Description8 & 8A Seafield Avenue is an exceptionally attractive semi-detached three storey Victorian period residence with a two-bedroom cottage occupying a highly sought-after coastal location. Rarely does a property of this grandeur come for sale on Seafield Avenue.
No. 8 is a bright and airy, three story family home with wonderful proportions that extend to approximately 292sq.m (3,143sq.ft) with many of the features from the early Victorian era intact. Upon entering one is instantly struck by the charm and character of No. 8. An entrance hall with parquet floors, ceiling coving, centre roses and arched picture windows greets you. Off the hall is a large reception room with high ceilings and picture window to the rear garden, this room is currently laid out as a bedsit, but it takes little imagination to see how easily it could become your main living area with double doors to the rear garden. A second large room currently used as a study could be reopened to the living room to create even more space. The rear hallway runs to a door to the garden and houses a large storage cupboard and the owner's favourite room, a workshop currently lined with every tool imaginable. The first floor return houses a shower room and study/ playroom with access out onto a roof terrace which catches sun throughout the day. At first floor level are two bright and spacious rooms currently used as a living room with concertina doors to the dining room. Both these rooms burst with Victorian charm boasting 11ft high ceilings, ceiling coving and original marble fireplaces. A kitchen/ breakfast room with utility complete this floor. Finally, on the second floor and return are three large bright double bedrooms and a second bathroom.
8 comes with the added bonus of having an investment property 8A to the side. 8A is an immaculately presented spacious two-bedroom cottage measuring approximately 110sq.m (1,184sq.ft) which bursts with natural light. An open plan kitchen, newly refurbished bathroom, large double bedroom and attic room currently used as a bedroom/ study and large living room complete the accommodation. Double doors from the living room lead to the rear garden where a private patio area creates space to dine ‘'Al Fresco'' in the evening sunshine. The gardens of 8 & 8A Seafield Avenue are bursting with life in the form of mature trees, plants and shrubs. To the front there is off street parking for multiple cars and door to the courtyard of the cottage. To the rear is a private, tranquil, leafy (85ft) west facing garden, a perfect place for children to play.
This superb family home is located in the much sought after and highly desirable area of Monkstown just a short walking distance from Dun Laoghaire and Monkstown/Salthill DART stations as well as regular bus services on York Road including the 46A. There are a wide range of excellent facilities and amenities in Monkstown and Dun Laoghaire that include local and boutique shops, shopping centres, cafes, bars and some of the finest restaurants in South County Dublin. Along with a selection of excellent primary and secondary schools to include Scoil Lorcain, Castle Park Dalkey, C.B.C Monkstown and Rathdown, Glenageary to name a few, there are many recreational and leisure amenities close by such as golf and tennis clubs and the Monkstown Leisure Centre with a swimming pool.
