Shandon Cottage in Monkstown featured in the Irish Times this week, you can read the article in full here.
Shandon Cottage is a wonderful detached home, built circa 1865. It was the original gate lodge to what was formerly Shandon House and as such
is both a special and unique property.
The Cottage has been renovated and extended to an impeccable standard by the current owner. It now provides approximately 112 sq m / 1,210 sq ft of well laid out, light filled living accommodation. It’s charm has been retained whilst providing for contemporary modern day living. One of this delightful home’s most noteworthy features are the stunning mountain views to be enjoyed from the rear of the house. These views combined with a highly sought after sunny south orientation there is no doubt that this is a home not to be missed. A pedestrian gate leads into a gravelled front garden with stepping stone pathway to the front door. An entrance porch opens into a welcoming reception hallway with Little Wenlock solid fuel stove setting the ambience for what lies ahead.
It enjoys a premiere location, situated on Montpelier Parade just off Monkstown Road and just minutes from the sea.
Monkstown Road also leads directly to Monkstown Village where an eclectic mix of shops, cafés and restaurants such as Salt at Avoca, Café du Journal, Bresson Brassiere, FXBs, Lobstar and That’s Amore are to be found. The village which is steeped in history has a unique architectural style with many of the shops retaining their original Victorian facades. The Bay at Seapoint with its maritime attractions such as the Martello Tower and coastal walks along the east & west piers are all close by.
