Full Description

On approximately 2.02 ha (5 acres)

A magnificent detached Victorian residence located on Marino Avenue West enjoying spectacular sea views within an enviable private secluded position overlooking Killiney Bay, Sorrento Terrace and Dalkey Island.

Having been occupied by the same family for almost 40 years, Summerhill comes to the market offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire one of South Dublin’s finest homes.

This Victorian residence dating from the mid-1800’s sits amongst 2.02Ha (5 acres) of the finest manicured gardens and grounds. The long sweeping driveway past the tennis court, golf putting and chipping green, manicured lawns and feature waterfall and pond lead to the house with ample off street car parking to the front and side.

The entrance porch leads to the entrance hall and inner hall with magnificent staircase surround. The accommodation of approximately 701.45sq.m (7,550sq.ft) is over three floors with spaciously proportioned rooms that offer comfortable accommodation. The principal reception rooms face south enjoying views over the grounds towards the sea.

The kitchen to the rear is the focal point in the home and includes a sitting/dining area with views over Dalkey Island.

The garden level/basement includes gym, bar and plant room with access to the lower gardens and lawns.
Upstairs there are seven bedrooms, the master bedroom suite includes a large en suite bathroom and the bedroom itself enjoys fine views. There are six further bedrooms, one of which is en suite together with a second staircase.

The house also benefits from a comfortable coach house to the side which is ideal for staff accommodation.
