Full Description

An unrivalled opportunity to acquire a stunning aesthetically pleasing 1860s constructed detached double bay windowed double fronted Victorian period residence that extends to approximately 488sq.m (5,250sq.ft) and stands on level mature gardens of approximately 0.24 Ha (0.6 acre).

Castellated electric gates open into a large gravelled driveway with its own turning circle and parking for a multitude of cars with an extensive private sunny south westerly landscaped mature garden to the rear.
The Old Vicarage, as its name suggests purported to be the vicarage to St. Paul’s Church at the foot of the road, it is a bright light filled house with many architectural features similar to St. Pauls Church including matching entrance gates.

The property is positioned within an Architectural Conservation Area (ACA) and a house of the calibre of The Old Vicarage deserves to have all of its period embellishments, features and character remain intact. On first impressions it exudes all the grandeur, eloquence and style that one would expect from such a handsome property and once entered the interior does not disappoint. The generously proportioned accommodation spread over just two levels extends to an impressive 488sq.m (5,250sq.ft).

Briefly the accommodation comprises a large entrance hall with feature fireplace, diningroom with gable end bay window and French doors opening onto wrought iron stairs that overlook the sunny south westerly rear garden. A large study and a bathroom overlook the rear garden. The entire eastern wing houses the master suite comprising a generous bedroom, a dressing room and an en suite bathroom with oversize power and steam shower. The formal interconnecting drawing and music room are positioned overlooking the front of the house.
A feature wrought iron staircase leads to the ground floor. The ground floor consists of a large reception hall with checkered tiled floor. Three generous double bedrooms to the front of the house, understairs boot/cloakroom, a side entrance hall. To the back of the house overlooking the rear garden is an cinema/entertainment room with French doors, a further double bedroom, a wetroom bathroom, a laundry room leading to an enclosed courtyard and a large Siematic kitchen that opens into a stunning family/dining room that is a wonderful addition to the property and opens into the south westerly rear garden.

The gardens of The Old Vicarage beautifully complement its generous accommodation. The front provides off street parking for many cars behind electric gates whilst the rear offers private secluded landscaped, lawned and beautifully planted gardens with a wide selection of rare and interesting plants and shrubbery with the remainder laid out in suntrap patios making it ideal for al fresco dining. The entire grounds extend to a comfortable 0.24 Ha (0.6acre).

The property has been superbly maintained and upgraded over the years having undergone fully refurbishment throughout. The house was reroofed in 2012. A really excellent family/breakfast room was added to the rear of the property which is a wonderful addition and a lovely bright light infused comfortable living space.

The Old Vicarage is positioned at the south eastern end of Silchester Road which is the premier road in Glenageary. Just five minutes’ walk away is a regular bus and DART service available at either end of the road making commuting to and from the city centre and the surrounding areas very simple. The property is very conveniently located between Dalkey and Dun Laoghaire where there is an excellent range of shops, bars, banks, libraries and some of the finest restaurants in South County Dublin as well as all the facilities and amenities one would expect from the delightful villages of Glasthule, Sandycove and Dalkey.

Also within easy reach are many schools and colleges, a number of shopping centres and several churches with St. Paul’s on the corner as well as many others. There is a wide selection of sporting and recreational amenities including golf clubs, Glenageary Tennis Club, the beautiful walks over Dalkey and Killiney Hills and by the seafront. The four yacht clubs and extensive marina at Dun Laoghaire Harbour with its two piers will be of major interest to the sailing and marine enthusiast.
