Rockfort Avenue is a secluded street linking Coliemore and Sorrento Roads in Dalkey. Tucked away in this exclusive enclave, Milroy Cottage is a picture-postcard end-of-terrace house that at first glance may look relatively compact, but first impressions can be deceptive.

The double-fronted, bay windowed property measures 2,583 sq ft, making it about two-and-a-half times the size of the average contemporary home.

Considering its position overlooking the Irish Sea, the house is cleverly laid out in upside-down fashion, with the living rooms on the top floor, making the most of the coastal views, and bedrooms below.

According to the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown archives, this particular terrace on Rockfort Avenue is made up of 19th century artisan cottages. Over the course of time, residents of Milroy Cottage have meticulously maintained the house and its period features, including original shutters, marble fireplaces, coving and dado rails.

Steps lead up to the entrance hallway, off which are a family room, living room, dining room and kitchen/breakfast room. From here, double doors open on to a balcony running the width of the house looking out over Dublin Bay across to Howth.

The ground floor has four bedrooms. The main has an ensuite bathroom and doors leading out to a private patio. Of the remaining three, two are ensuite and one has its own entrance, making it an ideal home office. There’s also a family bathroom and utility room on this level.

The landscaped back garden has mature hedges, trees and flower beds, while the front drive provides off-street parking for four cars. It’s a five-minute walk to Dalkey village. Milroy Cottage is on the market at €2,200,000 with Sherry FitzGerald Dalkey (01) 275 1000
