€1,850,000 (SOLD)

12 Longford Terrace is a beautiful, Victorian residence of immense character and charm. It occupies a prime position on Longford Terrace with uninterrupted, panoramic sea views. This gracious residence was constructed on a grand scale circa 1840. No. 12 comes to the market offering beautifully proportioned rooms with high ceilings and tall sash windows synonymous with its era. The accommodation of elegant proportions extends to a generous 418sq.m/4,500sq.ft. approximately; it is currently laid out in four self-contained units over four levels. Whilst the property is in need of renovation and modernisation it retains many original features; these include exquisite cornice work, tall sash windows with shutters, panelled doors with architraves, timber floors and a selection of magnificent marble fireplaces. There is on street, residential disc parking to the front of the property. The front garden (L12m x W10m) is bordered by black, wrought iron railings; there is a lawn with a paved path and granite steps leading to the front entrance of the property. There are steps down to the basement accommodation. To the rear there is a private, south facing rear garden (L30m x W10m). This is bounded by walls with extensive lawn and mature foliage. There are steps down to the storage cellars on the lower patio and rear access to the basement accommodation. The location in the heart of Monkstown needs little introduction with its eclectic range of shops, restaurants and boutiques. The DART at Salthill, Seapoint Beach and coastal walks are across the road. The location is equidistant to both Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire with their extensive range of amenities.
