With stunning direct sea views across Killiney Bay and Killiney Beach over to Bray Head, Carrickmoleen is a truly exceptionally property with an idyllic southerly aspect. Dating from the early 1800's and steeped in history, Carrickmoleen is one of South Dublin's grand period residences situated on the revered Killiney Hill Road. A truly paradisal setting, this special property is situated on approx. two acres of manicured lawns with fine specimen trees, two Victorian greenhouses (recently renovated), and tennis court all of which enjoy complete privacy. Upon entering via the sweeping driveway lined with mature Rhododendrons and Hydrangeas, the grandeur of the house is immediately apparent before the extensive grounds come into view. While the privacy on offer is something to behold, the unobstructed panorama stretching along the coast to Bray Head and the Sugarloaf is simply incredible. The house, with influences from Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian eras, measures approximately. 415 sq. m. and is laid out over two levels with three principal reception rooms and five bedrooms. All complemented by an impressive array of period features to include stained glass windows, ornate cornice detailing, marble fireplaces, sash windows and panelled doors to name but a few. In 2018 the entire roof was removed and renewed to the latest building code using traditional Bangor blue slates, Celtic heritage grade. An impressive portico frames the entrance to this gracious double fronted residence, leading into the elegant entrance hall, providing a wonderful welcome to the delights this house has to offer. The ground floor accommodation comprises of two interconnecting reception rooms, the drawing room and dining room, of generous proportions spanning the depth of the house and enjoying stunning view over the manicured gardens. An elegant light filled living room is positioned to the left of the entrance hall and features a deep bay window. Both the Reception and Living Rooms boast magnificent Direct Sea Views of Killiney Bay across to Bray Head, along with the Sugarloaf. The inner hall leads to the large kitchen, pantry, guest cloakroom and an additional room previously in use as a kitchen. Upstairs there are five generous bedrooms including one with en-suite, separate WC, shower room, bathroom and arguably the best home office in South Dublin. From two of the bedrooms and home office there is access to a large balcony with southerly aspect and an amazing direct sea view view that takes in Killiney Beach, Bray Head and the Sugarloaf. A third bedroom on the east side of the property has its own private balcony with direct sea views and overlooking one of the greenhouses. The two acres of grounds and outbuildings all have stories to tell featuring two Victorian timber framed greenhouses with recent renovations including re-glazing and renewed woodwork, allotments with various fruits and vegetables, mature planting, tennis court and specimen trees to include Monkey Puzzle, Redwood, Monterey Cypress and Eucalyptus (all c.150+ years old). Lastly, a garage with covered parking for two vehicles (incl. the original service car pit dating from c.1900) along with a Coach House measuring 80 sq. m presents various opportunities for conversion to a self-contained living space or office space or maintained as present use. This incredible property quite simply must be viewed to be appreciated! More about the location...
