De­scrip­tion: Re­vamped Vic­to­rian red­brick a short walk from Dalkey vil­lage Agent: Sav­ills 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 en- trance 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
