DescriptionDistinguished as on one of the most sought after addresses in Dun Laoghaire, No.9 stands on the eastern side of the railed four acre park, enjoying an idyllic and tranquil setting coupled with incredible convenience. Exemplifying incredible attention to detail, the current owners have reimagined and redesigned this traditional Victorian home to ensure the entire property is usable and functional for everyday living, while maintaining the flexibility these homes offer in abundance.
Newly renovated by its interior designer owner, it's a real pleasure to explore this home and as a striking as the interiors may be, the original beauty of the property remains front and centre, while the garden level showcases the residents love of classic minimalism.
At the formal entrance hall your eye is immediately drawn above you to the three ceiling roses bordered by intricate cornicing. The formal reception rooms have been interconnected by an archway and the simple base of dark stained original floor in contrast with white walls, masterfully showcases both the striking interiors and the original features while the west facing bay window frames the scenic view of the central parkland. On the return there is a storage closet, which is also plumbed for a guest w.c., and a sleek bright white kitchen, which also gives access to the garden. On the garden level, polished concrete floors flow throughout and the interconnecting reception rooms currently serve as a study /fourth bedroom and sliding pocket doors lead through to the den, which has access to the garden. There is also an under-stair shower room and full kitchen at this level, which also has separate access from the front of the property.
On the upper floor floors there is a guest w.c and an exquisite bathroom on the return. The original cast iron fireplace is set into a wall of colourful feature wallpaper and a free standing Victoria and Albert Bath sits upon the marble tiled floor. The Duravit sink sits into a floating pedestal and is mounted on a partition, beyond which there is a walk in shower area with a mosaic floor and marble tiled walls. On the first floor, the principle bedroom spans the entire width of the house and its colossal windows drench the room in natural light. There is a further double bedroom with en-suite on this floor and on the top return there is a shower room and double bedroom.
To the front of the house there is a railed garden bordered by a selection of mature plants and colourful roses. To the rear of the house there is a garden laid mainly in lawn with mature planting along its borders and a stepping-stone path leads to a patio and garage. The garage currently serves as additional storage and double doors allow for vehicle rear access via the large laneway to the rear. The garage could easily be upgraded to offer itself as a recreation area to the property or a home office (subject to planning).
The location of this property is superb with great ease of access to a vast array of amenities both social and essential including shopping facilities in Glasthule, Dun Laoghaire and Monkstown, excellent transport links including popular bus routes, the DART and the Aircoach and easy access to highly regarded schools such as Castle Park, CBC Monkstown, Blackrock College, Loreto Dalkey and St Joseph of Cluny. Leisure facilities are also in abundance in the locality with many local sporting clubs and the nearby coastline for enjoying leisurely strolls, while the four yacht clubs in Dun Laoghaire will be of great interest to budding and experienced sailors.
Light filled and spacious accommodation, meticulously finished, this is a spectacular home in a highly regarded location and viewing highly recommended.
