DescriptionJanet Carroll Estate Agents are delighted to present the Hall Floor Apartment, 1 Eaton Square in Monkstown for sale by private treaty. This is a superb opportunity to purchase this unique large Victorian property built circa 1865. It is full of character with high ceilings, beautifully proportioned rooms, original polished floorboards and big bright windows. Enjoy the luxury and charm that a period property has to offer without the responsibility of maintaining a period house and garden. The apartment has been in the same ownership for 34 years and has been lovingly maintained and sensitively modernised over the years. The other apartments in the building are also owner occupied and proudly maintained.
This 2-bedroom hall floor apartment (c. 904sqft/ 84 sqm) feels more like a house than an apartment. It would suit a range of buyers from those wishing to retire, couples, those looking for an elegant base in Dublin or a small family.
The apartment has a beautiful original bay window overlooking historic Eaton Square. The park is privately owned by Eaton Square residents. There is a stunning view from the bay window of the much photographed 200 year old walnut tree. The residents' association is very active and the park is beautifully maintained and planted. There are annual residents' BBQs and get togethers over the Summer months.
Monkstown is a beautiful and thriving historic village recently extensively and stunningly upgraded by DLR County Council. There are many fine eateries, exclusive boutiques and high-end grocery shops, including the famous Avoca grocery and cafe. This superb prime area is in very high demand due to its proximity to the sea front, 3 yacht clubs and coastal walks as well as great transport links to the city with the DART and bus (approx. 25 mins to city). There is also a cycle lane from Monkstown to the city and further south to Dun Laoghaire and beyond.
