This two storey property has been dramatically and extensively remodelled in 2019 to an exacting standard now presenting as a 240sq m superior four bedroom Victorian house. The homeowner has clearly worked hand in hand with their Architect, Courtney McDonnell, to present a unique, elegant and bespoke property which also works so well as a beautifully functioning family home with enviable energy efficiency at a B3 rating. The location of number 3 in Hastings Terrace, with its unimpeded views of the sea has allowed these to be visible at both levels, with sweeping near 180 degree aspect from the newly constructed living area at first floor. At ground floor an elegant and generous hall provides access to the ground floor bedrooms and leading to the garden to the rear. The cleverly designed floor to ceiling glass doors provide a view of Dublin Bay and Howth Head as you enter this bright and airy hall. Throughout this beautifully designed property are examples of craftsmanship from some of Irelands finest companies. The newly relocated staircase has been elegantly created by McNally Joinery. The dramatic vaulted ceiling kitchen in the centre of the first floor has been expertly crafted by Newcastle Design creating a focal point to the formal and informal living areas at this level. In all areas of this unique property the interior designer home owner has made use of the most elegant wall coverings and bespoke paints, creating moods for each of the relevant spaces and making the most of the spectacular light which enters this house throughout the day. Behind the scenes all steps have been taken to ensure that this large property is efficient in energy consumption and also up to date with CAT 6 cabling, integrated entertainment systems and clever lighting. The property has been designed with future development in mind to take advantage of further extensive views from a third floor, with additional bedrooms and roof terrace, subject to PP. Number 3 Hastings Terrace is an elegant Victorian double fronted home, just moments from the chic and bustling centre of Glasthule Village. Sandycove beach and the Forty Foot are within a five minute walk, and access to public transport is excellent with Sandycove Dart station nearby. Recent changes by Dun Laoghaire County Council extending the cycleway out from Booterstown to Sandycove provide a safe and easy route along the coast for those who wish to abandon cars. The Glasthule, Sandycove, Dalkey area provides a range of local schools, both public and private, with St Patricks National School, Castle Park, Dalkey School Project and the Harold School all providing primary education within walking distance. Loreto Abbey, CBC Monkstown and St Andrews, at secondary level are also easily accessible. Glasthule and Dalkey villages are both well served with a range of excellent restaurants, bars and shops, with seafood and fresh produce to the fore in both.
