Sherry FitzGerald and Hunters Estate Agent are honoured to present to the market this stunning double fronted regency home with spectacular views of Dublin Bay. This grande dame of the Monkstown seafront boasts circa 5,000sq.ft of generously proportioned accommodation with a wealth of stunning period features throughout. Built in circa 1830 the property was originally fully refurbished by the current owners in the early 1980’s and then updated again during the 1990’s. Throughout the house great care has been taken to source the best of design and craftsmanship to create a wonderful juxtaposition of old and new. This exceptional property is a landmark on this stretch of the seafront due to its unique projecting first floor bay window which affords the lucky owners with spectacular views.

Upon entering the property one is immediately greeted by a beautiful vestibule leading through a stained glass period door with fanlight to the grand reception hall with its magnificent sweeping staircase. To the right there is a large formal drawing room with fine white marble chimneypiece which in turn opens to an attractive sitting room through period folding double doors and another impressive marble fireplace. To the left of the hall one finds the dining room with another stunning chimneypiece with unusual register grate which in turn leads through to the wonderful light filled kitchen. To the rear of the kitchen there is a feature chrome and acrylic staircase leading to the light filled double height library room. On the entrance level return there is situated a utility room and guest w.c. Descending to the ground floor the feeling of space continues with a grand hall running the depth of the property. There is a cosy family room which could be a sixth bedroom if deemed necessary, a study, two further large double bedrooms overlooking the front garden one of which is ensuite and a guest shower room. To the rear one finds a superb living room opening to the feature library with bespoke oak shelving, butlers pantry and Crittall style French doors leading to the garden. The first floor return has a superb family bathroom and linen closet and is lit by a delightful cupola. Rising to the first floor the incredible breadth of the master bedroom is almost awe inspiring in its scale. A magnificent white marble fireplace, 13ft ceiling height combined with the large projecting windows allow the room to fill with light. From all points the panoramic view of the bay and Howth beyond is incredible. Adjoining the master bedroom is an excellent ensuite and dressing room with built-in wardrobes and a perfectly positioned whirlpool bath where one can soak while gazing at the ever changing hues of the sea. There are two further large double bedrooms at this level.

Outside to the front a landscaped garden with mature planting bounded by decorative cast iron railings leads to an impressive flight of granite steps rising to the front door. To the rear there is a landscaped garden bounded by old stone walling extending circa 60ft with mature planting, specimen trees, granite flagstones, terraced lawns and a cobbled patio with Wisteria & Jasmine covered pergola.

This unique property occupies an enviable position at the heart of Monkstown’s seafront. Bustling Monkstown Crescent has an enviable plethora of boutiques, restaurants and gourmet shops including a branch of Avoca. It is an easy walk to both Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire allowing one to enjoy both the pleasure of fine restaurants and enjoyable walks on the piers of old Kingstown. There is superb public transport with the Dart Station at Salthill. Nearby schools include CBC Monkstown, Newpark, Blackrock College, St. Andrew’s, Rathdown, Castlepark, Sion Hill, the Harold and Monkstown Educate Together to name but a few.
