Full description:

Hunters Estate Agent are honoured to present to the market this stunning late 19th century five bedroom mansion extending to circa 380sq.m/4,100sq.ft. Commissioned in 1874 the property is constructed in the Italianate style popularised by Queen Victoria in her summer residence Osborne House and bears many of the same hallmarks such as the campanile viewing tower and ornamented stucco faηade, albeit on a smaller scale. The property was renovated and restored in 1987 by Cheshire Homes the developers of the Richmond Park Estate and has been well maintained by the current owners.

Upon entering the property one is immediately welcomed by a bright outer hall with an attractive Victorian pattern tiled floor which leads through double doors to the grand reception hall with impressive period cornice and grand dimensions. To the right there is a very large dining room with dual aspect and original period plaster work. To the left one enters the generous and very fine drawing room which contains some excellent examples of the plasterwork of the period and a large marble chimney piece with open fire and has the benefit of a large bay window and dual aspect. To the rear of the house there is a spacious kitchen/breakfast room fully equipped with built in units with a useful utility room with separate access to the side of the house and a large study/family room with dual aspect. There is also a well-equipped guest bathroom, garden lobby with storage and a cloakroom at this level. Rising up the grand staircase one encounters the stunning showpiece marble colonnaded landing that joins the first floor return and first floor of the property. At return level there are two generous double bedrooms and a well-equipped family bathroom. The first floor is set out as three grand bedrooms and was originally intended for the principle members of the household (a tradition continued today). The master bedroom has the benefit of built-in wardrobes and a dual aspect with views over the rooftops of Monkstown to glimpses of the sea beyond, the second bedroom is a large dual aspect bedroom with the benefit of a large suite situated at the first floor level of the campanile tower. There is a further spacious double bedroom at this level. From the first floor landing a small staircase leads up to the tower observation room with its 270 degree panoramic views encompassing.

This gracious period residence is situated on a site of circa 0.25 acre bounded by railings, walls and mature planting. To the front there is a generous gated off-street parking area, while to the rear there a large south-facing garden of circa 100ft laid out in lawn and bounded by mature hedging and specimen trees with planted beds and a terrace on which to take the evening sun. There is also a large wooden storage shed and pedestrian access to the rear garden from both sides of the property.

Richmond Park and Richmond Park House were originally established in 1874 by Sydenham Davis. Sydenham Davis of Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny was an established Kilkenny landlord. He was also a Taxing Masters of the Supreme Court of Judicature. Prior to his appointment as Taxing Master he was well known as an experienced and skilful solicitor in Dublin. The house itself is a Victorian era property that retains many of its original features including its ornamented stucco faηade, elaborately carved exterior timber roof brackets, a carved timber porch to the rear, and various copper roofs covering the bow windows and Italianate tower. The interior boasts a variety of marble fireplaces, a marble pillared second floor landing, and decorative plasterwork that surrounds large parts of the high ceilings.

Richmond Park House is set at the end of Richmond Hill above Monkstown and is located within Monkstown Parish. Bustling Monkstown Crescent a five minute walk from the property has an enviable plethora of boutiques, restaurants and gourmet shops including a branch of Avoca. It is an easy walk to both Monkstown and Dun Laoghaire allowing one to enjoy both the pleasure of fine restaurants and enjoyable walks on the piers of old Kingstown. There is superb public transport with the Dart Station at Salthill 8 minutes walk and South County Dublin's favourite bus the 46A stopping close by. Nearby schools include CBC Monkstown, Newpark, Blackrock College, St. Andrew's, Rathdown, Castlepark, Sion Hill, the Harold and Monkstown Educate Together to name but a few. The area is also blessed with a myriad of parks. One of the location's most attractive features is the close proximity to the coast, in particular Dun Laoghaire Harbour with its four yacht clubs.
