Property Description:

Roslyn is without doubt a most charming Victorian residence of immense style and character situated in a picturesque seafront location on one of North Dublin' s most prestigious addresses on Claremont Road, Howth, convenient to all local amenities at both Howth village and Sutton Cross.

Dating back to circa 1870 this two storey over basement Victorian residence enjoys elegant family accommodation spread over its three floors and boasts many fine architectural embellishments of its era with high ceilings, ornate covings, elegant staircase and magnificent marble and cast iron fireplaces.

Above all Roslyn has enjoyed a love affair with the spectacular and picturesque coastline and stone steps lead directly from the rear garden to the renowned Burrow Beach. The views are simply breathtaking from all principal rooms and from the rear garden to Burrow Beach, Ireland' s Eye, Lambay Island and across the water to the sandy beach at Portmarnock and the Malahide coastline.

Approached by a leafy driveway the large front garden is mainly in lawn and there is a small orchard area close to the entrance. The tarmac driveway leads to a courtyard area with double garage and workshop. Above there is a wonderful sun deck with the most spectacular sea views and access to the main residence.

The rear garden is exceptional with luscious lawns, mature and colourful shrubbery, tall Cordylines, a lovers bank and large patio area. There is also a walled garden area with an abundance of wild garlic. Steps lead to a private gate with direct access to the seafront.

To appreciate this wonderful Victorian residence on just under circa 0.75acre of mature gardens in this idyllic coastal setting, viewing is essential.
