16 Elton Court, Sandycove, Co. Dublin, A96 HT26

Terrace House







Janet Carroll is delighted to present for sale number 16 Elton Court (c. 1333sqft/123.8sqm), off Castle Park Road. An exceptional quality built Sorohan home, in this tranquil upmarket development in Sandycove. The location needs no introduction, as it has been one of the most sought after residential locations in South County Dublin, for generations.

Our vendors were one of the first families to buy a home here over 15 years ago, and they choose well. The property fronts onto the landscaped communal gardens. Having the first choice, they naturally also bought a beautiful private, south facing rear garden. There is a designated car parking space very close by, and visitor parking is available.

The theme of quality can be seen from the moment you enter this home. Tastefully designed and maintained to a very high standard, no expense has been spared on this home which has been enjoyed by the family. A wonderful aspect of this property is the careful thought put into the layout. It was originally designed as a four-bedroom home, but the vendors cleverly opted for the three-bedroom configuration that is well proportioned, and allows each of the bedrooms to benefit for an individual luxurious ensuite.

This home, although set in a low density luxury mature development, has the added bonus of being very central. Nearby are the picturesque seafronts and harbours of Dun Laoghaire, Sandycove, Bulloch, and Coliemore. Both Glasthule and Dalkey villages are within a short stroll. Coastal villages such as these provide a wonderful outlet for those who love walking, exercise, sightseeing and water activities, and when the sun shines, nowhere compares to the Sandycove skyline. We were delighted to be shown the original brochure for this home, and a phrase that stands out is 'Elton Court will stand the test of time'. Now that over a decade has passed, this statement has proven to be true. Quality runs to the very core of this beautiful development, and it will not disappoint.

This is a space that is quiet, serene and enclosed…heavenly. Bird feeders welcome a host of gold finches etc. on a daily basis. The occasional squirrel provides a sense of nature to this space.
