When the current owner added the entertainment area 12 years ago he wanted something that was more dramatic than the traditional extension ideas being offered by Architects. He turned to Rob Jacob of JLS Design in Kinsale. Rob's background is in design of super yachts, originally alongside Ron Holland and now with the JLS team. Rob designed the double height room to the front in an unusual vaulted shape which brings out the three dimensional thinking of a boat designer.
The accommodation briefly comprises of entrance hall, large double height entertainment room, interconnecting dining, drawing and library, super Pogenpohl kitchen, utility and guest w.c. at hall level. Upstairs there are four very large double bedrooms, three of which are en-suite, and a family bathroom. The two bedrooms to the rear have large picture windows and enjoy stunning sea views over Dublin Bay to Howth and beyond. At lower garden level there is a beautifully appointed family room and home gym. There are three very useful basement storage areas. An annexe to the side accommodates a comfortable home office.
Set back behind high granite walls and timber electronic gates on approx. 1/4 acre of gardens, Dunross enjoys the utmost in privacy; possibly the most discreet property in the Dalkey area. The front garden is a real suntrap and enjoys a southerly aspect. A cobble driveway runs down the side of the property and opens into a forecourt with ample car parking. The main garden is laid out in lawn bounded by mature hedging. The garden is beautifully planted and mature with a paved patio area to the rear and a Garden Room.
Enjoying an enviable position on the outskirts of Dalkey Heritage town, Dunross offers un-paralleled convenience close to Dalkey, Sandycove and Glasthule, with their myriad of specialty shops, bars, restaurants, churches and a selection of excellent schools including the multidenominational Castlepark School. Glenageary DART station is a gentle 7 minutes stroll away and the superb Killiney Hill park is a short walk up Saval Park Road.
