Saintbury House, Killiney Hill Road, Killiney, Co. Dublin, A96 X297

€2,650,000 - Asking Price|5 Bedrooms, 410 sqm approx

Saintbury House is a very fine, deceptively spacious, split level Victorian villa nested on a site of 0.75 of an acre on the southerly slopes of Killiney Hill Road enjoying stunning sea views. Built in the early 1800's Saintbury House is referred to in "From the Mountains to the Sea" as one of eight houses built before the arrival of the railway extension to Killiney.

Saintbury House was once the home of Major Charles James O’Sullivan, an officer in the Connaught Rangers, from 1926 to 1972. Major O’Sullivan’s daughter Maureen O’Sullivan left Saintbury for the USA at the age of 18 to start her career in film and went on to play “Jane” in the original Tarzan series with the Olympic medal winner Johnny Weissmuller. Maureen’s daughter, Mia Farrow also starred in a number of movies, most notably Rosemary’s Baby and was married to Frank Sinatra and had a lengthy relationship with Woody Allen so Saintbury has a colourful past.

Extending to a very spacious but manageable 4,413 sq.ft., the property enjoys many features synonymous with a house of its era including high ceiling heights, bay windows, coving and centre roses, internal door pediments and magnificent fireplaces. Whilst enjoying these period features, Saintbury also benefits from having full planning permission to connect the existing house to the garage with a modern glass extension which in turn will bring the square footage to a vast 7,780sq.ft.
