This renovated Dun Laoghaire home is on the market for €2.45 million
07th Dec 2020
This period home has a total of five bedrooms, as well as carefully landscaped gardens front and back.
Situated just a short stroll from Dun Laoghaire’s popular East Pier, 21 Cambridge Terrace is a gorgeous redbrick family home that sits over four levels.
You enter the home into a large, airy hallway, with beautiful period details such as cornicing, original wooden floors, and ceiling roses. The current owners have highlighted these details by leaving them white, and painting the walls in a contrasting blue. This cool palette is continued throughout the house.
The kitchen is situated in one of the best rooms in the house. With a large bay window to the front, complete with window seat and wonderfully high ceilings with decorative cornicing, it combines the house’s period features with a curved, contemporary island that doubles as a breakfast bar.
This space leads through to the dining area, which is large enough to fit a generously-sized table, perfect for a crowd.
On the garden level, there are more reception rooms, including a play room, living room, and office, as well as a utility room. The living room leads out to a patio in the back garden, so it has a great connection to the outdoors.
Upstairs, there are five bedrooms split over the first and second floors. There are two large bedrooms on the first floor, including the main bedroom which sits at the front of the house, and has a large bay window. There is also a family bathroom on this level. The remaining three bedrooms are on the next level, as well as a shower room.
The gardens are a real feature of this property, as they have been carefully landscaped front and back. There is a stone path through the front garden, surrounded by box hedging and shrubs.
There is a large patio in the back garden with a pergola and plenty of space for outdoor seating, complete with its own built-in barbecue and pizza oven. A lawn area is bordered by mature flowerbeds, while the end of the garden is set up as an adventure playground for children, with a wooden play house and pirate ship, as well as a mini Giants Causeway.
As well as being close to the sea, this home is less than five minutes’ walk to Dun Laoghaire DART station, making it easy to access the city centre, while the shops and restaurants of Dun Laoghaire are nearby. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this house.
