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. There is a vast private granite patio area which is not overlooked as well as a sheltered wooden deck area with raised beds.

Approached off a private road, the property offers the utmost in seclusion. However is just a short walk to Killiney Beach and DART Station. There is also a pedestrian gate to Killiney Hill Road.

Something Different

14 Clarinda Park North, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin

€945,000 - Asking Price|3 Bedrooms, 211 sqm approx

Standing proud amongst this terrace of handsome Victorian homes, developed by P.W. Bryan, wine merchant, between 1849 and 1870, No.14 Clarinda Park North, is tucked away towards a quiet corner of the square with a lovely outlook over the central gardens and tennis courts to the front and spectacular views of Scotsman’s Bay to the rear. Built in 1855, it is rich in much of its original detail, including tall ceilings complimented by intricate ceiling coving, centre roses and bay windows, it is further complimented by a 52ft long garden to the rear with pedestrian rear access.

Well cared for by its current owners, it was formerly in use as a single dwelling and has most recently been in use as offices and would easily be converted into a generously appointed home (subject to planning permission currently being sought). Granite steps lead up to the hall door, beyond which lies an exceptionally large entrance hall which has tall ceilings heavily accented with ornate cornicing and a centre rose. The reception room to the front of the property, with its original Kilkenny marble fireplace, is very large and its bay window looks out towards the central green. There is a further reception room to the rear at this level, which could be used as an additional bedroom if so desired. As you alight the stairs, the cornicing continues overhead and there is a guest w.c. on the return. On the top floor, the principle bedroom spans the entire width of the property and has a dual aspect along with a large bay window which enjoys views of Killiney Hill, ceiling coving and centre rose. There is a further double bedroom to the rear of the property at this level which has beautiful views of Scotsman’s Bay. There is a further guest w.c. at the top of the house. The ground floor of the property is currently separate to the house with its own access from the front garden. It has two very large rooms, a lobby and a further guest w.c.. The rear reception room leads out to the low maintenance garden (52ft) which has pedestrian rear access onto a vehicular laneway.

The location of this property is superb. Situated on the fringes of both Dun Laoghaire and Glasthule, residents enjoy great ease of access to a wide variety of amenities, both social and essential, including popular shops, boutiques, specialist delicatessens, restaurants and bars, along with Peoples Park with its highly popular Sunday market and Fallon & Byrne restaurant. Leisure facilities are also in abundance in the locality with many local sporting clubs and the nearby coastline for enjoying leisurely strolls, while the four yacht clubs in Dun Laoghaire will be of great interest to budding and experienced sailors. The seafront will be even further enhanced by the exciting redevelopment of the famous Dun Laoghaire Baths into a café, artists area, parkland and new jetty where there will be facilities for sea swimming and small marine craft.
