DescriptionDun Laoghaire residents might remember 20 Wellington Street as Knowles Electrical in a previous life. The current owner purchased the building in 2013 and in conjunction with expert architect Mark Monaghan, completed a thoughtful conversion to residential. Behind an unassuming facade, the house is immediately impressive and cleverly laid out, but without a doubt, its most outstanding feature is the large roof terrace with BBQ, dining and lounge areas which enjoy panoramic views of Dublin Bay and Howth Head.
The entrance hall, with stylish patterned tiles, leads to three double bedrooms, with principle en-suite, two of which lead to what feels like a cool and contemporary internal courtyard. There is a full bathroom at this level along with a bike store which opens directly onto the street to aid your commute. On the return, there is a utility room and study, which could easily be a fourth double bedroom if required. On the first floor there is a large shower room and the rest of the accommodation has been opened up to create an inviting open plan living/kitchen/dining with a wood burning stove and three large light bearing windows. The area feels spacious with a cozy atmosphere - a great space for indoor entertaining.
A stairway leads from this area up to a glazed lobby which gives access to the roof terrace, the likes of which is rarely seen in Dublin. A substantially large area of over 600 sq ft, it is laid out for summer entertaining with a lounge area, dining area and BBQ area. Upcycled scaffolding create the flooring and raised planters with plants and shrubs soften the perimeter. Boasting more of a feel of an entertainment venue than a simple roof terrace, it is further enhanced by the incredible elevated views of Dublin Bay and Howth Head.
The location of this home could not be better, just a stones throw from the main street. Dun Laoghaire offers a wide variety of amenities, including excellent shopping facilities, transport links, trendy restaurants and cozy cafes. The seafront offers excellent facilities for marine leisure enthusiasts including numerous yacht clubs and coastal walks. The close by villages of Monkstown and Glasthule boast many more specialist boutiques, eateries and delicatessens. There are several highly regarded schools within close proximity, including Rathdown, CBC Monkstown, Blackrock College, St. Joseph's of Cluny and Loreto Dalkey. Nearby transport links include the DART, while several Dublin Bus routes including the 7, 7A, 46A, 45A and 111 are only minutes walk away.
