With a mix of period details and modern additions, this home is in excellent condition and has a total of five bedrooms across the two buildings. 


Situated close to Monkstown village and popular swimming spot, Seapoint, 3 De Vesci Terrace is in a much sought-after location. A neo-classical style home, it was built in the 1830s and retains many of its period details. To the rear of the property is a self-contained mews, as well as a private lane way for parking.

Both buildings were extensively refurbished in 2008, including flooring, a new heating system and re-wiring, as well as a new kitchen and bathrooms, so any potential buyer can rest assured that despite its age, the property will be relatively low-maintenance. There is also a three-storey rear extension, adding contemporary spaces to contrast with the traditional original house.

On the ground floor, are three main reception rooms: drawing room, dining room and morning room. Both the dining and drawing room have shuttered Oriel bay windows adding elegance to these spaces, as well as ample light. All three feature marble fireplaces and ceilings over 3 metres in height. Also on this level is a home office, with built-in storage.

The garden level of the home feels modern with a contemporary kitchen and breakfast room, featuring stainless steel worktops, built-in appliances including steam oven, warming drawer, and coffee machine, and double doors that open out to the garden. A long family room provides a space to relax, and a utility room on this level provides a functional space for storage and laundry.

Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms. The main bedroom benefits from a walk-in dressing room and ensuite bathroom with underfloor heating. There is also a family bathroom on this level.

The mews to the rear of the house feels clean and modern, and has an internal garage. Upstairs, an open plan kitchen and living room with vaulted ceiling make for a warm and relaxing space. There is also a bedroom with ensuite.

Both front and rear gardens are fully landscaped and have patio areas on which you can sit and enjoy them. The front garden looks out to De Vesci Gardens: around four acres of private parkland exclusively for the use of residents of the terrace. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this house.
