Lauded as one of the most salubrious addresses in the area, Royal Terrace is an incredibly picturesque square comprising handsome Victorian homes, in the main, looking onto a central four-acre Parkland. Positioned on the fringes of Dun Laoghaire it benefits from an immense degree of convenience while enjoying a lovely sense of tranquil seclusion.
No. 12 resides on the western side of the square, positioned to take in direct views of the square. Beyond the bay windowed facade lies light filled, elegantly proportioned and tastefully upgraded accommodation, which has retained an abundance of its original features, that have been successfully married with all of todays modern conveniences.
On the ground floor, an entrance lobby leads through to what is now an open plan kitchen/living/dining that runs from the front to the back of the property - a superb heart of the house. The living area is partly partitioned by curved archways and the area has a fireplace and doors to the garden. To the rear of this level there is a utility room and a bathroom with both Jacuzzi bath and sauna. The under stairs area has been fitted with extensive storage.

As you access it from the ground floor you come upon a serenely tranquil space with a seating area and water feature. Steps lead up to a further patio area which is shaded in a canopy of leaves from various different colourful trees.
