which is in effect a cul-de-sac. The rear of 21 is enclosed by attractive granite faced walls and has been professionally laid out in Victorian style with attractive low walls and hedging and cobble lock pathways together with a feature circular pond and fountain. The garden is extensively planted with mature trees, plants, shrubs and enjoys a southerly orientation
