A terraced three-bed mews near the end of a short lane off Seafield Avenue in Monkstown, Co Dublin, has been completely modernised and upgraded since it was bought in 2012, and now includes details like panelled walls in the hall and understairs toilet that give it distinctive flair.
Number 3 Seafield Mews, with a compact 121sq m (1,302sq ft) of space was bought for €250,000 in 2012, and is now for sale through Sherry FitzGerald for €985,000.
One of six mews houses in the lane which runs behind the very grand seafront houses on the coast road from Blackrock to Dun Laoghaire, it is just a short walk to the sea.
The front façade – exposed stone with modern grey windows and front door – offers a hint to the stylish interior. The front hall has floor-to-ceiling pale grey panelling; double-glazed doors open on the left into a long livingroom. This (like the rest of downstairs) has a dark oak floor; a raised log-effect fireplace is set into an exposed stone wall, and custom-made shelving is built into the alcoves beside it.
Sliding glass doors open from here to the bright open-plan kitchen/living/dining room at the back of the house. The kitchen has a Silestone island unit and countertops, white brick splashback and smart pale grey units. There are two Velux windows over the livingroom space opposite the kitchen.
The dining area at the end of the room has a glass roof, and floor-to-ceiling windows, with glazed doors opening into the back garden. This is effectively an outdoor room, a paved area with a pebbled surround and high walls topped with timber fencing making it a very private space.
The downstairs toilet is unexpectedly grand, with grey-panelled walls and a marble-surround wash-hand basin. A hatch in the floor leads down to a basement storage space.
Upstairs are three bedrooms: the main bedroom is a modest-sized double, with custom-built wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There’s another small double with fitted wardrobes, a single bedroom, currently a baby’s room, and the family bathroom.
There is room to park one car in a space at the front of the house, and residents’ permit parking on Seafield Avenue, a short street which links the coast road (Seapoint Avenue) to the main Blackrock-to-Dun Laoghaire road.
