This 6-bed Victorian Dun Laoghaire home is on the market for €1.495 million

With generously-sized rooms, a large garden and a separate basement apartment, this home is ideal for a buyer looking for plenty of space.

Located on a quiet street just ten minutes’ walk from the centre of Dun Laoghaire, 2 Eglinton Park is a grand Victorian home that still has many of its original features. 

The entrance hall gains natural light from the fan light above the front door, while this space also features original wooden flooring and decorative ceiling coving. To the right of the hall is the long, double-aspect drawing room. It has sash windows with working shutters, while its high ceiling adds to the sense of space and light.

To the other side of the hall is the dining room, which sits at the front of the house. It has an open fireplace and sash window, while to the back of the house is the kitchen and breakfast room, with a utility room to the rear.

On the garden level is a separate apartment that could be used for inter-generational living, or be incorporated into the rest of the house to create even more living space for a family. This floor has a well-sized kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom, and although the décor is simpler than the rest of the house, they seem in good condition.

The first floor has a further four bedrooms, all of which feature sash windows. The main bedroom is particularly large, looking out to both the front and back of the house, and also has a fireplace. 

Outside, the long back garden has original granite walls. It has a large lawn area and some large trees.
