A classic double fronted, perfectly symmetrical, Victorian seaside residence just moments walk from the water s edge. Situated on a picture-perfect street, where each house is more handsome than the last, with the idyllic backdrop of Scottsman s Bay at the bottom of the road, No. 4 Mellifont Avenue is an incredibly charming home that is sure to appeal to a wide variety of buyers.
Set back from the road and bordered by tall evergreen hedging, which afford the occupants great privacy from the street, this home has instant appeal, having retained many of its original, including ceiling roses, coving and wood floors which complement the graciously appointed accommodation. The entrance hall, with original fan light over the front door, leads through to elegant interconnecting reception rooms and on the other side of the hall, the dining room is open through to the kitchen, which in turn leads out to the garden. To the rear of this level, there is a utility room and shower room. On the return there is a large family bathroom with feature free standing, role top claw on ball foot bath and on the first floor there are five bright and airy bedrooms. To the rear of the house there is a west facing garden with patio dining area and a raised lawn bordered by a profusion of plants and shrubs.
The location of this property is superb, a short stroll from the immediate and local conveniences, the People s Park, the seafront, the Forty Foot and harbour with its two piers. Leisure facilities are also in abundance in the locality with many local sporting clubs and the coastline at the bottom of the road for enjoying leisurely strolls, while the four yacht clubs in Dun Laoghaire will be of great interest to budding and experienced sailors.
The property also enjoys excellent transport links including popular bus routes, the Glasthule/ Sandycove and Dun Laoghaire DART stations and the Aircoach. The property also benefits from easy access to highly regarded schools such as Castle Park, CBC Monkstown, Blackrock College, Loreto Dalkey, Rathdown and St Nicholas Montessori.
