Full Description

A magnificent double fronted two storey over basement level mid-terrace Victorian period residence, built in
Regency style, full of charm and character, positioned at the top of this iconic terrace overlooking the privately
owned grounds of De Vesci Gardens. This is a beautiful family home boasting the wonderful proportions that
are expected from the Victorian period. The spacious, bright and airy practical living accommodation extends
to approximately 346 sq.m. (3,725 sq.ft.) in the main house, has been superbly maintained throughout and is
very well-presented maintaining the period embellishments and classic features of this renowned era .

To the rear of the property and accessed off of a private gated lane is a stunning mews residence that extends
to approximately 104 sq.m. (1,120 sq.ft.) and is also presented in excellent decorative order. There is parking
available for both properties.

The garden to the rear is set out as a courtyard and comprises a large suntrap patio area, ideal for al fresco
dining, which is attractively bordered by high granite walls giving it an immense sense of privacy.

The park opposite known as De Vesci Gardens is privately owned and maintained by the residents of De Vesci Terrace and Sloperton. Each resident has their own key. It is a really wonderful safe and secure facility to enjoy on the doorstop with its sheltered bowers and walks and a children’s play area. The Gardens also accommodate De Vesci Lawn Tennis Club.

De Vesci Terrace is situated in the heart of Monkstown within walking distance of the village centre and Dun
Laoghaire, both with a wide range of specialized shops and shopping centres, outstanding restaurants and
hostelries together with the library, town hall, the Pavilion and a selection of excellent schools, churches and the twelve screen IMC Cineplex.

The Salthill/Monkstown DART station and city bus service are close by. There is a wide range of recreational
and leisure facilities in the immediate area such as tennis, rugby, hockey and football clubs, the leisure centre with swimming pool at Monkstown Avenue, a wide range of golf clubs and the hugely popular marine and
sailing activities at Dun Laoghaire harbour with its extensive marina.
