Description

  • Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
  • Overall Floor Area: 214 m²
As its name suggests, The Haven enjoys a tranquil setting enhanced by secluded gardens and tucked away on a quiet residential road within one of Greystones most mature and sought-after neighbourhoods. Yet it is also in a highly convenient location, thanks to its position just two minutes' walk from the thriving heart of the town with its wide-ranging choice of shops, pubs, restaurants and artisan cafes that makes Greystones such a popular lifestyle choice. Dating back to the late Victorian era when it was originally built for a prosperous local solicitor, The Haven retains a host of original features, many restored to pristine condition by the current owners. These include cornicing, ceiling roses and ornate polished timber fireplaces in two of the downstairs reception rooms, cast iron fireplaces in four of the five bedrooms and a stained glass window on the upstairs landing all in showroom condition. Period woodwork has been restored and maintained to an exceptional standard, with all rooms retaining their original pitch pine floorboards and doors. The doors are in immaculate condition, each having been individually removed from the house and stripped back to the original timber by a specialist restorer and then reinstalled. Similar work brought the entrance hall staircase back to its former glory, with the handrail and each individual baluster taken away and painstakingly restored before being reassembled. Other period features include original pitch pine sash windows, high ceilings and bay windows that are all so characteristic of the Victorian area. Spanning almost 215 square metres (not including its two outbuildings), accommodation is extensive with well-proportioned, high ceilinged rooms creating a wonderful sense of light and space. On the ground floor, these comprise an entrance hall, interior hall, three receptions, shower room and open-plan kitchen/family/dining room. Upstairs is an exceptionally spacious landing, five bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate WC. Outside, extensive gardens populated by mature plants, shrubs and trees provide peaceful and secluded surroundings. While this a property that would benefit from modernisation, any investment made in such works will be richly rewarded with an outstanding contemporary home with oodles of period character in a convenient location a short stroll from the centre of Greystones.

The property also lies within easy reach of a wide variety of sports and leisure facilities including soccer, rugby, GAA, tennis, sailing, Greystones Marina and the Shoreline Leisure Centre. Greystones offers an fine choice of supermarkets, shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, while families will appreciate the town€TM excellent selection of schools. Commuting to Dublin could not be easier thanks to the close proximity of the N11 and Greystones DART station. Local bus routes include the 184 and the 84 (both with stops just three minutes' walk away), while the Aircoach from the town's main street provides a direct link to Dublin Airport. Greystones has twice been the winner of a LivCom Award (the International Awards for Liveable Communities), first in 2008 and most recently in December 2021 when it was one of five towns from around the globe to be shortlisted for this prestigious accolade.
