Monkstown home attracts big interest

PHENOMENAL interest has already been shown in this imposing four-storey property at 4, Alta Terrace, Monkstown and auctioneer, Liam Lynch, of Lynch and Co, is confident of a quick sale.

Despite the Christmas slowdown in the property market, viewers have been out in their droves to see the house, he says, which goes to prove the point that good properties in the right location will always sell.

Facing the entrance to the uber-exclusive, Monkstown Demesne, this Victorian house will need lots of work, but that hasn’t put the buyers off, it seems. The property has a key selling point - its waterfront location and gardens which run down almost to the water, save for the Shanbally road.

This line of impressive semi-detached villas are regarded as some of the best properties in Monkstown. With access from Alta Terrace, the houses runs along the hill above the harbour and have wide views, and, although these are somewhat changed since the houses were originally built, it hasn’t affected their saleability. Guided at €600,000, with plenty of more money to be spent, this house is not cheap, but then again, it does have over 3,500 square feet internally, with large gardens.

Six bedrooms, a large lounge, family room, TV room, as well as a kitchen/dining room are part of the package and there is an entire, undeveloped basement space to boot.

Some of the work has been started already, the windows have been replaced and the property has been rendered and given a new coat of paint on the outside, but the interior will need attention - as much as a new owner cares to lavish.
