Cliff House, 101 Coliemore Road, Dalkey, Co Dublin, A96 AO36

€2,500,000 - Asking Price Sold 345 sqm approx


Cliff House, named after the rock on which it was built, is a wonderfully charming residence which sits proudly on the junction of Coliemore Road & Rockfort Avenue on an enviable elevated site with sea views of approx. 0.42 acre enjoying a unique and convenient setting on the edge of Dalkey, so close to the many amenities this charming town has to offer.

Cliff House has been the home of the late Michael & Grainne Yeats and his family, Michael was the son of the poet William Butler Yeats and nephew of artist Jack Yeats, Grainne was the well-known singer and harper. The house is sadly for sale now, as the family are all based overseas, and it is time to breathe new life into this wonderfully historic home. Whilst in need of modernisation Cliff House offers tremendous scope to the discerning purchaser to puts one’s own stamp on what is truly a wonderful home (subject to the necessary planning of course).

Deceptively unassuming to the front, Cliff House looks like a modest Victorian Villa however, it extends to a whopping 345 sq. m or 3,714 sq. ft.

The property is currently divided into two units but can easily be restored to its former glory. To the front there are two reception rooms, a bathroom and kitchen. To the rear of the property is a large three storey return with dining room/music room, kitchen/breakfast room, family room, and conservatory and shower room. Overhead there are three bedrooms two generous double rooms and a single room which leads into the attic space. On the lower garden level are the boiler room, bathroom and laundry room. The laundry room links in to the annex which contains 2 rooms and a shower room. There is access to the inner court yard and rear garden through the cottage.

The more than average grounds are majestic and enjoy access onto both Coliemore Road and Rockfort Avenue with generous off street parking at each of the two access points. Wonderfully mature and beautifully planted with a selection of colourful trees and shrubs, such as Magnolia, Rhodendrons, Hydrangeas, Eastern Redbud, Cherry Blossom and Old Roses – it is a garden enthusiast’s haven. For the family’s children there is more than enough room for a trampoline in either the front or rear garden.

The location of Cliff House needs little introduction – just a gentle stroll from Dalkey’s main thoroughfare with its array of restaurants, bars, coffee shows, excellent transport links, churches and schools it offers utmost in convenience.
