Bergins are honoured to bring to the market this elegant landmark property.
Number 2 Clifton Terrace is a uniquely wide double fronted regency property with uninterrupted views of Dublin Bay.
This beautifully proportioned Monkstown home comes to the market in wonderful condition, with gracious living of over 5300 sq feet, presented over three light filled storeys.
Clifton Terrace was built in circa 1830 and number 2 was extensively refurbished in the early 2000€TM.
Since then, its most recent owners have taken great care to decorate and present this family home as sensitively and comfortably as possible, maintaining its condition and presentation beautifully.
The main entrance to number 2 opens from an elegant portico at the top of wide granite steps straight in to a wide and generous hall with decorative cornicing and restored floorboards. To left and right are the formal reception rooms and to the rear, access to the South West facing rear garden.
To the left of the hall is a spectacular pair of interconnecting formal reception rooms, with views through two sash windows over Seapoint and Dublin Bay and, to the rear to the sunny terrace and garden. A pair of french doors also lead from this room directly to the terrace. These two comfortable and well used reception rooms are beautifully presented with decorative cornice work and elegant mantlepieces surrounding two open fires. Double doors allow these rooms to be separated as needed.
On the far side of the hall is the elegant formal dining room, with front to back arrangement, and two windows overlooking Dublin Bay. To the rear of this room is a feature external bay wall, which continues through the house, from garden level below, to the master suite above. This room has been decorated in luxurious dark blue tones which compliment the feature white marble mantlepiece and cornice work above.
The main hall continues to the rear of this floor and opens directly on to an impressive terrace which takes advantage of the perfect south westerly aspect of the garden. Number 2 is not overlooked at all to the rear, and the visible landmarks include the beautiful church at the heart of Monkstown Village. This terrace descends in to the lawned garden with a series of wide steps and the garden is dressed beautifully with mature trees and planted beds.
At garden level, the second entry to number 2 opens into a natural stone tiled hall from the front garden.
This hall is well fitted with custom storage and opens to the right in to welcoming and well appointed family kitchen. With windows to the front and opening through the feature bay wall to a dining room the rear, this functional but elegant space is bright and very well planned with an Aga and range of integrated appliances. A substantial island in the centre of this room provides practical preparation space, as well as being the heart of entertainment at this level of the house.
The dining area to the rear is bright, yet cosy, with its feature roof light above and french doors leading out to a lower terrace. A sandstone fireplace adds warmth to this room for evening entertainment with a gas fire insert.
Completing this side of the garden level is a well fitted utility room, a further bathroom with shower, wc and whb, and a bedroom, currently used as a gym.
The far side of the garden level, leading from the hall is arranged for further family living, or alternatively can be used as a self contained but large apartment. To the front is a home office/study and small bedroom and adjacent to this is a shower room.
To the rear of this side of the house, and beneath the formal reception rooms is a further very large family living space, with sandstone fireplace and open fire and leading beyond again to a fully fitted kitchen and further bedroom and bathroom. French doors lead on to a sunny terrace from both the kitchen area and the rear bedroom, with another overhead roof light adding valuable natural sun to this well used room.
At first floor, there are four very generous double bedrooms. Two of these are to the front and over the formal reception room, each with beautiful views across Dublin Bay. To the rear a further larger bedroom with ensuite bathroom has views across Monkstown Village and the sunny garden below.
An elegant bathroom completes this side of the house with roll top bath and feature window over the rear garden.
Finally, the master bedroom completes the first floor arrangement. A truly stunning bedroom with views out to sea through two unadorned and simply shuttered sash windows, and again to the rear with the feature bay wall. This serene and beautifully calm master suite is complimented by a walk in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom.
Number 2 Clifton Terrace is within three short minutes walk of Monkstown Village and a literal stone€TM throw from Seapoint Dart Station. Restaurants, bars, shops and services are just moments away.
