Sure to prick up any discerning buyers’ ears, this completely restored five-bed home is now on sale for €2,295,000. With original features like sash windows, ceiling cornices and central roses in place, the hallway is just a taster of the home’s integrity. Add original floorboards and Victorian radiators and it quickly becomes clear that this restoration wasn’t done by halves.

From here, a staircase leads both upstairs and downstairs, while doors off the hallway lead to the lounge, dining room and kitchen.

The lounge is a bright and airy space with plenty of cosy reading nooks and sash windows that offer views of the impressive back garden. Cast iron fireplaces feature in many of the rooms, as do original floorboards, period radiators, original cornices and roses.

From the kitchen, the large dining room with painted architrave, a sash window and more garden views creates a tranquil space. Built-in alcove storage with marble tops and original floorboards, along with white panelling keeps the space fresh and inviting.

A sitting room is incorporated into the kitchen and has a large bay window with three sashes, that looks out to the front of the property. With features similar to the dining room, the houses embraces a great flow.

A bespoke Christoff kitchen with beautiful marble work surfaces, a large island unit and space for several stools makes for a less formal, more social place to eat.

Above the kitchen, the master bedroom also has three large sash windows in a bay shape. A fitted window seat with storage underneath has a double function. Here a marble fireplace differs to the cast iron ones that are dotted throughout the rest of the house. Built-in wardrobes and built-in alcove storage with original floorboards and half painted and panelled walls complete the look.

The west facing garden is an excellent feature of this impressive home with its various stone patio seating areas, raised flower beds and a top notch barbecue area. Walk further down and you’ll discover an adventure playground for children with a play house and pirate ship, as well as a miniature Giants Causeway and storage shed.

York Road divides Monkstown to the west and Dun Laoghaire to the east, so they’re both easily reached. And seeing as they’re both served by the DART, trips to the city centre are a breeze. However, with a great choice of cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as shops and entertainment on this home’s doorstep, it’s a wonder why this property’s new owner would need to travel far at all.
