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. Whilst enjoying these period features, Saintbury also benefits from having full planning permission to connect the existing house to the garage with a modern glass extension which in turn will bring the square footage to a vast 7,780sq.ft.
Saintbury is accessed through a central hall door that opens into an original wooden floored central hallway with feature staircases. On this level there is a stunning double aspect drawing room with bay window, a study, guest bathroom and three double bedrooms, the main with en-suite shower room and walk in dressing room. At lower level there is a superb family room, kitchen/breakfast area, three further bedrooms a small music room and generous storage areas. There is a family bathroom and separate w.c.
Set back from the road behind a private walled boundary and automated timber gates Saintbury offers the utmost in privacy and seclusion. It provides generous off-street parking to the front. The gardens are tiered to the front and rear of the house, the front runs up to Killiney Hill Road and has pedestrian access and the to the rear (sea side) again the lawn is tiered with two large patio areas which enjoy all day sunshine. The lower garden also benefits from a second automated entrance gate and provides additional car parking.
Widely regarded as one of Killiney's most desirable residential roads, this fine home is in a location of un-paralleled convenience, close to Dalkey and Glasthule villages, with their myriad of specialty shops, bars, restaurants, churches and a selection of excellent schools, not to mention Killiney Hill with its superb walks.
