Description

  • Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty

There s an air of something a little special as you come upon Knapton Road, which connects to The Slopes and then to Monkstown village. Knapton Terrace, two rows of tall, majestic Victorian residences, stand proud along one side and substantial detached and semi-detached homes line the other side. A tranquil escape just 7 miles south of Dublin City Centre, the location enjoys the best of both worlds, with peaceful surrounds and swift access on foot to the bustling coastal suburbs of Monkstown and Dun Laoghaire, boasting a selection of award winning restaurants, specialist delicatessens and popular boutiques. A handsome residence, gently framed by a classically landscaped railed front garden, you are immediately drawn in to explore the gracious proportions and elegance of this beautiful bay windowed residence. The current owners have been meticulous caretakers of their home, which is rich in original features that seamlessly blend with the timeless modern upgrades that have been carried out. At the garden level, the entrance lobby opens into a large kitchen / dining room, which, by incorporating the space in the hall, has created a substantial space that spans the entire width of the house. Cream and stone blue solid wood, in frame, Shaker Style units are in abundance with granite work tops, integrated appliances and a cream Aga. To the rear of the kitchen is a living room which connects to the garden via double doors and there is a wood burning stove. There is storage and a guest w.c. under the stairs and a large study on the return. On the first return there is a modern shower room and double bedroom which overlooks the rear garden. On the hall floor, the formal entrance hall sets the tone of what to expect. The plaster work is intricately moulded, drawing your eye up to the beautifully tall ceilings. The dining room to the front has a feature marble fireplace and large bay window. Where many would have a further reception area at this level, there is a very large bedroom. On the next return there is a further double bedroom and a bathroom. At the top of the house is the principal bedroom and a breath-taking drawing room which spans the entire width of the house with a ceiling that is heavily accented with intricate cornicing and a bay window that allows the south facing light to drench the room. The rear garden stretches an impressive 145ft laid mainly in lawn and bordered by mature gravelled beds, granite walls and stepping stones to an outdoor dining area and access to the rear of the garden. At the end of the garden there is a large double garage with an electric roller shutter leading out to Knapton Lane, allowing for off street parking and rear access if you are carrying out works to the house. This quiet lane is designated for mews development in the current local authority development plan and services a number of existing mews dwellings. This superb location needs little introduction. A wealth of amenities, both social and essential, lie within a short walk. There is ease of access to the beach at Seapoint, for all year swims in the sea, and to walks along the seafront and the East and West piers. Monkstown Crescent, a short walk from the property, offers an excellent choice of specialty food shops, as well as fashionable clothes and interiors shops, bars and restaurants, including Avoca, Bresson, That s Amore, Caf du Journal and Cinnamon. Nearby Dun Laoghaire, meanwhile, has supermarkets, banks, a theatre and a multi-screen cinema, plus four sailing clubs with active junior programmes. There are also two tennis clubs within a few minutes walk of the property. There is an excellent choice of schools close by and along the nearby DART line including CBC Monkstown, Blackrock College, St Andrew s, Loreto Dalkey and Holy Child Killiney, to name but a few. Transport links include excellent bus routes along with the DART and the Aircoach provides direct access to Dublin Airport. There is a neat, railed garden to the front of the house with formal topiary hedging. The rear garden stretches an impressive 145ft laid mainly in lawn and bordered by mature gravelled beds, granite walls and stepping-stones to an outdoor dining area and access to the rear of the garden. At the end of the garden there is a large double garage with an electric roller shutter leading out to Knapton Lane, allowing for off street parking and rear access if carrying out works to the house.
