Camelot is an opportunity to acquire a unique three-bedroom Victorian home steeped in architectural history, this landmark building is located in the heart of Killiney village on Victoria Road. The house offers stunning views over Killiney Beach, Bray Head, and the Sugar Loaf at the rear. Camelot was originally constructed by Robert Warren, in approximately 1853 as the gate lodge to three properties: Victoria Castle (Now Ayesha Castle) (1830); Mount Eagle (1837) and Mount Mapas Cottage (1840). Warren owned Killiney Hill at this time and had plans for its development, but it then came into public ownership. Camelot is a Protected Structure (DLRCoCo Ref: 1646) and comprises an original circular cut granite castellated tower with lancet windows and rampart stretching over Victoria Road, at the rear there is a later extension overlooking the garden. To the front of the house there is off street parking. The internal accommodation is laid out over three levels and extends to approximately 154sqm (1,655sqft). At ground floor level there is a welcoming entrance hall with video intercom system, off this there is a newly fitted contemporary wet room, to the rear there is a bright and spacious siting/dining room with breath-taking views from the balcony over Killiney Beach, Bray Head and the Sugarloaf. This opens through to a light filled kitchen with grey Shaker style units. There is a spiral granite staircase within the circular tower leading to first floor level where there is a lobby with book shelving leading into the master suite with a sliding door out onto a balcony with spectacular views, here there a large en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath. At lower garden level there is a hall with access to a courtyard that houses the gas fired central heating boiler, a shower room, the lower section of the circular tower which provides good storage and two further bedrooms complete the accommodation with one opening out onto a suntrap patio. The two terraces and extensive south facing gardens are a real feature of Camelot, the elevated views from the master suite and sitting room are absolutely magnificent. The south facing garden measures approximately 36metres in length, there is gated pedestrian access and it is surrounded with high granite walls making it very private. The size of the garden offers potential purchasers’ scope to extend the property subject to the necessary planning permission and create a large home should they require it. Peter Pearson refers to Camelot in his reference book Between the Mountains and the Sea ‘(Robert) Warren also built the magical cut-granite archway and gate-lodge which is such a feature of Killiney village. The gateway, which is part of a small house once called Camelot, is surmounted by a castellated rampart which connects with a large circular tower and smaller lookout’ The location of Camelot will be of major interest to those trying to get a foothold in the highly sought after and popular Killiney Hill location close to local shops, the pleasant walks over Killiney and Dalkey hills, excellent schools, recreational facilities as well as transport with the 59 bus connecting to Dun Laoghaire DART Station and surrounds
