Full Description

Stokeville is a unique marine residence situated on Coliemore Road in Dalkey, one of South Dublin’s most scenic coastal villages. There are beautiful sea views over Dalkey Sound, the Muglins, Dalkey Island and Dublin Bay from the first floor bedrooms of the property. The house is within strolling distance of Dalkey Village, Coliemore Harbour, Dillon’s and Sorrento Parks and the Vico bathing area.

The property comprises a most attractive two storey semi-detached period home. The house originally consisted of a single storey cottage fronting onto Lacey’s Lane, a pedestrian right-of-way leading to Sorrento Road. It has been extended over the years and is now a substantial sized family home of great character, measuring approx. 206 sqm (2,217 sqft) with projecting sunroom at the front. Stokeville stands at a right angle to the road on approximately 0.16 acre of mature private gardens and benefits from a wonderful south westerly orientation which results in long hours of sunshine.

Internally the accommodation at ground level comprises: sunroom overlooking the garden, entrance hall with under stairs storage and archway leading through to the back of the house, two good reception rooms overlooking the front of the property with attractive original chimney pieces and ceiling rose, guest w.c., sitting room overlooking the rear of the property, kitchen with fitted units and a utility room with dual access to the rear of the property fronting onto Lacey’s Lane and to an internal yard with garden store and gate opening to the garden. At first floor level there are four very well-proportioned bedrooms, the two bedrooms to the front of the house offer wonderful sea views of Dalkey Island, Muglins and Sound. The two bedrooms to the rear afford a distant view of Dublin Bay. There is also a family shower room and walk in hot press at this level. The house retains many original period features throughout including sliding sash windows, working shutters and original chimney pieces. To the rear of the property there is a gravelled area with pedestrian gate opening out onto Lacey’s Lane, providing a shortcut leading up to Victoria Road, Sorrento Road and the DART. The heating in the property is gas fired and the roof was recently replaced. Stokeville has been maintained by the present owners but would now benefit from refurbishment throughout. It offers the potential purchaser an opportunity to acquire a well-positioned family home with scope to extend and/or modernise to their own taste subject to the necessary planning permission.

Stokeville is very well located being a short stroll from Dalkey Village which offers a wonderful array of specialist shops, restaurants, services and public houses. Dalkey is a heritage village offering wonderful areas of natural beauty. The Village is very well served by public transport to include the DART, regular bus routes linking it to Dublin City Centre and Dún Laoghaire Town Centre and the Aircoach which provides a direct route to Dublin Airport. It is in the catchment area for excellent primary and secondary schools including: Loreto NS and Secondary School, Harold Boys NS, St. Patrick’s NS (all within easy walking distance) as well as, Castlepark, CBC Monkstown, St. Joseph of Cluny and Rathdown. There are a wide range of amenities nearby including swimming, boating and fishing at Coliemore Harbour and Vico Bathing Area and walks over Dalkey and Killiney Hills.
