No 2 Bayswater Terrace is a most impressive Georgian, three storey over garden level family residence within this secluded, intimate terrace of only four houses discreetly tucked away off Sandycove Road. Its superb position not only ensures it enjoys stunning unobstructed views of the Dublin Bay but it also benefits from having direct and private access to the water's edge Pied dans l'eau.
The property is beautifully appointed and comes to the market in pristine condition throughout. All the period embellishments of the Regency era are perfectly retained and intact. The exceptionally bright, light filled interior includes wonderful period features which are testament to an age when attention to detail was paramount. Original features such as ornate ceiling coving and cornicing, working window shutters and period fireplaces have been retained and are offset by superb modern touches including polished natural stone floors, solid hardwood flooring, Design House bespoke kitchen, fitted wardrobes, bookshelves and state of the art bathrooms.
The formal interconnecting drawing and dining rooms are some of the finest you will encounter and the study on first floor level enjoys dramatic panoramic coastal views. The drawing room opens onto a spacious veranda. This house is ideal for those who wish to entertain at home or for more intimate family occasions.
No 2 Bayswater is exceptionally well laid out with a very spacious floor area of 385 sq. m. (4,145 sq ft). At hall level there is a welcoming entrance with superb ornate ceiling coving, two impressive reception rooms with feature marble fireplaces and entrance to the upper patio.
At garden level there is a well-appointed guest w.c, a laundry room, a den and a bedroom with ensuite. There is a separate access to the property through this lower level from the front of the house. The bespoke kitchen and dining area is fitted with top of the range appliances and boasts a large island unit. In turn, the dining area opens out onto the lower terrace and garden. A pantry/boot room and wine store area completes the accommodation on this level.
Overhead at first floor level is the dramatic Study with fitted bookshelves, feature fireplace and bay window. Also at this level is the principle bedroom with bespoke fitted wardrobes and timber floors, adjoining this is the luxurious ensuite bathroom with twin wash hand basins, Jacuzzi bath, TV and multi feature shower unit. On the second floor there are three more double bedrooms (one of which is ensuite) and a family bathroom with double steam room. A second bathroom with Jacuzzi bath on the return completes the accommodation.
The gardens are as impressive as the house itself and run down to the water's edge, beautifully landscaped, planted with mature shrubs and illuminated manicured beds, feature patio areas, spacious summer house and barbeque area. The summer house is positioned directly adjacent to the water and is self contained complete with fridge, bar fridge, wc and running water. A private gateway gives access to the water for those who enjoy a daily swim, SUP, windsurfing or fishing.
No 2 Bayswater Terrace occupies an enviable position close to the charming villages of Dalkey & Sandycove with their myriad of fine eateries, specialist shops and pubs. The local area has a variety of amenities at hand with the widely popular bathing area at The Forty Foot just a gentle stroll away. This property enjoys close proximity to excellent primary and secondary schools and a wide variety of sporting facilities including golf, tennis, football, rugby, with four yacht clubs at the extensive marina just down the road at Dun Laoghaire Harbour. Excellent transport links are readily available with DART and all major bus routes including the Aircoach.
