Property SummaryRiviera Terrace is just such a charming old terrace of Victorian houses dating back to the 1880’s. located in Rushbrooke, it was part of the Smith Barry Estate and were occupied by some of the medical profession of the British army at the time.
No. 2 is a semi -detached 3 storey house with access via steps and a large garden overlooking Monkstown with its own access to the train station at the end of the garden. You have a patio and sun terrace to the front with a courtyard and garden to the rear complete with garage. The house has a westerly aspect so it has the sun all day. The house has been renovated throughout so structurally doesn’t appear to have any problems and has been maintained to the highest standard. All the original marble fireplaces are there, original stain glass window on the return of the stairs, cornicing, original tiled hall floor, pitch pine wooden floors and doors and of course sash windows (replaced and made to match the original sash windows) and shutters all working.
On approach you are greeted with a sunroom off the side of the house which has two entrances and access to the main front door of the house and one of the reception rooms. Once you are in you have the entrance hall complete with the original tiled floor. Off the hall are 2 rooms (one could be the guest loo and other the utility room), 2 reception rooms with double doors, original fireplaces, bay windows, pitch pine floorboard and a connecting door to the sunroom. The kitchen and breakfast room are to the back of the house with access to the private courtyard complete with outside WC and door to the side of the house.
First floor – 3 bedrooms (2 to the front and 1 to the back all with fireplaces) and a main bathroom with both a bath and shower. There is also a separate WC.
Second floor – 2 bedrooms and an office with WHB (this could be a bathroom as the plumbing is there).
The lovely feature of Victorian houses is the character, charm and space. They make a lovely family home and the proportion of the rooms are just right.
If you are looking for a manageable and affordable period property, No2 is ideal.
