No. 1 Desmond Cottages is a wonderfully appointed end of terrace period artisan cottage dating from the early 1900's that is presented in excellent decorative order throughout. The present owners have sympathetically upgraded the house and new double glazed sash windows were fitted to the front very recently. It oozes charm and character, and beyond its traditional façade the house generously extends to approximately 114sq.m (1,227sq.ft) and offers light filled accommodation with stunning sea views to the rear. It now offers the discerning purchaser a stylish home on this elevated exclusive road directly opposite Dalkey Quarry within close proximity of Dalkey Village, one of South County Dublin's most popular and sought after coastal suburbs. A front door with feature-stained glass panels opens into a large light filled sitting room with a cosy open fireplace. This room offers views across to Dalkey Quarry and there is good understairs storage. Off the sitting room there is a well-proportioned double bedroom with views out to the Quarry as well. Off the sitting room there is a large kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of Shaker style units painted in a sage green colour and to the opposite side of the hall there is a family bath/shower room. To the rear of the house there are two further semi open plan reception rooms with a feature open fireplace and a Piet Mondrian stained glass window. A squared archway opens through to a large dining room with access out from here to a shared side passageway. There are stunning sea views out to Howth from these two rooms. Upstairs at first floor level is a large light-filled space divided into two rooms. One of these rooms is currently the master bedroom with a built-in wardrobe space. The adjoining room is presented as a single bedroom / office. Both are tastefully decorated with wainscoting and boast stunning sea views from the dormer windows together with ample eaves storage space. To the rear of the property there is a large private patio area, the perfect spot for al fresco dining and barbecues where you can really take in the beautiful views. There is also access here into a large store/utility which is plumbed for a washing machine. This wonderful cottage offers generously proportioned light filled accommodation with excellent scope to extend or reconfigure subject to the necessary planning permission. To the front of the property there is on street car parking. The position of this quality home will be of major interest to those trying to get a foothold in the highly regarded and much sought after Dalkey location. This coastal town offers a wide range of local and specialist shops, cafes, delicatessens, excellent pubs and some of the finest restaurants in South County Dublin. The surrounding area is well served by an excellent selection of primary and secondary schools including Loreto Abbey Dalkey, Harold Boys, Castle Park, Holy Child, Rathdown and the Harold National School. Dalkey DART Station is close by, and this services the city centre as well as many boys' schools with regular ease. Dalkey also caters for many recreational and leisure facilities with Cuala GAA and Dalkey United situated close by as well as golf, tennis and hockey clubs. There are also many fitness centres and the tranquil scenic walks over Killiney and Dalkey hills and along the seafront are particularly popular - the entrance to Dalkey Hill is less than 100m from front door of the house. Dun Laoghaire Harbour with its two piers and four yacht clubs along with the extensive marina will be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiasts.
