If you love walks on the beach and have a few million to spare, this impressive Monkstown home could be right up your street. 


As IMAGE HQ is based in Dun Laoghaire, we can attest to the benefits of being close to the sea. Whether you use it as an opportunity to go for a relaxing walk or just gaze out the window at it from time to time, its calming properties are certain.

Just down the road in Monkstown, 8 & 8A Seafield Avenue is up for sale. This semi-detached three storey Victorian period residence that includes a two-bedroom cottage is in a prime seaside location, within a short walking distance from the Monstown and Salthill DART station.

The entrance hall with parquet floors, ceiling coving, centre roses and arched picture windows provides a flavour of the character of the house, which has many of its period features intact. Off the hall, a large reception room with high ceilings and picture window to the rear garden is currently laid out as a bedsit, but could easily be transformed into a living room.

Monkstown property

On the first floor level, there are two rooms currently used as a living room and dining room. With 11ft high ceilings, ceiling coving and original marble fireplaces, they boast plenty of Victorian features. A kitchen and breakfast room with utility space are also on this floor.

On the second floor are three large bright double bedrooms, although this current layout could easily be reconfigured to its new owners’ needs.

However, this property also has an added bonus of a separate two-bedroom cottage to the side, perfect for multi-generational families wanting to live together yet maintain some independence, or for those who would like extra income by renting it out.

Monkstown property

The cottage features an open plan kitchen, newly refurbished bathroom, large double bedroom and attic room currently used as a bedroom and study and a large living room. Double doors from the living room lead to the rear garden where there is a private patio area.

To the front of the property there is off street parking for multiple cars, and a private, west facing garden is at the back.
