Janet Carroll Estate Agents are thrilled to present this simply stunning four-bedroom detached home (c. 2,207 sqft/ 205 sqm) in a prime Monkstown residential location. Maison, 95 Monkstown Avenue was renovated to the highest of standards for style and quality. This property has been carefully curated and modernised to maximise the living space with a clever extension to the rear and the additional studio/garden room is a stroke of genius.
In a busy market, buyers are jaded by property that needs to be renovated due to the fact that refurbishment costs are at an all time high, that's... if you can find a builder! This is the answer to what so many people want. Not only is this 1950s home full of character, it is also set on a generous site with off street parking. It has the added benefit of being completely revitalised, rewired and replumbed. With a BER rating of B2, astute lovers of property will be left in no doubt that this home has quality stamped all over it. The vendors have the combined abilities of style, artistry and construction which is how they created such a well-rounded home that longs for nothing but a new custodian.
This home is a force to be reckoned with! Viewing is not to be missed.

This is versatile room that has plenty of space for household items, school gear and coats or indeed as a study, home office or anything one would like.
Drawing Room: c. 3.87m x 3.75m
This room is almost like a chameleon in that it can adapt to an owners' needs. It can be a comfortable sitting room to enjoy quiet nights in or a drawing room to entertain guest post dinner party. An inset stove is a lovely touch as so many modern homes do not have this staple Irish creature comfort.
Tiled floor and walls, wc with concealed cistern, wash hand basin and fitted vanity.
Kitchen/Dining/Family Area: c. 11.16m x 8.13m
This room is absolutely stunning. High ceilings raising to c. 3.185m in the main area. Full of light, space and highly practical, this room will be the envy of many but only one lucky party will call it home. Zoned lighting depending on where you wish to sit, cook or entertain. A special mention must go to the oversized atrium rooflight that is not only a superb centrepiece to the space but also perfect for naturally illuminating the heart of this home. Large island finished in quartz thus matching the counters. Plenty of storage for all cooks, bakers and food lovers/entertainers alike. The island also has a breakfast bar area for morning coffee and catch ups. High quality appliances in the form of Neff double oven, microwave, stainless steel extractor fan, induction hob and a large Bosch American fridge freezer are further examples of the careful thought put into the home.
Three sets of French doors frame the landscaped rear garden. They not only brighten the kitchen but also bring outside, inside creating a clever marriage of earthy materials with pristine white stone and contemporary appliances. The beauty of this part of the house lies in the open plan arrangement. This was obtained by adding an extension which will suit any number of uses but in its present form serves as a kitchen/ dining area with two sitting areas. Another clever win for this room is a stove in the corner that feels separated by furniture and clean lines. Art adorns the walls and is a perfect way to convey space one would have, should they already own or are considering a foray into art collecting.
Note: Arts are not included in the sale.
Set to the rear of the kitchen and has an additional stainless-steel sink and drainer. New combi boiler fitted (uses 90+% of fuel as opposed to older models) providing hot water on demand. Plenty of wall and floor units as well as CCTV system and Comms Cabinet and an ingenious laundry chute that allows clothes be sent directly from the main bathroom upstairs� so no more excuses for forgetting the wash basket!
Additional door to the side passage of the house (from kitchen).
As one ascends the stairs it is hard to miss a large frosted feature window that conveys the height at this landing of circa 5.21m.

The main bedroom is spacious and practical with a superbly set half-moon wall that encloses the en suite. Its soft angle does not impose on the room and provides for a feeling of understated elegance. With fitted carpet and window to the rear.

Bedroom 4: c. 4.81m x 3.67m
Fitted carpet with inset wardrobe and window to the rear garden. Access to the attic in this room.
Bathroom: c. 3.11m x 2.40m
The vendors saw an opportunity to repurpose a small box bedroom and turn it into a superb family bathroom. This room is akin to a bathroom in a modern boutique hotel. With skylight, twin wash hand basins and storage this room wants for nothing except a luxurious bar of soap. Bath with tiled surround and a laundry chute is a master stroke. Step in shower and shelving set to the back wall. The colours are perfect, balancing clean cut white with contemporary grey tones and wood effect tiling that gives an earthy warmth.
To the front there are electric gates leading to a gravel drive that would fit circa 4 cars. This is perfect for families. To the rear there is an unbelievable space that will leave most wishing they had thought of it themselves. Granite raised patio that sits atop the lawn creating a raised platform for entertaining or lazy lunches in the sun. Custom brick BBQ area with bespoke concrete counters and very useful sink with hot and cold water. A clever addition is the Ceramic bbq grill which has captured the attention of backyard chefs around the globe. This is included in the sale.
But wait, there is more! Follow the steps to the lawn framed by stone on either side and one sees the true genius behind this garden, an additional outdoor studio/ office or would we dare say 'man cave'! It has been built to the highest standards with insulation, new wiring complete with separate fuse board and alarm. Herringbone floor give the impression of luxury without compromising on the practicality that this room may need to adapt to. This room (c. 6.30m x 2.86m) has the space to become whatever the new owners wish. The vendors were careful to choose a classically styled reclaimed roof tile to ensure this outdoor studio matched that of the house and maintained its understated elegance.
