Period Property for Sale in Co. Cork

3 Sydenham Terrace, Monkstown, Co. Cork
A classic Regency terraced house set in a quiet cul de sac with spacious
accommodation, wonderful gardens and views over the Inner Harbour

Built as homes for Naval officers’ in the early 19th century this handsome terrace of six properties offers gracious living space coupled with an unrivalled harbour-side location only 20 minutes drive from the city centre.

The imposing houses offer well-proportioned accommodation arranged over three floors, to include three reception rooms and four bedrooms together with kitchen and utility rooms to the lower ground floor. The main reception rooms are at first-floor entry level which afford them wonderful light and views over the rear gardens and harbour, enhanced by large sash windows and high ceilings.

Whilst the house has retained most of its period features, it is centrally heated with radiators to all floors. It has been well maintained and upgraded over the years with recent works to roof, windows and drains. Other improvements have contributed to a C3 BER rating - a respectable performance for a period building.

The leafy suburb of Monkstown is one of the city’s most sought after and this terrace has proved equally popular over the years. Monkstown offers a peaceful harbour side location with the property well situated for many local amenities including primary school, pubs, cafe and restaurant all within walking distance. Monkstown Sailing Club and Monkstown Tennis Club are also within walking distance whilst Monkstown Golf Club is within 1 km.

The accommodation includes an entrance hall, drawing room and dining room overlooking the gardens and harbour, sitting room, kitchen, laundry, pantry, boot room, four bedrooms and bathroom. To the front of the property is a useful Stores room which can also be accessed from inside the house. It provides space for the central heating boiler, oil storage tank, bins and firewood.

Sydenham Terrace is a quiet cul de sac with parking immediately outside the houses. The property has wonderful gardens which are a special feature. The small front garden is laid to gravel with shrubs and trees whilst the rear gardens are of generous proportion, sloping gently toward the harbour. They are facing southeast and are terraced with lawns, stone and gravel areas. They include many interesting shrubs and trees including many Acers, Magnolias, Tree Ferns and Pines as well as apple trees. A glasshouse is located at the end of the garden.
