From spectacular reception rooms to an original sun house in the garden, this home combines old-school details with sympathetic modern touches.


Situated on a quiet road in Monkstown, Westbury is a gorgeous Victorian home that has recently been renovated to preserve its historic charms, while introducing modern details. Built around 1864, it has many features you would expect of this period, including granite steps leading to the front door, as well as decorative ceiling cornicing and several original marble fireplaces.

On the ground floor, two grand reception rooms provide beautiful spaces for relaxing and entertaining. The drawing room has two sash windows that look out to the front garden, and also features an original fireplace and gold leaf detailing on the ceiling. The dining room is bright, too, thanks to a large window with a view of the rear garden. The kitchen is also on this level, with solid wood countertops, and a Belfast sink.

The garden level of this home provides plenty of additional living space, with a utility room, shower room, and two of the house’s five bedrooms. There is also a large room that is used as a gym by the current owners, however this space could easily be turned into a kitchen, as all the necessary plumbing was added when the house was refurbished. There is a separate entrance on this floor.

On the first floor are three more bedrooms, including the main bedroom which has its own dressing room. The front of the house has an electronic gate, with space to park several cars, while the large rear garden has granite walls and is beautifully landscaped and includes olive, apples, pear and fig trees.

It also features an original wooden sun room on the lawn, which can be rotated 360 degrees to follow the sun throughout the day. There is also a two-storey coach house which has the potential to provide further accommodation. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this home.
