Full Description

An exceptionally attractive mid-terrace double fronted Victorian period residence of style and character situated on the sunny western side of this highly regarded road located in prestigious Sandycove that is just a stroll from Glasthule, Sandycove, Dun Laoghaire and the seafront, a host of excellent schools and Glenageary DART Station on Station Road.

This deceptively spacious Victorian period villa that extends to approximately 178sq.m (1,915sq.ft), 28 Lower Albert Road comes to the market presented in turnkey walk into condition having undergone a complete refurbishment and renovation under the design and guidance of MacDonald Vagge Architects. They have created a wonderfully bright and airy open plan living space throughout the downstairs that benefits greatly from the natural light that the west facing rear garden offers.

The period façade that is approached via a sliding electric gate offers off street parking for two cars comfortably. Behind the hall door the contemporary design and modern fit out can be clearly seen through the solid walnut floors, double glazed sliding sash windows and the SieMatic kitchen whilst the entire property has been rewired and re-plumbed to present day standards. The SieMatic kitchen positioned below the atrium skylight gives a wonderful feeling of space and has all modern conveniences within easy reach. This leads to the dining area and ultimately to a sunroom/family/TV area looking out over the private landscaped garden through the wall of glass. An excellent formal drawing room with high vaulted ceiling and cast iron open fireplace leads to an office area with built in box shelving and storage and two bedrooms and a family bathroom conclude the accommodation at this level. Upstairs there is a bright landing with superb storage overlooking the atrium kitchen and this accesses the master bedroom with excellent wardrobe provision that enjoys a balcony off that overlooks the sunny rear garden. A further bedroom concludes the accommodation at this level.

The rear garden is a particular feature of the property as it is landscaped in two tiers laid out in suntrap natural stone patio ideal for al fresco dining that has steps leading up to an elevated lawned area bordered by mature planting, trees and shrubbery. There are high cut granite stone walls and a detached Barna shed to the rear for storage. Double folding timber vehicular gates open out on to the lane to the rear of the property.

28 Lower Albert Road is surrounded by a large number of superb facilities and amenities including many excellent primary and secondary schools, local and specialized shops at Glasthule, Sandycove and Dalkey along with nearby Dun Laoghaire with its more extensive shopping, churches, cafes, bars, restaurants and the IMC and the Pavilion Theatre are also within easy reach. There is a wide selection of recreational and leisure activities together with Scotsman’s Bay, the seafront and the Forty Foot within a stones’ throw.
