BUILT IN THE 1950s, 95 Monkstown Avenue is a four-bedroom detached home that has been renovated and modernised to create a property that wouldn’t look out of place in an interior design magazine. 

Inside, the heart of the home a large open-plan living, kitchen and dining area. Added as an extension, this space was clearly designed with modern family living in mind.

High ceilings reach over 3m, while a large atrium roof light illuminates every corner. Furthermore, zoned lighting means you can adjust the brightness to match the atmosphere.

A large island in the kitchen area also acts as a breakfast bar, and features a quartz countertop to match the rest of the space. Applications include a Neff double oven, microwave and an impressive fridge/freezer. A utility room provides further storage.

There’s no shortage of space for entertaining in here, with room for a large dining table and several more seating options. The living area, which features an inset stove, can be laid out in various different ways to depend on the occasion. A bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

What was once the fifth bedroom has been transformed into a remarkable family bathroom with twin hand basins, a bath, walk-in shower and a laundry chute which leads to the utility room. No more dropped socks on the way down the stairs, then.
