Looking out to the Martello Tower at Seapoint, this beautiful Victorian home is in a particularly enviable spot.

Built in 1840, 21 Trafalgar Terrace is a spectacular period home that still boasts many of its original features. Set just off Seapoint Avenue, it has stunning views of Dublin Bay, across to Howth.

Set over three storeys, plus a basement level, this house covers a huge 5,500 square feet. While the current owners have five bedrooms, the ample number of reception rooms in the house means that some of these could also be used as bedrooms if required.

When entering the house, the original Victorian tiled floor is the first eye-catching detail you see, as well as the stained glass in the porch, and decorative cornicing. On the entrance level, there is a study with cherry wood bookshelves and sitting room with marble fireplace, with a laundry room to the rear.

On the first floor, a grand drawing room and dining room sit in prime position, as is traditional in homes of this period, while a bedroom is to the back of the house. The basement level is home to the kitchen and breakfast room, which features a gas-fired Aga, black marble worktops and a solid walnut floor.

Also on this level is a pantry and wine cellar, as well as a room currently used as a gym, but would suit a large variety of uses, including a playroom, office, or additional bedroom.

On the second and third storeys are four bedrooms. The main bedroom occupies the width of the front of the house, and has wonderful views out to sea. Several of the bedrooms feature built-in wardrobes, and a large family bathroom features a walk-in shower with rain shower head, and bath tub with claw feet legs.

Outside, there is a paved area to the rear with a pond and fountain, while mature trees provide privacy. It is just a few minutes walk to enjoy a swim or a walk at Seapoint. Click through our gallery above for a full tour of this home.
