This Victorian Glenageary home with modern extension is on the market for €1.395 million

Combining period details with modern additions, this beautiful home perfectly blends the old and new. 

For those who admire the high ceilings, bay windows and generous proportions often found in Victorian residential architecture, 5 Adelaide Terrace is a dream property. Not only does it boast all these features, but it has been carefully cared for over the years, and is in excellent condition.

As well as this, a rear two-storey extension has expanded the space for a family, adding space to the kitchen and dining area, creating a family room, and upstairs adding a fourth double bedroom with en suite.

The entrance hall benefits from beautiful stained glass windows on the inside door and fan light, adding light and colour to the space. A large bay window ensures the main reception room to the front of the house has ample light, while its high ceilings and decorative ceiling cornicing give the space its period character.

Steps lead down to the kitchen and dining space. Shaker-style units are painted in a modern denim blue and a crisp white, while a forest green Aga provides a focal point for the kitchen. There is a dining area with space for a large table and skylight overhead, which leads through to the family room at the rear with doors that open up to the back garden.

Upstairs, the four double bedrooms are well-sized. The master in particular benefits from the bay window at the front of the house and also has its own marble fireplace, making for a very grand room.

The rear garden has a lawn and two patio areas: a private and sheltered space, with beds along each side to add colour. At the end of the garden is a granite-clad garden room. Adorned with a climbing plant, it is particularly picturesque, and fits in well with the style of the house. This space has the potential to be used as a home office, gym, or studio, and would certainly be a bonus for many prospective buyers.

With plenty of excellent local shops and businesses in the village of Glenageary, as well as Dun Laoghaire just minutes away, this house is located in a very desirable area. It is also close to plenty of schools, and the nearest DART is just 4 minutes walk away. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this house.
