Appraisal

Belle Vue Place comprises two pairs of semi-detached houses, which were built at the beginning of Monkstown's development as a fashionable seaside resort in the nineteenth century. Retaining many historic features including timber sliding sash windows and decorative render details, this house is an eye-catching feature in the streetscape. These houses form part of a significant group of high status homes with the other fine houses which were built along the seafront at the time.
