Full Description

An attractive mid-terraced double fronted two storey period family home of charm and character, conveniently positioned on this sought after terrace in the heart of Dun Laoghaire, close to every amenity and facility that has been very well maintained over the years, but now allows the discerning purchaser the opportunity to upgrade and modernise to their own style and flair.

8 Mulgrave Terrace is approached through wrought iron railings offering off street parking for two cars comfortably with the potential to open up the front to provide for more.

On entering the property one is immediately struck by the generous proportions of the reception hall and the symmetrical reception rooms. The overall floor area extends to approximately 244 sq.m (2,626 sq.ft) and the property retains many of the period embellishments of the era including fireplaces, sliding sash windows, high ceilings with ceiling coving and roses.

The rear garden is private and not overlooked and would lend itself nicely to extending into and to construct a modern contemporary kitchen extension subject to the necessary planning permissions. Upstairs off the well-proportioned landing are four excellent double bedrooms, an office/study that would make an excellent en suite. A bathroom completes the accommodation at this level.

The location is of unparalleled convenience being situated on this highly regarded terrace within a short walk of Dun Laoghaire itself with extensive shopping, restaurants, cafes, churches, the Pavilion Theatre, IMC Cinema, the iconic Lexicon Library by the seafront, the East and West piers and the People's Park. Walks abound for children and dog lovers by the sea, along the Metals (dating from 1815) to Killiney Hill and Dalkey along with the secret parks of Royal Terrace, Clarinda Square and the playgrounds at Cualanor and Honeypark. The villages of Monkstown and Glasthule are also within a pleasant stroll. There are excellent primary and secondary schools nearby while the DART, main line trains and many buses serve the town. Recreational and leisure facilities abound including gyms, rugby, football, GAA, hockey and tennis, the four yacht clubs in the marina appealing to sailing enthusiasts while the Forty Foot and Sandycove Beach attract year round swimmers.
