Full description:


Built circa 1878 in attractive cut stone granite and including a castellated tower the accommodation is well proportioned and elevated to allow all the principal rooms enjoy the truly marvellous coastal position, a later extension providing some 4,670 square feet or 436 square metres of accommodation in all and majestically linking the house to the magical seafront position with access to two seafront garden terraces, a ‘secret' Italianate garden and the wider pleasure grounds. A flight of granite steps lead from an enclosed walled courtyard, with ample parking, up to the front door and into the impressive reception hall, which leads in turn to the principal reception rooms and stair hall.

Being balanced within a semi-detached composition the house is positioned to the southern end of the large grounds, making them seem extraordinarily generous and most especially by comparison in such a rare seaside position with private beach access. This combined with all the principal rooms being sea facing and an overall orientation toward the private gardens and solid stone walls make the accommodation and grounds extremely secluded and private.

The grounds are simply magical, linking seamlessly to the house and beach and enjoying panoramic sea views over Killiney Bay to Dalkey Island and Bray Head and outward to sea. Incorporating a pleasant mix of formal, manicured lawns including a full size tennis court, and informal gravelled paths and shrubberies the grounds also provide further accommodation spaces and include the former boathouse, a charming timber chalet, a garden room, dolls house and several paved terraces suitable for al fresco dinning. The boathouse has been used as a cinema room, the timber chalet faces south and west and is often utilised for garden entertaining and the garden room has direct sea views and is extremely suited for a quiet read. The decked timber terraces link directly between the house and beach and accessed from numerous French doors can be readily utilised as outdoor accommodation spaces. The ‘secret' Italianate garden is pleasantly hidden, being largely enclosed.

Enjoying an excellent position Dunmara is located within close proximity to the heritage villages of Dalkey and Killiney village, providing an array of speciality shops, eateries, bijou restaurants and hostelries. A variety of nearby recreational amenities include golfing, hill walking over the Dalkey and Killiney hills, beach walks and 4 yacht clubs. Some of south Dublin's most prestigious primary and secondary schools are located within close proximity. The M11 and M50 orbital motorway are within close reach and access to the city centre and airport convenient. Public transport links include access at nearby Killiney to the DART light rail network or at Cherrywood to the LUAS tramway network. BER (Building Energy Rating) Exempt.
