House hunters in Dun Laoghaire with a €1m-plus budget, who aren't keen on devoting all their spare time to renovating a Victorian doer-upper, can get the benefits of a new home with the architectural treasures of the 19th century in the form of the last remaining property in the initial phase of Tivoli Place.
The home is a three-storey three-bed townhouse extending over 2,378 sq ft. It is one of five terraced houses in a 130-year-old refurbished building on the Tivoli Road frontage of Royal Terrace. The period conversion was once home to a then-progressive orphanage called The Cottage Home for Little Children.
The conversion of The Cottage Home was first envisioned 12 years ago by developer Robin Power, but receivers were appointed to the Power family's Kembara Properties in 2015 and the site, along with its listed building, was later sold to developer Elmhill Homes. Montane was tasked with transforming the listed structure into five high-end homes, meticulously restoring the facade with its full brickwork.
The asking price for the last of the five terraced properties is €1.15m. The townhouse comes with two parking spaces, a substantial outdoor storage shed and a private garden with a southerly aspect. Bespoke details include individually designed bathrooms with Heritage sanitary ware, recessed lighting, tiling and built-in storage.
A further five homes will be released at the site later this year. DDA architects have designed the houses in such a way that they will seamlessly complete the terrace at Royal Terrace North. Prices have not yet been set for the upcoming release.
