Looking for a house for sale in Skerries? You won’t get better a location than this Victorian end of terrace sitting right on the seafront.

You can’t get any closer to the sea than this beautiful two-story-over-garden-level Victorian home in Skerries, which backs directly onto the beachfront walk on the Lower South Strand. It’s currently for sale for €975,000 with Sherry Fitzgerald.

Formerly the old rectory, it’s now a light and bright family home, ready to move into with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The front garden is gravelled with neat, curved bedding and bound by original wrought iron railings.

Up the stone steps of this end of terrace home brings you to the entrance level, where a wide hallway and grand staircase greets you. Off this is a large drawing room to the front and a dining room to the rear, with a spacious coat room in the return. These rooms boost many original features including high ceilings, ornate cornicing and large fireplaces.

Upstairs are four bedrooms, two with sea views and a large family bathroom. From here there are the most spectacular views of Shenick Island, Church Island and Rockabill Island.

The garden level, which has its own entrance at the base of the imposing stone steps at the front, is where the bulk of the family living happens with a large family room and an oak fitted kitchen that looks onto the garden. A utility room can be found in the return. 

The back garden is split into two levels. To the side is a wide, south-facing garden that has a newly laid lawn and patio area to lounge in. The inner garden is paved and has your own private pedestrian access directly onto the beach. 

Who doesn’t dream of walking to the end of their garden and onto the beach?
