A FORMER VICTORIAN RESIDENCE, Royal Terrace North is a group of homes that falls outside the usual new-build box. It is, in fact, an updated period development with well over a century of history.

Five newly-completed homes are now for sale, all period properties revamped to the highest standards, with touches of Victorian elegance throughout.

This terrace was started over 150 years ago, according to The Irish Times, but was stalled due to fallout from Great Famine, believe it or not.

In this third and final terrace, the properties all have four large bedrooms each, including a main suite with its own dressing room.

The kitchens in the property are immensely stylish, with solid oak units throughout. Period colours are used here and in all parts of the home, and a natural stone island sits in the middle of the kitchen – a perfect space to relax over breakfast.

Ornate reception rooms echo the Victorian roots of the property the most, with features such as high ceilings, sash windows, panelling and bay windows showcasing the attention to detail put into this property.

These homes are surprisingly practical, given their age.

There is parking both on and off street, plenty of storage space within the home, and a A2 energy rating for optimal energy conservation.

Dun Laoghaire is perhaps the ultimate South Dublin luxury spot, home to shops, restaurants and bars galore, as well as a gorgeous harbour area and nearby beach.

The DART runs to the city centre regularly, and journey time is about 30 minutes.
