To let: Grand designs on the property market - Killiney
Killiney, Co Dublin Rent: €7,500 per month
Killiney's long Seafield Road has a broad range of individually designed houses, many behind very private and elaborate sets of gates, so it's a difficult place to ascribe one quality to. Are they Victorian? Georgian? Tigerian?
Well this property is one of those hidden behind an electronic barrier where you will find a double-fronted house of Edwardian elegance.
A red-brick pitched room with bay windows overlooks expansive lawns and many of the century-old original features have been maintained and retained.
A bright tiled hall leads to a dual aspect drawing room with inter-connecting doors to a study.
The dining room has sash windows and a period fireplace with a separate pantry for staff accessed through a secret door to enable entertaining without disturbance.
This leads to the kitchen which is fitted with an Aga and a full range of modern appliances.
From here there is a breakfast/family room, utility room (with wood burning stove) and a 'garden room' with floor to ceiling windows and doors opening to the patio and gardens. There is a guest WC on this floor also.
Upstairs are four bedrooms, the master suite is ensuite with a dressing room and adjacent nursery. One other bedroom is also ensuite and there is a family bathroom on this level too.
A fifth bedroom has been added in a mezzanine area over the double garage which has its own shower room and sitting room so can be used for guests, a house-keeper or perhaps an au pair.
Outside there is an acre of land and a Shomera style accommodation (which would work as a home office) and a greenhouse if the tenants fancy a little grow-your-own.
The driveway provides ample parking for a number of vehicles.
The property comes to market unfurnished and the area has good transport links with the Killiney DART station a few minutes' away and the Luas at Cherrywood a 3.5km drive. The N11/M50 junction is 2.3km from the property.
