Part of a terrace of four Victorian villas built in the 1870s, No 7 Monkstown Road is an elegant — if compact at 115 sq m — three-bedroom home with an equally well-presented outside space.

Set behind an electronic sliding gate, the mainly gravelled front garden offers plenty of off-street parking and is bordered by shrubbery. Mature bay trees are on either side of the granite steps that lead up to the front door.

Inside, the original layout has been reconfigured, and the upper floor now comprises a small entrance lobby with glazed doors to the living room and the kitchen on either side.

On the left, the living room runs the depth of the house and has fine sash windows at either end. Apart from the calm neutral decor, features include oak flooring, a black marble fireplace, wall panelling and an antique radiator. French doors open to the kitchen, which is home to the stairs and has windows at the front and back. It’s a Chalon-made kitchen with a mix of cream-painted and oak-fronted units and wooden and black marble countertops, along with an Aga and an integrated fridge and dishwasher.

Two double bedrooms, a single, and the family bathroom are downstairs. The doubles are front-facing and have sliding mirrored wardrobes. Concealed behind one of the sliding doors in the main bedroom is an en suite with a full bath. The single bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and access to the understairs space, which is used as a utility room.

The back garden is accessed at the return level between the two floors. It’s surrounded by an old stone wall and is decked with raised beds — and more bay trees — around the sides.

The house has gas-fired central heating and an E1 energy rating.

What we love: The tasteful decor.
Good to know: It’s 500m to Seapoint Dart station and just a bit more to the beach.
