DescriptionSherry FitzGerald are delighted to present 21 Cambridge Terrace to the market, a truly incredible red brick period home featuring impressive accommodation over four spacious levels alongside glorious landscaped gardens and plenty of parking. The property has been tastefully renovated from top to toe, preserving the very best of the period detailing and blending this with high quality modern luxuries throughout.
The main entrance is at the front and up a set of imposing granite steps to the front door. This leads to the entrance vestibule and through to the main hallway with high ceilings and wonderful original details. The kitchen is at the front and spans through to a sitting room to one side and then opens through to the dining room to the rear, making this sociable area the real hub of the home. The kitchen is bespoke and made by the renowned 'Christoff', blending beautifully with the additional joinery in the adjoining rooms. There is a large island unit with space for breakfast bar stools as well as a lovely window seat in the large bay to the front. There is plenty of space for a large sitting room area to one side and the dining room at the rear comfortably houses a big table and multiple chairs. There is a cloakroom and WC on this level along with a separate television room/snug at the rear.
The lower ground floor has separate access to the side and the rear and is currently used as plenty more living space by the current owners. There is a large bay fronted living room at the front, a spacious garden room / sitting room at the rear as well as a good-sized office / studio, a laundry room / utility room and a separate WC.
The first floor features a fantastic family bathroom at half-landing level as well as a glorious master bedroom at the front and a large guest double bedroom to the rear.
The second floor features three further bedrooms, two large doubles to the front and the rear as well as a good sized single room. There is a shower room servicing this level as well as a charming landing space with a pretty arched window and views of the Dun Laoghaire Presbyterian Church next door and the sea beyond.
The gardens are absolutely beautiful and have been tastefully landscaped at both the front and the rear. There is a gate to the front and a stone paved path leading to the front steps as well as the side and rear of the house. The front garden has a smart symmetrical pebbled space with box hedging and attractive shrubbery. It is a good size and takes the property away from York Road at the front. The rear garden is an excellent size and has the added benefit of a westerly aspect, making the most of the afternoon and evening sun when it is here! There are various stone patio seating areas, one accessed from the garden room and with a fitted pergola, fitted bench and pretty raised flower beds. The main patio is large in size and has plenty of space for a big table and chair set. There is a substantial gas barbecue as well as a brick chimney style pizza oven with a period style fireplace below. There is then a shaped lawned garden beyond this with glorious mature borders packed full of different shapes and colours. The rear of the garden is set up as an adventure playground for children with an attractive wooden 'fairy tale' style play house and pirate ship as well as a miniature Giants Causeway and storage shed at the back. There is lighting in the garden both in the side passage and throughout the rear garden and electrical sockets in the shed. There is a gate to the side leading to the drive way parking area which includes a separate recessed bike store to the rear. The electric gate at the rear leads to a further parking area accessed from Knapton Lane.
The property is located on York Road which divides Monkstown to the west and Dun Laoghaire to the east, both of which are easily accessible for local shops and amenities. Dun Laoghaire is a beautiful coastal town with a magnificent pier providing beautiful walks, yacht clubs and a marina. There are excellent transport facilities including the DART and numerous bus routes providing regular and convenient services to the City Centre. There is a great selection of quality cafes, bars, restaurants and eateries together with a range of shops, boutiques, library, theatre and cinema.
