DescriptionUtterly charming and characterful throughout, No.18 Oliver Plunkett Avenue has been lovingly restored to its 1930s elegance by its current owners and is picture perfect and instantly appealing. Its beautiful double fronted façade is sweetly framed by a riot of colourful plants and shrubs, sparking excited anticipation of what lies behind the hall door.
The traditional black and white tiled hall leads through to a bright living room which is dual aspect and boasts a very impressive reclaimed 1930s fireplace. This room also offers access to the garden. The kitchen / dining room, with beautiful slate floor, has tongue and groove built-in wall and floor units and a double Belfast sink and the sunny dining area has double doors which open out onto the sun-trap rear garden. The modern shower room has been recently refurbished to include underfloor heating, walk-in shower, solid marble floor tiles and extensive storage. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, the principle of which is dual aspect with the original 1930s cast iron fireplace.
The property also comes with full planning permission for a two-storey extension to the rear (planning reference D17A/0332) which would increase the accommodation to 98sq.m / 1,054 sq.ft. The owners have also secured planning for off-street parking in the same application. Currently to the front of the property there is a beautifully planted garden bursting with a profusion of plants and shrubs. To the rear, the private south-facing garden features a Lacken Stone patio edged with flowering plants and raised borders which give colour throughout the year and is a magical place to sit and enjoy the sun throughout the day or a drink under the stars - it really is an oasis of calm and seclusion.
The property is located in this extremely popular residential area close to a wide array of amenities in Monkstown and Dun Laoghaire. The area offers a choice of shopping and recreational facilities, including gourmet restaurants, boutiques, cafes and bars, whilst the seafront offers marine leisure facilities, year-round swimming and coastal walks. It is also close to a wide selection of excellent local schools including Monkstown Educate Together, Scoil Lorcáin, CBC Monkstown, Rathdown and more. Public transport links are well catered for with the 46a, 4, 75 and 63 buses all nearby. 10 minutes walking distance to Salthill & Monkstown DART / train station.
