DescriptionLocated equidistance from the village of Monkstown and Dun Laoghaire town centre, Vesey Place is a most attractive terrace of distinctive Victorian homes which peer out over the picturesque, leafy environs of Willowbank Park. An exceptionally handsome, double fronted, two storey over garden level residence, this magnificent home, which extends to approximately 435sqm (4,682sq ft), exudes all the architectural features that make houses of this era so unique, including tall ceilings heavily accented with intricate plaster work and large sliding sash windows allowing natural light to fill the home and compliment the grand proportions of the accommodation throughout. The abundance of rooms means there is great flexibility in how to live and utilize this home and will ensure that all the family's needs are met.
Built in the late 1840's, the terrace was named after the Vesey (de Vesci) family who were landlords of the area. The popularity of the location began to soar in the 1830's when the train line was brought out as far as Monkstown and it is now regarded as one of south County Dublin's most sought-after coastal suburbs.
A neat, railed garden leads up to the granite steps which rise to the main entrance. The hall door, with original fan light overhead, opens up into entrance portico and in turn through to entrance hall, where one can't help but marvel at the ceiling detail and archway through to the rear hall. It is flanked by a formal reception room on one side and a large kitchen / living / dining room on the other which has been cleverly and tastefully extended with an extensive use of glazing, to seamlessly connect the area to the garden. As you travel down to the ground floor level, there is a large cloaks closet on the return, which would make an ideal guest w.c., and further access to the garden. The garden level, with further access from the front of the property, has two bedrooms, three further reception rooms and utility room which runs through to a shower room. There is also a storage area under the granite steps. Further up the property, as you alight the stairwell from the main hall, there is a large landing with a beautiful feature window and a bedroom with a glazed roof. On the top floor, there is a principal bedroom suite with a large bedroom area with built in wardrobes, a walk in wardrobe and a large en-suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms at this level and family bathroom. There is a study at the top of the house.
To the rear of the property there is a south facing garden (approx. 85ft.) which enjoys the sunshine throughout the day and is a haven of peace and tranquillity. It laid mainly in lawn and its borders are stocked full of colourful mature plants and trees. It also has a sunken decked patio area that bathes in the south facing sun. To the front of the house there is a neat railed garden, again bordered with mature plants a shrubs.
The location needs little introduction. A wealth of amenities, both social and essential, lie within a short walk. There is ease of access to the beaches at Seapoint and Sandycove, for sea swimmers, and to walks along the seafront and both the East and West piers. Monkstown Crescent offers an excellent choice of specialty food shops, as well as fashionable clothes and interiors shops, bars and restaurants, including Avoca, Café du Journal and Cinnamon. Dun Laoghaire, meanwhile, has supermarkets, banks, and a multi-screen cinema, plus four sailing clubs. There are two tennis clubs within a few minutes' walk of the property. The locality is afforded great ease of access to the city centre, with excellent bus routes in the vicinity along with the DART, not to forget the Aircoach direct to Dublin Airport.
