This Victorian Monkstown home on sale for €2.95 million is chic inside and out

Refined style is evident throughout this six-bed home, even extending to the garden where there is a raised terrace, perfect for evening drinks.

Set on 0.3 acres of land close to the sea, 2 Sloperton is a large family home where everything has been finished to a high standard. Built in the Victorian era, it has been modernised throughout, while still retaining many of its period features that give it such elegance. 

Granite steps lead up to the front door, and the beautiful entrance hallway sets the tone for the rest of the house perfectly. It features a marble floor, ceiling coving, a sash window with working shutters and an archway through to the inner hallway.

A large drawing room sits to the front of the house, with two sash windows looking out to the front garden. It has wide plank limed oak flooring, ornate coving and a Victorian marble fireplace with cast iron inset.

Double doors lead from here into the interconnected sitting room, which has built-in cherry wood and marble shelving and feature cherry wood wall.

There is a utility room off this space.

On the first floor, the main bedroom also boasts plenty of period features, as well as a walk-in wardrobe with built-in storage and integrated lighting, and a luxurious ensuite bathroom with a double marble sink on raised mosaic flint, and his and hers showers.

At the garden level is a self-contained apartment with its own entrance which has two bedrooms, as well as a kitchen, living room and shower room. 

Outside, the south-facing rear garden is terraced into several levels, and has an Indian sandstone patio as well as the raised decked terrace. It is bordered by granite walls and features mature plants and trees. 

Overlooking De Vesci Gardens, this home is situated in a peaceful location. Less than 10 minutes’ walk from the nearest DART station, Dun Laoghaire’s West Pier, and just a few minutes more to the popular Seapoint beach and swimming spot, it’s a particularly enviable location.
