DescriptionAn outstanding opportunity to acquire what is probably one of South Dublin's finest refurbished Victorian homes on approx. 0.26 ha (0.65 acres) with beautifully maintained, private and secluded extensive light filled gardens to front, side and rear.
As a wonderful extra addition, the original coach house of approx 90 sqm (968 sq ft) located to the rear of the gardens with separate vehicular access offers the potential for further accommodation.
Purchased by the current owners in 2012 who set about on a refurbishment programme sympathetic to the original features of this magnificent home, they have created a period property of approx. 326 sq m (3,500 sq ft) which truly serves as a comfortable home and is in walk in condition for the next owner. There is also the additional benefit of off-street parking for two or three cars via electric gates.
This Victorian home circa 1864 overlooks Vesey Park and Willow Bank, a well-established quiet road of only four large period homes overlooking the park.
Attractive granite steps lead to the hall door which opens to an inviting hall and inner hall. At this level there is a magnificent drawing room with two windows to the front, original fireplace and gold leaf wall covering. The dining room to the rear enjoys extensive views over the garden to the rear and at this level there is also the kitchen.
At garden level there is a gym which would easily convert to a kitchen, the current owners during the refurbishment installed plumbing in the event of converting this room in the future. There is also a utility, shower room and bedrooms four and five at this level with separate access to the front.
The first floor is truly magnificent with the main bedroom, positioned to the front with two large windows with views over the park. Two further bedrooms, both double rooms, a large bathroom and separate guest wc complete the accommodation at this level.
Within only a short walk to the seafront, Monkstown with it's wide selection of shops & restaurants and Dart, is an enviable location which is much sought after.
