An end-of-terrace Victorian redbrick ticks many of the usual boxes: lots of period features – elaborate cornicing, centre roses, marble fireplaces, sash windows – and was revamped and extended about 10 years ago.

There’s separate access to almost self-contained garden level accommodation and a neat back garden with decking and patio areas. The property is a short stroll to Dalkey’s main street from Ulverton Road, the name of the final stretch of the busy main Dún Laoghaire to Dalkey road.

Number 18 Ulverton Road, a 300sq m (3,229sq ft) four-bed, is for sale through Savills for €1.95 million. The house, empty since its owners moved on recently, has been staged for sale and is in mostly good condition, although a little tired in parts: the timber floor in the entrance hall is a bit scuffed, and some cream units in the kitchen need painting.

Low electronic gates open into a pebbled front garden with space to park two cars. Granite steps lead up to the front door and into a grand entrance hall with elaborate cornicing, handsome centre rose and an arched alcove.

The drawingroom on the left has a very tall and deep bay window and white marble fireplace; an arch opens into the diningroom, with a black marble fireplace. The same rich cornicing and centre roses are continued here.

The kitchen at the end of the hall, with a cream Aga and granite worktops, opens into a bright conservatory/breakfastroom, both floored with beige tiles. French doors open on to a back deck. There’s also a good-sized downstairs hall cupboard which could be turned into a toilet.

Smart bathroom

Upstairs, there’s a single bedroom on the first return, decorated as a child’s bedroom, next to the smart family bathroom, with grey tiles and a rolltop bath. The main bedroom on the first floor to the front stretches across the width of the house; it has two windows, one a tall deep bay mirroring that of the drawingroom below, with deep cornicing and a centre rose. Another double beside it, like the main bedroom, has built-in wardrobes.

A few more stairs lead to the top landing where a smaller double bedroom overlooks the rear garden. A shower room alongside is fully tiled.

There’s separate access to the garden level from a door under the front stairs as well as from stairs off the front hall: it’s a space that could work as a self-contained flat for grandparents or adult children. Accommodation includes a  large timber-floored livingroom with a cast-iron fireplace and a deep bay window, a large double bedroom, shower room and a study space in the hall – a large desk has been placed there next to a door leading into a courtyard outside. There’s no kitchen, but one could be fitted into the large utility room at the end of the hall.

Outside, a neat back garden has two patio areas and a lawn as well as a deck. There’s rear access to number 18 from a lane off Carysfort Road around the corner from Ulverton.
