This is a highly convenient quiet location in the heart of Monkstown positioned just beside Monkstown Crescent and Grosvenor Terrace and only a short walk from the bustling village with its wide selection of local and boutique shops, cafes, pubs and some of the finest restaurants in South County Dublin. There is more extensive shopping available at the centres in Dun Laoghaire and Blackrock both just a short commute away. Primary and secondary schools are in abundance as are the many recreational and leisure activities and sporting venues such as football, GAA, rugby, hockey and tennis at both De Vesci and Monkstown tennis clubs. The four yacht clubs and extensive marina at Dun Laoghaire Harbour with its two piers will be of major interest to the walkers and marine and sailing enthusiasts.

Monkstown Village has every conceivable facility and amenity on the doorstep. Being within metres of the seafront there are also lovely tranquil scenic walks within the immediate area. This is a highly desirable and very convenient location that is ideal for easy family living. A regular bus service and the DART station at Salthill/Monkstown, a few minutes’ walk away make commuting to schools and the city centre exceptionally easy.

This superbly appointed end of terrace Victorian period property has had a huge amount of refurbishment and renovation under architect’s supervision carried out on it over the years and is presented to a very high standard throughout. The accommodation in general is exceptionally bright and the generous proportions and period features are evident throughout the entire property. The reception hall is of an excellent size and the two interconnecting reception rooms at this level offer more depth than expected. Together with the five bedrooms, two bathrooms and en suite, the spacious kitchen/breakfast room and large playroom/family room make this a property that will attract interest from all professionals or families looking to aspire to such a property in the highly regarded much sought after Monkstown location.

The gardens to the side of the property are railed and planted with silver birches to enhance privacy. A sliding timber electric gate opens into gravelled off street parking to the rear of the property whilst the remainder is laid out in lawn and patio, bordered by mature shrubbery and granite walls and is a private suntrap. The courtyard to the front off the kitchen has maturing silver birch trees and is another suntrap, ideal for a quiet coffee.
