Property Description:

3 Seaview Terrace is a truly impressive period property located in Dublin' s most exclusive location. Dating back to the 19th Century, this beautiful family home offers a fine example of Georgian architecture with an abundance of ornate period features.

On entering the property, one is met with an elegant entrance hall that encompasses the high ceilings, detailed cornicing and the fine proportions of the rest of the house.

The inner hall leads to a large dual aspect drawing room and dining room that feature original marble fireplaces and impressive views of the south-facing garden. The kitchen is located at the rear of the property and features a beautiful sash window flooding the room with light.

Downstairs, the accommodation comprises of two bedrooms, kitchen, large cellar, laundry room, living room, study and bathroom with independent access to the front and rear of the house.

The entire first floor accommodation offers a most impressive master suite emulating the detail and grand proportions found in the formal drawing rooms. The space includes a large master bedroom that extends into the library, a walk-in wardrobe, bathroom, study and terrace with views of the garden.

Going up to the second floor is a laundry room and three good sized double bedrooms all of which have en suite bathrooms with underfloor heating. Further up the stairs is a sixth bathroom and a hidden staircase providing access to the roof terrace that looks out at Dublin' s coastline.

From the outside, No. 3 Seaview Terrace is set back from the road providing ample space for four or five cars whilst also providing a striking first impression of the house. To the rear, is an elegantly landscaped garden with an array of manicured flowers, shrubbery and a knot garden.

The property is situated in a prestigious residential location, known as the ' Embassy Belt' . It is a truly desirable location given its proximity to the City Centre of just 4 km and being situated between Ballsbridge and Donnybrook village where you will find an array of amenities such as boutique shops, cafes and restaurants. It is also conveniently close to a number of Dublin' s best schools to include St. Michaels, Alexandra College and Muckross Park as well as third level education Trinity College and UCD.

Dublin Airport is also easily accessible being located within 16 km and Dublin Port situated just 6.5 km away.

The architect and original developer of Seaview Terrace was John Semple (1801 - 1882). He is
better known as architect of Monkstown Church of Ireland and the Blackchurch (St. Mary' s Chapel of Ease) at Broadstone.

Seaview Terrace is perhaps best known for its association with Anthony Trollope, renowned Victorian author, who resided there from 1855 - 1859. By sheer coincidence, the Trollope connection continued at No. 3 Seaview Terrace where a Mrs Ternan, a cousin of Anthony Trollope' s sister-in-law, Frances, lived there from about 1905.

These Ternans had a further link through another cousin Nelly Ternan, the mistress of Charles Dickens. Seaview Terrace abounds with literacy connections and traditions.
