Enjoy the romance of Monkstown's Verona in a chic two-bed apartment
Sin É, Apt 14 Verona, Monkstown €495k
The villa known as Verona at Queen's Park in Monkstown, Co Dublin, was built in 1873 to a design by architect Alfred Gresham Jones, and then demolished a little over a century later.
What replaced it was also called Verona - a mock-Georgian apartment complex built in 1989 to a design by architects Gibbons & Associates.
There are just 15 apartments in Verona, and No 14 - known as 'Sin É' - is a two-bed on the ground floor, with its own entrance, and it's expensively fitted out with oak doors and architraves and underfloor heating.
Inside the front door is a curved inner hallway which, as it's almost fully glazed, keeps the daylight flowing into the main reception room within.
This is a sizeable living room, measuring some 23ft by 12ft, and there's a fireplace fitted with an electric fire.
To the left is the kitchen which, at 23ft by 9ft, is easily big enough for a dining table against the front window. It's fitted with Shaker-style cabinets and dark, glossy countertops.
Straight ahead from the living room is a small inner hallway leading to the two bedrooms, both of which have built-in wardrobes.
The main bedroom has an en-suite shower and the other is right next to the family bathroom; both bathrooms have underfloor heating.
The apartment itself measures 892 sq ft and it has a separate lockable store room.
There's one parking space going with the property, and management fees of €2,600 a year are payable.
Queen's Park itself is a teardrop-shaped cul de sac opening south off the Monkstown Road. Seapoint Dart station is 700 metres away and Seapoint Beach is about five minutes' walk.
'Sin É' is for sale for €495,000 with Janet Carroll (087) 400 2020.
