Description

Sherry FitzGerald proudly present Lynbank an imposing semi-detached period home dating back to 1837 which is discretely nestled in on the slopes of Killiney Hill. This superb and charming home of distinction is filled with light from the east aspect especially the morning sunrise and is further enhanced enjoying un-obstructed sea and coastal views.

The property which is laid out over two levels, has retained many original features such as gracious room proportions, high ceiling heights, sash windows, ornate ceiling cornicing and coving, and original fireplaces to name but a few. The drawing room with its large bay window is one of the finest you will come across.

The beautifully appointed accommodation provides a wonderful balance between reception and bedroom accommodation. Lynbank has been tastefully extended by the current owner to include a contemporary split level extension with an additional staircase which blends seamlessly with the period elegance.

It is evident to see the heart of the home is at the lower garden level where the superb conservatory runs into the large family kitchen and through to the family room. There is a wonderful storage area with a boot/laundry/mud room providing superb extra space which is often lacking in period homes.

The gardens are as impressive as the house itself and extend to approx. 0.6 of an acre with a tiered lawn to the front and a spacious forecourt with parking for up to 6 cars. The main gardens enjoy a south easterly orientation and are well stocked with a selection of mature plants and shrubs.

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.

Something Different

20 Vesey Place, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, A96 Y6E5

€1,200,000 - Asking Price|4 Bedrooms, 353 sqm approx

Standing proud amongst this imposing terrace of handsome period Victorian homes, No.20 offers the discerning purchaser an enviable opportunity to acquire a substantial period residence with many of its original features remaining, including original ceiling coving, centre roses, fireplaces and sliding sash windows.

Built in the 1860’s and overlooking Willowbank Park, the terrace is located within one of south county Dublin’s most sought after coastal suburbs. Once part of the sleepy rural backdrop of the city, the popularity of the location soared in the mid 1800’s when wealthy merchants sought to set up homes within close proximity to the village of Dun Leary, which later became known as Kingstown, then an important district of business and cultural life.

Extending to 3,800sq.ft. (approx.) in its entirety, it is currently laid out in five units but could easily be returned into a family home with flexible and generously appointed accommodation, rich in character, synonymous with properties which reign from this era.
