Standing proud amongst this imposing terrace of handsome Victorian residences and peering over Willowbank Park, Vesey Place embodies all the grace, charm and style of the era from which it reigns. No.14 offers the discerning purchaser an enviable opportunity to acquire a substantial period residence with many of its original features remaining, including original ceiling coving, centre roses, fireplaces, sliding sash windows, working window shutters and original red deal flooring.
Named after William Vesey and built in the 1860s, the location is highly desirable, within a five-minute walk of both fashionable Monkstown Village and the centre of Dun Laoghaire. Once part of the sleepy rural backdrop of the city, the popularity of the area soared in the mid-1800s when wealthy merchants set up homes close to the ancient village of Kingstown, which went on to become an important centre for both business and culture.
Facing leafy parkland, and with views out over Dublin Bay towards Howth from the upper floors, the current owners have been mindful caretakers of this residence.
The luxurious proportions of No. 14 are immediately apparent as you enter the property, where glass panels flank the front door and fill the space with natural light and the 12ft high ceilings are decorated with an original ceiling rose and ornate coving. On this level there is a large kitchen / dining room. On the return there is access to the garden and on the ground floor there are two bedrooms a very large store room, bathroom and utility area. On the upper floors, there is a large kitchen/ dining room with a lovely window over looking the rear and a drawing room which spans the entire width of the house with large light bearing windows allowing natural light to flood the generously appointed room with a stunning feature fireplace. On the way to the top floor, there is a bathroom on the return and there are three bedrooms at the top level along with a storage closet which incorporates access to the attic.
To the front of the property, a path bordered by mature plants and shrubs and trees, including peonies and hydrangeas, a Forsythia bush and an Olive tree, leads to a flight of granite steps up to the front door. To the rear there is a low-maintenance south-facing patio garden (77ft) packed with an extensive array of flowering plants, shrubs and trees. It has some beautiful mature specimens and fruit trees, including apple, pear, plum and damson trees. To the rear of the garden there is a greenhouse and a raised flower bed.
The location needs little introduction. A wealth of amenities, both social and essential, lies within a short walk. There is ease of access to the beach at Seapoint, for summer swims in the sea, and to walks along the seafront and the East and West piers. Monkstown Crescent offers an excellent choice of specialty food shops, as well as fashionable clothes and interiors shops, bars and restaurants, including Avoca, Caf du Journal and Cinnamon.
