About our home

Open to swaps for 2022 and 2023... OPEN TO OFFERS!

Our home is a stunning redbrick home of 5,500 square feet, originally built in the 1850's overlooking a beautifully conserved regency garden square (circa 2 acres). The home was fully renovated - maintaining the period charm ,combining modern design and homely comforts.

At ground floor level there is an impressive entrance hall leading into two interconnecting formal reception rooms both containing many period features and original fireplaces. There is also a guest bathroom and a home office/study on this level. The study opens onto the back garden.

The two floors above have four bedrooms, 2 doubles, 1 twin and 1 single, with ensuite bathrooms and a large family bathroom. The master bedroom has stunning views over Belgrave Square.

The basement level is the leisure zone, with a large wall mounted flat screen TV, Xbox, Netflix , Apple TV and DVD player and contemporary style fireplace. Children's Playroom with TV also in the Basement. The kitchen is at basement level, Aga and gas ovens for cooking and entertaining in this enormous open plan space.

Large glass doors open to a sheltered garden with water feature at the rear of the house, which is fully equipped for outdoor dinning, including BBQ.
Please note that as the house is three stories over basement level it is NOT suitable for those with mobility issues.

Our house is located within a 5 minute walk of the quaint village of Monkstown, where you find a range of great pubs and restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The village also provides lots of opportunities for gourmet shopping for local breads, cheese and wine.

The house is only a 2 minute walk to the sea, where you can enjoy beautiful coastal walks, swimming, boating, sailing, cycling and of course there are no less than 10 golf courses within 15 miles of the house.

You will have a short 5 minute walk to the local train station from where you can explore the beautiful coastline, taking in atmospheric Irish villages along the way, such as Dalkey and Greystones.

There is also a short trip of only 13 minutes to get to the heart of Dublin city. Here you can experience all this vibrant city has to offer, with numerous museums, art galleries and well known attractions such as Trinity College, Book of Kells, Guinness Hop Store and the Phoenix Park. If shopping is high on your 'must do' list then a treat awaits with numerous uniquely Irish boutiques where you will find interesting and unusual finds from our home grown fashion designers.

Dublin is the hub for the national transport system and within a short space of time, using perhaps the train service, you can spread your wings further and experience a lot more of what Ireland has to offer. Wicklow, otherwise known as, 'The Garden of Ireland', is 30 minutes away by train, where there is a range of historic, leisure, adventure and sporting experiences.
