No 2 Mount Salus is one of a pair of Victorian homes. Built in approx 1841 it exemplifies period architecture at its finest with its stunning granite cut features including an impressive portico and two bay windows which have been referred to in Peter Pearson's book from the Mountains to the Sea as "half-octagonal bow windows".

This impressive 5 bedroom double fronted Victorian family home (343.59 Sq.m / 3,698.37 Sq.ft) is located in this enviable and exclusive address off Knocknacree road, Dalkey, Co. Dublin.

In 1854, Cardinal John Henry Newman spent some time in 2 Mount Salus whilst establishing the Catholic University, now UCD. During his stay at the property he wrote to his sister "...the place is as beautiful as it is healthy. The house is on the rocks which rise above Dublin Bay - and commands a view of the whole coast and headlands. The Wicklow Mountains are seen out one window, Howth and Kingstown out the other. I never saw a place out of Italy and Sicily like it for beauty of rock and sea..."

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.
