It occupies a wonderful position on this tree lined sylvan setting just off Killiney Hill Road. Shops, churches and a wide variety of schools including St. Andrews College, Blackrock College, St. Michaels’s College, Loreto Dalkey, and Castlepark are easily accessible as are the many interesting coastal scenic walks over Killiney and Dalkey Hills and along Killiney Beach. Along with the DART, the N11, M50 and LUAS are only a short commute away which make accessing the city centre and further afield very simple. The airport is just a 30 minute commute away.

Killiney Lodge is a handsome aesthetically pleasing Victorian period residence that has a distinct regency style to its makeup. An impressive set of granite steps lead up to the generous reception hall that opens to beautifully proportioned gracious reception rooms either side which overlook the stunning gardens and both of which retain the period embellishments of the era including high ceilings, ornate cornice work and ceiling roses as well as period fireplaces, sliding sash windows with their shutters intact. The rear of the property at this level houses two double bedrooms, one with a mezzanine level and the other with an en suite shower room and dressing room/nursery. A family bathroom concludes the accommodation on the hall return.
Downstairs has a further two double bedrooms, an excellent sitting room with dual aspect windows, a kitchen/breakfast room with terrazzo floor that opens into the suntrap patios through the French doors as well as having steps leading up to the wonderful garden room and into the scullery.

The gardens are a particular feature of this magnificent residence and complement the house beautifully. Granite pillared gates open into a tree lined gravelled driveway with parking for many cars. The lawned private gardens have a sunny south-westerly orientation that is surrounded by herbaceous borders, a selection of mature specimen trees and high hedging. The two tiered patio areas outside the kitchen and garden room are a complete suntrap all day and are ideal for al fresco dining and even house a purpose built barbecue area.
