28 Kenilworth Square, Dublin

28 Kenilworth Square in Rev William Proctor's ownership

Houses of the Week: October 2006 is 28 Kenilworth Square, for €3.2m The numbering must have changed. In fact Rev Proctor's house would have been more expensive.

Number 28 Kenilworth Square — or Monza, as it’s otherwise known — is a late-Victorian double-fronted house with more engaging facial features than many of its period red-brick counterparts, including a pretty feature balcony over the door. Overlooking a Victorian Square, one of the few remaining privately owned squares in Dublin. Inside, there’s 3,000 sq ft of living space spread across three reception rooms, a kitchen, a utility room, four bedrooms and a bathroom.

All original period features have been retained to include original sash windows, polished wood floors, high plaster ceilings, and antique fireplaces. All rooms are particularly spacious. Consisting of huge entrance hall with staircase to upper floor. Guest lavatory off the hall. Two large reception rooms (one on each side of the front door) lead off the hall.

To the rear of the house there is a third room which may be used as a study / family room or au pair's bedroom (because it has a full bathroom off it). Very large kitchen (with underfloor heating) fitted with cream painted units, Belfast sink, modern integrated oven, hob & extractor fan and also the original (newly refurbished) traditional Aga cooker. Off the kitchen there will be a laundry room. Upstairs, there are four very large bedrooms, three of which have en suite shower rooms. Family bathroom with tub and shower over. All bathrooms have been newly fitted with white sanitary ware and limestone tiling.

Outside, there is a large enclosed front garden and a large enclosed back garden with patio.
