Full Description

An exceptionally attractive double-fronted Victorian period residence situated in this highly sought after area of South County Dublin, this mid-terrace house offers bright, generously-proportioned accommodation spread over two levels. This beautiful house benefits from many period features, including original sash windows with fully functioning shutters, high ceilings, ceiling coving, decorative roses, timber floors and stunning fireplaces.

3, Sandycove Avenue East offers fantastic entertaining space with three spacious reception rooms and a conservatory on either side of the hallway. Elsewhere on the ground floor is a kitchen, separate breakfast room with a slate and concrete feature fireplace, a utility space and wet room. Upstairs there are 3 / 4 light and airy bedrooms, a family-sized bathroom and w.c. and a large hot press.

The house extends to approximately 232.3sq.m (2,500sq.ft) and has a secluded mature garden with pedestrian access onto a private lane to the rear. On the market for the first time in 40 years, the property has been extremely well maintained, but would now benefit from some updating. The flexilble layout will permit the new owner to adapt the accommodation according to their taste and requirements.

The location of this quality family residence will be of major interest to anyone trying to get a foothold in this highly-regarded coastal Sandycove location, being a short stroll from the renowned bathing location at the Forty Foot and from the sea front in Sandycove. Sandycove Lawn Tennis Club is close by, as is the Cuala GAA and Dalkey United sports ground on Hyde Road. The area also benefits from an excellent selection of primary and secondary schools including Castle Park, Harold National School and Loreto Abbey Dalkey.

Dalkey Town and Glasthule Village with their excellent selection of specialist food shops, boutiques and restaurants are in easy walking distance, while the People’s Park, Dun Laoghaire is a bit further afield. The bus and DART station service the city centre and more schools towards the city centre. The Aircoach runs to and from the airport every hour and is accessed from Hyde Road. There are popular scenic walks over Killiney and Dalkey Hills and along the seafront. The four yacht clubs and extensive marina at Dun Laoghaire Harbour will be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiast.
